Do you rock a full on beard and skinny jeans with those too?

One thing about New York is that everyone, regardless of race, creed, college choice, employment status, income, fashion sense, or musical taste, is free to be a TREMENDOUS douche.

I've found that about 20% of people in NY are really truly douchey jackasses (bankers have their share but Euro trash, Brooklyn hipsters and wanna-be Mad Men marketeers can be just as bad), 10% are legitimately really cool and able to mix with anyone, and the rest are just normal people who look like douches to the guy at the bar wearing a different pair of glasses. If you like the glasses and think they look good on you, just do what you want and embrace the fact that you probably aren't going to please everybody.

There have been many great comebacks throughout history. Jesus was dead but then came back as an all-powerful God-Zombie.

Haha reminds me of the scandinavian guys out here that usually rock different kind of extravagant glasses.

Americans seem a bit more harsh about fashion so I guess its gonna turn some heads over there

Yes you would absolutely look like a douche and...

if you came into interview with me, I would immediately have a bad impression of you.

If, on the other hand, you already have the job and show up to work like that, we would immediately have a bad impression of you and talk ill (and hilarious) behind your back when you are gone.

I personally wouldn't go with those glasses for work. Why risk overcoming negative impressions if it can be avoided? Some people have weekend glasses that are different than work glasses, so you can consider this. The way I see it, there are tons of things that might look good on you, but you still shouldn't wear it at work. Plus, even if 90% of the time it's okay in your work situation, I have a feeling that there'll be meetings/events that you go to where you wish you had a pair of normal specs. Just my two cents.

factualbill:

Short answer, yes.

Long answer, your attire should never distract people from your personality or your work. If they notice and focus on a pair of ostentatious frames (like those), the attention is no longer truly on you, it's on your weezer specs. Capiche?

I'm guessing he's probably figured things out over the last 3 years..

This is an old post but I say no...they're not ostentatious

edit: actually i misjudged how THICK they were, thought they were just a standard pair of ray ban wayfarers, so it could leave a bad first impression
