Jack Rohrback invented the browline glasses design in 1947. He was the vice president of the eyeglasses company: Shuron Ltd. During the 1950s, the browline glasses gained popularity, and their sales rose, making them a wanted accessory. In the 1960s, browline style glasses decreased because of the availability of plastic glasses but worked their way back to fame when Bruce Willis rocked a pair of browline glasses in his movie Moonlighting. As a result, Ray-Ban introduced the clubmaster glasses as traditional browline glasses frames with sunglasses lenses.
Browline glasses fashion continued developing more by creating more patterns and colours, even so appearing on the big screen in Mad Men with their tortoiseshell browline glasses.
So, are browline glasses in style now? This renewed spark pushed people to purchase the classic yet retro browline glasses, making them must-have statement-making pieces.
