    I personally don't mind the logo. It gives a subtle accent. The build quality of a real Ray-ban are much better than the knock offs though. [​IMG]

    Depends upon which knock offs you buy. Ray Ban is owned and made by Luxotica, who also make quite a number of other brands as well.

    It took me years to find a pair that I felt worked with my face and these Cartier did it for me. I got them about 5 years ago and I still love them. They have some nice details to them--18K, Bobinga wood, but it is how they look on me and feel with longterm use that I cared about.

    I remember loving these but never bought them. Were they made by Bvlgari? How do they stay on your face? Anyway, for now I am happy with my Oakley Whisker Sunglasses for now and will upgrade later.

    Probably sit on your face fine lounging on the beach, but would fall right off in the sword fight that he's likely to be engaging in.

    Thinking about the foldable RLPL. Do those glasses come with a case to store when folded?

    Regards.


    RL and sunglass hut sold them with an excellent small case. I almost never see it in the ebay sales though.

    Very tasteful. I can't picture them well with your face; a fit picture is required

    I've really come around to that show lately - very engaging

    I have some ray bans I don't wear so much, and some randolph crew chiefs that I love but with were just slightly bigger.

    For people considering buying the RE, if you follow their fit advice, you'll get something that fits your eye socket, which might be smaller then you expect, given most aviators are oversized. The crew chief only come in one size anyway.

    I considered going for the concorde's, but I don't think the style suits me. I may get some aviators from them at some point.

    The quality and looks in person significantly exceed ray ban (for less money as well). I was never unhappy with ray ban, but there's no way I'd get ray ban aviators over RE.

    At some point I'd like to get persol's or similar.

    These are great. Thinking between these and the Persol 2931.
