persols are kind of junky IME. if you want designer-level stuff, check out mykita, SALT and DITA.

meh, they are not crappy, and they have a lot of great designs. plus they can be had relatively cheap, and bene said he does not want to break the bank on glasses.

i like a lot of salt's designs, but no one near my area stocks them :\ plus i don't want to pay that much for my third pair of glasses hahaha... no one seems to want to proxy them for a reasonable fee during their warehouse sale. some dude was charging a 60 dollar proxy fee when the frames were supposed to go for around that much -_-;

Yeah I picked up a pair of salt glasses and bevel sunglasses when I was in NYC. Not that many good stockists in norcal I'm aware of (Share secret spots if anyone has them).

Sunglasses/glasses are something I genuinely need to try on in person to figure out if it works for my face or not.. haven't really figured out a formula yet. Tried on a bunch while in new york and the randomest shit would look good/terrible without much rhyme or reason.

Asking SAs what works with my face type didn't seem to really ring any bells too, but maybe I just went to the wrong places.

i said junky, and they are kind of junky. if you're paying for a premium product (and with persols, you will be), then you might as well pay for something with good detailing and construction. i still think glasses prices in general are very inflated.

idk, i thought some of the brands you mentioned are like 500-700. persols are like 250-300ish at full retail, and easily had cheaper.

persols used to be really good a long time ago

anything to do with being bought by luxottica?
