Glasses as accessory ok? - Page 2

post #16 of 27
AC, I think Tara Reid needs to pull a Ryan Phillippe and act in a movie as a computer programming expert, once she busts out her own version of "Antitrust" then she will be set.

I both need glasses and use them as a accessory. Sometimes, when I'm wearing contacts for convenience, I'll put clear lenses in (only about $30-40) my frames. I've worn glasses since I was seven - they are my look, and I just don't feel right without them

As a glasses wearer, I feel you are plain wrong, might I even say stupid, to wear glasses when you need them not. And yes, you will look affected in the presence of non-glasses wearers and probably piss off glasses wearers. If you want glasses, I suggest sunglasses; no one will question you then. Jon. Edit: I must disagree with AC, I think only Clark Kent can pull off the fake glasses look.

Or get lenses with a slight tint. That would take them away from the 'costume' look.

Elton John didn't need to wear glasses either, but he wanted to emulate the musician, Buddy Holly. Pretty soon, after wearing the glasses, he couldn't see well without wearing glasses and he's been wearing them since.

I came here and joined the forum and am accepting of both the "for" and "against" comments, however I did not come here to be insulted ("...you are plain wrong, might I even say stupid..."). You, sir, are an ignorant fool if you are unable to offer your thoughts without resorting to calling me "stupid". The only glasses wearer who will be pissed off are the ones who have some resentment or ill-will against those who don't need glasses and I could care less if I (by doing nothing) happen to piss those particular people off (they/you should look within themselves if something like that pisses them off). Good day to you.

I wear glasses/contacts and could not care less if you want to wear glasses as an accessory. We all wear stuff that we don't require just to look good. I wear a watch even though I have a cell that tells me the time, as does my laptop or clocks in all of my classes, etc.. I know it is not the same thing but it's not like the guy is making fun of people for wearing glasses. Glasses are a great way to accessorize, which is probably why all the the guys here that wear glasses on a regular basis spend so much time picking out their glasses. Which reminds me, I need to find another pair of frames. Oh the joy

I am fairly sure I remember Sylvester Stalone wearing such glasses when his eyesight was fine, for style.  Probably dates back to the nineties. When I was a kid, I wanted braces for my teeth.  I thought (go figure) it looked cool (I didn't need braces, as my teeth were straight).  I remember building something out of wire found in my dad's toolbox and pretending.

Thanks Ranjeev, Fabienne, and all the other posters (except that clown imageWIS/Jon) for your input. Later.

There may be other things more or less stupid -- but I think this one is stupid too.

ZenStyle, to be fair to Jon, he is a valued member of the Forum and from his previous postings, a good guy. I disagree with him on this issue and maybe he could have been nicer about the way stated his opinion but don't call the guy a clown. This Forum is successful because it is not only informative, but because people are generally nice to each other as well. Unless they are talking about black suits and kissing buttons

I hear you Ranjeev. I lurked for a week or so before I registered and saw that seemed to be a friendly and informative forum. There seemed to be a wide variety of levels of knowledge without too much of a snobby attitude towards newbie questions, etc. Those are the reasons I thought I would register and ask my question. I've been a member of a variety of forums, and they all have their valued members and they become that for a reason. When I saw his post I noticed his post count over 1500 but longtime poster or not he was not nice or friendly while insulting me in his post so I called him on it. If he calls me stupid, with no provocation, then he's a big enough boy to handle me calling him a clown. I was impressed with all the friendly replies, both negative and positive, not to mention sometime humorous, so I agree with you that this is a generally friendly place. Perhaps "Jon" had an off day. He hasn't returned to this thread which is fine as I consider the matter closed. Anyways, it seems the consensus is about 50/50 on the eyeglasses thing. I'm leaning towards seeing if I can find some very lightly tinted sunglasses which have a similar look. If anyone has any links/ideas that would be great. Thanks.
