Top 5: Fashion Glasses

By shinychris on February 4th, 2010

Phrases like ‘geek chic’ shouldn’t be thrown around lightly, but when it comes to completely unnecessary accessories, you can call me a geek all you like. For other out and proud nerds, here are some of the most un-cool glasses around which, rather ironically, will make you a lot cooler than everyone else.

No-way-farers

There’s an urban myth that in London that you are never 8 feet away from a rat, it’s clearly bullshit but you try to get 8 feet away from a pair of Wayfarers this summer- you won’t. The number of companies ripping off the Ray Ban original is staggering with prices and quality ranging from £12 for a cheap pair from Topman up to £115 for a pair of Ray Ban’s from ASOS.

However if you’re like myself then you don’t want to wear this seasons equivalent of vermin but don’t want to spend £115 on some awesome but very breakable/losable/lendable sunny G’s. My suggested solution is these Cheap Monday Night Watch Wayfarers, cheap at 200 Krona (under £17) and looking more than your average Wayfarer with a squarer, more angled structure. These shades come in 3 colours: light turtle (pictured above), grey and black all available at Caliroots and though it is a bit of a snub having to pay the same again in P+P that you have for the glasses themselves (200 Krona) for £34 you have a pair of branded, wellmade Wayfarers that won’t make you cry if you drop ‘em under a bus.

Shorts! What the best dressed legs (aren’t) wearing

Saturday’s oh-so-welcome sunshine provided a first opportunity for 2009 shorts sightings with Hackney’s Broadway Market being an ideal setting. Amongst the tangled limbs of pram central, shorts were very much in evidence. On the lithe and louche, high jean cut-offs (a la Fantastic Man‘s guide to making your own) were a popular option. The plentisome SYD‘s (that’s sexy young dads if you’re not sure) meanwhile were a tad more modest with the long and narrow shorts style being popular – often teamed with plaid, deck shoes and a serious beard.

An emerging shorts trend however is old-school khaki shorts – rugby shorts length – that add a certain David Attenborough touch to your summer kit. Look out for vintage Ralph Lauren for a quality look – best avoided if your lallies are more Charles Hawtrey than Lawrence Dallaglio though.

What’s Hot: Ray Ban Wayfarers

By Isabelle on March 29th, 2007

Summers-a-coming so I’m going to be picking out key pieces for this season for you. Some may be slightly OTT but there’s nothing scary about Ray Ban Wayfarers. Anything that’s worn by Roy Orbison must be brilliant, apparently the legendary songwriter while on tour with the Beatles forgot his thick prescription specs and so put the prescription Wayfarers at the last minute where they remained for the rest of his career. Wayfarers are the trendiest sunnies around at the moment, and  will add a bit of retro chic to any simple summer outfit.
