We at Gafas are huge fans of the Simpsons! Everyday at the shop there is usually at least one Simpson’s quote being uttered by the staff. Whether it’s, “Don’t have a cow man!” or “Disco Stu likes disco music.” there’s always something to be said about the community of Springfield. So, we thought it would be fun to look at some of the characters from the show and see if we can find glasses in our shop that the real versions of those characters would wear! Check out the comparisons below:
Milhouse Van Houten
Milhouse, Bart Simpson’s trusty best friend, would definitely be found wearing these red frames from Entourage of 7. With that retro/Sally Jesse Raphael look these frames have a cool trendy factor to them that Milhouse would be completely oblivious to.
Just imagine these frames with purple lenses – which we can totally do. Only the master of suave, Disco Stu, can pull off glasses like these in Springfield. The epitomize fashion, style, and confidence, qualities that Disco Stu knows all about.
(Leisure Society – Bone )
Poor Hans Moleman is the butt of many jokes throughout Springfield. Due to his cataracts Hans is almost completely blind, which has resulted in him suffering unfortunate, seemingly fatal events. Because of this we thought these frames from Leisure Society would work with Hans. They’re simple, nothing really flashy about them, but on the right face (which isn’t Hans’) these frames would look great!
(Gold & Wood)
Springfield’s foremost nerdy scientist is known for being extremely intelligent, though somewhat mad and socially inept. Frink often tries to use his bizarre inventions to aid the town in its crises but they usually only make things worse. Though he sports a very fashionable bow-tie, for the most part Professor Frink is quite reserved in his everyday wear. Because of this we chose a rimless frame from Gold and Wood. They are simple. Sophisticated. And probably go with any ensemble….even if it’s a lab coat and bow-tie!
