    Hard to tell but he does wear them a bit on the smaller side. Most of the pics I have seen on here and the other forums usually wear the lemtosh a size up. I have the lemtosh and I went with the size corresponding to my Pupillary distance. Best bet is to e-mail and/or call Moscot

    Hi City Connection

    Just checking whether 500 usd for Toki Collection from masunaga is warranted?

    hi CC,
    i was told by my eye doctor that i'm really sensitive to sunlight and should wear sunglasses. i've only had one pair of frames - normal eyeglasses. i think i have a general idea for what suits my face, though not precise. could you give me an idea of whether or not these mykita sunglasses would be a good fit for my face (pictures of it below) or not?

    i would get the black pair if it matters. i don't know much about mykita but they seem like they're probably decently nice. do you have an opinion?

    thanks very much for all this.

    One side of my glasses is closer to my face than the other, i think it's because my glasses are not big enough and the arm is being pushed by my head. Is there anything I can do to fix this?

    not sure if this is the right thread, but do any members know where i could find vintage eyeglass frames in london. i have OPs i wear day in day out, but really craving to have a couple different pairs to wear, perhaps something quite unique...

    secondly, which brands would be good to look at and from which era? - would like to have good quality and not too chunky design, i prefer the smaller size frames as i have a relatively small face.
    thanks!

    What is the quality of SALT sunglasses? Are they worth the price? Any places to get them for a good price?

    Anyone know where I might find something like Warby Parker's Winston frames but smaller?

    [​IMG]

    I like the shape of them (in either the fade color there, or just black) but they were just too big on and seemed to have too much space underneath my eye. I checked Moscot and Oliver Peoples and was surprised to find there wasn't anything all that close.

    SALT Optics Ollie.
    Similar dimensions with regards to lens width and bridge but less clunky/more refined:

    Can someone recommend an opto shop in the DC area that encapsulates what is found on this thread? I have a bigger head/face and need step up my game in the eyeglasses area. Thanks.

    What frames are these...and as a side note can any pair of glasses be made into sunglass, if yes who would be able to do this if the company doesnt offer them in sunglasses.

    since it's Giovanni Ribisi, I'm going to guess they're Barton Perreira

    Thanks checking them out now...dont look cheap either! Any idea where they retail? This is something I would need to try on first for sure.

    Im liking the darwin in golden honey with green lenses...might have to try moscot, if I recall they offer something similar in the 260 range.

    Yellow frames are in...shia wearing what I think are persol 3007s. I wish these were made in sunglasses, though I guess I could do the clip on.

    BP is usually in the $325-$350 range and yes never buy eyewear without trying them on first!!
