Just found out I need glasses. What are some of your favorite brands? It never crossed my mind that I would need glasses so I'm kind of lost now. Prada seems to have nice ones, but not sure if I want a brand name on the outer side of the frame. What else is nice? Oliver Peoples? Moscot? Any ideas?

I don't normally care about fashion but I have developed an interest in glasses lately. For most of my life I have worn the basic full-rim metal wire style. In recent years it has become unfashionable. I bought a plastic pair around a year ago but didn't like it and never wore it again.

Late this June, I got in a rather nasty bicycle accident and obliterated my glasses (the frames and right lens were totally destroyed) in addition to breaking a few bones. Since my eye insurance only covers 1 frame a year, I tried Zenni Optical because of the extremely low prices. The first frame was the previous style, of decent quality. I considered the plastic frames again and ended up buying pic related. The frames were very tight at first while simultaneously falling off my face, but I eventually used a hair dryer to get a decent fit.

So do you guys prefer metal or plastic frames? After all this time I actually will never go back to metal.

This seems to be the fashionable type of frame now. What's the appeal? It combines the worst features of both metal and plastic glasses (weight, thickness, nose pads). My face seems to corrode the nose pads rather quickly. They fill up with dirt and filth and are more difficult to clean.

2017 is the year of hybrid and metal frames, Clubmaster is the grandfather of former.

If I had to get a hybrid frame it would be plastic front and plastic nose pieces, but metal arms. That makes for a practical and stylish frame. I have seen metal aviators with the plastic pads grafted on but those are mostly worn by old people.
