Patrick Moore the much loved astronomer died in December 2012 aged 89. He was as famous for his monocle as he was for sharing his passionate enthusiasm about astronomy.
Unfortunately, monocles experienced a fall from grace due to their popularity with German military officials - a group most people wanted to distance themselves from after World War II.
Now after 70 years the monocle is seeing a renaissance. Luckily, at Dead Men's Spex we sell modern galleried monocles complete with cord and reading lens for £28.50 and original vintage Victorian rolled gold monocles as and when we can source them.
