But Jack Cohen was one of the first to see them as a fashion accessory?in 1927 he started selling more stylized designs from a pushcart in Manhattan. His foresight paid off, as Cohen's Fashion Optical now operates in more than 100 retail outlets throughout the country. Since then, Cohen's offerings have expanded, of course, to include eye exams, contacts, sunglasses, and clip-on sunglasses for those without pierced ears.
