    So which picture is uberdorkiest?

    I picked up my 2nd pair of glasses last night at Costco... now I wear contacts but as high index of a script as I have, and I read a LOT as part of my work - its easier to wear glasses during working hours than screw with readers and contacts... Anyway, which is Uberdorkier... #1 or #2?

    #1



    #2



    Me w/o the Specs...



    (I'm wearing my swim suit and those are NOT my bottoms).

    Take it from a straight man with freakish fashion sense, the round glasses are out. The rectangles (except for the silly grin) look much better on you.

    Do you use the thin lenses? I have a pretty thick prescription and there's a way to thin the lenses so you don't look like you have little beady eyes.

    Those ARE high-index. That's the strongest lens you can get in the US. I'm a -12.5 left, -13.0 right. The only way I could get thinner lens would be to buy my glasses overseas, but they're more prone to breakage.

    the round ones make you look like a pastor or father.
    the rectangles make you look like a programmer.
    Food for thought: if you aren't dead by 2050, you and your entire family will be within a few years from starvation. Now that is a cruel gift to leave for your offspring. ;)

    Please tell me you never wore that striped "garment" you are holding up. If you did, even the straight powers of UnsafeAlpine cannot save you. And go with the square ones . The round ones make you look like you have posters of Dieter from Sprockets hanging in your bedroom at your parents house.

    The swim bottoms are from The Blonde's bikini.

    #2 looks better, but only because #1 looks like you're about to kill me. #3 is hot though

    I say &%^$ what's 'in' or 'out'

    I like the round ones on you.....could just be the freaky grin with the rectangles tho. Actually those look like my last frame.

    I probably should've smiled in the round picture, thus making all three 'equal' in a sense.

    I'm glad I had contacts in for the 25 mile ride after work

    Get rid of the round ones in pic 1, and go with the rectangles in pic 2.

    As for the speedo-style bottoms, here in Europe they're par for the course for straight males (although personally I wear baggies ...)
