They are never seen on the faces of the working class. Instead, they are the exclusive province of [[BlueBlood titled nobility]], [[OfficerAndAGentleman high ranking military officers]], upper-echelon businessmen, academics, etc. They are also exclusively worn by men -- though lesbians in the early 20th century sometimes used them for a [[{{Bifauxnen}} subtly masculine edge]]. Monocles were available to the lower classes, but proper manufacture and fitting made them very expensive. Cheaper versions were of poor quality and very uncomfortable to wear.

* Fugue, one of [[BigBad Count Waltz's]] lackeys in ''VideoGame/EternalSonata''. In the PlayStation3 UpdatedRerelease of the game, it earns him the mean nickname "three-eyed freak" from Salsa. Even March uses it, which is unusual, given her [[RedOniBlueOni Blue Oni]] status to Salsa's Red Oni. Naturally, it really tees Fugue off. "Little girl, I hope you aren't referring to me."

* The sitcom ''Series/JustShootMe'' had an episode guest-starring [[ThirdRockFromTheSun French Stewart]] as the puppeteer of the [[ShowWithinAShow sock puppet show]], and the puppet "Mr. Mayor" is noted to wear tiny spectacles and a monocle, redundantly enough.

* MadMen featured a decade long's worth of women in gloves (1960-1970), mostly worn by the conservative, working, adult women. They often take them off when they're at home or the office.
