Gaudet continues to offer visual clarity and a whole lot of style to Haligonians with the courage to look different: Gaudet is not the kind of place where the average, boring pair of spectacles will be found. “The vintage look is really big right now, Buddy Holly-style,” says optician Chris Ross. He says another big draw are titanium and carbon-fibre frames, because they’re “very strong and very lightweight.”
