    From what I have have gathered from reading his posts, his ass for a hat.

    BTW, Persol makes the Italian made Purple Label sunglasses. In fact, just about the slickest shades around if you like the style are the Purple Label folders in black with a green lens; absent the Persol chrome, they are quite subtle.

    Hi all. I'm decided for the 649's. I found some in framesdirect.com. Do SFers get any kind of coupon or discount or something there? (since there is a link in the top of the B&S forums)

    Any advice?

    Sorry, doesn't look like they have any promos that would apply here unless you are getting them made prescription ($25 off with a coupon).

    I was thinking in puting the prescription myself, but if I can do it in fd.com, that would be great. Where do I find the code? Also. I tried to order prescription but I cant get the link for that (In wayfarers was pretty easy, it appear in the search results)

    Thanks for thinking to use the forum link!

    I'm not really sure on the procedure to do the prescription on the site but you could try their support, they've been good in my experience.

    to those looking for persol i've seen them at loehmann's all summer and they're on sale (at least at the few i've stopped at recently) for less then $50, so check if you want one and have a loehmann's nearby.

    are all 649's the same size? or do they come in multiple sizes?

    if multiple sizes, how do u determine what size is best for you? is there a measurement to be made?

    put a tape measure to my face or something?

    thanks

    714 and 649 are the same other than the folding feature. Both come in various sizes.........

    The 649 were made famous by Marcello Mastroani, the 714 were the signature shaes of Steve Mcqueen. Both are very cool sunglasses.
