    Vinyl record glasses by vinylize, like? Or not?

    I came across this brand www.vinylize.com. Vinylize upcycles unwanted vinyl records into eyewear. Killer concept! What do you guys think?

    Looks nice, although looking at the shop, those prices are very expensive for just the frames! You can get designer frames for half that price. If the frames were like 150-180 I might reconsider.

    The record collector within me screams "Nooo! The vinyl!!!"

    I'm a bit torn between thinking it's cool and corny. A bit "How can we make these hipster glasses even more hipstery?"

    Yeah I second that Marc. Interesting concept, but they are very contrived, and anyone wearing them would look a bit try-hard for me.

    PS I hope Dezso isn't the founder, owner and creative brain behind Vinylize now! ;-)

    I think they are pretty cool, but the prices are CRAZY.

    I can see them appealing to DJ types but it does seem like a bit of a gimmick.

    Given that they are in the same price range as Cazals, I know what I would go for.
