I had the following exchage with my eye doctor's assistant, an older guy in this office located in the Chicago Board of Trade at Jackson and LaSalle, as I was looking at glasses frames yesterday.
Optometrist assistant: "You need some new frames?"
Me: "Yeah, I don't want to wear contacts all the time." [picks up frames, tries them on]
OA: "Those are in fashion these days."
Me: "People going for that technocrat look, huh?"
OA: "I guess you could call it that."
