A Big No-No for Pince-Nez Wear

Pince-nez should never, never be worn far down on the nose as pictured here. For some reason, many people believe that pince-nez should be worn in this position. I've seen it on ads for cheap, modern readers as well as ads on eBay by sellers who have no idea about this eyewear. It is impractical to wear them this way and it looks pretentious. You don't want the glasses to restrict your breathing!

If you insist on wearing eyeglasses that rest on the tip of your nose, switch to spectacles.
