I’ve been wearing glasses since the age of five, so when asked to write about one of my most-used fashion pieces for this series, my current Rhude x Thierry Lasry "Rhodeo" frames felt like the most obvious choice. Some might say a little too obvious, but these particular frames are my most prized acquisition in some years. Rhude is a too-cool-for-school casual menswear brand based out of Los Angeles, and Thierry Lasry is a French designer with an eponymous eyewear brand boasting highly elevated silhouettes made from striking materials. And together they've crafted the perfect pair of frames for a New Yorker who happily finds himself smack dab between the two extremely different fashion scenes.

A fun fact about these frames is that they were actually designed, marketed, and sold as sunglasses. Taking sunglasses to my optometrist for a lens replacement has been a hack of mine since my freshman year of college. I've found that sunglasses tend to offer larger, bolder shapes than most optical frames. And, as someone with a wide face, it's a choice that suits me. I've converted the lenses in RayBan Wayfarers, oversized Celine frames, and a pair of Maison Margiela sunglasses from an early collaboration with Mykita. (If you want to try this yourself, my advice is to choose frames with a flat lens. Any curve in the lens whatsoever will render an optical swap impossible.)

When I wear these frames I instantly feel more hip than I really am, or ever will be. They're like a superhero cape for my face. And given that they allow me to see, they quite literally have superpowers! If you're forced to wear something every day, It's important to pick a version that makes you feel this way. I've also recently been dabbling in the art of drag (follow @dotdeville!) and instead of blocking my eyebrows out with glue each time I apply makeup, I have elected to shave them. I especially love that these frames hide my brash—but totally justified—decision to shave my brows. They're perfect.
