Focusers: Distinctive, Classic Eyewear for the Discerning Gentleman

The following is a message from one of Ivy Style’s loyal sponsors.

Focusers is renowned for premium quality tortoise shell, metal and rimless eyewear. We offer classic frame styles, from our Windsors frames based on Ben Franklin’s original metal ovals on through traditional Ivy League frames of the mid-twentieth century.

Elegant gold and silver rimless eyewear as well as round metal frames are also very popular with our clientele. All Focusers frames can be prepared by our expert opticians with prescription lenses, as readers, bifocals or progressives, with or without sunglass tinting. You can also order them as frame-only, with demo lenses that your local optician can use as a template to prepare vision correcting lenses. Our entire collection can be viewed at Among Ivy aficionados seeking frames to complement and enhance their garb, the following frames are most popular:

Peabody-Pierce Trim-Frame Poor Boys #8 (shown above)

Though these frames are available in four colors, Honey Demi (shown above) and Autumn Blaze are most favored. The lively tortoise shell pattern combined with curving P-3 enhanced ovals and slight bump-ridged keyhole bridge provide a traditional, stylish accent about your eyes.

Governor’s Poor Boys

Very similar to Peabody #8, Governor’s Poor Boys have a slightly wider front width, with longer, more slender hinge area, a flattened key hole bridge and a shortened rim height. The Honey Amber version (shown above) appear smokey and slightly translucent, as if poured directly from a honeycomb.


The warm umbers and gold amber of these curved rectangular rimmed frames swirl and mix in a vaporous pattern that creates a soft, undulating glow in sunlight. These traditional, classic frames have made a major comeback in both inner city colleges as well as Ivy League universities and are seen on the famous faces of entertainers and musicians.


Focusers oval shaped Windsors come in two sizes and colors: the historically authentic 38 mm rim width and the more modern 42mm, in either matte gold or pewter. Though saddle bridged Windsors are accurate replicas, they are updated with spring hinges that allow provide a comfortable. And the coiled-metal wrap-around temple cables circle your ears to keep them secure on your face. If you prefer this style with more modern “elbow” shaped temples, we also offer Peabody Pierce Trim Frame Windsors.

Rimless Frames

Focusers rimless frames come in a variety of styles and colors, and are available in six lens shapes. Made with gold or silver plated stainless steel, our rimless frames are an elegant addition to a well-appointed ensemble.

Focusers Sunglasses

You can have your Focusers eyewear in a variety of sunglasses shades, with or without prescription or bifocal lenses. All Focusers frames include free UV protection and anti-scratch protection. Pictured below are Peabody-Pierce #8 P3 style frames with traditional G-15 green tinting.
