Sunglasses MEGATHREAD - all sunglass questions here please - Page 81

post #1201 of 1988
I just got these sick Paul smith wayfarers off gilt for 129 I've been looking for some square wayfarers like that for a while.

i am looking for a pair of sunglasses with the following features.

plastic frame
rounded shape
keyhole bridge
light tortoise with high contrast (i've seen it called tokyo tortoise)
green lenses

i am looking at moscot lemtosh and han timeless. blonde and amber or army.
i prefer the shape and chunkyness of lemtosh but the frame color of han is quite spot on.
han lenses seem to be grey or brown and the sidebars are too thin.

do you have any other suggestions?
prefferably a bit cheaper than the two options i have found.
foldable could be cool too.

Not sure you'll like the price, but check out Oliver Peoples Vintage collection they just re-released. One of their frames the O'malley is a classic round frame, comes in various tortoise colorways and they have a bunch of vintage lenses (green, purple, red, etc) that they could throw in for you.

Just picked this pair of Fendis up at a nearby Saks Off-5th for $80. They were originally $225 when they came out, can anyone tell me when they were released?

where could i find a pair of oliver peoples ndg in the "storm" color? (other than scouring ebay and forum sales threads) or is it pretty much impossible now?
post #1209 of 1988
go to an official retailer of OP and ask them if they can order it in for you. OP might be still making them.

post #1212 of 1988

Persol 714. They seem to be pretty much exactly what you are describing. They retail for like 300, but you can find them on the bay or B&S for cheaper.

Lots of people sell them because they are relatively big and don't work for all faces.

i considered those, but they are way too big for me. i am looking for something completely different. way smaller. panto i think the style is called. found these: still too expensive tho.

Those are plastic but not Wayfarers. Interesting color though. Unique for sure.
