Andrew Garfield Wears Oliver Peoples Eyewear in The Amazing Spider-Man

The two key stars of The Amazing Spider-Man are seen wearing prescription glasses during the film. Andrew Garfield as the re-vamped cooler version of Peter Parker and Rhys Ifans as Dr. Curt Connors. Okay, it's a little stereotypical for both of these characters to wear glasses, I mean, they are both incredibly intelligent, Peter Parker was always a bit of a geek and Curt Connors as the (slightly) mad scientist.  But it's also true to the source material and with today's fashion, both of these characters look super cool in their designer eyewear.

In the film, Peter Parker finds an old leather brief-case that once belonged to his father. Inside he finds his father's old glasses and puts them on - strange that he would have the exact same prescription as his old man? ;)

The glasses worn by Andrew Garfield (as Peter Parker) in The Amazing Spider-Man have been identified as Oliver Peoples - Larrabee according to the helpful readers over on the SelectSpecs.com blog.  Sadly, it doesn't look like they sell the glasses themselves at the moment, but in their post they have recommended some good alternative frames if you want to get the Peter Parker look yourself. They also list some good budget choices too.

Seems funny that Dr. Curt Connors also wears Oliver Peoples eyewear in the film... You don't suppose they paid the movie studio by any chance do you? ;)
