A certain kind of professorial glasses peaked around the 20s—so we’re happy to see Oliver Peoples indulging in a throwback or two. These are one of three frames from the newly launched Oliver Peoples Vintage collection—replicas of OP’s first collection in 1987, which were originally modeled after 20s-era deadstock. It boils down to intricate nosepieces and Indy-style tortoise shells frames—the opposite number to the thick-framed glasses making their way through the Williamsburgs of the world.
