The PT85 eyeglass frame is as "no-nonsense" as it's name implies. With an economy of extraneous detail, this frame is a great choice for men or women, particularly for those with a traditional style sensibility.
The construction is a dichotomy of reed-thin metal surrounding the eye area with bold semi-wide metal temples. The materials are crafted from a high-tech method of combining tensile strength with the thinnest appearance possible. The result is a frame that is certainly contemporary, but does not follow current fads. The frontal shape of the PT85 is rectangular, with just enough curve to mitigate the otherwise geoometric design. From the front, particularly the manner in which the temples attach to the frame front, the motif is what can best be described as "engineered chic." The nose pads are soft and entirely adjustable -- a vital feature for those who must use eyewear from morning to night.
There are color choices to suit any flesh tone, eye color or fashion choices. Modern matte black, rich caramel and gunmetal are equally flattering and are in keeping with the frame's motif. The PT85 eyeglass frame is a superb choice for those who know their own style and are not dominated by fashion trend fluctuations.
