Prince Nez Eyeglasses

This man has quiet the dapper style going here. Nice jacket and tie, and he is sporting not only a full blown mustache, he has those unique eyeglasses that do not have the earpieces. I believe this style of eyeglass is called the Prince Nez eyeglass. In any event he is certainly well groomed.


  1. That would be "pince-nez" from the French "pincer" (to pinch) and :nez: (nose).

  2. That is a monocle. One (mono) eyepiece. Lord Peter Wimsey had one, but it was a magnifying glass which he used in his detecting. Apparently, wearing a monocle has become a lost art, rather like wearing a fig leaf without suspenders.
