$500 A Pair Designer Star Wars Themed Eyeglasses

October 8, 2012


Because George Lucas believes that absolutely everything should be available with a Star Wars theme, here's a line of glasses from Japanese eyewear manufacturer Aigen. They're available in Luke Skywalker, R2-D2, Stormtrooper, Boba Fett and Darth Vader designs and cost $500 without lenses. For reference, I paid $80 for my last pair of glasses WITH lenses. I broke them though. Now? Now I just squint. "How many fingers am I holding up?" JESUS -- don't sneak up on me like that.

Hit the jump for shots of the rest.






Thanks to Jake, who doesn't wear glasses but does wear aviator goggles and a scarf sometimes when he's pretending to be a barnstormer.

    Has anyone ever or even boughten these Star Wars themed eyeglasses off the internet here? Just curious to know if anyone has ever boughten a pair of these, and if it's worth the investment or money? Unless your rich and money is no object....If anyone has ever boughten a pair of these please let me know the quality of them, and your experience purchasing them? I'm thinking of purchasing a pair for myself with the lenses put in professionally. Thanks

    Your probably all wondering is he loaded?

  • Where's Sheldon and Leonard now? oh man..

  • I dnt knw about 'star wars' bt the glasses is good!!!!!!

    STOP WHORING STAR WARS ON EVERY CONCEIVABLE PRODUCT!!! It really puts a thorn in my balls. Plus $500 WITHOUT lenses? The lenses are the most expensive/important part of a pair of glasses... sure you could argue 'designer' in most instances but here?.... Really??...

    my idea for a new star wars productline: R2D2-Tampons.

  • 1st & 5th look really nice, but c'mon! 500 bucks is way too steep for the average Star Wars fan.

    Hey, let's not over-exaggerate the enthusiasm with which Catholic priests jump all over free kiddie rides during the annual 'swimsuits for kids' fundraiser festival... its just not fair to the priests.

    For more information about this product and others like it, let me refer you to Glove & Boots, The Evolution of the Hipster!

    I think the designer took the year Star Wars came out into account. Fugly and outdated is a understatement so you know this will be the hipster item of the season
