First pair, circa fifth grade. Here with Todd Beecher. Kinda ugly and generic frames, but you know. It was the 80s.
Oh dear. Oh dear, oh dear. My middle school serial-killer-glasses half-tints.
I'm not sure if I skipped a pair, but these red wire frames weren't terrible. I feel like they were always askew though.
My college pair, shown here NYE's at Time Square, 1995 becoming 1996, with Veronika
1996, around college graduation... These were some of my favorites... hard to make out the green wire, but the cool thing was they came with spring-y clip-on sunglasses. Loved 'em.
Blue frames similar to the green ones, with magnets for the clip-ons, in 2001. (wearing those roll-lens shades they give you when they dilate your eyes, which I thought were super cool.)
Copper colored half-frames. 2004ish.
Very similar frames and a weirdly similar pose in 2007.
BONUS! We will never see novelty glasses as good as what we had this New Year's Eve.
2013 - modern geek regulation standard
Been sporting these since 2015! I think oversized glasses are a bit safer. But they're really bad for eating pickles, as you can see.
