    I purchased a pair of these when looking for my second pair of eyeglasses. For the sale price the quality is good, but don't buy them at MSRP, they're not comparable to brands at that price point (SALT, Oliver Peoples, Moscot, Barton Perreira). I'd say the quality is on par with Warby Parker. Perhaps it was a one off, but on mine the rivets were not set perfectly, and finishing wasn't great. Ultimately I ended up returning them.

    ^^ Those look like Tart Arnels

    I had a pair that lasted me about six years. Excellent frames, very well made. But not produced anymore. You can still find deadstocks on eBay, but they're pricey, somewhere around 450-500 when I bought mine.

    Honestly, I wish I know the answer to your question, but I just don't, seriously.

    Honestly can't say I've experienced this from the 2 pairs I own. The acetate is rich and glossy, the rivets are shaped quite nicely and arms secured with strong 7 barrel hinges.

    I'm looking for recommendations for a B&M store in NYC where I can get to try a good selection of Maui Jim sunglasses and also get expert guidance on fit/style/optical protection.
    I searched this thread for this info but I couldn't find it...sorry if I missed it.
    Thanks a lot.

    I was at a shop about to buy these - but the stems aren't long enough for my head... It was a real shame.

    Sorry to hear about that. Lucky for me, the frame is perfectly fit for my head and face.

    Guys are the Moscot Lemtosh sunglasses worth the price? Any knockoffs or similar style in a different brand that are almost as good but cost less?

    Definitely not. The frame looks and feels cheaply made when you look at it in person.
