Foreign intrigue, martini glasses, and movies set on the Italian Riviera -- all visions that come to mind with the Moscow eyeglass frame. This frame is based on the well known aviator standard, but this is assuredly not your father's aviator frame. Beginning with the shape, this thin and light metal frame works for women as well as men. The modified square shape cuts a powerful figure, but the size is smaller than the classic aviator, and the rounded edges flatter many face shapes.
From an optician's standpoint, the Moscow frame is an easy recommendation due to the snug spring hinges and adjustable nose pads. This frame suits the composition of many facial features because the fit is flexible. Each wearer feels as though this frame has been custom adjusted to their face individually. The aviator bar across the bridge area gives the appearance that classic panache, but actually lends strength to the frame front during busy days at work when the glasses may be going on and off. Although the Moscow has that air of sophistication, it is certainly rugged enough for workouts as well.
The thin metal is further enhanced by the color choices. There is a sleek coffee tone and a gunmetal. Both of these color choices are subdued and attractive. A third choice is the Gold/Demi Amber frame. This frame color incorporates a touch of fresh radiance. The Moscow frame is a wise choice any way you look at it.
