Previously the patron saint of nebbish frames, Moscot’s put together a pretty impressive catalog over the past few years—including a few frames that are a good deal more sleek than the thick black squares you’re used to. Case in point: these newly released Grovers. It’s a shape that’s surprisingly hard to come by these days: a little less boxy and a little more goggley than the sharp corners Moscot built their name on. It’s the same hazy, bookish acetates, but a little more adventurous and a whole lot less professorial. Which, all told, is probably a good thing.
