I've been looking for these shades but to no avail.
The only place I've seen them are in this movie: Night On Earth (Jim Jarmusch). They are worn by Roberto Bengini in the Rome section of the movie.
Any ideas/suggestions?

As the movie was '91 I'm assuming they are no longer available, but something very similar must exist today..surely?

This is a trailer:

Thanks for that.
However the Begnini's are more in the traditional shape, in the arms being at right angles to the frame. foldable. Although the deep arms at the hinge point are like the police ones. if you saw the film you'd see what i mean. i think you need a particular shape of head to wear the police shades.
