Any idea how much the Salt Flannery runs? There is a retailer nearby and I'm in the market for new frames.

I've seen that there is a Ray Ban Ultra Caravan release. How limited are these? Any way to track down a retailer for these?

These are special orders for shops. "Supposedly" there are only 1,000 bound for North America, but I dont really buy that, unless they are all serial numbered, which is unlikely if it is only $485 (Doesnt make sense to make them that exclusive and charges less than $1000, its not worth their time and money invest in this project). They are retailing for $485 or so. They are 18k gold plated.

In terms of who has them? Probably smaller boutique type shops. I don't know if I can find out who has them, but if you go into a store who has a Ray-Ban display case (usually means they push through a lot of inventory) they should be able to order it for you. BUT it might be a very limited run where not every store can get them. Mind you, if they order it in for you, you will have to take it regardless of if you like it or not.

BUT, IMO, if you are looking for gold plated try looking into Mont Blanc frames. Some of their sunglasses have glass lenses. Also, they come in yellow gold plated and also white gold plated. Quality is quite good too, better than most in that price range. I think they are pretty classy and also timeless classic styles.

Hey CityConnection, I'm about to be a grad student and want a classic look without the danger of trying too hard. I like the 50s-60s ivy style and am looking at these specifically: http://www.eyebuydirect.com/plastic-...wn-p-2131.html http://www.eyebuydirect.com/plastic-...ck-p-2130.html They're well within my budget (<$100) and don't have any frivolous logos, which I like. Thoughts or suggestions for other sites/brands?

thanks for replying to my post

I'm also thinking of getting a pair of sunglasses with really dark lenses. Do you have any that you recommend?

I recently bought a pair of Dolce & Gabbana Aviators, model number 2037. These lenses are very dark from the outside looking in. The eyes are not visible at all. Wearing the glasses, however, they provide the right amount of shade. Not too dark at all. CityConnection, what is your opinion of these glasses?

Those are both nice. I would suggest the second one though. The ones that are slightly larger are slightly more sylish but you want something more classic than stylish I believe. As for the no logos, I agree, if there is a great big logo on it, youre basically paying for that and not the quality and style of the frame. I have a few pairs that I am going to put up for sale soon that you might be interested in, I just cant get my camera to work. Give me a few days...

In any case, I would suggest the second one for a more classic/ sophisticated look.

I have a few in my blog, and someone asked me in this thread so I put up a few brands that I "support" (I dont get paid by them, I just think they are good brands that have a good value for the price). It should be a page or 2 behind....

I actually really like them. They are a bit of spin off the regular metal aviators. The style is hot. I dont know what season/year they are from but I like the style, it is stil current. The temples are also slightly lower on the front which will make them sit a bit higher which is a HUGE plus for those of us who have low nose bridges. They are a simple style without a huge Dolce & Gabbana logo on the side. I like it when they are more subtle like that. Hugo Boss and Giorgio Armani make a few like that with the simple written name as opposed to the large logos they usually put on name brand sunglasses these days.

All in all, I dont know how much you paid, but I like the style. D&G is generally a bit expensive though. But if you have the money to drop, good find!

I have not held them in my hand, so Im not sure in terms of quality but like a lot of other brands coming out these days, they have classic shapes that inspired by actor/directors/celebrities and so on. I dont know who distributes them so I cant say much about their quality and attention to detail (usually you can judge what a frame will be like, depending on who distributes/manufactures them). Their suggested retail of $250 or so seems fair. Their quality is about average if they are in that price range. That is the same as Gucci, G.A., Prada and so on acetate frames. If I were you and were interested in them, I would check them out and see if you like the style. At that price range you're basically paying for entry level high end eyewear (if that makes any sense).

Sorry I couldnt help much. Maybe someone else has more info on them.

There are infomercials about how they can repair lenses and remove scratches but unfortunately I have yet to see anything that can fix a scratch on a lens. Sorry to break it to you, but you basically have 2 choices...

1. If its not in your field of view or sight, you can just leave it as is.
2. If it bugs you, you have to get it replaced (not repaired).
