fxh, stop showing your age. The problem with 'young fuckers' nowadays is not getting them to the optometrist for an eye test, it's working out whether those frames they wear are prescription or simply for the sake of appearance..

Are they literally just wearing the frames without any lenses, or do they have clear, non-prescription lenses fitted?

If it's the former, you should walk up to them and poke them in the eye through the empty frame!

I've encountered both varieties. The girl at my work wears frames with no lenses in them at all. She said she'll have some clear non-rx lenses fitted. Problem with this is that most people who do this get cheap reflective lenses and so you can still tell their glasses are fake (or that they were too cheapskate to pay for anti-reflective coating, lol). I see this one a lot, too.

Once in DJs, a sales assistant asked me where I bought my frames from and we got chatting and I asked, "So you're wearing contacts today?" and he said, "No.." and then I asked why he needed the glasses, and he said "I just want to wear glasses.."

I actually think it may be very common nowadays to just wear glasses for the sake of it. If only it were like that when I was at school, fucking Danny Hughes giving me shit for being "four eyes"..

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)


Details:
- Herringbone jacket - actually part of a suit - in a blue PoW check with a brick red overcheck. Interestingly, the jacket only has one button;
- Deer Style shirt in a sky blue, royal oxford cloth;
- Ascot knit tie in brick red;
- Vanda pocket square;
- RL Polo grey nailhead trousers; and
- Loake "Strand" Adelaide-throat balmorals in burgundy.

 

Such a great pocket square.

not that you're holding onto the past or anything...

blame the NBA - watch any of the post match interviews and the players will be wearing C+G, moscot, etc without lenses... it started as a joke and then more stars began taking it on.

Boss wore a khaki linen suit today with patch pockets. I think I have officially been out-styled in my workplace.

Blame the NBA for nothing. Horace Grant in his swimming goggle style wraparound glasses. Champion.

Tell me what that Danny Hughes is up to now, or get his linkedin or facebook info, and I'll get my "mates" to put the frighteners on him - while they are wearing glasses.

Give him nightmares for years whenever he sees someone with glasses.

I've had pretty bloody good success with payback and school bullies. Although to be truthful most of them are pretty washed up and pathetic whenever I've seen them in later years.

I've seen most of my school bullies since about 17 or so, and usually they've been lugging kids around the local shops...

Yeah- I think there was something in the basic concept of the safari suit for Australia.

My inclination is the relaxed cotton suit should be the go.

However right now me and Ms fxh are obsessed with the Geelong Cup fashions. Mostly the women.

Gives great hope for the Spring Season
