Take A Look At Men’s Eye Wear Through The Century!

Did your grandpa wear thick horn-rimmed glasses when he was younger? Maybe your dad wore those huge gradient shades from the 70s. My dad STILL wears those gradient shades from the 70s…seriously, he’s worn the same pair for 40 years now. Those things are apparently indestructible! Hey, dad, as long as you don’t grow out that handle bar mustache again, you can keep your glasses, no problem!

I hadn’t really paid any attention to the style of men’s glasses before, but seeing them represented all in a row (along with some really cool outfits) made a really cool timeline. I liked seeing them and remembering the people I knew who actually had those styles of glasses! I sent this video to them with captions like, “remember the 80s!” Even though looking back on the older styles was nostalgic, I was also wondering what people were thinking. The style from our current 2010+ looking neat and clean and…dare I say…”hip?” But in another 10 or 20 years, my kids will ask us what we were thinking.

What will they think of next? I have no idea, but I hope it doesn’t somehow revert back to the 80s…I think we have all learned our lesson!

What did you think of this list? Did these styles meet your expectations, or did you think that they missed a few styles? I was waiting for the thin aviators or the colored sunglasses, but I guess those didn’t make enough of an impact on style history! Like and share this video with your friends! I really liked this!
