    So I picked up a couple new pairs of glasses today.
    A pair of zegna and a pair of polo RL.

    Couple different styles just for a different look.

    Then got me thinking that I haven't seen many/any thread on eyeglasses.

    Interested to see people's views on rules for glasses.
    Any guidelines on what to wear, how to wear it. What not to wear. What types of glasses for what types of occasions/styles etc ?????

    I've never really used any guidelines apart from what suits my face shape, (although the RL ones I bought today have a slightly blue frame which I liked as I wear a lot of blue in suits/shirts)

    Love to hear others thoughts on if there are "rules"!!!

    I've never thought about that. I have two pairs of eye glasses. When I bought them, I didn't think for a second about what I'd be wearing them with. I thought about what looks good on my face. They're an accessory. If you like them, wear them. As long as I can see and the glasses aren't too pronounced, I don't care. Then again, I can see pretty well without glasses, so I could always just take them off if I didn't like the look. Maybe someone who needs to wear them all of the time would have a different perspective.

    I wear eyeglasses like, every waking moment. I'm sure some other people MUST as well but the lack of info on how to choose stylish glasses is frustrating me right now. I mean, they go on your face ffs!
