Chris Hayes's Glasses: Good Or Maybe Not So Good? (PHOTOS, POLL)

So, we've been meaning to raise this for a while, because it's a topic of some debate within the HuffPost "community."

It's a topic that's sparked a lot of back-and-forth over some pretty profound issues.

We speak, of course, of Chris Hayes's current pair of glasses.

Now, the MSNBC host has always worn glasses, but a month or two ago, he switched from a sleeker black frame to a heavier, bigger brown frame.

It is this change that's prompted all of the discussion in our office.

Let's show the evidence.

Here are Hayes's old frames:

And here are his new frames:

Some people have said that they like the new pair, and that Hayes looks good in them. Others say it makes him look sort of old, and not in a good way. One wag even compared him to the owl in those old Tootsie Pop commercials.

So, we're opening up the question to you. Tell us what you think!

Note: "This is stupid" is not a poll option! Not everything has to be serious all the time, so please hold off if you were thinking of some response along those lines.
