There is something solid about the number 68. It was the year when the Anno Domini calendar became the prevalent method in Europe and soon the world for naming years. It was the year Nero was ousted as Emperor of Rome. It was also the year Buddhism arrived in China. 68 is considered in mathematics to be a happy number, where you replace the number by the sum of the squares of its digits, and repeat the process until the number equals 1 (where it will stay), or it loops endlessly in a cycle which does not include 1. More importantly for us and hopefully for you, sixty-eight is the name we gave to this frame. It is a sharp looking classically styled frame with a modern cutting edge and lightweight feel. Whether one is the teacher or the student, it looks great at any age. No wonder it is one of our most popular styles. The sixty-eight is available in Walnut, White/Crystal, Smoke/Crystal, Black/Crystal, and Grainy Green. Try a pair on for yourself today and like me, you will want one for yourself.
