Believe it or not, the one-lensed eyepieces we often associate with 19th century aristocrats, and military commandants, are making a comeback. In the past year, online retailers like Nearsights and The Monocle Shop say sales have TRIPLED. What’s going on? Well, as most fashion trends go, monocles are having their inevitable “retro” moment. Meaning, today’s millennials are embracing them for the same reason they’re embracing tweed jackets, vinyl records, and knitting classes. Because they offer a hip new way to stand out from the crowd – even though monocles have actually been around since the 1700's! Also, it turns out monocles are a perfect accessory for today’s smartphones. James Berry is an eyeglass retailer in San Francisco who says many of his customers are guys in their 40's and 50's who refuse to wear normal reading glasses. But they don’t mind using a prescription monocle. Get this: Monocles are a surprise hit in trendy restaurants. A lot of chefs keep one clipped to their aprons, to help them read recipes and some restaurants offer monocles clipped to the menus, to help customers read the small print in dim light. Want to be hip cool and groovy? Get yourself a monocle.
