    Disclaimer: I don't know shit about shit, hence the following question:

    What's the difference between aviators and Carreras? I realize that aviators are a style, whereas Carrera is a brand. A quick Google search yields the following:

    I see some differences, but...they kinda look like aviators (like the ones Ray-Ban makes) that've been tweaked to have a slightly rounder lens, as opposed to the teardrop shape on Ray-Bans:

    Or take these cheap-o POS's from UO (further disclaimer: I wear the tortoiseshell version of these):

    Nah, I've always disliked aviators, I just don't find the shape combined with the thin frame is very flattering to the face.

    Also I love when people associate me with jet even though I've probably argued more with him than anyone else on here.

    (I like him now though)

    Technically those are all aviators, traditional ones are metal framed teardrop shaped with two bridges connecting the lenses pilots wear. I should start a fly ass sunglasses thread since we have that shitty one right now. Swagless fools need not apply, there will be lots of sleazy frames with gold and intricate detailing involved. If you're wearing shades just to keep the sun out of your eyes or want to look like everyone else then you will probably want to post in the other thread.


    No, aviators have always been ugly and unflattering on most faces (except tom cruise and johnny knoxville (sup that1guy)) it's just that no one has realized this until now.

    I don't think your hair does much for your facial structure (no hate)

    Fair enough. So given that this is my body type, what sort of features should I be looking for in a shirt to help accentuate the positive and de-emphasize the negatives?


    Yes, they are NS. I waited about 6 mos before the first washing.


    They are APC NS, so they're not really tapered much to begin with. I've not heard the rule of tall dudes not wearing tapered pants before. Would other folks agree?

    Also, I'm always looking for ways to improve my photos. Besides the blurring of the face can others offer suggestions that might help myself and others? I've already employed the tactics of moving outside, cropping the photo, waking towards the camera, and shooting from waist height.
