    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Scratch coating- yes
    Poly- NO
    AR coating: yes

    Do not get Poly. You can go back and see in this thread that I have talked about this MANY times. Polycarbonate is NOT the way to go. The other 2 coatings are a MUST.

    I do not have any long term experience with the brand. I have seen them at trade shows and picked up the frames but I don't know much about the long term quality of them. Sorry.

    I don't know much about their suggested retail so I can't say much about the pricing. The lenses for the your rx, I would suggest Trivex in a semi rimless or 1.56 in any full frame (maybe even a semi rimless). If you get the frames you can always take the frame to an optical to get the script filled.

    I recall someone asking about the Anglo-American frames. I may be getting a link to come Anglo American frames soon. I picked up a few pairs to inspect and it looked like the quality was good. They say that they are handmade in England and the prices are fair. I may be able to get you guys some at a fair price (obviously less than suggested retail) if you guys are interested.

    Well, I picked u the LGR's and they are pretty fantastic so far, and they are next to indestructible which is a plus.

    Hey all,

    Could anyone place what brand of eyeglasses Ryan Gosling seems to be wearing nowadays?

    They seem to be a standard semi-round shape, keyhole bridge, tortoiseshell, with no brand markings to be found. The man looks sharp.

    The closest I could find is the Persol 3007 model, very similar shape, but with the trademark persol chrome arrow - something I'm not too keen on.

    Thank you!

    Hey!

    What are the best places to go for quality frames (including more obscure and boutique labels) in New York?
    Thanks

    It's a good thing I checked this thread because I had forgotten about it. I had bought a new pair of glasses two weeks ago but ended up returning them. So, the search continues.

    If Poly is not the way to go, what would you recommend? I'm sorry if this is something that's been discussed here already, but there is just way too many posts in this thread to wade through.

    Are you familiar w Rapp Optical based out of Toronto?

    http://www.rappoptical.ca/

    They combine acetate w titanium... quite interesting but I'm curious to hear your thoughts on quality and design.

    Thanks!

    These look a lot like my Barton Perreira Gilbert's.

    Thanks a bunch!
    Those look spot on. What are your thoughts on those frames?

    I really like them. They are light without feeling flimsy and all over seem to be very well made. You can also get clips for them which tread the line between cool and dorky.

    Would anyone be able to answer why poly is not the way to go? And what would be a better choice? I'd like to try get new glasses as soon as possible. Thanks.

    If polycarbonate lenses are out, what's the alternative? I know nothing about the different types of lenses available, polycarbonate just happened to be what the doctor had ticked off on my prescription.
