I've got no problem spending 5x the amount of my jeans on glasses (I wear a pair of NS everyday) but I gotta feel good in them. I did try and sweet talk them into stocking salt eyeglasses (they carry salt sunglasses) but they said they simply couldn't because they sell oliver.
If I was to buy one online it would be a toss up between these Mostcots and salts, My favorite is the grey yale. What I did find out today though is that I don't have a long face so deep glasses are too big on me and I look better in rectangular frames. Anyone know how eye brows factor into choosing your frames? I have very thick and jet black eye brows despite my hair being a light color.

Sure, you don't have to spend $500 bucks for a good pair of glasses but the same can be said for $200 shirts and $300 jeans. And in the grand scheme of things which part of your body do people see most your head or your ass?
Spend the money on your eyes. You'll never outgrow them. The same cannot be said for your clothing. Besides, there's no easier way to fuck up your style than with shitty glasses.
