After a bajillion years, I finally have a new pair of specs! I got it from Paterno, Quiapo last weekend.
Believe it or not, I got teary eyed inside Ronnie and Joe the moment they told me that fact. It felt like a heartbreak and seriously I had a hard time to move on. Until after a few weeks I messaged Retrosuperfuture on their social media sites and even texted them but yeah it’s sold-out and even on Retrosuperfuture’s website. After a few more weeks, I settled to look for a look-a-like. I decided to go to Quiapo to get a pair of prescriptions because my parents told me it’s better to have it done there than from the mall. Anyway, after my usual Hidalgo-fix where I usually GAS for like 2 hours, I went to the street next to it called Paterno. Paterno street is known for being the spectacles heaven, where you can get your prescription for as low as 800Php!
It was kinda hard to look for a pair like the one from Super’s because I am very picky about this aviators. Yes there are a lot of aviator frames out there but there’s this something that I can’t even explain but I know which is which and which is perfect. And after the numerous shop-to-shop hunt for the perfect pair… I finally found the one! The moment I saw this pair, I felt butterflies and saw rainbows hahahaha, ganern! I asked the shop staff for it and called it mine in a heartbeat!
Say hello to far-sighted 50/50 me! Anyway, I promise to take care of this pair and I am so happy I can also FINALLY channel the 80s/90s asian look, hehe.
