The Ainsley is a contradiction. It’s first appearance is that of a heavy frame. The front being almost reminiscent of the Michel Cain era of solid black frames. The reality being that the frame, without lenses, weighs a mere 17g!
This is definitely the frame to wear if you wish to be noticed. Apart from the strong front, the bright yellow sides with black sides, makes this a fairly unique frame.
Made from TR-90 thermoplastic material, the Ainsley is very suitable for varifocal lenses and would make a good pair of driving sunglasses by the addition of a grey tint, or virtually any other colour tint you want.
