"I'll second the recommendation for Zenni Optical. i use them whenever I have to wear glasses, and their optical quality is astonishing at any price. And they have such a huge selection that it's hard to go wrong.
"I'm having the worst time finding glasses currently.
If you go to any standard "chain" optometry store, there are practically no choices other than that exceedingly ugly, sever rectangle look.
I want perfectly round,…"
"I was reminded of Pinaud Clubman when I read the AoM article about how to smell like a barbershop. As a kid, I used to go to the barber, and he always had bottles of that gold liquid with the burma-green label and top-hat-sporting dandy. I…"
