(y) or (n) ??

I really cant decide wether he was right or wrong to wear them. Sometimes i look at a picture and you just think they dont make him look cool then you look at another pic and he really pulls it off and he can look the coolest man on the planet with them.

What do you think?

Yep, I liked them too. He had to wear them later , didn't he?
Because of glaucoma, the light hurt his eyes.

The glasses were very cool back in the day he wore them. You may not think they are cool today, but you had to be there in the 70's to understand.

Yeah he looked cool with them on. He was a stylish dude. Everybody started to wear aviators after him. I wanted to buy a real pair for myself without the EP in them, but all I can find is the plastic ones. (n)

They were part of his style... I love them! :clap: And, he needed them too because of his health. So, go for the glasses!

There are glasses he wore around 1974, that looked frickin awesome, I wish I knew how to post pics. cprimm is right, we have to keep in mind the era he wore these.

I loved the sunglasses Elvis wore, but if they were also used to treat his glaucoma I do find it to be an odd way to treat that condition.

You "treat" glaucoma with medicine. Sunglasses just protect the eyes from the glare of the strong lights.

He invented cool, he was Mr. Suave, he was a innovator. Every man wanted to be him, and every woman wanted him. Frank Sinatra wasnt the coolest, Elvis Aaron Presley is. "Elvis was the firstest with the mostest" - Roy Orbison

Very cool shot Misty(y).

Here's one of my alltime favorite "glasses" photo's with Elvis wearing the Mad Tiger Suite in Indianapolis October 5th 1974.(y)

His glasses looked really cool in the 70s..not so sure about that shot from the 60s someone posted. Anyway it was in the 70s that he wore them the most often, and it was part of his style...yep they're definitly cool :)

The glasses were without doubt an item that has become synonymous with Elvis for good or for bad. Here are some of my fave pix.

I loved those sunglasses, i heard he had 300 pair. I bought some cheap plastic "Elvis Sunglasses" at a Walgreens and i wore them plus an "Elvis Wig" for halloween. They looked so cool on him. But as it has been said "Elvis was/is cool".

According to the late Dennis Robers, he (Elvis) had over 400 pairs of those glasses.

Read somewhere he paid 200 dollars for each pair.

Thanks for the photo's JJ great stuff.;)

And Dennis would sell them for much more than that on Ebay.....

Well of course he would fans are willing to buy stuff like that especially if EP had worn them.(y)

True, but there's no way I'd pay nearly $1,000,000.00 or more for a pair of Elvis's sunglasses. (Dennis never charged that much but still...he charged more than he should have, IMO).

Neither would I...if I had that kind of money though it would be different story..:P;)

Not quite, although it'd be nice to think he did.

There were cool guys before Elvis.

Dean Martin, for one, springs to mind.
