They make AMAZING pieces and are far better quality than Oliver Peoples, which has really gone down hill since they sold. Bear in mind I love Oliver Peoples, I own 4 pair, however everything that Oliver Peoples was 3-5 years ago is what these guys are now. They are pricier than Oliver Peoples and somewhat harder to find, but in my opinion it makes more exclusive. Slim chance you’ll see 100 other guys wearing the same pair as you.

I have the Voyeur with the Horn tips and Neptune Polarized lenses.

I was actually just looking at a pair of frames from them today. Really beautiful in person, great construction and very tasteful detailing. No visible branding or gross logos, like 90% of frames these days.

I saw some of this brand the other day. A lot of it was very gaudy or more precisely overly large in that douchey way, mainly the women's styles. However they had some fantastic takes on men's aviators. Just slight variations in shape and scale that were really really nice. EDIT: "Earhart" was the model that stuck in my head, but at $440 I can live without them. A search of barton perreira also brings up more hits for Entourage then actual retailers or legit links so I am sure you are paying $100+ just for that tie in right there. I guess it worked for Oliver Peoples and Burn Notice though so why not....

Agree.

All the Mosely Tribe and Oliver Peoples apologists must recognize that the founders of Barton Perrira are two former OP exec’s who left because they didn’t like the direction the company was going in. The guys at BP specifically are going for an understated not too “blingy” or flashy look. Sure some of their styles are a bit different and might not be for everyone, but TRUST me when I saw that they are made with as good if not far better detail, craftsmanship, and care than Oliver Peoples and Mosley tribes.

Gilt Group has had Mosley Tribes for a good price in the past. Not sure if the Enforcer was included in their sale, though.
