    don't know about Seraphin. but for PS, I believe their Japan-made frames are still considered good. But those are made in Italy is made out of the same factory as Prada and all other brands, which means quality isn't the best.

    Want to pick up a pair of Randolph P-3s to use as regular (non-sunglasses), prescription glasses.
    This should be fine, right?

    Does it matter if I pick up an older pair or do they specifically have to be these Rx ones:

    I'm assuming this is just a labelling/marketing difference and that all P-3 frames are of a similar build?

    You can easily remove the logo from the arms with a thin knife. I used a butter knife but an exacto will work. Just slide it under and twist lightly and it pops right off and leaves just a small metal dot that looks like it's part of the arm. Let me know if you want to see a photo.

    Hopefully someone can help. I'm about to buy some new glasses and i pretty much have it narrowed down to either Blackfin or Zero G. Just looking for a pair of decently made full frame titanium glasses. And that's the issue; I can't find any info as to who manufactures Zero G eyeglasses.-- other than " Designed in California and handcrafted in Japan". I've looked around for a while, and he mentions Masunaga quite a few times, but never actually says that they are the manufacturer. So if anyone has in info, please let me know...I'd appreciate any help.

    What is the standard on the size of glasses one should wear (in terms of total area of the face that it covers)?

    Common given advice is to match the width of your face. A bit bigger or smaller I think is okay. Lengthwise, it should sit above your cheeks and not sit on or dig into them and not swallow your eyebrows. Eyes should be centered in the lens are of both sides. It's still best to work with a good optician and a good collection.

    I have owned a pair of Markus T frames for several years. They are the TMI (nylon plastic?) super-light and comfortable. Unfortunately after 5 years I have broken the frame but no longer can i buy in Australia.

    If you know of a retail outlet please reply.
    Thanks

    I was at a local eyewear boutique and found some absolutely gorgeous Bevel sunglasses, pictured below. The model is called Sidecar. They are unfortunately $500, although I may end up folding and buying a pair in a few months. Does anyone know of a comparable less expensive alternative?

    Hugo Boss. Not the same quality but never similar look.

    The fit will be different. The ones on the top have pad arms so they will sit further from your face.

    What kind of frames are these? I've been trying to find out for the longest time. They're not Persols. Thanks in advance!

    I have OPs similar to those but the hinge isn't on the front of the face.

    Does anybody know if Mykitas are any less expensive in Berlin? I'm looking to get my third pair and have got my eyes on a couple different styles of their sunglasses, but I'm wondering if it would be best for me to wait until my trip to Berlin this summer to get another pair.
