Odd glasses en masse

During one of many visits to Antonio Mannina in Florence this summer, Paolo and I realised that our choice of eyewar was very much driven by different aesthetical views. So while we sat there sipping coffee we all figured it would be fun documenting how we would look wearing each others glasses. And even if all this does not sound nearly as funny as it was in reality, the photo nevertheless speaks volumes. The differences between Paolo's and my own (sun)glasses are marginal but look how much our appearance is influenced by the right proportions. Even a few millimetres in glass size or width can have a huge impact.

In the Photo, I am wearing Paolo's bespoke glasses while Paolo is wearing my vintage Metzler shades. Antonio is wearing his own folding sunglasses in tortoise, made by Persol.
