Like many children of the ’80s, I grew up with HBO, which meant a lot of comic book movies. I still count Batman Returns as one of the best films of all time, And Superman was always playing on a loop. Outside of Indiana Jones, Clark Kent/Superman was super swoon worthy, especially since he was Christopher Reeve in real life. (Rest in peace, kind sir.)
I recently ordered a couple pairs of retro inspired frames from EyeBuyDirect, and when I saw the second pair, I knew they were special. They’re my Clark Kent glasses. I mean, there’s something to be said for being a mild-mannered copywriter, especially since my superhero power is making costumes. Enjoy this vintage trip back to the Daily Planet.
