Latest in Ridiculous American Apparel Stuff

In what I'm sure will be a regular update on the [C]R, I must point out that American Apparel is now selling more ridiculous shit. In this case it is eyewear, as evidenced on their website.


What the hell is this? Not only are they ugly, but aren't these all the same glasses?

PS - I think I would actually punch someone in the face for wearing the "Hanover" style. Just a warning to you Wicker Park doucheburger hipsters.

those Hanover glasses reek of the 80's. I mean really, retro is cool, but not daily.

Bonfire of the Vanities comes to mind for some reason.

There's enough glass in those frames to build a greenhouse.

What a coincidence. I'm having doucheburgers for dinner tonight!

Don't knock 'em til you've tried 'em.

Airam said...

Those are fucking ugly. I would not only punch but also power bomb the person who thinks it's ok to where those specs in public.

KAZ said...

But why just punch the Hanover when the other 3 are identical?

I shall worry about this.

I am torn between commenting:

and:

WHAT?!

I'm pretty sure my Mom had the Hanover's in 1984. Who knew she was a hipster.

Is that Andrew McCarthy? Jesus, they really are going retro!

Loaf said...

If that's fashion, I'm more glad than ever for getting my eyes fixed!

Never hit a guy with glasses, unless he's wearing Hanovers, in which case it's compulsary.

ok, i skimmed the picture and text, and at first i thought they were called 'hangover' glasses, which might be kinda funny.

but no. aa just sucks as much as i already thought they did.

Ellen Aim said...

Frankly, I'd expect a Whit Stillman aficionado such as yourself to be able to write an intricate diatribe as to the subtle differences between these frames.

In all their awesomeness.

I hate AA and all their hipster douchbag models.

Chris said...

Um... I used to wear the Hanover style glasses in high school (it was the 80's). I thought they were cool...

...I got beat up a lot. A. Lot.
