1. there are inexpensive "Mykita inspired" frames that are made in China, but not nearly as good quality.
2. Lindberg has a new line of metal frames that look like that.
3. Hugo Boss has a line called "Hugo". It still has screws and hinges but it has the big metal (thin) design.

I found some eyeglasses by Morgenthal Frederics that I really like. I can't find an image online since their website is down, but they're basically a modern version of these with a straighter and less 'nerdy' look. Can anyone comment on the quality of Morgenthal Frederics?

I can't really go higher than 125-150 USD for frames.

How much do you plan on spending on lenses? What is the total value?

If you are looking for Mykita-esque frames, try to find a small store that sells inexpensive frames. Sorry to break it to you but if you are looking for the quality, youre going to have to increase your budget.

City Connection, do you anything about this company? They have some line called GEEK EYEWEAR... obv the worst name possible, but the frames look decent. No idea what the pricing is like though.

First time I have heard or seen them. They could be a big company but judging by their website they are making knapsacs and stuff too. I dont see their products being all that good. Usually companies that dont specialize in eyewear arent all that good. Unless they are made/distributed by larger companies.....

I think I'd be willing to stretch my budget upwards to the Moscot Nebb (which I like more) but I don't know where I'd be able to buy them in Chicago. I won't buy frames I haven't tried on, you know?

Thats kidna like the Wayfarer look, Check out Salt (probably more than you want to spend), Paul Frank (reasonably priced), Hackett Bespoke (within price range) and the list continues. If you want something relatively inexpensive and decent quality take a look at Paul Frank. They are made in China but under supervision.

I am going to get the Moscot version of these in black with prescription sunglass lenses at some point.

Get ByWP, it is about 25% cheaper than Mykita and is also made in Germany.

I finally found a pair that I really love. These are from LA Eyeworks - absolutely fantastic store, great staff too (thanks to yfyf for the rec). A place called City of Angels Eyewear had some fantastic stuff too.

Those look good on you.

How much do frames at LA EYEWORKS usually run for?
post #494 of 680
Seemed like most were 2 to 300.

I asked in quick questions, but I thought i'd ask here since there seems to be a lot of eyeglass knowledge in this thread.
