Greetings Internet Monkey,
The New York Times has declared that the monocle is back in the recent article ‘One Part Mr. Peanut, One Part Hipster Chic’ by Allen Salkin.
While I appreciate that the New York Times is an esteemed publication and historically held up as the holy grail for freelance writers, I still have to express the following: Duh and/or hello.
Monocles are badass and as far as I’m concerned they never went out of style to begin with. No, monocles are more like the unicorn of eye wear. You may
go you’re entire life without seeing one, but for the pure of heart who are graced with it’s presence it is truly a magical experience.
The dapperness of a monocle is beyond compare. It’s like a classy eye patch that you can see through. I for one would be ecstatic if they became a
fashion trend and were readily available in every mall in an assortment of styles and colours.
But alas, that day is not today. Do not despair, Venus & Mars has a solution for you.
We carry MONOCLES and MONOGOGGLES (for when you need to be classy
and a cyborg). You too can join the ever growing micro-trend before it explodes into the mainstream.
Below is a video that explains how to wear one of these uniquely awesome accessories.
What do you think of the monocle trend? How much do you dig it? Let us know in the comments below.
Everyone knows someone who wants a monocle. Why not share this with them over Facebook, Twitter or by email?
Until we meet again,
