idk things dont seem as tight, and the plastic feels cheaper. I really dont know how to explain it any differently. I switch sunglasses pretty much every 3-4 months...these got fazed out sooner then other pairs.


edit...and i spent my 1k post bitching about warby p...I support the company Im just a little particular for my eye-ware.

I just got a new pair of prada and i immediately replaced my waby parker. Prada's acetate quality just stands out when put next to my older WP.

Any thoughts on prodesign? I like their aesthetic and variety.

It's them or maybe lindberg or zero g titanium. My selections are limited due to having a large cranium. Looked at a lot of other makers like salt, Oliver peoples and no dice for wider frames.

Does anyone here wear Alain Mikli's eyeglasses? Are their designs out of date? I still wear AM x Starck ones & they are really comfortable.

I'm thinking about getting a pair of rimless glasses. The last pair I had were Kawasaki's about 10 years ago. Can anyone recommend good , updated brands? I don't want noticiable side details.

I had these before. They were nice and subtle but perhaps dated now?

Recommendations for a pair of eyeglass frames in the $200-$300 range? Thanks!

You need look no further than Lindberg's Spirit 2000 range, if you're after high-quality, minimal, rimless frames.

Thanks for the tip! I have never tried rimless glasses, but I am open to suggestions! I need nose-pads on my glasses though, or else they will continually slide down my nose :(

The last pair of glasses that I had were these pictured below:

Measurements on the last pair of glasses were 51 18 135. I like the look of the O&X frames, but I can't really find a place to see their glasses online.

No problem but the rimless recommendation was really for pocketsquareguy, who was after something similar to his previous pair.

If you must have nose-pads, then the majority of your choices will be metal frames (although not exclusively; several companies (Lindberg, Prodesign to name two) offer either 'Plastic' ranges with integrated pads or can factory fit pads upon ordering. Many opticians can also custom fit pads, although some skill is required to do this.)

The O&X/Kio Yamato website is here, if it helps:

Hey,
Haha I know the rimless recommendation was for pocketsquareguy, I just said that I never had rimless frames before in case you asked if I had tried them out. I have been to the O&X site but I believe for you to even look at a collection you must register, and it seems like that is only for businesses trying to order? I guess my follow-up question to you would be: can one wear glasses (without nose-pads) without them sliding down if one has a very small nose? If so, what styles would that open up? You said glasses with nose-pads are often metal... if I can get past nose-pads without the glasses sliding down my nose, that would open up plastic frames and more, right?

I see what you mean, although, to be fair, there's nothing particularly outstanding to single that brand out from many others in their price range.

Glasses sliding down your nose would tend to indicate a poorly fitting frame, or a badly adjusted one.
A skilled optician has quite a few methods at their disposal to fine tune the fit to ensure comfort and stability but a correctly sized frame (especially with regards to bridge width, overall width and temple length) is important from the start.
If lack of nose-pads is no longer a deal breaker, then you're opening up to the entire gamut of 'Plastic' frames, which generally allows for chunkier styles and more varied/exotic colours and finishes.

Thank you for the insight! I will definitely ask my optician about the proper fitting when I go back home for Spring Break! Until then I guess I will just try to look for potential candidates for a new frame.

Recs for sunglasses in a clubmaster-ish shape, that can be had new or on the secondary market (doesn't really matter to me) for <$150?  There's raybans ($100 new), of course, but curious about other potential options - especially when buying used.
