I think women look great in them. Guys, I don't are.

They are certainly not the worst fashion sin. That would be the skinny jeans that ride halfway down the buttocks while leaving an unused pouch under the groin. Not only do they look dumb, they can't be comfortable.

  • Massive shoulder pads on women
I could probably go on...
This is a good list. I'll never forget the cashier at Whole Foods who had his pants somehow rigged so that in back, they were below his rear all day. A note in the store's comment box put an end to that. He lasted maybe another 6-8 months, and was gone.

They're not as bad as the clip-on man bun.

These are hipster glasses


The one good thing about them is it's easy to spot a left wing snowflake and to stay away from them if you decide

I'm pretty sure those are worn by younger people and are not in any way an indication of party affiliation.

You mean, it's easy to spot a young trendoid who needs vision correction.

Those frame types have been worn for awhile now. Well, too long to fall in the cutting edge hipster category. I see more hipsters wearing wire rimmed glasses now. But a lot of youthful & somewhat fashion conscious people do wear the above frames though. They look good.

I'm sure they're grateful to have the presumptuous, judgemental jerks stay away.

They look good? How so? They're not flattering. They overwhelm the face. What's annoying is that eyewear design follows youth demand, so that when something clumsy and unattractive-looking like this comes along, it takes over the eyewear fashion industry, such as it is, so that people who are past their 20's (which covers a lot of terrain--almost the entire adult world) have trouble finding attractive choices. Selection outside of the major trend is limited, except for the rare shops that carry European eyewear.

They look like RayBan Wayfarer frames in the posted pic.
