post #1381 of 1988

I think sunglasses are one of the hardest things to buy online. For one, the display picture colors are usually only a small approximation of what the same exact pair of shades will look like in real life. And that's ignoring the whole issue of how it fits on your face

I'm sure this horse has been beaten to death somewhere else, but what are some other frames with a similar structure to Clubmasters? Price is not a huge concern.

without a doubt. gotta find some kinds you like and find a store to try them on as much as possible. only bought one pair (of my many shades) online without ever trying them on and just got lucky that they fit well and looked good. (Oliver People's "Marley" in olive green)

what's up with this company? they have interesting stuff, but why no prices? do they only sell to retailers or what?
post #1384 of 1988
they sell to individuals. prices may vary depending on the frame, but my pair of sidewinders were $99 for the frames and $60 for the lenses. you have to email them to place an order, they'll help you get an idea of your size and send three or four matches of frames and temples to try before purchasing. I don't see myself ever owning another brand of eyewear.

Really like these. Seems like the key nose bridge are in a rush at this moment. Used to dislike...now I love it.

Yeah, the bridge is pretty subtle on these too. steve mcqueen persols or the oliver peoples ones are a bit too strong for me.

Yesterday I received as a gift some Persol's 714 tortoise frame-green lenses in size 52. Still haven't quite decided whether keeping or re-selling them. Even though they don' slice down my nose, I think I prefer smaller shades...How big are these Ray Ban compared to Persol 649/714?

54mm lens on the rb. seems smaller to me though, so not really sure..

I'm looking for a pair of polarized aviators. I found the following Ray Bans, not only are they polarized, but also it's gradient polarization, so it's easier to wear in different levels of light.

Optically, what's comparable to the Ray Bans? Is there anyone else with a gradient polarizied lens? Thanks!
post #1391 of 1988
those aren't ray bans. but to answer your question, i think any lense lab should be able to install gradient tinted, polarized lenses in any frames you bring them.

These are Maui Jims...I have read many times that Maui Jim makes some of the best lenses around.

Persol... and better than RB's IMO.

Sorry, the Ray-Ban reference is a typo - meant to say Maui Jim!
