In the market for a pair of Persol 2869s, but can't seem to find them anywhere for less than like 250. Anyone selling or know where to find em cheap?

what color are you looking for? there's a havana/green pair on the bay for $185 shipped, not sure if the seller is legit as I just did a quick search. I just got some 714s on there shipped for $140 from another seller, came yesterday and they're legit.

Yea i saw those on ebay. I was considering picking those up but ideally i was looking for tortoise frames and i dont know if im feeling the green lenses either. For 185 i think im gonna pass.

Does Persol not make these anymore? I see other models like the 649 and 714 everywhere, but these are hard to fimd, especially at a discount. Too bad the 649/714s don't fit my face.

Found a pair of Oliver Peoples sunglasses I really like (Maceo, smoke). Any recommendations on an online retailer I should check out for no tax/discount?

I was in the same boat... looking to replace my old Persols which got stolen... I had only one pic of me wearing them& didn't know the model number. After much research I found out that that (and many others) model had been discontinued. Apparently Persol does this often...while other models continue. Furthermore, they also release models and styles differently around the world according to local markets, tastes, face/nose shapes etc. Ultimately, I found a local retailer, tried on a bunch and found two I liked... #2747 black/polarized, and #2978 tortoise/polarized. I bought from "Frames Direct" which has been having buy one get one 50% off sale. All told, compared to my local retailer's price, the online sale price was effectively buy one get one free...not bad for Persols IMO. I love them as well as my O.Peoples & Ray Bans.

btw... I would recommend finding somewhere to really try on a bunch first... even the same models come in different measurements for lens, bridge& temple length so maybe you can still find a cool one (or two!) that fits!! good luck

^ Thanks, KN. I've been noticing that there seem to be hundreds of models of Persol in different models, sizes and with alternative style #'s. It's making it pretty tough to buy a pair...

Speaking of alternative style #'s, these shades from Barney's look like the 2869's but have a different style #.

http://www.barneys.com/Round-Sunglas...efault,pd.html

Can any Persol experts out there tell me whether they are in fact the same? If so, atleast I can try them on before pulling the trigger on a pair of shades I've never actually seen in person.

^ dmass1... no shit tell me about it! it took me a couple weeks to figure out these damn things... it's like the McQueens which are 0714 but fold up, whereas the 0649 is the same but do not fold. Those on the Barney's page do look like 2869, but check the Persol website and compare 2994 and 2931. They're similar and I can't quite tell the whole lens shape from the angle of the pic or quite read the actual style number on the frame in the zoom. That Barney's page has its own style number so I can't help you there...you'd have to call them and ask to be sure.

But really the best I can recommened is to get your hands on some and try 'em on. I tried 20-30 pairs over a couple weeks in Asia and the US before I nailed it down and was able to order them confidently. Just b/c a 54/16/140 fits great in one model/style doesn't mean it will in another... they are wildly inconsistent. Hope that helps....

Kopped a pair of Super Basic Tone-on-Tone in brown. Like them a lot. My first wayfarer-frame. Need to replace the Tom Ford Charles that I lost last summer my favorite aviator frame... have to shell out again to buy another pair.
