    CC, can we use you for lenses (I'm in the US, not Canada) for frames we already have? I am having a very hard time finding a way to get lenses replaced that doesn't rape me to death for money.

    I like them. Kio Yamato has a pair that looks like that that I really like. I was thinking of getting some for myself.

    Safilo makes Armani, Boss, Banana Republic, Dior, Carrera, Diesel, Gucci and so on...
    They are one of the top 3 manufactures and distributors in the world. Their quality is average. Nothing special but they carry all the big names, so they cant be ignored.

    Porsche design is good quality. Their style isnt the greatest, but the quality is good and the frames are solid. They do come at a price though. I dont know if I would call them exclusive but they are rare and hard to find because not all that many places will carry them.

    Hi CityConnection,

    Can you ID these unisex glasses for me?



    I thought they were Moscot Miltzen, but after a closer look they appear to be bigger, with fatter arms and different fixing screws.

    Any ideas?

    (P.S. To the mods - I posted this a while ago in the Ask a Question thread but didn't get a reply; hope it's OK to repost here).

    Im not 100% but there are a few Lafont frames that look like it. Lafont Theoreme and Lafont Aristo.

    As well, there was someone asking about a frame that was round with NO nose pad arms and gold color. Try looking up Lafont Collection Titane Arman. I think it might be what you are looking for.
