ABSTRACT
The article discusses the results of an informal survey among optometrists on the trend in eyeglass frames. Sixty percent of the persons ordering frames ask for something sturdy. Actors, teenagers and longshoremen favored the darkest and most robust models. Many wives urge their husbands to buy dark frames to produce a youthful effect. The article also discusses the views of Mike Julian, vice president of advertising agency Roberts & Reimers, who had started the fad of heavy frames.
