Lets Talk About People That Wear Glasses Frames

is there a reason why people wear glasses from?

i try it out 6 months ago & realize i look pretty good in them, i dont need to wear glasses at all but i find that i look less young with them on

u could say this is kind of my reason for it, but im just asking is this just an asian hipster trend or something like that (seriously i sometimes think i get sucked in too trends like this for no reason)

Well as an independent film producer, I find the black lines provided by my thick-framed tom ford glasses give me a view almost identical to that of my 16 by 9 professional recording camera. I leave the glass out to circumvent the potential reflection/glare issues, and so women can see my beautiful hazel eyes unadulterated, in all their natural beauty.

Also, they black frames go well with my black moustache.

I like the extra bit of douchebaggery it adds to ones dry, soulless personality. It's a nice touch.

I have black-rimmed glasses which are about 33% hipster but also have a slight prescription, under 100 for each eye. I wear them once in a while, but I feel like it makes my eyesight worse, but not while i'm wearing them, but afterwards. Like my 19/20 vision is suddenly not good enough, 1080P only bitch, 720P is for suckas!

But other than that I have seen every car on display in DTP just by cruising about in Richmond, thank you very much for collecting them together and get someone to sing a cover for "fuck you".

OH FUCK YOU OH OH OOOOH~

Good for you (seriously).

To test: if you have the bravado: ask random female strangers if you look better with glasses or without.

Go from there.

FS: Black framed glasses (worn by me) made by Oliver Peoples

I will punch out the prescriptions lens for free.

Asking price: $500 and it will guarantee you good looks and charisma. For an extra $20, I will stand there and tell you how amazing you look and Instagram it on my Twitter account so you will for sure, be the talk of the town. #glasses

(Disclaimer: Results my vary.)

P.S. - I wore these before they were cool.

We should rename this thread "People I want to punch in the face and break their glassless frames each and every time I see them"

Need to wear glasses. Without them I am pretty much blind lol. Try contacts before and I just don't like the feeling of having nothing in front of my eyes (like protection I guess), also my eyes get really dry and unconfortable when using contacts.
The good thing about glasses is that I can wear them all day (contacts usually you can wear up to 18hours before you have to take them off) and is easy to put on.

This isnt about people that need and wear glasses. This is about retards that wear empty frames like hipster phaggots.

I'm legitimately curious; what's so bothersome about it?

I choose other accessories, clothes, and a hair cut to achieve to a certain look and not strictly for function; I don't see glasses any differently.

I consider it a disability because it took away my ability to go into a career I have always wanted to be in. Why would you be mocking someone's disability. I know a lot of people wear glasses nowadays for legitimate reasons however making glasses a fashion trend is like people limping around in crutches because it looks cool. That is how I see it.

It angers me when I see it because, those people don't know how its like to have to NEED to wear them all the time. They are very generally expensive and a lot of people that NEED them cannot afford them (thank jeebus for clearly contacts). I think its a stupid trend that needs to stop.

Question:

I have reading glasses. Some times I NEED them, other times I don't.

How does this make you feel?

Hipsters didn't turn glasses into a fashion trend. The wearers of prescription glasses turned them into a fashion trend. The abundance of designer frames is evidence. Glasses are thus not strictly medical devices, like crutches or a prosthetic. In following, wearing glasses is not mocking a disability like faking a limp. It's not a unique trend. In the past canes were made fashionable and not strictly medical. I necessarily use a cane some days and am not offended by this trend. It's unfortunate your disability's altered your career path; my disability altered my career path. It sucks, I know.

It's outright silly to say, "they are very generally expensive and a lot of people that NEED them cannot afford them." A starving person in Africa needs food, but you still buy concert tickets, instead of sending every spare dollar to aid relief.
