    $360, pricey and fold

    Do you guys think its worth dropping the extra cash for the $360? I tried both on and I thought they were both great. I just cant decideeee!

    I don't really buy into the necessity of folding. Are they supposed to fit in your jacket? Mine are in the case when I am not wearing them.

    Exactly. I struggle to see the benefit of folding glasses up so small. I have loads of sunglasses and when I take them off they go in the chest pocket of my jacket or if I'm not wearing a jacket, I fold an arm into the front of my shirt or whatever. I have never thought 'I wish I could fold them in half again and stuff them into my jeans'.

    I have a pair of folding Persols.
    Not these models. Reading glasses.
    Very convenient. Since I do not wear glasses,
    I am not used to carrying glasses all the time.
    These readers ae very compact.

    Serious question - why are there suddently three or four separate threads on the front page? Is Persol doing some kind of campaign? Is it just a summer thing? Summer 2012, summer of Persols?

    I actually have to exchange my pair...the frames have a defect on the folding henge...makes it look cheap. Going to go during lunch.
