The other day I was tooling around on Amazon.com after purchasing a book someone had recommended. During this process I recalled that Amazon sells tons of stuff, and thought I’d look up Ray-Ban Wayfarers. You know, the classic glasses like the ones above…
My thinking was that since Wayfarers cost $150-ish each, and my head-shape can best be described as “impressively unique”, that’s a pretty risky investment. After all, everyone wants to avoid the big-head/beady-eyes look.
So when I stumbled across several vendors for faux-wayfarers, I thought “heck, why not?”.
On Friday these bad-boys came in the mail:
Looking pretty good, eh?
Probably looks like I could pull off Tom Cruise in Risky Business, no?
Well, that’s a tall tall order, and nobody gets to see me sliding around in my boxers. Not for free at least.
But still, I thought it was a pretty decent look:
That is, until I showed them to the GF. She pointed out that one of the silver screw-cover things is missing on the left side.
It was all down hill from there.
Damn, knock-off manufacturer. Can’t even at least try to fake the details?
RIP my $2.00 investment in this experiment.
