    So I've added a new pair of glasses on top of my everyday wear specs..I must say this is very 'hipster' of me, but people say that I pull it off rather well.. What do you guys think . PS I do have contacts which I most of the time, but sometimes geek chic has its moments

    So everyone, show me your best spectacles pics!


    Oh and yes let the barrage of the hipster jokes flow in! icon_lol.gificon_lol.gif

    In the 80s, those would have been nerd glasses. You are looking cute in them though.

    They make you look very young and cute.

    I think you have the grown up and manly thing nailed in your other photos, though. Works better for me. icon_smile.gif

    Fivealive saidSo everyone, show me your best spectacles pics!

    Had a funny thing happen with my new glasses the other day (these are the same ones I ran over with the car when only 2 weeks old, and my friends rushed their remake down to me during the SMART Ride bicycle event the middle of November).

    So I was in the hospital recovery room after surgery Monday, and a nurse handed me my glasses as I was coming around. "These are really beautiful glasses," she said, which kinda surprised me. I've NEVER had a stranger tell me something like that unprompted.

    I don't have anybody to take my pic at the moment, but here are the glasses alone, on a red towel:

    The titanium frame is grey on the inside, charcoal outside:

    The edges all around, top and bottom, have a red pinstripe accent, never saw that before:

    Will try to add a pic wearing them later today.

    Yeah, the 100% titanium frame is very thin & light, and the lenses are ultra-high index, to keep them thin & light, too. Otherwise with my high prescription they'd be even more Coke-bottle in thickness than you see here. I also have their edges beveled in such a way as to create the optical illusion of less thickness.

    I think they look good on you.....just curious as to why are sleeping in them...... I have Clark Kent ones myself, but I always feel nerdy wearing them.

    Funny that you bring this up. I was just trying on a friends glasses and saying how I wanted to give glasses another go. I've been wearing contacts literally since like elementary school lol.

    And yes, they look nice on you icon_smile.gif I don't think I could pull off the big frames though.

    Those are not bad, look like some that a few celebrities have. Funny thing is that my friend has some that look sort of like it, but the bottom part on his is made of clear plastic so they make his glasses look like woman's glasses.

    I had those in the eighties! They are still rattling around in some drawer. Anyhow, you look better in them than I did.

    You don't want reading glasses to wear just for the look. Even the lowest magnification will drive you batty. Just get a pair of frames with plain lenses.

    And Jeandeau, you do NOT need glasses to look hot!
