Well, I guess my glasses would be considered "geek" glasses as well. I think many of them look good, but one has to be picky about the frames, because there are some that just flat-out don't fit people's faces. There are also some people who just don't have the personality to wear something that bold.

Hmm, I saved her avatar took the picture that had the glasses and morphed them together, put them on my webspace and put the picture up.

Credits: It was a picture that I modified.

Credits: I don't know where her avatar originally came from, I don't know who took the picutre

Credits: I don't know where the picture that I grabbed the glasses from originally came from, I don't know who took the picture.

I have a wee crush on an arty guy I met who wears proper vintage buddy holly tortoiseshell geek glasses. (with a fedora on top...) they are swell.

I highly recommend this trend, but some of these pictures...well...the glasses just don't look natural at all. geek glasses by their nature are a bit homely and odd, so it looks a bit weird if you try to glam them up. work the nerdness. :p

I think theses 'geek glasses' are really cute although obviously they would have to really suit the wearers face otherwise i think that they would just look ridiculous. I wearing glasses and have loads of pairs in different colours and frame shapes. Iv' just bought a gorgeous pair of D&G thick rimmed ones and they're my favourite accesory(sp?) at the moment. I think everybody should have at least one pair of glasses because it can just make a whole outfit. If i didn't need them i would still wear gl;asses cos i love them so much.

yes! i love them - together with suspenders and skinny pants. looking a bit dorky can look nice, though you shouldnt adjust your posture to go with it, walking with a crooked back from the imaginative heavy bookcarrier


though, might 'geeky glasses' be a slightly off term? i guess the cheapest glasses that will be fully covered by the insurance have the right to be called 'geeky glasses'. not Givenchy or Chanel :p

I am considering to get some geek glasses! They're so cool! I wear ordinary glasses now, and I've had those I'm wearing know in about 2-3 years, so I'm starting to get really tired of them. I think I'll try some geek glasses and see whether they look good on me or not. I hope so, they're übercool!

I am so sad..I didn't realise this was a full blown trend?
And I thought I was just being unique when I bought my big square black cazals.....I mean, I had seen the geeky glasses on the runway and was kind of bummed to know that a designer had started doing it , but didn't realise that people had been doing it on the street? I never see anyone in them??

Anyway, my big inspiration for the look is Mark Borchardt. I love his glasses, although they are a little bit different than the black geeky frame look, they are hot! he's hot!

Can anyone recommend a place to buy these glasses online?
One, where you can use paypal?

I'd like the pair, which James Dean has in this photo...
in silver/metal, clear or maybe red. I think the black frames can be too overpowering

So, the grass is always greener on the other side. People who need glasses (me) wear contacts, and people who don't, wear glasses
