Best Image Optical releases New Colors for the Arnold by Dolabany Eyewear
This classic design, made popular by Hollywood actors from James Dean in the 1950s to Johnny Depp today, has been distinguished as one of the few models that have been able to successfully capture one of the most iconic looks of mid-century eyewear.

Recreating one of the most iconic looks of the 1950s, Dolabany Eyewear designed the frame with a shield that was custom molded for their exclusive production. All of the line’s retro models are made the old-fashioned way – using high-quality acetate, real rivets, and multi-barrel hinges, the Arnold is no exception. The Arnold showcases functional rivets, seven-barrel hinges and a 45° miter cut at the temple end, capturing true retro features.
Due to the model’s popularity, Dolabany Eyewear continues to reinvent the Arnold by adding two new rich color combinations this season: Blue/Brown and Butterscotch. The model also comes in Black, Black Crystal, Brown Crystal, Crystal Demi, Demi Amber, Ebony Demi, Tiger Olive, and Tiger Black. It is also availble in two eye sizes 44 and 46.

About Best Image Optical
Influenced by members of his family who were dedicated opticians themselves, Mark Dolabany’s involvement in the optical trade began at a very young age. In junior high school he began taking summer jobs, working at an optical store handling and repairing eyeglasses. During a time when glasses were handmade – the old-fashioned way – repairing glasses was not as unusual as it is today. However, his appreciation for the design and production of this era resonated and remained with him throughout his career. Mark Dolabany moved to the United States after high school and worked as an apprentice optician, learning the skillset, professionalism and loyalty that are traditionally seen in the industry throughout Massachusetts. Mark soon gained his Massachusetts license; and after practicing as an optician for a several years, he got involved in wholesale and distribution by establishing Best Image Optical, Inc. He designed his own lines of ophthalmic frames to distribute throughout the New England area called Dolabany Eyewear, which remains to be the core line of the company. He then developed Plume Paris and Mario Galbatti collections. In 1999, the company moved to and still resides in Miami, FL seeking wider distribution opportunities, which included Central and South American countries.
