While, I still really like the idea of the crystal frames, Donna thinks I need some color, so of the 5 tried on back then the Haskell with blue trim is the clear1 front runner. When I look back at those pictures I still like the all clear Chamberlain best.
Then the other day I was watching a video review2 of the new Miata by a French auto journalist and he had on clear frames with bright red temple arms. Whhaaaat?!? Me likey, but not red. Maybe blue? Coutless internet searches have garnered no results worth anything. This got me thinking, what if I could create my own by mixing two different frames. Off to Paint Shop Pro.
You can’t tell from the photos online if any of the frames would be compatible with swapping arms, so I dashed off an email to firstname.lastname@example.org: “Is there any other frame with blue color temple pieces would fit on the Haskell frame?” Their answer: “The only temple pieces we carry are silver and you can find them on our Winston frames here. We do not carry frames that come with blue temple pieces. Sorry about that!”
I’ll save you a link click, the Winston are black and look like the frames Steve Reeves wore as Clark Kent in the old Superman TV show. Ain’t no silver there.
Maybe I’ll do another Home Try On and order those 4 frames, plus a 5th wild card, and see if I can can get any of those blue arms to adapt to one of the crystal frames…
