Persol Sunglasses YEAH or NAY - Page 4

post #46 of 51
Persol makes the 649/714 in larger size than 54. I believe they're still making 56, but you won't find them at Sunglasses Hut, though they can be found at some B&Ms if you go to the right places. When they were Ratti they made 58s as well, those and 56s show up on ebay all the time.

I must have a cone head because I only take a 56 hat size, but need large sunnies.

Hi my name is Noah and I have a glass fetish.

Here's my latest purchase. Persol 2388

Do they work for you?

I have a pair of the 2449-S model sunglasses. They look great but they are constantly sliding down my face. I've had them adjusted at 3 different optometrists offices and they still just don't fit my face very well for some reason. I also have a pair of Randolph Engineering aviators that fit like a glove. I still try to wear the Persols because I like the look of them. I just don't wear them when it is particularly hot outside or if I am doing anything remotely active.

If you can, try to find a pair of Maui Jim glasses you like. They're awesome.

Yes, get the classic acetate frames. They hold up like nothing else.
