Ask the MB: Aviator Eyeglasses?

Ask the MB: Aviator Eyeglasses?
Q: You seem to really like the aviator style for sunglasses. Do you consider them MB for eyeglasses as well?
--John


A: Aviator frames without tinted lenses are like non-alcoholic beer or vegetarian Beefaroni -- they're missing the thing that makes the thing the thing! To illustrate our point, look at Bradley Cooper in tinted aviators (top) and GQ Style Editor Jim Moore in aviators with clear lenses. The former displays classic MB style. The latter, as we've observed in the past, looks like our high school algebra teacher. If you want to stay on the winning side of this equation, leave the clear aviators to Moore and Lumberg, mmm'kay?
