Want to keep it around 200 or less. Looking for the metal bridge and the rounded lenses in particular. Many thanks in advance.

More than $200 but Dior Homme.

I haven't been on here too much because I've been busy with life. But, if you enjoy well crafted eyewear, follow me on instagram @throughaspectacle.

Transitions is actually a brand. You use facial tissue NOT kleenex. Same thing.

Transitions turns the darkest and become the most clear. Although, they aren't going to be like the commercials. Indoors, they'll still have a bit of color. If you work in sales, work with clients or customers, its probably not the best thing.

Also for those with high prescriptions, were you advised to choose smaller frame sizes?

"high definition" is a gimmicky term. Free form or digital surface is what you're looking for. As well, they are not all designed the same. We all have laptops, which are great, but not all of them function as well as the next. Same thing with the digital lenses. It is the computer program that makes them good or bad. For instance, Hakim (in Canada), Pearl Vision and Lens Crafters makes house brand "high definition" lenses and they are junk. Don't bother with Hakim, at all, they bought old technology machines and software, which defeats the purpose of "new technology".

In any case, with your RX, you will see a good difference in vision. It will help your peripheral vision, the lenses will come out a "bit" thinner and so it will be lighter as well. But the biggest improvement over regular lenses will be the peripheral vision.

As for the frame, you can pick any size frame. With the true digital lenses, they will make several measurements to customize the lenses for you, in your rx, into that frame.

I like the 60s vibe, the slight modern shaping, and the drop temple. If these were for sale, I'd just buy them. Any suggestions for an alternative?

I don't know what frame will look similar, but take that into a store and ask them for a similar shape and tell them you want the same tint. I'm sure they will be able to find something similar. For a similar effect on the lenses, I don't know if those are mirrored, but if you get clear lenses with a slight tint (10%) and get a mirror coat, you will probably achieve a very similar look.

That's a very common style. Prodesign, Carrera, Boss, Gucci and you'll find tons of inexpensive frames like that. That flat metal is very common among Safilo brands.

Actually they reintroduced them as sunglasses - so I bought a pair. But I knew the sizing might be an issue and it was - so back they went. The C&T 822s looks pretty similar and might be a bit wider.

Tried on some Gotti Neville frames - they looked nice and elegant, so those might be my next "lightweight" frames.

Moscot Lemtosh will probably not fit. They don't fit all that wide.

For wide frames, check out Hugo Boss has a few 56-58 eyesizes, Ic Berlin, Kio Yamato, Lindberg all fit wide and can be adjusted. Tag Heuer has some temples with a bow in it too. And then there are house brands like Fat Headz (or something like that) and Biggu. Or you can go with a Safilo house brand like Chesterfield, Safilo and Elasta.

I don't have longterm experiences with Gotti, but they seem well crafted and they have a reputation of that as well.

As usual though, it's important to get the nose-pad arms properly adjusted, to reduce any pressure points, however a little redness is often quite hard to avoid after a full day of wear, depending on the weight of your lenses.

Correct. a little bit of redness is inevitable just due to weight. As for the adjustment, they are very adjustable and they have pad options, like the asian pads that are a bit thicker. But pads are not just determined by the pad arms alone. it needs to be properly adjusted from the bridge to the temple tips.

Asians need smaller bridge sizes for a better fit. With plastic frames, it will sit higher and with a metal frame they are easier to adjust when they are closer together. With pad arms, when they are too far apart, they over extend beyond their structurally-sound-zone. And aesthetically, it looks better closer together.
