    Would it help if I told you I was a mid-30s prof? [​IMG] Maybe I should try them with an oxford and sweater...

    I think they look phenomenal and fit the aesthetic you're going for very well. What are the shoes btw?

    I dig the frames, Z. Then again, I wear some very similar clear plastic frames from Anglo American.

    My understanding is that clear frames came into being in the 30s due to the cheaper cost of not coloring the plastic. A lot of people down through the years have gone with them. LBJ. Wes Anderson. They're a good look on you, fit your face and aesthetic very well, I think.

    Cheers, guys. Pushkin- shoes are Timberland Boot Co. The distressing was a little comical at first, but the natural leather is darkening and the contrast is getting less obvious. Robert- these are a very light, milky tan, which I think goes pretty well with my complexion. I really need something other than the typical wire rims. I did, jet. They're pretty crazy. Fit pics sometime this week. Thanks, Moo

    Last time I saw someone wearing red socks a colleague commented that wearing red socks means you got lucky the night before, haven't heard it elsewhere though.

    Terrific - I'm 24 hours off trend

    They didn't have plastic frames during the gold rush.
    Classic!

    zissou I don't think you should be wearing glasses. late 1800s merchant marines either had good eyesite or drowned.

    I think the glasses don't look bad, they're just not the right color, they're too close to your complexion. A bigger classic style would probably suit you better though.

    zissou i think the frames really suit you- in fact the whole outfit is great.
    i like the watch, is it an omega? i think its just the way you're standing but it kind of looks like you're wearing it over your shirt cuff, agnelli-style

    Normally I don't like black with orange, but this is okay. Color and fit prevents you from going too far into prep territory. Judging by the doorframe, you're seven feet tall, so I don't know if I'd wear jeans that emphasize your hight/skinniness like that.

    I think the glasses don't look bad, they're just not the right color, they're too close to your complexion. A bigger classic style would probably suit you better though.

    As a bald white guy, I'd say he has to get glasses that are transparent close to the color of his complexion. It always looks awkward when the frames of glasses are by far the darkest thing on a person's head.

    ^Indeed, tagutcow. Thanks, robinson. The watch is actually a POS Fossil, although once I sell my house next year, my first purchase will be a vintage Omega Seamaster 'Jedi' [​IMG] I am wearing it over a cuff (tattoo). impolyt- believe me, I've tried other colors and they all stand out like a sore thumb. Maybe if I had hair it would be easier [​IMG] Teger- ha ha. I wouldn't mind wearing contacts, but the air is much too dry here. Thanks, ataru

    Moby, Michael Stipe during the mid 90's, and that one asshole from Live made the bald white guy with dark framed glasses thing work ok.

    zissou, those frames look fantastic on you. you could also try some vintage tart's but they're getting quite expensive (similar aesthetics as your op emerson). and your fit was excellent btw.
