FS: TOM FORD Eyeglasses TF5040 B5 52-20-140 (NWT)  

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
A buyer on SF has backed out of purchasing these Tom Ford frames at the last moment (those in authority, feel free to check my PMs to verify), so I am posting the frames here with some new suggestions to interested parties. - You need a medium to larger face for these to look good and not overwhelming (incidentally my reason for selling these: my face is too small) - These frames have a bolder look than standard boxy frames, and its inspiration hails from the 1950s. - Colin Firth does them justice in the movie A Single Man, and so do some Asian actors. If you feel like you have a face type like theirs (pictures below), these frames should suit you well. - The TF5040s have been discontinued by the manufacturer and are sold out in mostly places online and retail. Resemblance to the pair worn by Colin Firth in A Single Man likely contributed to its popularity. - Standard measurements are 52-20-140. - Asking is 290. On Colin's face (of course without the t metal insert): On some Asian actors' faces: On the the model's face:

Colin Firth is not wearing Tom Ford eyeglasses in the movie. He found those glasses in a props bin. They're vintage Nalco #44 frames from the 60s. TF5178 is modeled after Nalco #44. The one you're selling is similar, but not the same. Regardless, nice glasses.

Can I point out that this was from July 2010?

It's dawn of the dead this week...

The flurry of activities some 8 months after this was posted is crazy.

Musicguy is right, it seems this is not the pair worn by Colin Firth in A Single Man.

The only pair of TF5040s, unfortunately, is now worn by me... and I probably won't part (its worn, after all) unless something quite interesting is being offered. Cheers!
