    I had been a die hard transitions lens kinda guy but not any more. My new pair of specs is the OP Deacon model with translucent grey-ish frame and I put in the slightest pink tint with harmful ray protection. I am really loving them. I know the frame has been around a while but the finish of these is like nothing I had seen anywhere else and I have had my eye on these frames for a year at least. Pardon the pun.

    Sounds interesting - can you post a pic?

    I've been thinking about tinted prescription aviators. Not full on sunglasses, but lighter. Sounds cool but I don't know...

    So I'm thinking about getting some more serious frames (I have some Luckys right now that are fine, but nothing special).

    Is there a post or thread somewhere that has a list of the SF-approved top tier eyewear brands?

    I know about the stand-bys such as Oliver Peoples and Tom Ford -- I'm looking more for the less well-known and perhaps slightly edgier designers.

    not sure about consensus but mikli is pretty interesting and great for the price.

    this is my feeling

    I'm definitely interested in going for something bolder

    A lot of the mikli stuff is a little too out-there, but I dig a lot of the more subdued colors, or the various black-with-subtle-pattern frames

    I really like the frames from SALT Optics (from what I hear, some people left Oliver Peoples to form it, after Luxotica bought them out). I also saw some great frames at facial-index in NYC including a line called Spivvy that are made in Japan. Anyone know more about either company or their frames (SALT or Spivvy)? www.facial-index.com (watch out, annoying flash/shockwave window maximier) http://www.saltoptics.com/

    Miklis are well made. Made in France. But they are slightly heavy because they are thicker set.
