sunglasses and eyeglasses are two different categories, because with eyeglasses the lens quality is dictated by your optometrist not the brand itself. what we're really talking about when it comes to eyeglasses is frame quality, and there's really little difference between warby parker and oliver peoples MIJ preluxxotica -- I own both. the warby parkers are a little flimsier, but not enough to justify the $600 price difference.

also you know OP is owned by luxxotica right?

i could maybe see paying $700 for some MTM glasses or something out of real tortoiseshell, but other than that no way.

as far as sunglasses quality goes, you should check out randolph engineering. IME better quality than any of the luxe lines.

Yes of course I realize this, I've had corrective lenses of some sort for 15 years now.  I'm saying there is a noticeable difference in both frame and sunglass lens quality between made in Italy OP and currently made in Japan OP, (can't vouch for vintage but I would imagine they, like all glasses, get worn out with age) as well as a noticeable difference in frame quality between Warby Parker and made in Japan OP and Dita.  I'm also saying the TB branded frames made by Dita are not worth, to me, the $700+ that they are asking.

 

I have free frames (with shitty plastic prescription lenses) as beaters from both specsonthenet.com and zennioptical.com and I'd say they're about the same quality as Warby Parker, which is to say "disappointing, even for $free + shipping and handling."

we have a what did you eat for dinner thread
post #79011 of 117666
Yes! you noticed. Just so I can post a pic

And also a random post. So I can avoid the stampede of tourists, I took a bus down Michigan Ave.
The lady sitting across from me who looked normal and sane was picking on her nose like there were no people around her and then she ate it. WTF. And then a few minutes later a middle aged guy who also looked normal and sane asked a girl if it was ok to sit next to her and the girl replied yes and the guy gave her a bad look and went in front of the bus stared at this guy for like 2 minutes and decided to sit next to him.foo.gif

Yeah reminded me of snowman. When he first joined I was afraid he was going to take his parents' rifles and go shoot up his old highschool or something. Got rid of the glasses and got a good hair thing going, now look at him- now the only murdering of teens he'll be doing is with his cock! uhoh.gif

So glad I checked sf today (and everyday) love you guys laugh.gif

If its spoiler'd at the end of the fit, I don't find it to be a bad thing.

people have always posted lifestyle shit. maybe not in like 2007 when everyone was wearing regular ralphs and quick release belts with onitsuka tigers, but for the past few years definitely.

also tween: do you own warby parker frames? I really think the quality is much better than zenni optical shit. and OP is making stuff in italy now? for shame. i also have a pair of ndg-1 frames that i've never really worn that are MiJ and are from luxxotica OP. DITA has never impressed me.
