Making Spectacles of Yourselves!

Many Knights are known for making spectacles of themselves. Well, I've found a company that is making Spectacles FOR themselves -- and everyone!

Meet Urban Spectacles. According to their web site:
Unlike all other collections of eyewear, those of Urban Spectacles stand apart as being truly hand made with meticulous attention to detail throughout every process of the spectacle's creation. Using the most eccentric and durable hardwoods as material, each pair of eyeglasses is fully customized to meet the specific desires of the individual. As unique as the imagination, the possibilities of eyewear from Urban Spectacles are boundless.

Did you get that? Meeting the desires of the individual. As unique as the imagination. The possibilities are boundless. All great Knight qualities.

For example: Beer Goggles (The term is often humorously applied when an individual is observed making advances towards, later regretting sexual contact with, a partner that is deemed unattractive, unacceptably scandalous, or repulsive when the prospect of sex is considered while sober. The "beer goggles" are considered to have distorted the "wearer's" vision, making unattractive people appear beautiful, or at least passably attractive -- from our friends at Wikipedia).

Made by reusing empty beer bottles, these goggles are a playful take on eyewear. Pick out your favorite beer, or even make the selection based upon and interesting glass (think Delirium), then either drink it down or send it to me and I'll take care of it, and the construction of Beer Goggles will begin. Then I will fit any prescription or tint of lenses into the frames and they will be ready to wear out to your local pub.


Every pair of beer goggles comes with a ring from the chosen brew's bottle. The neck tie is an optional accessory, but can be a bold statement of style or allegiance to your ale.

Here's what Beer Goggles look like on a couple of us.

Note: beer goggles come with disclaimers as they are made of glass and rest near your eyes. While I have worn them out on the town and will be doing so fairly often, I am claiming Beer Goggles to be novelty items that should be worn with caution.
