Old School.


I just got some new old-school Ray-Ban Wayfarers and I had my prescription done in glass because the refraction is awesome and you can get the green R-B tint.

Ugh.

It's like having a 5-lb. weight on your face. I forgot how heavy glass lenses are. They give me a headache after 5 minutes.

Unfortunately, I have a second pair on the way...

Oh how we suffer for style.

I never had a pair but boy of boy are they classically cool.

The good old days that never were. I had a pair in college and now that I think about it, they were the last glass lenses I ever owned. 2009 has a lot going for it!

Who cares about weight when you will look dead cool...Remember Tom Cruise in Risky Business?....xv

Those are awesome. I would love a pair if my head wasn't so small.

I got a pair - not wayfarers, but similar style. They're trifocals, polarized lenses, anti-glare, and featherweight! @ Costco!

I've got two pair - both with plastic lenses. Love them because of the coverage. For a motorcycle they are the best (no helmet law in Colorado).

The worst boss I ever had hated my Ray Bans...so I was forced to wear them all the time. I wore them to meetings with her bitchiness. Fun times.

I bet you look like a badass in those, especially with the headache grimace.

There's a zeit geist surrounding Wayfarers now. I feel the pull, too. I have been thinking of splurging on them. I usually only buy cheapies and lose them in two weeks, so there's the rub.

I don't wear 'scripts, so plastic lenses would work for me, but I haven't tried a pair since 1985.

I love your pick! The tortoise is the best.

Love the ray bans! I've got my own incognito pair...

Dude, you would be such a cool hipster in those!

Seriously -- love them.
