They are much darker in real life. They look black when I wear them and you definitely can't see my eyes through them
(with part of my cat's leg)
And the ones he is talking about:
If you saw someone wearing these would you think they looked Willy Wonka-ish, or is my cousin just a jerk?
EDIT: I only wear them when I'm riding my bike, which is mostly on my street. So it's not like I'll be going out to places with them on.
