guys & wayfarer, why not??
they look cool w/ wayfarer….esp. the black one…
My bf bought last summer a wayfarer in Italy, because my Aviator Ray-ban is stolen in Marrakech :(. I still rock my Glossy Dior, but the wayfarer is soo classic. i wear it but it look better on bf. Next summer i’ll wearing a beautiful Tom Ford !posted over 7 years ago

it depends, sometimes they can look way too hipster-y…. it depends on the outfit.posted over 7 years ago
“Hipster-y”…what is this assembled adjective actually supposed to infer? I fail to understand what is the actual criticism that is (now) just mounting against a silhouette that has been in near continuous production for over half a century. Granted, it had a slump through the late 90s, but it’s pretty much agreed upon that it’s a neutral and almost universally-flattering shape.
Now, if there are non-aesthetic reasons why you dislike it (association with a particular person, et cetera), then that is understandable. But that’s not an actual reason to say they don’t look good.posted over 7 years ago
it’s not the wayfarers I have a problem with, it’s the obnoxious outfits people tend to wear them with nowadays… this is my opinionposted over 7 years ago
You seem to be confusing the sunglasses with the overall outfit. I do believe the thread was about the Wayfarer as an object unto itself.posted over 7 years ago
I think Wayfarers are cool, they’re retro and very hot together with an Rockabilly outfit on men. I see guys dressed like that with wayfarers all the time in the summer, on all the american carmeetings and shows I go to.posted over 7 years ago
yeah i dont like em on guys. i like them on girls these days cuz it totally plays into the androgyny, patti smith look thats super hot on girls.
on guys it seems too much like an exact revival of the eighties or something. at least on ladies it new and fresh still haha
ive had my pair of tortoise shells ones and they are die hard hardies! they are indestructible. i wont get anything else now.
