Buddy Holly 50s glasses

Here you can see Buddy Holly's world-famous glasses, original from the 1950s. Holly bought two pairs of glasses from Courtland Eyewear in the 1950s that were made by a Mexican company. Holly loved to wear big glasses and stand out. That worked pretty well too, as Holly became famous a short time later. Buddy Holly sadly died in a plane crash on February 3, 1959 in Mason City, Iowa, USA. The singer's glasses were one of the few items that could still be found at the scene of the accident. It's not easy and rare, but sometimes we find Baddy Holly's model. We also have many other interesting glasses models for you. As you can see, there is a lot to discover and browse.
