One word - glam.
As spending way too much on shopping , limited myself to 1 shade ( not including the less expensive one of course , those are for the season , not for collection =P ) Culter and Gross is my this year pick , in red. Super COOL, big glasses - hide dark circle and up for no-make-up-but meeting-people-while-pretending-to-be-too-cool time. Attraction-seeking yet glam, consider the attraction I have caught and how my friends make me take it off --when they forgot their shades LOL Oh yea, did I mention the main point? It is firm, strong, solid ,etc ....consider me being too lazy to carry the case ( I did at first , too big) , I just put , no throw even , randomly in my bag (if it is big), my clothes (if wearing v-neck which is like 80% of my clothes ) or my jeans' pocket. Oh yea ...it is now on the floor ( I am a very messy person btw) Still in good sharp, wearable and trendy ... a good choice of investment ;)
Cutler and Gross are a great brand, very U.K. very well designed. And if you didn't know Cutler and Gross has a look, it's well defined in the sculptural work which define their (ultra mod )optical line, I don't mean to mislead and say that the Cutler and Gross look is avant guard, no their style is a classic style and like any great piece of eye-wear Cutler and Gross upgrades your look in a subtly cool way.
