after seeing tom hanks rocking a pair of clear frames at the emmys, i decided it was time to get really serious about finding some specs of my own.
thankfully, cat tipped me off to a mighty good resource: zenni optical.
skeptical about any pair of glasses (prescription, no less) that doesn’t set me back at least a few hundred dollars, i did some research.
i came across this article in slate, which pretty much sealed the deal for me. (i mean, if slate says it’s legit, it must be legit, right?)
among other online specs shops are 39dollarglasses.com and eyebuydirect.com (the least janky of the sites).
my favorites (the top right and bottom left) are $19 and $39, respectively. yeah. amazing.
i’ll let you know how this turns out.
