Looking for info. on Robb Report "Best of" or "Best of the Best" listings. Some references on web but true listings, if accessible at all, appear to be by fee only and I can't rationale paying. Even our large public libraries here don't seem to carry these issues; they too can't rationalize paying the subscriptions. So - I'm interested in many lists but right now "best" or "best of the best" eyewear. I've seen claims of "on for three years," etc. but want to check out the actual lists. Is eyewear under "fashion" or "accessories?" I think there just was a "Best of" issue but I can't even look at it on the magazine stand in customer-friendly bookstores, which allow heavy browsing, because it's a supplementary issue and Robb encases both issues in plastic which is supposed to be reserved for the buyer. Is there a "best" listing of eyewear every year or only some years? Or no actual listing and only paragraphs about some writer's favorites? If there's no "best of the best" listing of eyewear every year than no optician has any business claiming a company or designer is listed "three years in a row." I don't know of a "best of the best" list and I don't think it would be that accurate. I think what you are looking for is Silmo D'or. It is the most prestigious award for eyewear design and innovation. I think a "best of the best" would be highly subjective whereas the Silmo D'or has certain aspects/characteristics that it must reach and it is judged by a board of persons who specialize in the field as opposed to a magazine editor. I just bought the new Robb Report as well so I will check to see if it is in there.
