Wednesdays with Dr. Brad Newton!!!

Written by on October 28th 2011
Wow…this Mykita frame looks so retro on Brad!  The warm yellow hue as well as the softly curved shape are super flattering.  The glasses are big enough to give him a large viewing area, but do not overwhelm his face.  His button-down shirt is awesome as usual with its western style embroidery. The turquoise bolo tie stands out against the neutral colors of Brad’s outfit…although the newly grown mustache is what completes the look!
Did you know that even when it gets cold and gray outside this winter, you will still need sunglasses to protect your eyes?  UV rays from the sun are always there…and can cause early development of cataracts and a host of other vision-hampering problems.  Sunglasses protect you from wind exposure, which is a must in Chicago!  
Check out the awesome photoshoot in Z Magazine (Switzerland Edition)…the model is wearing Mykita frames.  Stop in at Eye Spy to see them in person!!!

Wednesdays with Dr. Brad Newton!!!

We just can’t get enough of Dr. Newton’s sweet shirts!  How can one person have so many cool clothes?  This button-down trucker shirt is a barrel o’fun…ha:)

If there was a spokesman for Rapp, Brad would be it.  He seems to be able to rock any Rapp frame including this model “Tom”.  We love the modern take on a vintage shape.
The glasses outline the shape of his eyes, they follow his brow line and accent his retro shirt.  The honey color is great with his complexion and fair hair. 

Hmmm, I wonder what he’ll wear next?!  Find out in person by getting an exam next Wednesday…

All hope abandon, ye who enter here…

Ahoy, hope everyone is ready to unleash their inner pirate for international Talk Like a Pirate Day on September 19th!  It looks like Dr. Newton is ready, with his parrot and his wicked glasses.

The Anne et Valentin frames Brad wore yesterday were worthy of a pirate and his cool shirt sure sealed the deal :)  We think that it is fantastic the way these frames follow his eyebrow line.  The dark to light hue is so modern and the model comes in so many varieties of colors!  Dr. Brad Newton is here to give exams every Wednesday from 12-7pm….so come on by and get your peepers checked.

What a bummer, the Seafood Market across the street isn’t open yet :(  Oh, well…today is the perfect day for fishing and swimming and Dr. Newton is prepared with his fishing rod, swimming goggles, and a spectacular shirt to boot!
Here, at Eye Spy, we adore these swim goggles from Liberty Sport.  They have ultra-soft thermoplastic padding for a shockproof and watertight seal, and adjustable head strap and bridge.  Did we mention that they also come in super fun colors such as green, blue, and purple?   
Rock them wtih a pair of trivex, shatterproof lenses, and you are all set for a day of fun in the sun!!!

Wednesdays with Dr. Brad Newton!

Dr. Brad Newton and I stopped by our neighbors, Chicago Music Exchange, and guess who we saw?  Rob, the drum manager, wearing the Francis Klein frames he purchased at Eye Spy!  So, Brad picked up a djembe and Rob grabbed a tar hand drum and they started banging away…dum, ditty, dum, ditty, dum, dum, dum.
Dr. Newton is wearing his very own Rapp frame.  Rapp is a small company out of Toronto that hand-crafts all of their frames.  They only make 30 pairs of each model for the whole world to see (and buy!), so they are very exclusive!  Stop by while they are still  25% off, through the month of August…and don’t forget about our Sunglass (and more) Sale that ends August 31st.

Wednesdays with Dr. Brad Newton!!!

What’s black, white, and red all over?  Dr.Brad Newton after a shaving accident!  Just kidding, it’s actually Brad wearing vibrant red Theo glasses and an awesome black and white button-down shirt… 
This model, soixante+5, is super retro with its perfectly round shape and keyhole bridge.  The fire engine red hue is a head-turner, but if red is not exactly your style…it comes in 9 other colors including white, blue, and green!  The whole Theo collection is handmade in Belgium and each piece is like a unique piece of art.

Thursday with Dr. Karen Squier!!!

Written by on July 28th 2011
Dr. Karen Squier is filling in for for Dr. Brad Newton this week, yee haw!  Since he knew that he wasn’t going to be here, he graciously left this awesome fringed shirt for Karen to wear for the Shirt of the Week….and apparently, Dr. Brad wore this shirt on-stage when he performed with Dolly Parton at Allstate Arena (formerly known as Rosemont Horizon)!!
This shirt is super unique, so we combined it with these one-of-a-kind Rapp frames.  She is so excited to be sporting these gorgeous purple striated cat-eye glasses. 
Dr. Newton is normally in on Wednesdays and Dr. Squier is on Saturdays.  Don’t forget to stop in for your annual eye exam and check in every Wednesday for our Shirt of the Week!!!

Wednesdays with Dr. Brad Newton!!!

Written by on July 20th 2011
Every week Dr. Brad Newton pleasantly surprises us with his vast array of funky shirts.  He is our guitar-playing, chart-wielding, in-house Optometrist on Wednesdays!  He sure knows how to rock color, so we thought…why not pair his shirt with these hot-pink Mykita sunglasses?

The Mykita Cyrus model, seen below, is a limited run with only 200 pairs sold world-wide.  The frame features the etchings of two separate skylines including Manhattan and the Pyramids of Giza.  Both versions are available here at Eye Spy Optical =)

Also, did you notice the amazing gig bag the doctor is holding?  This custom-made bag is created by local artist and … long-time customer Ricardo Salazar.  What a coincidence!!!  His company Arte Salazar makes one-of-a-kind gig bags, straps, and instruments.  Check him out at thttp://www.artesalazar.com/index.html
