    I'm so glad the adolescents of today have you as a role model. It'll make it easier to staff my factory with cheap labor in ten years.

    you forgot funky 75 cent thrift store glasses.

    those are the clear winner.

    also you forgot ray bans, which if your interested in spending money on something you will inevitably lose or break, are the way to go.

    My sunglasses are prescription. I don't have much choice if I want to see clearly.

    Ray Bans for the win. They are actually pretty well made, if you don't lose them or whatever they'll last a long time.

    Yes. I literally got my 2007 sunglasses at some crummy convenience store in Indio and one of the arms fell off Sunday morning.

    Fuck oversized glasses. They are terrorism.

    Cool Re: What Sunglasses are Acceptable???

    coachella is supermarket sweep for style-watching types. the festival's proximity to los angeles and hollywood means a generally fashion-savvy crowd. a few hours of people watching will give you a pretty good general feel for the state of young, hipster style today. in the last year or so, ray ban wayfarers and their neon knockoffs have been ubiquitous... i'm just real curious to see when the trend will wane. i doubt it will be much different this year though.

    Last year, the pair of sunglasses I had on fell into the port-a-potty.



    I'd bring a cheap pair if I were you.

    i didn't see "fitovers" listed anywhere, so i picked blind person glasses. i guess they would have fit the "oversized" description, too.
