Do you like the nerd glasses that are back in style?
If so what is your favourite look and or brand?
These should go well with your sneakers and contrasting jeans.
I dislike them. There are some exceptions, and these are people who suit them well. So far I have met only one such person. Most would look better with a different style. Get what suits your face, not what is cool.
They look good on some people, they look bad on some people.
I would love to see waloshin's Create A Thread Word Wheel. That must be how he does it so consistently, right?
What is considered a clic type of glasses?
Not my cup of tea really
No sir I do not like them, but I don't understand fashion that much.
Well then, I believe nerdy and chic are mutually exclusive.
Which are you going for, random adoration or random ridicule?
I have some Prada ones, but would far prefer getting my eyes lasered.
Oliver Goldsmith, and
Cutler and Gross.
Any style; if it suits .
Maybe I'm old, but I can't understand the appeal of the hipster style. The thing I hate the most is the trend for guys to buy super skinny jeans that don't fit. You look dumb, buy pants that fit Having said that, some girls look quite hot with nerd glasses. I guess it depends on the person. If it fits with their natural style then it's OK, but if they wear that stuff because they think it will make them look cool, then they usually end up looking lame.
A) New Wayfarer
B) Old Wayfarer
What looks better?
I can't tell a difference. Other than the new ones look a little more curved down (The left part that goes behind the ear is lower), and a little different shade of black?
I like and have the New Wayfarer for my sunglasses. Though you can't tell in the pictures, New Wayfarer is slightly smaller than the Old Wayfarer. When I tried on the Old Wayfarer, they were simply too big for my facial structure. They were overpowering.
Were they the 47 or 50mm ones?
New ones thanks to Nathan pointing out a difference as otherwise they pretty much look identical.
Unless you get a good deal on the old ones then buy those.
No idea. The model number is RB 2132. Black frame, prescription lens from Lens Crafters if any of that helps.
Those are your new Wayfarers?
Not my actual ones.
But yes, those are the frames.
I own these, love them.
I am fairly hipster though.
Personally, no. The reason is because contacts correct my vision far better than glasses can.
As others have said, it works well for some but not all. I love the Wayfarers...a classic style that is timeless. Some people look awesome in them. I wanted a pair so bad. I went to the store and tried them on, and I looked like the biggest idiot in the history of recoded time. So certain frames work better for certain faces and bodies.
Old Wayfarers kinda curve on the side:
While the New Wayfarers are straight.
