      I think they're ok but not great. I agree with the too round sentiment. To me they look like a slimmed down version of Robin's mask.

      They look good, although I'm surprised you didn't go with the no-frame look that seems popular now... or was that 5 min. ago?
      I thought I was the only person left in the world who still wore hard contact lenses.

      I think they are a little too round, but what would I know I don't wear glasses.

      There is something faintly Gatsby-esque about them, which I really like. I just wish the bridge was a wee bit wider, and the actual frame a wee bit narrower.

      Just saying.

      You and your glasses are just adorable.

      Is it me, or are they ever so slightly cat-eyed? Otherwise okay, although you need to throw on a black t-shirt to complete the designer hairdo/glasses/shirt trifecta.

      How about glasses like Ben Folds wears in this video you earlier linked to of his cover of "Such Great Heights"?

      They fit your face well. Keep them.

      Hello Jason!
      How do they feel? That's gotta be #1, at least on my list.
      Aesthetically, rectangular frames would look more 'hip', but if eyeryone's got rectangles in your vicinity, this makes you stand out!
      If you plan on running for Governor, I would say definitely stay with the round/oval frames. It would be good to have a Kottke or two in office!

      It's not the shape that's wrong. What really doesn't work here is the t-shirt. These glasses only look good with something collared, ideally with a jacket (tweed's your best bet).

      So unless you want to eschew tees and dress like an Oxford don all the time, pick some other frames.

      Two weeks are up, what's the verdict?

      I think the glasses actually really work... now that you've got that kickin' beard.

      I say go with the monocle. Who needs depth perception when you can look like this:


      That should solve your cokebottle problem and add 10 pts of panache.

      Good on ya.

      Hey.. What ever happened to your glasses? Did you keep them? I think you looked very nice.

      I like you. You look good!

      Looking good! I've actually been looking for a new pair of glasses in Ottawa. I think I'll try to find a pair similar to these, if I can.
