I can't actually see the picture at work, but if they're the squared aviators there's a good chance that they could be Randolph Engineering, too. AO and RE make virtually the same model; I have the RE version that is supposed to be slightly higher quality. AO came first, became standard issue to the USAF, and were worn on the moon. A former employee started RE, believing he could improve on the construction. The RE version has since become USAF standard issue.

Hello,

 

Selima Optiques

 

My first impression I was going to say about this sunglasses is that it's too over-price.

 

Here is what it looks like:

Worn by Ryan Gosling: https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/736x/8a/7f/f8/8a7ff822bc6f5daada077ce826c8c95e.jpg

 

They are all the same.

 

The design is a bit of a Persol but the bridge is something similar to a wayfarer. I've been trying to find this design in tortoise as long as its not from Selima Optique which is like I said too over-price.

 

Or if you have this exact item and its for sale for a cheaper price, lemme know in this thread.

 

The design as you notice is that lower portion is a bit round, it's different than the Ray-Ban wayfarer.

 

Someone here knows something similar?

 

I've been trying to dig the entire web, trying to send messages to Ray-Ban, Persols, Vans, etc. and maybe I get some luck and some answer from them but I doubt it they have this design.

 

Selima Optiques from what I heard is not a manufacturer but rather they branch their products and successful with it.

 

Thanks!

Hi, 

i have a pair of Ray Bans Cats 3000, the Survivor's collection W1513 in Matte Black from the 90's. 

 

They are in mint condition with all tags, labels, stickers and case and are never used. 

 

I've heard they were a limited release.

 

I was curious as to how much they are worth?

 

Thanks
