    City,

    While on the subject, I bought some Prada shades a) because they fit well b) and they were kind of fun. While I stipulate that they are somewhat douchey, I had a local shop put in new polarized lenses.

    I guess my question is, how are these frames from a quality standpoint?

    Prada eyewear is decent. I would put them in the middle of the quality chain. There are tons that are made much better and there are some that are made much better as well. They are made better than most of the "name brands" that the larger companies carry but definitely not to the same caliber as small independent manufacturers. Prada has good quality control but not great. At the end of the day they are still Lux frames. Most people won't see their flaws, but their logos are never on perfectly with a bit of glue sticking out, or the crystals are a bit off (mind you they are put in my hand), or their temples and front won't line up perfectly. They are better than most large names though.

    Depends how bad it is bent, but usually if you take it to where you got it, they will heat it and re-adjust it.

    I looked through the thread, and you previously mentioned that you didn't know who manufactured Robert Geller frames. I willing to do the research to find out, but I was wondering if you might be able to point me in a direction. A google search didn't really yield anything, unfortunately.

    Thanks for all your effort, this thread is a fantatic resource.

    It looks like Zac Ephron. And the probably unofficial name for that style is Terminator sunglasses. They might be Gargoyles brand.

    Hey, I'm interested in getting a pair of Gellers too. Where did you get them and can you tell me the width of the frames? Is it really a 48? Thanks!
