Actually, by that time I was sort of more interested in the rounder version, and his reply was "You can have any frame you want as long as you pay for it" (or something like that). I replaced this frame with the "Steve Jobs" Lunor - mainly because I was excited about wearing this conversation piece and not because of problems with the 215.
Many years ago what was probably our most prestigious optical shops sold Lunor and I really came to like the look. Later, I found Lunors very difficult to find in the American cities where I was, and I'd ask every decent-looking optician if they sold them. Finally my most regular optician had the sign in their window and I jumped at the opportunity. I think Lunors are very well made, however my second 215, which I wore several years, did eventually discolor slightly and my optician was able to buff off most of the discoloration, as he does with other frames. I have the kind of body chemistry whereas virtually every frame - metal (including with titanium), plastic, high-end brand, etc.) discolors and/or peels on me.
I like many Lunor styles - particularly the metal, because they are more likely to closely resemble the really old, old styles. I love the Lunor image, website, Facebook page, etc. - the whole enchilada. You'll always find a bunch of them on eBay, and generally quite expensive for eBay frames meaning, I assume, that they keep their value and reputation more than most brands. Nonetheless, I went back to Lafont - in my case luxury frames and in their "Reedition" line.
