At the Women of Fashion party a little while back I spotted none other than Mr. Chambray, Mr. RRL, Mr. Kicks, director, blogger extraordinaire, one Jake Davis doing his thing per usual. Check out those glasses!

    A genuine dude… Always keeping to his own aesthetic… Different shades of blue, different shades of denim. The frames set the look off and add to the overall look giving it a unique touch of style.

    One question – and if it doesn’t apply to the well-dressed fellow here my sincere apologies. Are those real glasses with corrective lenses, or are those just plain clear plastic? As a very poorly-sighted individual myself, I’m getting pretty tired of people rocking the Urkle style when they have no eye problems. This is like if I were to just roll around in a wheel chair because I thought they looked cool and ironic. Not exactly, but in a small superficial way, yes. I need to wear those things to survive man!

    From wikipedia: During the fifth season, Urkel devised the ultimate plan to win Laura’s heart: transforming his DNA using a serum called “Cool Juice” to suppress his “nerd” genes and bring out his “cool” genes. This resulted in the alter ego known as Stefan Urquelle.

    I have to chime in on this one because I’ve been having the debate with all different types of people about the clear lenses. These Paola Belles are absolutely not prescription. I was on the fence about wearing clear frames for a year. “Am I a faker?” It wasn’t until a good friend said, “if you love ‘em what difference does it make?”

    And that’s how I feel about style. People wear baseball caps everyday. They’re not playing ball or blocking out the sun. They just look good. And I don’t know any other way to top of the “pervie look” without my Paolo Belles.

    Swing by Silver Lining to cop a pair. For the Larry Davids of the world Jordan can throw in your prescription.

    Fair enough. I think you probably have enough Cool Juice to rock them, so I’ll try and open my mind on the issue and change my tune.

    I have deep respect for the Jake Davis blog, keep up the good work. As for clear lens glasses, I’m voting no. Like you, Jake, I have no need for corrective lenses and like you love the look but glasses are not earrings and your look is sharp and smart regardless. Not unlike my distaste for the sunglasses indoors move, the fake prescriptions have yet to sway me in acceptance. I fear I’ll have to wait for my elder years.

    If you didn’t tell me he was a semi-famous designer I wouldn’t have been able to tell from his style.

    Mez — you aren’t allowed to comment anymore. You are too negative.

    Yo man. Those glasses are pimpin’
    I’m really feelin’ this brotha’s look
    Ain’t afraid to admit it cause I’m secure in my heterosexuality y’all. Feelin’ me?
    Just bought myself some delicious Nike kicks today and I can’t wait to rock them with some socks and pants and a t-shirt or a shirt. Or a t-shirt and shirt on top of it for a layerin’ effect. Anyeay, that’s my 2 cents. Peace.

    I think he got his glasses at Silver Lining on Thompson street.
