Are These Patty Hewes' Sunglasses?
The reason I'm asking is because I got an email from a "Damages" fan who asked if I knew where to buy a pair like the ones Glenn Close wore in the show. She wanted to buy them for her husband as a Christmas gift. I told her I didn't know, but I would try to find out.
In my surfing of the webosphere, I discovered there were quite a few "Damages" fans out there also asking where they could buy the glasses. I found lots of questions but no answers.
Well after a bit more cyber detective work, I came up with this pair. I have no idea if Glenn Close wore these or not, but after examining the scenes very closely in the show and examining the glasses very closely on the web, if they're not the glasses she wore, they're a damn good facsimile.
So for any others of you out there who want your spouses to look like Patty Hewes running from the law, I wanted to post the info about these glasses. They're from Ralph Lauren and they can be found here. But looking like a movie star will cost you because they're $400.
If you can't afford that, my other suggestion is to find a pair of inexpensive prescription frames like these and have tinted non-prescription lenses put in. That might come out a bit cheaper.
For any good friends of Glenn Close who might happen to browse by this blog, tell her I think she's fabulous, ask her where she got the glasses and then drop me a line.
