What sunglasses are you wearing? - Page 3

post #31 of 81
That's good info LabelKing. I had no idea. I did a search for those Cutler & Gross buffalo horn frames and found these. Wow, they run around $900 (495 pounds).

The model name is Drifter.

J, those rock. Where did you get them?

At a garage sale right by my house. The lady insisted on $5 including the original case, but since they are polarized and in almost perfect shape, I went for it.

As promised, here are my Zeiss:
Don't care for those at all and are way too big for your face IMO.
I am inclined to agree. The lower part of the lenses sit too far down from your cheekbone area. They are making your midface area look flat.

Wow, I've never had anyone tell me that and I actually am inclined to agree with you. I really like aviator-style shades though and I look like a dork in pretty much everything else. But I'll keep that in mind next time I go shopping for eyewear. Ha, I knew this digicam was good for something other than taking my vanity to a new level.

I currently have three sets of Silhouette's, they are comfortable, minimalist - easy to wear. http://www.silhouette.com

This is the pair of Oakleys I own: Hardly the jack-ass plastic things that seem to engender so much hatred around here.

I think people see some of their sunglasses and make a generaliztion about all of their products. I agree that some of there stuff is garbage but these are a perfect example of what else Oakley makes. Its not all cheap plastic frames.

Certainly much better than the ones I had in mind but the bridge is still plastic (or plastic-looking). And ditto what retronotmetro had to say about the O logo. They're more acceptable, but still not all the way there.

the bridge is the same metal as the rest of the frames, and the O thing - well I don't find it all that noticable, but certainly not tasteless to the extent you can see it. Clearly, Oakleys are not for you. But to suggest that wearing those sunglasses with a suit would somehow be tasteless or break some "rule" is just silly.

my dailys are a pair of black Prada plastic frame, look similar to classic Persols. these have the best fit of any plastic frame i have ever tried. in general, plastic frames dont work well for the yellowman since we dont have that nose bridge the frames need to sit on (damn our flat faces.) in retirement are a pair of black Paul Smith plastic frames from 7 years ago which used to be the best fitting pair before i found the Prada ones. as a backup in case i sit on the Pradas is the classic Rayban Wayfarer.

Well, it's a personal rule. It's disappointing that it's not universally shared. I can only dream...

What rule are you breaking when you wear sunglasses way too big for your face?

Are you saying that your specs are more acceptable than the oakleys pictured? You should go to your local sunglass hut or O store and just try a pair on. Have an open mind, I have a feeling that you may like them. They will be much lighter on you face and may fit better than your zeiss specs. Have an open mind and just try them. There is nothing that is plastic on these frames.
