I own half a dozen pairs and love them but they're not particularly more durable or well-made than other Luxxotica brands. I think my OPs are better made and prob more durable. Salt too.

I've had my pair (with meflecto system) for over five years. They are my only pair and I wear them a lot. They're fine.

I love my pair and wear them often. I have had a few others and the quality was good for the price I paid.

They will if they have the meflecto system (flexible parts).

there can be some quality control issues, but not a huge problem if you buy them from a luxottica-owned retailer.

i had a pair a few years ago (of an unfortunately discontinued style) where the lenses began to come away from the frame (not popping out, but on their way to doing so). went back to the retailer (sunglass hut) and got a replacement no questions asked. same thing began happening to the next pair. got another replacement. those were solid, but unforunately were lost. at that point the style had been discontinued.

would happily buy another pair if i could find one that suited me, though. the quality of the glass lenses is absolutely fantastic compared to other brands--everything looks better/sharper--particularly given how many have resorted to polycarbonate. the glass lenses also tend to be more scratch-resistant than polycarbonate, obviously.

I have two pair I bought in 1994 and added prescription lenses--still going strong on the second set of lenses. In fact, it's about time for a third set...

Persol is like the Rolls Royce of sunglasses in my eyes (if there ever was such a ranking system). And its not as played out as Ray Bans, and its understated luxury since many people won't recognize the Persol logo. Quality seems to be very well made. My frames are thin but heavy. Plus I got my pair from the trade forum for mega cheap, can't complain
