stylish eye glasses - Page 44

Great, thx for the suggestions.

Of the frames above, I prefer the Warbys. I generally like the clean look of frames without decorative inserts on the corners. I read somewhere that the quality of Warby Parker isn't great in terms of durability but these might be a good option to wear at home around my 1 year old (tends to reach for glasses).

Any suggestions for frames of higher quality for the office?

I've heard good things about Dita:

I like those a lot.

Can't find them on Dita's site. The closest seems to be the 'Elan' but they aren't offering it in the color pictured above. Was that a pre-2011 model?

Trapp, there's a place that has the Warby Parkers to try on Divisadero, I forget the name but it's near The Independent. I love what the brand is about and does, but their product is an example of why I think certain glasses carry a price premium, even Luxotica ones. It's not bad, but unless I really couldn't afford to, I'd go elsewhere for glasses.

See(if it's the shop I'm thinking of) looks to have a great selection. If they have what you're looking for, I recommend Glitter Optics in Union Square by Barneys. A little pricey, but they're fast(glasses done in like fifteen minutes), friendly and they were good with ordering a pair I wanted cheaper than other local shops and with a quicker turn around time. Also got a Yelp discount and wasn't charged tax.

I am ordering two pairs of Warby Parkers this week, Winston and Preston. I can post pictures if anyone is interested. These are only my second pair of glasses (last pair were basic prada) so I do not have much experience to compare with here. However, for the price and my insurance I am going to give the Parkers a go.

The Prestons are nice, I get compliments on mine all the time.

nineohtoo, thx for that. I'll definately check out Glitter Optics this week. They have the most consistently positive Yelp reviews I've ever seen.

hi guys..
i recently bought a lanceR Oliver Peoples in 50, they fit well and are comfortable. i would like to get a pair of sunglasses that "fit", perhaps from OP as well. my question is - if i wear a 50 in eyeglasses should i go for a similar size frame in sunglasses? or larger??...

a girl at adam simmonds told me i could get away with larger sunglass frames as the eyes do not necessarily have to be bang on within the frame if the leses dark..not sure if this is true, or not..

anyways, i was considering a lighter lense, so with this in mind should i focus on fit? i like the look of the OP Hollis someone posted in here...and they are a size 50 i believe, many other OP sunglasses seem to be 56 ish

my only other idea was to go for an OP eyeglass frame thats a bit deep then my current eyeglass frame and get sunglass lenses put in, any thoughts on this? sorry for all the questions!

For future Bay Area readers, this place is called The Perish Trust, located at 728 Divisadero near Grove. They seem to be less a dedicated eyewear business than an all-around vintage / artisan / boutique-type thing. They do have Warby Parkers so I'll swing by Wed to have a look. Will post an update on other eyewear selection if it seems worthwhile.

No, they're on there under "Camden", DRX-2027C.

For those of you who order your glasses online, how hard is it to find out what your pupillary distance is? My prescription doesn't list it and I'm not sure if I can walk into an opticians and ask them to do it for me.

Really enjoying this thread, thanks to all who have posted pics of their frames...

 

Anyone have suggestions for frames/optical in the Orlando/Central Florida area?

Just got me these ones :

My law is : choose glasses which basically follow your eyebrow line.

Not sure how many are following this thread. Please redirect me if there is a better place to post this.

Need to get my first pair of glasses. I know nothing, but what I've found is that a sort of Boston-ish shape, and something with thinner frames in a lighter color work well for me.

I'm in Japan. There are tons of great shops, but I find they are very expensive and also that the kind of frames I noted above are rather rare. In particular, most stores primarily stock quite thick frames, and thinner frames are a bit of a rare species. I found some Beausoleils--more specifically their "012-xxxx" models--in a nice light green (looks greyish) that work pretty well, but are almost $500 out the door. Here is a pic of a Beausoleil 012 in a darker model.

This brand seemed nice to me. Any thoughts? I do not want to spend $500 at all, but I am tempted to just because they are the best that I have found so far. And I quite liked the very natural green.

Where should I look for similar, but less expensive options, if possible, in Tokyo?
