The style is unique though. Not very many companies will make the that thick brow line frame with the thick temples. You might be able to find variations of that for a more conservative price.

"Tortoise" or "Horn?"
This is an excellent photo, from an Asian website, of a frame almost identical to my Lunor 215 color 03. If you saw a frame such as this would you label it tortoiseshell or horn (e.g. buffalo horn)? It has the basic parallel lines such as horn typically has but the coloring is well within the tortoiseshell range. I have, however, seen frames of authentic horn with similar coloring - sometimes solid.
Lunor is fabulous but the frame is, admittedly, acetate. However, I'm just wondering the overall impression the frame gives as to material. Lunor avoids the question by calling the color "light havana." Other eyewear makers use "Havana" also in labeling their frames.

kind of a random question, but has anyone had any experience with a counterfeit salt eyeglass frames? this may be misguided but i cant imagine there would be much of a market since it's not a well enough known brand for that, but just curious if they are out there (not talking about "well any brand is counterfeited"). in any regard they have a couple of frames i like and missed out at the warehouse sale, and have seen more of them pop-up for sale recently. Im guessing a significant number of these are resellers of the remnants of that sale, but I am also a bit wary of getting cheap knockoffs.

Regarding the metal composition of my Lunor frame's hinges, as referred to again a few posts ago, I finally have received what appears to be the definitive answer. Someone from Lunor wrote to my latest inquiry the hinges are made of:

CuNi7Zn39Pb3Mn2

I'm finding references to this alloy on the web but none related to eyewear hinges. Is anyone familiar with this copper-nickel alloy used for this purpose? I'm sure the material is top-notch; Lunor is really known for the quality of its hinges. Several opticians have told me, though, the hinges are of sterling silver - the response to my inquriy that pleased me the most. But this alloy should wear better, I suppose.

CC, sorry for the late reply but I think Salt says something to that effect here in the second big block of text

Maybe misunderstood but sounds like it. I keep forgetting to ask at the shop where I picked up the Warners

Sorry if this has been discussed, I read as much of this as I could. What is your opinion on lenses and protective coatings? I need single vision pretty middle of the road prescription (I don't have my Rx in front of me, but I've never had a problem getting my Rx in any frame and my lenses are pretty thin). Anyway, I've generally tended towards Zeiss/Essilor/Crizal Alize lenses/treatments lately (in fact I don't exactly remember which are lenses and which are treatments) in recent years, but I wonder how much of a benefit these up-charges provide or are house branded leses with glare-proofing/antireflection and scratch-proofing essentially the same thing. Which widely available lenses/treatments offer the best bang for your buck in terms of clarity, cleaning, and glare/reflection? Thanks Edit: Maybe to simplify the question, comparing the house brand anti-scratch, anti-glare vs. Zeiss Claret which has built in AR scratch proofing vs. adding Crizal Alize (or Advance, or whatever they are up to now), do the premium lenses make sense?

I recently made a pair of Gucci spectacles after confirming with the SA that it was unisex. However, when I got home and looked up the model no., I found out it was a female frame. May I ask what's the difference between male and female frames?

Any recommendations of places in NYC to repair frames?

CC, how would you compare the quality/build of titanium Salt frames to Dita titanium frames or Kio Yamato titanium frames?
post #1377 of 2673
I got these frames as a gift but they are too large (54 lens) for my face. Anyway to make them smaller? I don't know anything about acetate.
