Okay, not just men, but I’ll just keep it manly for these festivities… Because Men of Style was suggested by our Birthday Girl (wink). We have eyeglasses wearers here in the Stylefrizz household! Two of the wee ones wear eyeglasses! Naturally, ever since we have the kids wearing specs, we were also exposed to the trends in the field. Year after year we see pretty much the same spectacle in the specialty stores: thin metal frames for prescription glasses.
We’re pretty much counter culture so we wanted something else for the kids – something less thin and less metallic. We wanted plastic frames! And we could barely find any! Because you see, my daaaahlings, plastic frames are nerdy. Geeky. Un-fashionable! I say stop that! Le Geek C’est Chic and you know it! Bring back thick black nerdy glasses!
And hereby some of the world’s most famous men (by entertaining standards, biensur) who have chosen the Geek Chic look! Horn rimmed glasses, black rimmed glasses, plastic frames, baby! That’s the new eyeglasses must!
So who have we here? Simon Baker, Paul Bettany, Zachary Quinto, Johnny Depp, Kevin Spacey, Stanley Tucci, Daniel Craig, Justin Timberlake, Jay Z, without forgetting the classic nerdy glassed Woody Allen! You may think different, so I really want to hear your side of the story: do you think thick black (dark or horn) rimmed eyeglasses are the new eyewear must or just a counter culture manifestation picked up by the famous masses?
