Frame O' the Day: Soixante+Un from Theo

Designed by Patrick Hoet and Serge Bracke, this is worth the selection alone for the comedy that is listening to me try to pronounce "Soixante". Really guys? you couldn't stick with something like frame # 6 or something so simpletons (meaning me) could seem less unsophisticated? (Check out that alliteration. Not bad for someone with a room temperature IQ.)

In any event, even a dullard (yes, me again) can appreciate the beauty of this green/yellow and orange tiger stripe cat-eye frame. Don't worry, our resident cat-eye expert, Cailin, has been kept at arms length as to prevent her from drooling on or absconding with the frame. But hurry- myself and Rudy are old and are prone to bribery with baked goods. Claim it today before we cave in.

Oh look!...cookies! I love cookies.

New arrivals from John Varvatos...


Beautiful sun and optical models have arrived... no word if Rudy will honor my request and grow out his hair like Questlove from the Roots...but we're hoping so.

Happy Thanksgiving!!

We hope all of our customers have a happy Thanksgiving holiday. We will be closed Thursday in order to gorge ourselves on all of that delicious Thanksgiving food... (I wanted a Thanksgiving pizza and chocolate chip cookies but I was out voted...again). The good news is that if you can make it off of your couch we WILL be open both Friday 10-6 and Saturday 10-5. Even Doctor Larry (pictured above...wait a minute, that's NOT Doctor Larry)... in any event the REAL Doctor Larry will be here 10-6 on Friday if you need a new RX or contact lens fitting. Call for appointment 410-528-1877.

Just curious...

 Every now and then (and by that we mean EVERY week) we get emailed pics of various celebrities (or pseudo-celebrities) wearing a designers eyeglasses or sunglasses... like the "Hayes" from Mosley Tribes worn first by Demi Moore (above)... and later by her reportedly soon to be ex-husband Ashton Kutcher (below). Interesting... could the reason Demi is dumping him because he "borrows" her fashion accessories? I wonder who gets "Hayes" in the divorce agreement? The good news is that we have over 1500 unique sunglasses in stock at Paris West...so there's no need to share with your significant other...stop in and claim yours...before your ex does.

"Whisper" from Sama. In stock now.


We have the Black/Teal and Black/Ink in stock now. More colors to follow or they can be special ordered. A great sunglass that is fully Rx-able. Stop in and try one on.

New L.A. Eyeworks...coming soon


 It's been a little while since we've gotten some new stuff from L.A. Eyeworks... but that's about to change. Here's a sneak peak at some of the new models we will have in our grubby little hands in just a few short weeks. (Actually our hands aren't REALLY grubby we wash them...regularly...I swear.)
 Don't forget the Holiday season is right around the corner... one of these would make for a much sweeter gift than a tie... or a sweater vest. (We have gift cerificates available too).

Awards are cool...

 ...said in our best Beavis and Butthead voices. Quite honestly we've been around so long that we were in business when these two were first on TV. (Yeah... like almost 20 years ago or something)... but no matter how long we've been here, winning awards never seems to grow old. Unlike myself or Rudy...we have no problem with the growing (judging by our waistlines) or old part.
In all seriousness, (whatever that means), we appreciate the award and would like to thank all of the people who have helped us achieve it... our great staff, our vendors and sales reps who bring us the newest and coolest products, and most importantly our loyal customers- some of you have been there from the very beginning. We promise to continue to work as hard as possible to earn your support.

Thank you again,
Jordan and the entire staff here @ Paris West.

Frame O' the Day: Oasis from BOZ

We were pleased to be visited by my good friend (and depressed Steelers fan- ha ha) Steven Spandau last week. Fortunately despite his questionable taste in football teams (how does someone from Brooklyn become a Steelers fan anyway?) he has exquisite taste in eyewear. He brought with him the brand new Fall 2011 collections for both  J.F. Rey and BOZ. Always a favorite around these parts, (I think Cailin drooled on at least 3 models) I'd go out on a limb and say that this release from this French design house could be the best to date. We have a lot to show you in stock...check out our facebook pages in the coming weeks for more, but one of the models that we all loved is the Oasis. In 4 unbelievable color combinations and with exquisite detailing on the temples these are like little works of art. We currently have all of the color options in stock...but that won't last long. Stop in and try one on soon. (we wiped the drool off...I promise)
