Note by Ahhh Girl 28 October 2014: I merged two thread into this one. Posts 26 and 27 were a thread titled "What type of glasses did John wear in "Rain" and "Paperback Writer" promotional videos?". Post 28 was a thread titled "How I Won The War/Walls And Bridges Glasses".

Not sure if these are available outside the UK.

(the site seems to be falling over a bit today, but refresh and you'll get there eventually)

I've ordered some frames on a 7-day home trial. Ellie: "Oh God, you're turning into a tribute band…"

The JL09B and JL10B ones look good – very retro. The first ones are in the style he wore in 1962-3 (eg, but I can't place the 10Bs. 1970s?

Please don't spoil my day; I'm miles away

Rush? Really? (facepalms) 



If I seem to act unkind, it's only me, it's not my mind that is confusing things.

Eagle Eyewear made John Lennon Glasses in the mid 90s. (Regular & Sunglasses)  I bought a pair called "The Dreamer".  They were styled after the glasses he wore in the Imagine video.  These were "oficially licensed" and had JL promotional displays which I asked the store to hold for me.  I have them somewhere.

I feel like I'd be showing off my naivety like a peacock if I say "There's a John Lennon line of glasses?!" I think when I was younger, I looked into getting a pair of granny glasses, but learned *much* later that rectangular frames suit me much better.

Two for one isn't too bad on those glasses, but paying about $200 for one pair would be a bit steep for me!

Sorry they didn't work out!

Just to weigh in, I like Rush OK. What I've heard basically on the radio, anyways.

I'd love to have these shades - just like the ones he wore at the NYC gig in 1972.
