Yes. A little too ornate for my liking, but I would love to get my hands on them just because of how absurdly grand they look.
Agreed. I appreciate the details and craftsmanship but its a little too busy for my taste. Reminds me of Chrome Hearts.

Does anyone have experience with any of the District Vision sunglasses? I know they're meant for runners. I occasionally run outside but mostly wanted something different with a sporty vibe that was still fashionable. Looking at the Karhu
Just my 2c here.

I owned a pair of keiichi standards and they lasted about 3 years of training and ultramarathons where I wasn't babying them around. The arms ended up snapping as I was taking it off after a training run.

I also own a number of their other models and reckon the rose lens is their best, they're as much of a statement about how serious you are about running as wearing saloman or hoka shoes!

That is one suave, badass older guy look.
I hope I hold up that well.
But a bolo tie? That's the first sign of dementia...

Anyone tried Archibald London? How’s the quality? They’re right in my price bracket and made in japan of acetate according to the web page.I could go up maybe a hundred but that’s it. Any other brands I should check out?

Assuming the best acetate frames are JMM, who is the 2nd best for acetate?

I have True Vintage Revival frames ( TVR ), handmade Japan, most @ $475. If you go to their website, EVERYTHING is sold out. Like JMM, once a line/style sells out, they're gone for good. But if you email them, they'll send an e-brochure of new stuff dropping.

Great addition!

id add matsuda
I love Matsuda sunglasses and they do make acetate frames. That said, their emphasis appears to be titanium frames and, IMHO, it is their titanium offerings that distinguish the company. Based on the same logic, I probably should not have included Mykita on my list, as their bread and butter is also titanium.

Im not sure about their sunglasses but i think the glasses are more acetate emphasis with titanium cores. or with temples consisting of precious metals like sterling silver in their higher end designs. I was just recently looking for new glasses and went thru their catalog lol.
