Mykita's sheetmetal frames are one of the most durable ones out there IMO. They can feel flimsy, especially the ones from the lite line, but when the frames are bent they just snap back to shape. You'll have to be careful about the lenses as with most sunglasses, but the frames would be difficult to break. The only downside is that the hinges can loosen over time, but I believe that they can be readjusted. I don't believe IC! Berlin has that problem if you're looking for...
I think it's only women's and children's pretty much?
So the bamboo tees don't come in u-neck form even with MTO?
Is all the bamboo material being made into heavyweights? I have both the heavyweights and the tees, and the tees are far more useful. The light weight is perfect for a lightweight garment. And if they were U-necks on top of that...
The way the temples on that last one get thicker towards the tips makes me think they may be Cutler and Gross... I'm not sure which model, though. The 0734 has that keyhole bridge, but the 0737 has the diamond rivets. This was so long ago that it's highly possible that they were made by a company that's no longer around, though.  Since they're acetate they will flex to some degree, but the hinges themselves aren't spring-loaded. You'd want to get a proper temple width for...

Agree about the fit on LGR's.

I don't know of any high end brands that are as committed to using glass lenses as LGR is (a few have glass lenses here and there), but there are some other options with great optics if CR-39 is acceptable. I'd definitely take a look at Salt...
Thanks! I got the high Velcro gats in white. My other MMM's are the black moto ones, so crackled leather was expected. The white ones didn't look as new as most whites, so it had me wondering.
Anyone else get white MMM's from Spence and have them look kind of dirty when they arrived? The soles look pristine, so I'm wondering if it's an MMM thing. 
That Eastdane sale brings the Billy Reid Bond Peacoat in charcoal to under $350, lowest I've seen so far. I got mine and the material is actually 90% wool, 10% nylon, though, so not sure if I'll keep it.
