What I had hoped to pull off

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:

my very own wayfakers

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.
