That 1998 s dubious because I've seen photos of Jobs in a biography dated 1997 which look like exactly the same round frame....uhoh.gif

So Queen Elizabeth II gets her eyewear from Roger Pope and Partners - the London optician. Does anyone know which designer/maker her recent frames are? From the small percentage of photos I've seen her wearing glasses I note last year she wore a rimless frame, but this year I see her in a metal or plastic frame again.

I have a question if you are still around to answer. I have a pair of Ray Bans that are not adjusted for my face properly. I've taken them to countless Sunglass Huts (which is where I bought them from) and nobody can get it right. Is there a place in NY that can help adjust my frames according to my face so my glasses sit comfortably? If anyone has any ideas I would love to hear them. I wouldn't mind paying if I can get them done right. One of my main problems is that the left side pops out more than the right side and when I smile, my right cheek hits the frame and it's very annoying. Since we don't have symmetrical faces, that is probably it. So it needs to be adjusted accordingly and I have no idea where to get it done!

I'm back on a come back tour.

I will try to get to some of the questions when I have a bit of time. When I was on the board often, it would take me 30-1hr some days to answer the questions. That's why I stopped responding to the repeat questions and the "ID this frame". It seems like the thread has been going well without me though. Lots of knowledge accumulating on SF.

LOL. Sometimes it really feels like that.

I'm not an expert nor do I come off as one, but I just know a bit more than the average person.

I'm glad that I can be of assistance.

NEWS: LUX has also purchases Alain Mikli Group which consists of Alain Mikli, Mikli par Mikli and Phillipe Starck. The Alain Mikli group will operate under the OP umbrella.

This is an issue that I come across all the time. This is a list of reasons why a B&M store would charge more than online.

1. Licensed opticians and optometrists will be dispensing and they need to pay to keep thier license current and will continually educate themselves.

2. Overhead: They are in prime locations that are easy for you to access

3. Stock: They will stock the SALT sunglasses that you are interested in as well as 20 other brands with MANY other styles.

4. Adjustment: They will know what fits and doesn't fit and will adjust them for you.

5. MSRP: Not all places will charge the same amount. Somewhere with a higher rent, would probably charge more because they have more overhead.

6. Buying experience: You get to meet your local opticians and know where to go when you need help.

7. Expertise with RX: not all lenses are created the same nor will they all fit the same. Buying rx glasses online is sort of like buying a tailored suit. Sure it could fit but it could also be a terrible mistake. Case in point: Clearly Contacts. Their lenses are rubbish and they try to sell thier house brands as if they are real designers.

.... And the list goes on.

I'm not saying that B&M is the only way to shop, but you should be aware of why they charge more than online. But selling online is like anything else, less overhead, usually less stock and less upfront costs. (USUALLY)

TOKI is definitely well made. I have seen countless people use them for well over 5 yrs without any problems. Whether it is worth the 500 is up to you. If you need to stop eating for a week, you should reconsider. If you are asking if the frames are $500 frames, I would say yes. The styles are conservative but elegant and the quality of workmanship is really good, IMHO.

my face: human being! (Click to show)


i would get the black pair if it matters. i don't know much about mykita but they seem like they're probably decently nice. do you have an opinion?

thanks very much for all this.

I cant see the picture of your face. But if you think that it suits you, I say go for it. You have to be comfortable in the frame. Some people buy frames that are popular or that are "stylish" but they look terrible in the frame, and in turn feel sheepish in the frames. IMHO, that is a bad purchase. If you think you may have buyers remorse, stay clear of it.
