I want glasses I've never seen before.
I want new glasses. The kind of glasses I want are "hey nice glasses
" and not "oh, I didn't even notice you wear glasses." Considering these will be on my face during all waking hours, I do not mind spending money, so I don't necessarily need them to be inexpensive. That being said, $200 is my uppermost limit unless it is something really awesome.
I have astigmatism in one eye and one of my ears is a good a half-inch higher than the other, which means I will need to get them necessarily adjusted. So, they need to be the kind of glasses that can be adjusted in such a manner.
Now, as per usual, I know exactly what I don't
Standard thick-rimmed glasses. I wear those now
Teashades/John Lennon glasses
BCG/Morrissey/American Apparel glasses.
50s-style Michael-Douglas-in-Falling-Down glasses
Anything old-timey, especially these
Anything in a non-neutral color. I don't want to consider my glasses when matching clothes.
I've been interested in cut-metal frames. I can't find a picture of but they're exactly what they sound like; just three thin pieces of metal and two hinges. Sort of like the ones I have now just much thinner and made of metal.
The other kind I've been looking at are clear plastic frames
. Unfortunately, I have rather heavy eyebrows and almost always have a beard, so they may look too incongruent.
Anyway, let me see what you got, y'all!
