There are several things synonymous with Elvis, like rhinestone jumpsuits and TCB necklaces, but perhaps nothing more than the “Nautic” style of sunglasses made by Neostyle. No one can wear this style of sunglasses without Elvis Presley coming to mind and perhaps that is why they are so often chosen by those paying tribute to the king of rock ‘n’ roll. The offered paid is the pinnacle example, adorned with the TCB logo and having been personally owned by Elvis. Specifically created for him, this pair contains the prescription (amber-tinted) lenses he required and were designed by Dennis Roberts of Optique Boutique in Beverly Hills. The gold-tone frames are embellished with the TCB logo and a lightning bolt near each temple applied over the four graduating cutout circles on the arms. The sunglasses measure approximately 6 inches (15.24 cm) wide, 2 inches (5.08 cm) in height and 5 1/5 inches (13.97 cm) in arm length. The sunglasses are accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Graceland Authenticated.



The glasses show expected signs of being worn, with minor wear at the arm hinges and nose pads. Overall, though, they are remarkably well-preserved. NM condition.
