      Blame it on wayfarer-wearing hipsters or sexy librarians, but glasses are cool again.

      Prepare to see a long line of four-eyed fashionistas outside Bruce Eyewear (219 Abbott Street) this weekend. The Gastown glasses boutique kicks off their annual eyewear sale at 11 a.m. on Saturday (December 17), and discounts will continue to pop up over the next month.

      Bruce Eyewear carries a constantly updating collection of unique glasses and sunglasses, including hard-to-find labels like Cutler and Gross, Mykita, Paul Smith, Alain Mikli, Ksubi, Jean Maryll, Kirk Originals, Oliver Peoples, and Dita. Styles vary from retro cat-eye frames for ladies, Mad Men-style wire glasses for men, and candy-coloured unisex frames. A selection of sleek, futuristic styles may not help you see into the future, but will keep you looking stylish for years to come.

      Some of the frames and sunglasses included in the sale will be priced at $99, while others will be marked down between 20 to 50 percent. Sale items typically include glasses from the ends of collections, discontinued colours, and collections that the store doesn’t plan on continue carrying. All sale items are final, as is, and without warranty; however, the majority of frames are marked down several hundred dollars. The sale doesn’t include lenses for prescription glasses.
