So you are on the right track.
Lafont makes a ton of glasses in this style. You just need to figure out if you want a more subtle pair (O'Riley) or something bolder (Sheldrake). Actually, I just tried on the Sheldrake a few days ago, it's a cool pair, a little on the heavy side, but nice.
Many thanks for your reply.
I've tried the Paul Smith Morse in a local shop.
The sample came in a very beautiful brown/teal blue dual plates finish. I don't know if they're still available in this color 'cause I can only find oak/midnight blue in PS brand book.
Comfort was good.
As you suggested, the keyhole bridge is a pretty good thing when you have a big broken noise. Plus, it adds an interesting vintage touch.
By the way, the lens size* seemed a bit narrow on my face. I'm sure they would works much better with a few more millimeters.
(*PS brand book says 46mm, but the sample I tried was 48mm, maybe from the old collection)
OP O'Riley or Sheldrake ?
Unfortunately, my retailer doesn't have these in stock, so I would have to order...
