Remember This?: Flip-Up Glasses

flip up shades


All the cool nerds were walking around rockin’ the flip ups in the late ’80s. (Yeah, I might not have been born at the time, but I know people, who know people, who know people. Feel me?) Despite the age gap, I’m old enough to remember one image when this old fashion fad comes to mind. Yep, you guessed it, this guy ↓↓

Thanks to Dwayne Wayne from the classic sitcom A Different World, the flip-up trend really took off! (I don’t think there’s one person who doesn’t see his face whenever these cool, but geeky, little gadgets are the topic of discussion.) But since I’ve been seeing a lot of these shades for sale on various fashion outlets in recent years, all I want to know is: who’s still wearing these things?
