The pair in question is this



The frame itself is pretty classic, not huge.

I don't get these sort of questions, surely you know your professional environment better than anyone on here?

Sure, and I believe they are. However, I've also worn black suits and brogue shoes to work in the past thinking it is appropriate. I hope its not too much to ask for a second opinion

I simply can't imagine how they would be inappropriate. I've known people who have worked in the stodgiest NYC law firms and gotten away with far more. On the wild & crazy meter, this doesn't even register.

FWIW: I think they look great.

Sorry if my response came across as aggressive, nothing wrong with asking. I just don't think anyone is as qualified to answer the question for your professional setting as you are. Wearing a black suit, or brogue shoes is probably acceptable in most professional environments, even if you were given shit for it here - although I don't see why people would have a go at you for wearing brogues. If you want a second opinion on the glasses - You could probably get away with them in most offices, although I think plenty of people on here will say you shouldn't. They seem a little awkward to me, somewhere between half framed glasses and fully framed ones. They don't look bad though.
