I just heard about a store in LA called 'Retrospecs' in the NYTimes (http://travel2.nytimes.com/top/featu...=1086282834850) The description reads: "This one-of-a-kind showroom has a definitive archive of every American-made eyeglass frame from the 1920s through the '40s. They can custom-fit frames and create lens shapes and colors for their vintage frames." Anyone heard anything about this store? This stuff is also sold at Robert Marc in NYC. Just curious if I should be considering them for my next glasses purchase... LA Guy?

I think that's the store where McCoy bought Kirk's glasses in "The Search for Spock."
