No thread on here are about these sunglasses. Does anyone on here have a pair or can vouch for their overall quality? The price is really quite large, but if they will last me some years it doesn't matter too much.

I found these whilst browsing context clothing; this is my first run in with this manufacturer, and I will gladly accept advice.

I like the ones Jcrew has more than the ones on context or on selimas own site.

Gilt Group has Paul Smith (Oliver Peoples) for $90ish, and they also have had Mosley Tribes sales. You can also find them on ebay, just be careful not to buy something that seems too good to be true, and check feedback.

I wouldn't pay 280$ for those (I'd be way too scared of breaking or losing them), but they're still gorgeous. Need to try to find something more affordable but with a similiar styling.

Hmm, I think I'm just going to get them; I need it to complete a 'look' It's kindof expensive, but money is not so good collecting dust.

FWIW, Selima is not a manufacturer. She's merely a retailer turned designer. She used to sell an assortment of brands in her shop and branched out into her own branded frames. She's been pretty successful at pushing her brand and expanding her retail operations. Don't know who makes the products though.

If I found a cheaper pair, would you give me the difference?
