+1 I think the glasses look good and also provide a lot of character. What's wrong with looking nerdish anyway? There's a woman I see in town every now and then at gallery openings, trendy music shows, art fairs, etc. I only notice her because she wears the absolute worst glasses she can find. Huge grey Gene Shalit aviators, round coke-bottle black frames that look like Groucho Marx's glasses, etc. She's very pretty and wears ugly-ass frames. I was undecided on how I felt about it for so long but I think I came to the conclusion that it's try-hard. She actively wants people to pay attention to her glasses and see that she's being clever and ironic. To that end, I think when dressing cleverly, the goal is to leave reasonable doubt about whether you're trying to be clever or not. Perhaps your glasses are thick and nerdy because you are actually nerdy. With something as overt as giant glasses like that, the girl leaves no doubt; she says "look at me, look at how clever I am, how willing I am to buck trends!" but most of all, it just says "look at me". So in a roundabout way, this sort of applies to FTB. I think his glasses are borderline "look at me" and to some people, they notice that. I know I did when I first saw his pictures. That said, they're a bit more conservative than I had originally thought and they do straddle that line of clever/unaware that I talked about earlier. I'd like to see other options in frames as well. FTB, have you considered getting other pairs of glasses as well, or perhaps contacts? I pair up my eyewear with what I am wearing that day. Something like a brushed steel or platinum frame would look sharp with your mostly-black outfits.
