I was wondering whether they still sell those thick plastic half-rim frames that grace so many chassidishe men and boys faces, or do they keep them in such pristine condition that they still have them. Or maybe they got them in the day where the concept of quality wasn’t dead, so they never broke and therefore never had to get new ones.
Well, I’m assuming someone is still selling them, cause the little folks have got them too, and that style was out before they were born (you think maybe they stock-hoard them like canned food in a sealed room?)
If you think about it, they were in style before the rest of us regular folks, when plastic frames were in, they had ‘em already, and then when we switched to half rims, they had that too, and then thick sides came in, those glasses have them too. Same thing with rectangular/squareish.
Real things of beauty; it incorporates every style so they never need to get new ones, but they’re still manage to be so ugly (they should have listened Coco Chanel who said something along the lines of never try to rock more than two trends in one outfit [and they’re doing 3 in one accessory]).
