Persol 649

Hi guys! This might be quite an amateur question but I'm a 19 year old student in the UK and for this summer I'm wanting to invest in a pair of Persol 649's. My question is where are the best places to get a pair! I've been into sunglasses hut and found my size and if they suit my face (52mm and luckily, yes) but I don't particularly fancy paying through the nose at Sunglasses Hut. Being a student I hardly have major funds to be blowing on these glasses and have found a few pairs on eBay for around £95 - £105 (from UK sellers with 100% Feedback) my other question is what frame colour/lenses to get. I'm drawn towards black and dark green but am also intrigued by the dark havana.

I have blondey brown curly hair and my summer wardrobe will consist mainly of quite simple shirts, polos and oxfords and some slim fitted chino shorts - undecided on what shoes though! Forgive the slightly drunken photo but it gives you an idea of what I look like (I'm on the right)
