    So, I like Louis Vuitton Millionaires, but I can't justify spending that much money. I've been looking around but can't find anything I like all that much. I don't like wire frames, and I have a sort of smaller face, not a big deal though. Here's what they look like.

    Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,
    David

    Scot Storch might have a liquidation sale soon.

    Bad. Exquisitely bad. Seriously, unforgivably bad: you can't be serious? ...Is he serious?

    If you don't like it, that's fine. At no point did I ask if you did. I just asked for help. I wouldn't do that to you.

    Let's point something out here. Scott Storch is a washed up hip hop producer. Louis Vuitton is a very well known brand. These particular glasses were designed by Pharrell, a well known, rapper and producer.

    My point is I want some big sunglasses that are not wire framed. I don't like traditional aviators. Thanks for the bumps.

    okay, seriously- I haven't seen oversized goldrimmed aviators before.

    but since you posted these pics, don't expect people not to create opinions about them. they're oversized goldrimmed logoed aviators. there is a specific demographic niche LV serves that buys this kind of product, and i certainly hope you don't find yourself in that market.

    So you want sunglasses that make you look like you've got more money than sense, but without having to spend the money?

    It's not about looking like I have money. I just like that type of frame. Non-wire, aviator-esque frames. It's not about looking expensive. I don't care what anyone thinks about it but me.

    And, forget the gold rims, I don't want that. It's just the shape that I am referencing.

    I want sort of aviators that are not wire framed I guess. Anything that fits that description is fine.

    I've seen some women's pradas that fit my description but for obvious reasons I don't want them. I've seen some decent polos that are kinda close but they are wire framed. There have to be some mens plastic frame sunglasses out there that are aviator-esque. I don't like Oakleys or brands like that, I have a couple pairs of them and I am bored with them.

    [​IMG] What about these? I don't know if these are mens though. And, I don't know anything about Marc Jacobs. Is there something out there similar to these?

    From what I know, any glasses like that (the pair you describe wanting), are generally womens. You are best off going and trying on every pair you see. It's a huge pain, but generally worth it. Sunglasses are something that you'll have to try on. You know what style you want, now all you need to do is find the fit, and brand.

    Honestly, you should probably stop there and accept the fact that you probably won't look very good in ANY large framed glasses.

    Do you want to look like a bug?

    Those are a vast improvement over those dreadful glasses from LV. What is there to know about Marc Jacobs? You like the style or you don't like the style, does it matter which Designer licensed their name?

    If you use Google, you can find many firms on the net that sell sunglasses.

    Good luck, Jim.

    I think he is, scary, eh. I wonder what those things sell for?

    I have a lady friend who I think won't be happy until she owns one of each handbag that LV makes. I compliment her on helping out the Chinese economy.
    They recently raised their prices about 200 bucks which I expect will result in increased demand.

    Cheers, Jim.
