Shuron Made in the USA Eyewear, All the Classics. (video transcript)
Hi. I’m Georgia, fashion eyewear specialist here at ReadingGlasses.com.
Today is a special treat for me. I get to present a class of products that makes us especially proud to showcase. Products made right here in the good ol’ U.S. of A.
“Buy American” is a nice slogan, but it’s more than a mere sentiment. It’s an acknowledgement that craftsmanship is alive and well in this country. To prove the point we’ll be looking at a Made in America collection with a rich history. Here is a collection from Shuron based in Greenville, South Carolina.
The Shuron collection of frames has been around for more than one hundred and forty years. Do the math. That’s when the flag just had 38 stars and before there was even Coca-Cola. The name might sound a little foreign but it is 100 percent American.
The pince-nez, most notably associated with President Teddy Roosevelt, where popular glasses of the day. A common problem with them was that they would often fall off the bridge of the nose. That’s until an enterprising company came up with a design to alleviate that problem. Naturally they wanted the name to communicate the benefit.
So they came up with, Shuron, as in the glasses would stay “sure on” your notes. Shuron’s current look is more of 50’s/60’s retro but they are still 100 percent made in America. In fact Shuron has never stopped manufacturing these same frames since the 50’s and 60’s. And they pride themselves in maintaining the level of quality and craftsmanship that created their original success.
Now let’s take a look at some of the models.
This is the Ronsir. If you’ve ever watched a movie set in the 50’s and 60’s “JFK,” “L.A. Confidential,” “Malcolm X” and so many more. You’ve no doubt seen these beauties in action. Part of their charm lies in the proportions of the design itself and the interesting marriage of materials. Now the best part is how they flatter the wearer while exuding a definite, no I did not get dressed to impress you. Ronsir is available in the original period colors and a variety of sizes. Narrow, average, and wide. Guarantee you’ll find a perfect fit. One of our customer reviews of Ronsir described them as the most perfect glasses for a human.
As you might expect Ronsir comes in lots of lens choices from clear single vision to no line progressive to reading sunglasses.
This is the Ronsir Revelation. A slightly smaller, feminized version of the classic Ronsir. like it’s Big Brother, the Revelation is an example of what is called “brow-line” glasses. Now the term comes from how the frame follows the curves that you see when you focus on a person’s eyebrows. The style’s popularity has made a comeback in recent years with a rising interest in retro style.
Here we have the Freeway. The Freeway is an unapologetic hunk of translucent plastic fashioned into a work of art. The bold, chunky, super durable frame evokes images of Hollywood’s leading men, both on and off screen. Freeway presents a timeless look with a fit and finish that has to be held in petted to be fully appreciated. ReadingGlasses.com offers Freeway and a full range of sizes. Narrow, regular, average, and extra wide. And we carry them in the original colors from Carrie Grant black to translucent Crystal. Naturally you can equip your Freeway with the lenses of your choice: clear single vision, no line progressives, reading sunglasses, you name it.
All of Shuron’s quality frames are made right here in the US. That’s rare these days. Which makes it that much more wonderful.
