Where can you find real Oliver Peoples for half price? Best I can find is the 20% deals from optical shop of aspen.

I'm looking for a very specific pair of Oliver People's Aero 54. They retail for $450 w/o prescription & most places only carry Aero 57 so I'd have to order them. Had a friend try to buy OP online and they were fakes. Really good fake but the lenses were not authentic OP polarized lenses. Someone who doesn't know OP well would've been fooled by them. Thanks for any help in a reputable place to order OP for half off.

I know that the sportier Oakley's are a no-no with suits, however, what about:

 

Oakley Garage Rock (black or woodgrain frame)  http://www.oakley.com/products/7022/26703

 

Oakley Halbrook (rootbeer)  http://www.oakley.com/products/6498/23991

 

Oakley Plaintiff Squared (black or brown chrome)  http://www.oakley.com/products/7144/27193

 

 

I'm thinking the Plaintiff Squared is the safest bet?

Can anyone help me identify these sunglasses? They are not RayBans. The photo was taken in 2011, of James Blake at a music festival in Barcelona. I've scoured the design sunglasses across many brands but could not ID them.



thanks!

First pair I grabbed at a boutique in my hometown for near 50%... 2nd pair I got on Bluefly (although this was over a year ago and I now refuse to buy anything from them) for $85, and I've often seen them at Nordstrom's on sale during Summer Sale or Anniversary sale pretty cheap. Also have seen tons of OP and Persol at over 50% off at Saks Off Fifth. There are plently of places to get them discounted if you just look around.

1st pair are hideous... 2nd meh, completely unremarkable... 3rd are the least offensive, but beg the question why would you pay $200 for a pair of Oakley's??

Randolph Engineering Aviator or American Optical Original Pilot?

I ordered both and kept the RE aviator as the AO sunglasses I received appeared to be of relatively inferior construction and quality.

Anyone have experience with Shauns Shades?  I'm looking at this pair and they seem decent and offer a cool buy one give one program.  Thoughts?

Anyone have any recs for someone with a huge head? The Maui Jim Ho'okipas that I wear for running fit nicely at 63/17, and the Sandalwoods I had a while ago were a little snug at 64/14. I'd like to get something nicer but am having trouble finding anything that looks like it'll fit. Am I reading too much into the lens measurements?

As far as style goes, I like the Goodwin from Salt Optics and the Mitchell, Marshall, and Brasco from Barton Perreira a lot. Pretty much an aviator style with an acetate frame. Lens/frame colorways that pop are always a plus too, definitely willing to get a little adventurous.

I found a pair of Mosley Tribes that look like they'll fit, but I'd like to avoid Luxxotica if possible. Thanks for the help --

They look like luxxotica shades. Should be fine.
