Help deciding between these two Persol's.

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
Hey!

I'm looking to buy my first pair of Persol's. I'm thinking between either one of these.


175

$235 but doesn't fold.


175

$360, pricey and fold

Do you guys think its worth dropping the extra cash for the $360? I tried both on and I thought they were both great. I just cant decideeee!

Whats your take guys?

I don't really buy into the necessity of folding. Are they supposed to fit in your jacket? Mine are in the case when I am not wearing them.

Exactly. I struggle to see the benefit of folding glasses up so small. I have loads of sunglasses and when I take them off they go in the chest pocket of my jacket or if I'm not wearing a jacket, I fold an arm into the front of my shirt or whatever. I have never thought 'I wish I could fold them in half again and stuff them into my jeans'.

I have a pair of folding Persols.
Not these models. Reading glasses.
Very convenient. Since I do not wear glasses,
I am not used to carrying glasses all the time.
These readers ae very compact.
