Which Type of Pince-Nez is Best for Me?

This is a question sometimes posed by those emailing the Renaissance and it is a valid one.

The authors of this blog full-time, pince-nez wearers and are devoted to the rimless style. While this style suits almost everyone, others may not like the minimalist appearance and may want a mounting which is more conspicuous.

Any pince-nez makes a bold statement showing everyone that your eyeglasses mark you as rugged individualist who follows his/her own path. If you choose to wear a pince-nez, whether it befingerpiece, hoop spring, astig clip, oxford or any other type: rimless or rimmed ---- great! As long as it is comfortable and remains securely attached to the bridge of the nose, you'll be fine.

Curly in Pince-Nez

LeDandy loves starting the weekend mornings with a Three Stooges video or two. This morning I watched the classic clip All the World's a Stooge (1941). In this short, the boys are mistaken for refugee children by a rich a couple. Preposterous? Absolutely. But that is the beauty of the Stooges.

In the beginning of the short, Curly pulls a tooth while he is playing a dentist. To do the dental work, Curly puts on his pince-nez with ribbon cord. Please note that Curly is not wearing his pince-nez properly as it shouldn't be so far down on his nose.

LeDandy and Cat

LeDandy hasn't forgotten about this blog. He's been quite busy with his main blog, LeDandy (of Northern California). Today I experimented with the self-timer on my camera and came up with this unusual lighting, highlighting my pince-nez.
