No. Not now. Not ever.

I was browsing the fashion blog High Snobiety when I came across this abortion of sunwear, made by Linda Farrow Vintage. The post includes not only these faux-football visors but another pair similar to the Lady Gaga TV shades, shades which serve two purposes — to cause bodily injury to any idiot wearing sunglasses you can’t see out of, and to make said idiot look even more idiotic.

Let’s stop right here, and I’m going to meet the fashion industry at camera two. What? We don’t have a camera two? Fine. We’ll do this the old-fashioned way.

Fashion people? Are you listening?


Stop doing stupid shit like this. I understand you have to push the boundaries of blah blah blah and whatever, but there is such a thing as a bad idea. And not matter what your weird co-workers think, you cannot have an idea so bad that it actually becomes good. The continuum of good and bad ideas is not a circle, that’s not how it works.

This is coming from a guy who has more than occasionally found himself the only straight guy in a clothing store, a person who understands that there are times when the fashion industry is allowed to sacrifice the practicality of clothing/accessories in order to push aesthetic boundaries.


Shape up or ship out Linda Farrow Vintage, you’ve been warned.
