What looked great on SmQ now is worn in a very different context. I normally see Persols on overweight white dudes who think they're top shit because they're wearing McQueen's glasses. Many consider it naff to wear a big brand across my shirt, or to wear a big sparkly gold branded watch, or to wear shoes with big branded buckles on them, or to own luxury-eurotrash-patterned leather goods or a big Hermes H belt. Why is this different with glasses?
Besides, would SmQ have approved of paying $400 for designer sunnies?
I hear what what your saying DR, l've had my Persol spec's for years though, l just like em man!
BTW Whats wrong with a big Hermes belt? it complements my RL Polo with oversized horse, Ed Hardy sunnies, snake skin boots from Zu all put together with a splash or ten of Joop, let me run my fingers through my heavily gelled hair.
