Thought of doing this for a while now. This important accessory (and necessity!) deserves its own discussion thread.

Here are mine. From left to right column:
Giorgio Armani, Tortoise Shell (Japan)
Emporio Armani, Black (Italy)
Eyephoric 2.5g, clear bridge and temples, custom-cut lens (Switzerland)
Lindberg 3000x, gunmetal titanium (Denmark)
Porsche Design 6001 reading glasses, gunmetal titanium (Japan)
Gotti Leon, dark brown/green acetate (Germany)
Lindberg Acetanium, dark Tortoise Shell with matt gold temples, transition lens (Denmark)

The G.A. is no longer used. But I like the frame very much and kept it through the years. The Porsche Design I acquired on design merits alone. The rest of the eyeglasses are under active service. I would wear the Eyephoric when I exercise; the Lindberg 3000x for work; the Gotti for reading, and the Lindberg Acetanium for general purposes. The round transition lens do render a certain nostalgic panache to this last pair in daylight, even though it has been called 'harry potter' before.

Post your pictures! Eyeglasses are exciting topics for discussion for those who like them and certainly for those who need them (like me!).

I've always loved the look of these glasses. As worn by Josh Hartnett and James Dean.
