I like the shape it doesn't really have to have the T.

Late but 2 looks a lot better to my untrained eye.

Sidenote: Can anyone ID a pair of double bridge optical glasses that are acetate/plastin in the front and the temple is metal-ish and has little boxes near the hinge... Sorry for the vague description. I saw some dude rocking them on the train today and it resembled the pair I had that broke but cooler. I might get them next if anyone can ID them wink.gif Thanks for the help!

I think #1 is sitting a bit too low.

thanks for the input guys. I ordered #2. This is a pair of Roosevelt Chestnut from Warby Parker. I am aware of the slightly poor quality glasses, but I guess I will try and see how it is. If it's not that good I will get new ones when I go back to Asia in the summer. Glasses are much cheaper back in Asia. Anyone has any idea why? are they all made in China?

I need a pair of prescription sunglasses, and I'm trying to decide between regular lenses with 90% solid tint or Transitions Xtraactive lenses...anyone have a comment/experience with the latter? I haven't found a place with demo xtraactive lenses to try out and I'd be buying them blind (haha). I like the idea of being somewhere like a boardwalk or an amusement park, and being able to walk indoors briefly without having to worry about switching glasses, but still have really dark sunglasses when outside. Or also the added convenience of having the tint lighten somewhat when outdoors and suddenly becomes overcast. I would still carry around a pair of regular glasses for extended indoor situations. I realize the Xtraactives will cost a lot more, but I don't mind paying extra for the added convenience, assuming it works out for me.

Anyone know if there's any online stores selling Iyoko Inyake? I found this pair in one store but am finding it difficult to find it elsewhere. It's currently selling for $550... which is a little steep. Or does anyone know if anything similar is available?

Does anyone know if Oliver People's are still made in Japan. A sales rep at Selfridges told me they werent anymore, but I've heard mixed things...
post #2007 of 2672
Some OPs are still made in Japan, particularly the vintage models, however, some newer models are now made in Italy. OP was acquired by Luxottica sometime ago, so It wouldn't surprise me if some of the glasses are made in the same factory in Italy as all the other Luxottica owned brand.

I am looking at similar type frames. Paul Smith Wordsworth is pretty similar and much cheaper. Also Gotti makes a frame that is similar (brand seems hard to find in the US).

Anyone know much about Etnia? While I was trying to find a place that had NDG-1s, I had stumbled upon the brand at the place I got my last pair of glasses. I was pretty impressed with the feel and hinge design, especially compared to the OPs that I was hunting that were a bit more. It was really just in passing, so I don't remember the model, but I'm pretty sure it was this one here:

I was hoping someone here might have some experience as I searched this thread and google and didn't get too much info on their quality. I don't mind the pricing too much, but I do plan on getting trivex lenses if I do get them. I'm likely looking at over $400, and don't know if I'd rather just stick to wearing contacts and investing in sunglasses, which I don't have, instead. Also, if you guys recommend I consider something else, can anyone make suggestions on a black/clear acetate frame, particularly something similar to OP's storm finish. Thanks!

If you bought them at a B&M, go back and ask them to adjust them. If you bought them online, go to a B&M, ask them to adjust them and pay their 10-20 adjustment fee and if they don't have a fee, give them a tip. When you buy another pair online, go back to the same store and repeat.
