    We've always thought that it was a shame that Steven Alan didn't make glasses, if only for the fact that a pair of "Steven Alan"-esque specs were so easy to imagine. We fellow four-eyes appreciate a well-made, timelessly practical, slightly nerdy style, and we've always vibed so well with Steven Alan's buttoned-up bumpkin POV. Thankfully, it seems like that oversight has been vision-corrected. Announced today, Steven Alan has released a spankin'-new eyewear line that's just as good as we imagined.

    Says Steven, "We've been selling other branded eyewear since day one with a very positive reaction so we were inspired to think about developing our own line of eyewear with prescription capabilities." The new unisex glasses will range from $145 for sunglasses to $195 for optical frames with prescription lenses, and $245 for prescription sunglasses. Shop for the glasses immediately at, where you can also virtually fit frames to your face, and sign up for home try-ons (you'll be shipped six trial frames to try out with free second-day shipping and returns). Specs will also be available in select Steven Alan stores.
