I never really understood the need to create segments or hierarchies for office dress. I've worked in multiple industries and job functions in which my managers, coworkers and I blended a lot of the above segments. Things like casual Fridays, client meetings, pitches, vendor visits, etc. all throw off the consistency. Then when you factor in your position or certain company cultures, everything changes again. While I don't think one's dress directly affects their...
The lenses are pretty effective from what I've seen. Haven't worn these glasses extensively (tags are still on them), but they have worked well the couple of times I tried them on while driving. I just walked outside into the sun with them on and didn't notice any wonky transition between inside and outside. There's also minimal tint to your sight when wearing, as is usually the case with Persol lenses.The lenses themselves are more see-through than the normal green Persol...
I have a pair of Persol 649s (52mm) for sale. Brand new with tag and original case.

That looks pretty fantastic when worn unbuttoned. Not a fan of it buttoned (strikes me as a bit too "morning formal" silhouette), but luckily I almost never wear my jackets buttoned. Can't wait to see the fabrics and configurations for Fall, Greg.
We'll chalk it up to a social experiment.
Got engaged last night, so that's pretty cool.
Thanks, unbel. I was hoping that was it. The brown donegal is pretty intriguing as well. Intrigued to see what other combinations/fabrics are available.
