I never thought I'd see the day when I'd be excited about getting new glasses, since I've had them since I was a kid, but these I really like. They are a light metal frame with a pierced out design on the side arms and corners. They are black in color, hence the b/w photo. I got them at my eye doctors, which was convenient and I didn't have to go to one of those huge eyeglass stores. He doesn't have a huge selection, but he does have some pretty stylish stuff I must say.
