Glasses not half cool

I have news specs after a looooong search. Not surprisingly they are secondhand (I imagine they belonged to some straight-up clerk-type gent from the '60s or '70s), and from Melbourne. I bought a cool pair of heavy-rimmed frames from the same store, The Melbourne Optical Centre, in the mid-late '90s. The Elizabeth St business has stocked vintage frames for a long time and has done quite a bit of business with me and my siblings over the years. My other new pair (also from Melbourne, but a different store), are great but they pinch my nose. I do like them so, though.
