    Clip-On Sunglasses

    Afternoon people,

    I feel like I post an inordinate amount about glasses/sunglasses on here, I think it's mainly because they're not regularly discussed and being a daily glasses wearer, they're a pivotal part of my style.

    Anyhow, I bought a pair of Moscot Lemtosh about 4 months ago and the company offers a sunglass clip. Now, this is clearly a utilitarian piece as it allows you to switch between normal prescription glasses and prescription sunglasses simply by adding the clips. However, I'm interested in your opinions about the look/style of it.

    I've done a fair bit of googling which seems to suggest it's having a bit of a resurgence, but I very rarely see anyone rocking them and I feel as though it has quite a lot of negative associations. Sometimes when I look at them it reminds me of one of the bad guys from Doctor Who (whose name I forget), but that's probably just me being stupid.

    Anyhow, thoughts and opinions please, do any of you rock clip-ons? Do you like them?

    Here's some pics for inspiration:

    Just a sidenote - most of them are static and don't flip up like the ones RDJ is wearing.

    So thoughts people please!

    I've definitely seen a surge of them in the hipster part of town. I think you might be a bit ahead of the times here, but it looks like they are making a comeback.

    Yeah i like them but only if you naturally wear glasses anyway. Wouldn't buy clear lenses just to have clip ons over the top.

    Remote flipping function would be a touch

    I want to see them opening slow, like a garage door. Really build the anticipation.

    I've got a pair of garret leight ones and they're lit. Smart specs day to day and then sunglasses with the clip on.
