Pince-Nez in Paris

You may not see pince-nez worn by people on every street corner in Paris, but this eyewear style appears to be better received in France than in the US. LeDandy recently received a thoughtful letter from a pince-nez enthusiast in Paris. According to his account, many opticians in Paris are capable and motivated to work with pince-nez mountings. This is in sharp contrast to my personal experiences and those of my colleague.

Our Paris reader wears pince-nez, and like myself, can't imagine wearing any other eyeglass style.
