Super Nez T Shirt

Get this Shirt from Red Bubble

Pince-nez are a type of spectacle that pinches the nose without earpieces. It doesn’t really look like this dude is wearing such eyeglasses. They’re too thick and boxy, so my next thought is that this is some character in some sort of entertainment. But, how am I supposed to figure this out?

Maybe it has something to do with this Canadian nut job that keeps people from drunk driving?

Your comment caption cracked me up! I’m here to solve the mystery. The name “Super Nez” has nothing to do with the glasses you mention. This fellow is none other than the enormously talented Michael Nesmith of The Monkees fame. He has always been affectionatley known as “Nez” by friends and admirers. This shot is from The Monkees TV series (1966-68) where he was dressed as a “Monkee Man” – a comical superhero parody. Hence the name “Super Nez.” If you’re not familiar with Nesmith and his work, definitely do look him up. You won’t be sorry. He’s a gifted singer and songwriter well-loved and admired throughout the music industry and around the world. He also pioneered the concept of creating music videos and the idea of producing a program of such for television. He started the precursor to MTV, PopClips, which was eventually bought and turned into the MTV of the 80’s. The man is a genius.
