    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.

    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.
