I compared the retail pair to the Gaffos pair and they're identical, even down to the polarized/photochromatic lenses, which would be hard to fake. Recommended.

I don't find $250 for the Persols at all suspicious as far as pricing goes... I've seen them for about that quite often. But $90 for Tom Ford aviators? That seems a bit suspect... don't know, just saying...

Anyone know if illesteva lenoards are polarized?
post #1519 of 1929
not sure how I feel about illesteva leonards...i got the ones daniel craig has the clear face with the tortoiseshell sides....def unique and no one else in boston should have these...which is important to me I cant stand it when people have the same eye ware as me...probably my biggest pet peeve.

I'm trying to find a new pair of sunglasses in matte black with black frames and I'm looking for something really rectangular / boxy. I looked through half this thread and came across these

Oliver Peoples
Bernardo Square Sunglasses/Black



and

Marc by Marc Retro Rectangle Sunglasses



That is the sort of look I want, but the Oliver's are more than I'm willing to pay (Looking at sub $200) and the Marc Jacobs don't come in a black/black.

If anyone knows something similar to these that is strictly black I would appreciate any ideas. I'm really struggling to find what I want.

Mosley Tribes is perfect for you, same makers as Oliver Peoples but marketed on a lower tier, same quality, but just at your pricepoint. Four styles on Zappos match the look your going for, stafford carden hillyard lyndel, i just like zappos cause its free shipping back and forth so you can try them on at home.

lyndel polarized at $180  is a pretty solid choice, ive seen them on people and they look great, my heads to big for them unfortunately

Is it a bad idea to buy persol 649's on Ebay? Are many counterfeit or not? Any recommended sellers?

Ehhhh don't like them.

Check Randolph Engineering, they make some nice American Made, somewhat cheaper Aviators....

Similar styles to Persol 714?
Used to like Wayfarers, but now that everyone has them... any alternatives?

I have a pair of 714 in 54mm but looking for something in 50-52, as they're a bit too big for my face. So if you want to trade or have a pair to sell, PM me! icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Anymore ideas of where to get more affordable flatbrow sunglasses. I cant buy of Zappos

Hi, I'm looking for sunglasses that have the same tilt as the rayban 2140 original wayfarer's. The slanted position the eyepieces have fits my face perfectly but i just don't like the style so much. I am more of a fan of the PERSOL styling.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated, thanks

Looking for exact replacement of sunglasses that were probably discontinued 15 years ago and which now rest on the bottom of Lake Mead after a ungainly dismount at very high speed from an overpowered and heavily modified SeaDoo.

 

Brand: ?

Model: Slim Jim, Slim Jims, Slim Jim's, or Slim Jimz

Shape: very small trapezoidal lens, just big enough to cover the eye and lids

Frame: gold metal, flattened wire

Temple piece: skull or bayonet with downward curve

Lens: color grey, and possible polycarbonate lens

Polarized: ?, maybe

Retail: >$100, Maybe $130 in 1997 dollars.

 

Last known retailer: Sunglasses Hut, Dana Point, California; now closed or relocated

 

Feel free to PM me with details of how and where to purchase.

 

 

Many thanks in advance!
