Hello,

Does anyone have any opinions or experience with Tom Ford sunglasses? I'm looking specifically at the "Ramone" and "Jack" models, at around the $220.00 price point.

Thanks

Tom Ford is from MAR. The quality is similar to that of Mont Blanc, Miss Sixty, Roberto Cavalli. The construction is done well for a mass produced product. If you can get it in the low $200s that is a steal. But I would be skeptical of their authenticity.

Ordered a pair of glasses from Warby Parker that should arrive sometime next week. I'll let everyone know my thoughts, but the buying experience was fairly painless and I liked being about to do the virtual try on. $99 shipped seems like a steal.

Any thoughts? I returned the 649s for a different pair. And I also uploaded a picture of an old pair of Wayfarers to see if you all thought they looked decent.

What sort of frames would compliment my face well? I've been doing some research, but haven't found many solid matchings between facial type and frame style.

Hey City,

I'm patiently awaiting your response ;-) I'm looking for alternatives to Lunor in terms of style and quality. The Lunor brand made in Switerland is out of my price range but I'm hoping to get an equally well made frame perhaps from another country in the $300-350 range.

Also, have you heard of SEE? They make their own frames I'm inquiring about the quality. Thanks again!

Got my frames from Warby Parker in today. Arrived 10 days after I ordered them. The prescription seems spot on. They are my first pair of this style, with the thick plastic frames, so I will need to get used to them. So far I like how they look on me, but have not had a chance to get some friend's opinions. Arrived in a nice box and I love the glasses case they came with. It's a light grey with a blue interior. Real class. Also included was a grey cleaning cloth with WP on the corner. Nice touch, even if it's a little thing. My only nitpick is that the hinges could be tighter feeling. They don't have a confident or quality feel to them. Don't get me wrong, they don't feel cheap, but I think it's an area the company needs to work on. $99, shipped with lenses included, is a steal for what I got. I would buy from them again and in fact plan to. These are black and I want to get a 2nd pair in a tortoise shell and different model frame.

I would suggest something with a higher bridge and a bit more depth. It doesn't have to be "vintage" but something with a bit more depth will reduce the length of your face and make it look wider. Hope that helps!

I think these ones look better. I don't know if they are the same frame but the 2nd pic looks like the lens is a bit deeper. It may be the camera angle but I think this is a much better match than the last frame you posted.

Lunor has a very distinct style. Their styling is very 80s and early 90s. That style is slowly coming back into style right now. You might be able to find that style in Armani's new collection of frames. The only other brand that I can think of that makes that style is Seraphine by OGI. I have seen them and handled them and they seem to be okay quality. I wouldn't say that they are good quality but I wouldn't say that they are poor quality either. I would put the quality a bit better than most main stream lines. But the price point will probably be less than what you're looking to spend.
