In the 60s, I started to go to the clubs of Nottingham, starting with the Dungeon, then the Beachcomber, the Boat Clubs (the Boat, Brit and Union) and then many of the others which sprang up. They started playing Mod and Soul music which I had heard covered by the many British bands being formed but these were the originals and had a huge impact on my life. I started playing some of this music on my podcasts on Mixcloud, an attempt to get across to the listener what life was like hearing loud music for the first time and dancing in those dark cellars or small rooms to those vibrant throbbing sounds. A very good example of some of the first music I heard at this iconic club is one entitled 'Dungeon Days'.
We started out in 2016 with a mission to show how original vintage eyewear made decades ago is highly fashionable, sustainable and of the very best hand made quality.
Our experts are always on the look out for original vintage and retro glasses. Our vintage frame selection covers a range of vintage and retro designer brands including the sought after NHS collection and frames across the decades from the 1940's to the 1980's.
We love to be bold and think that everybody should feel individual in their glasses. Our vast collection of frames and lens combinations means that anybody can become a fashion ambassador and create their own, totally unique style.
With us, you never have to compromise. Our fully qualified opticians can tailor any of our frames to your prescription at our specialist lab. Plus, they’ll always be on hand to answer any questions you have about your prescription and advise on our lens collection.
