What's New Chez Vous, Les Montures?

Posted by Risa / February 24, 2012

Small, stylish, and succinct describes both the Les Montures boutique on Bernard and the owner Nicolas Hamel's interview style, but the specs speak for themselves. Carefully curated vintage designer eyewear is fun for anyone who loves fashion so it's a small, stylish thrill to get Hamel's insights on what's new at Les Montures...

"My name is Nicolas Hamel, I am the sole owner of Les Montures, North America's premier deadstock eyeglasses and sunglasses shop. Specialized in finding and distributing vintage glasses frames, Les Montures displays a rare and unique collection. Models from renowned brands and small, classic designers - many now impossible to find - are offered in store."

So... what's new chez vous?

"We just received about 100 new eyeglasses. Anything from Dior to Marcolin. We will be received a lot of classic american styles in march (brands like American Optical, Tart and Shady Character). We are working closely with a lot of new photographers, like Monsiieur and Etienne-St-Denis. Our website is being re-done and will be launch mi-march and some renovations are being made in the store."

For the local love bonus, I asked Nicolas about his most memorable recent Montreal meal and shopping experiences, and also asked who else he'd like to see featured here:

Meal?: Voro for meetings and Lawrence for brunch. Petit Italien for a date.

Shopping?: Cahier D'exercice

Who Else?: Umm tough one. Got to rep the neighbourhood with Les Etoffes, Unicorn, Michel Brisson and Epicerie PA. Outside, I am a big fan of Cahier D'exercice, Rooney, Brakeless and Espace Pepin.

What's New Chez Vous is an interview series by Risa Dickens, Yelp Montreal Community Manager and co-founder of Indyish.com. Each column will spotlight new fashions, styles and trends in town and the places local boutique owners love.

Salut Louis,Malheureusement, je vais te de9cevoir pour l aspect pas trop cher ! Ca a un peu e9te9 la msiavuae surprise de la pre9paration. C est impossible de monter un pe9dalier neuf sur ce type de boeetier, ou plutf4t d axe. L unique solution, c est de porter le cadre e0 un pro pour qu il change cet axe e0 l ancienne, par un standard re9cent carre9 . Pour moi, l ope9ration a cofbte9 50€ Je pense que tu peux aller te renseigner dans les boutiques spe9cialise9es, les prix varient, et le travail e0 faire est diffe9rent selon les ve9los (selon s il faut retarauder ou pas le boeetier). Un fois cet axe carre9 monte9, plus de souci, tu peux te faire plaisir avec n importe quel pe9dalier du commerce.Petite remarque en plus, impossible de monter des pe9dales re9centes sur de vieux braquets !Donc il faut tout garder, ou tout changer !

, etc. but I think it’s perfectly adequate for a typical family who are connecting one DVR/Roku and one DVD/Blu-ray player.If you’re wanting to connect 3+ devices, then you probably won’t be interested in this modestly priced television. On the other hand, if you’re average folks like us and are looking for a bargain – you’ll likely enjoy this TV as much as we have.
