…a style of spectacles, popular in the 19th century, which are supported without earpieces, by pinching the bridge of the nose. The name comes from the French for “pinch nose.”

When the term pince nez is brought into discussion on Rock Town Hall, as in, “Please forgive me for wearing the pince nez, but…”, or “Don’t go pince nez on me!” it’s an acknowledgment or accusation that someone is being overly nerdy and picky for even this group of rock nerds.
