In honor of Frankie’s Top 3 Budget Frames for Fashion post here’s five top frames from our luxury brands for those of us looking to treat ourselves, just a little. Of course, when you’re strapped for cash and need to budget, then budget. But when you’ve got some extra dough coming in why buy wine when you can afford champagne?
Originally this was supposed to be compiled of three frames like Frankie’s post, but when there’s 1,409 luxury frames to chose from then naturally I sneaked in an extra two!!
It’s a well known fact some of the world’s coolest guys wear glasses: James Bond, Brad Pitt, Jay-Z, Martin Scorsese – we’re talking more of a Clark Kent kind of cool, rather than a zany Elton John look. With trends such as geeky-chic getting hotter and hotter there’s no reason not to set your sights high when choosing a new pair of designer glasses. Of course it doesn’t have to be designer but when you’ve got a choice between a Ferrari or a Peugeot, which one would you go for? So to save you some time here’s a pick of the best five.
We’ve been looking over our sales figures and have noticed an interesting trend over the course of the Winter, which actually hit a peak in February. Traditionally, Ray-Ban has always been our best selling designer brand, but over the Winter the gap between Ray-Ban in first place and our second place brand was beginning to close right up.
Towards the end of the month of February for first time ever, Ray-Ban was actually pushed down into second place as our best selling brand. But who could overpower the might of the best known eyewear brand in the industry?
On the 23rd November 2011 we carried out a Street Survey to find out if wearing glasses changes the way people see you. With photos of five different people (both with and without their glasses) we asked passers by to rate a selection of the images based on the following traits: -
Even we were amazed by the results.
100% of the models were considered by the public to be sexier, more employable, trustworthy AND intelligent when wearing their specs. But even more interestingly, our study found that it was men who benefited most from embracing their specs.
Women considered the male models on average 38% more attractive and 35% more intelligent when wearing glasses. One male model was perceived as a whopping 75% sexier when seen in specs. Men in general were considered to be 60% MORE SEXY by women. With figures like that it seems like a no-brainer - If you want to turn heads, you've got to make a 'spectacle' of yourself.
Take a look at our video from the day (above) and see what people really had to say about glasses wearers. Or bask in the glory of our study results from our Infographic below.
