    .......
    i would tend to say "NO" on streets .......................... but why not for the night .... not a costume .... but sometimes in the nights you want to be a lil' different ....

    i'm not sure that japanese girl in before-last picture is wearing it for aesthetic ...... but more because she had a surgery of the eye or something like that ....

    omg that ed with Tyson and Linda .... hummmm

    I agree no on the streets!

    Im actually unsure of the eye patch being worn anywhere.
    Lets wait and see if it catches on ..

    Actually, eye patch fashion has become quite a popular trend in japan, I'm almost certain that it's for the purpose of style as can be seen in these pictures also:

    ^ Ugh, that's kind of stupid. :blink:

    Looks cool in editorial, very pirate like, but in real life no no. :doh:

    Very rakish.

    But I agree, doesn't look well beyond the ed.

    On the street it just reeks of trying to be edgy....though if Daphne Guinness started sporting some funky ones around, I might sing a different tune. It looks oddly natural on her.

    A guy in my class wears an eye patch... I never asked him why, but I always thought it was cool :)

    unless you've got an eyeproblem it's a no for me..
    agree with Kim about it looking cool in editorials though, and I did love the eye patch from Kill Bill

    I concur with the thought that it's ok for portraying a specific attitude or look in eds and on the runway. Sometimes. But I don't embrace it as street wear.

    I feel almost insulted with it as street wear but maybe I just have too much stick up my @$$.:p I just feel like it's a medical thing and I know it isn't meant to make light of people who need to wear eye patches for medical reasons, but I almost feel like it does. I feel like it's almost like using crutches or wearing an ankle brace for no reason. Or to stretch it further, like wearing a rosary if you aren't catholic, star of david or you aren't jewish, keffiyah if you don't support Palestine, etc. But maybe that's stretching it.:p

    Thank you for the lovely pics in the eds though!:flower:

    ^ I get what you're saying.

    Eye Patches are a no-go for me. I just don't understand the appeal of voluntarily compromising sight for the sake of style. It belittles people who use them for legitimate reasons.
