post #1876 of 2686


 

Check out the Shuron Ronsir on the shuron.com website.  They are sold by framesdirect.com and bestbuyeyeglasses.com.   Shuron was manufacturing the clubmaster style before Rayban.  The Rayban Clubmaster came out to compete with the Shuron model.   Shuron (at least the company name is same as it always was but the ownership of course changed, they went through all sorts of corporate changes over years) still makes the Ronsir.   Rayban started making Clubmasters again a few years ago and still makes them.

Other than the original Raybans, I only know of Tommy Hilfiger. There are other brands that make variations of it, that I cant recall right now...

This is an old post below, maybe it is more common knowledge about Barton Perriera now.  It is a company started by 2 people who worked for Oliver Peoples.   One of them is Patty Perriera, i forgot the name of the guy who is the co-founder.    Their frames are very popular now and worn by some celebrities, etc. I dont know anything about the manufacturing or distribution but the company has a website with very nice photos of all of their model frames and links to all of their retailers.    I havent seen any discount source of this brand of frame.  I like the designs of many of the models, they seem to be very nicely designed in my opinion.  For instance i was looking at the Caine model in a store a few months ago and now Brad Pitt wore it in a TV interview.

I think that model is named/inpsired after a frame Michael Caine wore years ago when he was on some tv show in England playing some sort of spy.  I didnt buy the frame, it is about $350.

I wear the Sidewinders because they fit me a little better, because they come in 50-20.   The Freeway are only available in 50-22 not 50-20.   There are more color selections in Freeway.

Sidewinders. I like the key hole bridge much better. It has more "distinct" features whereas the freeway is a bit more flow-ey. I like the sharper image of the sidewinders.

AO used to have the contract to supply miltary.  Then RE won the contract.  The designs may be dictated by military so thats why they look the same.

Lunor is pre WWII England styling.  If you read through the Lunor website, there are references to trying to emulate/influenced by these very vintage high quality glasses.   Lunor resembles 80's-90's because some of the styles came back in vogue, but the original frames were much smaller, as are Lunor's.  When I discovered Lunor frames i was disappointed that they only come in small lens sizes ie 42-46cm, i was looking for 49 like the 1980's frames.

 

The reason the original vintage frames were so small is because the lenses were glass and very heavy.   In the 80's+ the frames got larger due in part to the new lighter lens materials.  But Lunor frames (of the round or p3 type style) are all quite small like the very old ones they are based on.

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

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.

Will like to ask for some recommendations.I'm considering OP sheldrake and Moscot lemtosh.I don't get to try them on yet,but some of my friends mentioned that it might not suit my oval face,while some thinks that its quite ok.It looks ok to me after using the moscot's try on feature though the frame looks indeed slightly round but not to the extend it feels weird. What's your opinion on these frames on a oval face shape?

 

I quite like the kind of design like the sheldrake and lemtosh as I've previously owned a ps-294.Am looking for something similar and the sheldrake/lemtosh are probably the closest I can find.

 

Any other recommendations?

thoughts on these moscot frames?

can't decide if I want round-ish frames or rectangular ones, something like these salt ones. These are probably a little too big for my face unfortunately though...

(have a narrow/small skull apparently, so it makes it even harder to find frames I like)

I actually quite like those. I'm uncertain about the nose piece, but it would all depend on how they look once worn.

 

I'm looking for something similar as I recently tried to bold, plastic frame aesthetic and concluded it's too chunky for my narrow, small face. 

 

If there wasn't such a discrepancy in price, though, my preference would lie with the Bennet.

moscot have this virtual try on feature quite useful perhaps can give it a try?

 

hmm..those moscot GLENN are nice..

I actually tried on the glenns when I was in NYC recently, and they are one of the very few frames that I feel fit my face. Just been having second thoughts about what kind of aesthetic I want

Some of the Salt frames look really great, but most are going to be just a little too big for me I think. The search continues

Just noticed these: the Salt 'clay'. Size I'm looking for, but no nose pads and no way to try them on first...might have to take a chance anyways though

Are no nose pads really a deal breaker? Plastic glasses don't tend to use them, and I don't find them any less comfortable.

Also, where do you live? They might be available in your city.

Heads up since I know a few of you are looking into Oliver Peoples eyewear. I'm selling OP O'malleys. Prescription lenses can also be put in. They're one of my favorite glasses from OP.
