Some folks can definitely pull it off without looking like errant scenesters. I'm just not one of them.

I have a pair of model 312 from Anglo-American Optical and i couldn't be happier with them. Great quality and very reasonably priced. The dark tortoise colour is very subtle, appearing almost black when worn.

Some suggestions:

1. Go to the absolute best eye glass place/optician in your area and try a bunch on. The best places (at least for glasses) usually have the best help and they'll be quite good in finding things that look good on you as opposed to looking good in pictures. Skin tone, eye color and face shape are huge influences.

2. Consider buying more than one pair. I use one pair for work and another pair for weekends/play to better match your dress and needs at different times. My weekend pair has the clear to sunglass technology (which works quite well now)

3. Given the bang for the buck with glasses, I wouldn't skimp and depending on what you're considering you may want to punt on the Taiwan thing. Some frames really should only be handled by the dealer because putting the lenses in may be tricky and there can have quirks in fitting adjustment. (This was at least my experience with IC Berlin)

4. If you're interested in the black frame stuff, take a look at Bevel. They at least used to make some really nice ones IMO.

I wear chunky frames. They are black so they don't stand out quite as much. The're Gucci frames; quality is okay but not great.

Not great pictures but they are all I have.

I don't think I really like too much like a scenester or anything. I've only ever had compliments on the glasses.

How do you guys think they look?

Thank you, thank you, thank you! Even if you don't want to support the corporate monsters that are Luxotica and Safilo, simply go to a McOptician* and see what shapes and colors look right on you. Plus, how you wear them on your face affects optics such as seg height placement. I tried to tell people this in the last eyewear thread and some guy insulted me...

*I do not work for a McOptician.

As another chunky Prada frames wearer, I think the two best ways to seperate yourself from emo or hipster stereotyping is to not have a stupid haircut and to shave regularly.

Everything goes together fine.

I used to hate hate hate picking out glasses (I've worn them since I was 9, I'm 34 now), that is until I found a great eye place and someone there to work with. Someone good can assess your face shape and grab a few pairs and have the right frame for you. My wife and I both trust her with everything and every time I go to get glasses (every 3-4 years) she nails it within 10 mins of either of us being there. My point being I wouldn't leave someone just picking a pair up for you to that chance. It will be much better to spend the $$$ in the long run and try a local place that sells a good range of glasses. Over the past few years I've been wearing either Oliver Peoples or LA Eyeworks. Both have been dark squareish frames, but I don't think I look art damaged, emo or any other stereotypical label that could go along with that...... Below is what I currently wear. I could never buy frames without them getting on my face first.
