What are Pince-nez glasses?
Pince-nez have been around since the 4th century and come in 4 different varieties. The Pince-Nez frame is a vintage-designed style of glasses that became iconic when Teddy Roosevelt started wearing the style in the early 20th century. The Pince-Nez frame stays on the face without earpieces, just by slightly pinching the bridge of your nose.
AiiNAAK sees the Pince-Nez as a brand piece, a stylish tribute to the past. One part Roosevelt, one part young urban creative, this frame is an eye-catching piece that is bound to be a conversation starter.AiiNAAK sees the Pince-Nez as a brand piece, a stylish tribute to the past.
Are Pince-nez comfortable?
Designed in California and handmade in New York from high-quality Titanium, the Pince-Nez frames are as durable as they are stylish.
AiiNAAK uses the Fits-U variety Pince-nez where the wearer pinches onto a pair of levers located above or in front of the bridge to open the plaquettes and release the levers to allow them to close onto the nose of the wearer. AiiNAAK has taken the once vintage style frame and reimagined it for the modern world.
They clip comfortably on the bridge of your nose when you need to see near and will not cause headaches, unlike many glasses with temple arms.
