    Looks like Lindberg's strip titanium aviator.

    Look up "Luxottica." If you do your research, you'll see why people here hate Ray-Ban and Oakley. FWIW, I actually have the Gascans, but wouldn't recommend them for general use. Sport sunglasses in general don't look very good and are best used for activities that really require the impact protection (I use mine for shooting), but if that's what you really want I've found that Rudy Project makes a better product.

    I have a pair of RB 3044, the smaller 52mm frames. They have the 135mm temple arms. The frames are perfect for my face but the temple arms at 135mm are a bit too short. I just bought some 140mm temple arms that are typically used for the larger 3025/3026 aviator. they are basically the same frame just slightly bigger, they should fit fine on the 3044 frame right???

    Hi I’m now to forum and I’m looking to see if anyone can recommend a similar design to Ray-Ban Wayfarer sunglasses? Specifically New Wayfarer Classic RB2123 which are framed a little smaller and lighter. Obviously the Wayfarers are an iconic design but the brand is now owned by the cartel Luxottica and I rather not give them a dime. Does anyone know of another brand that I should look into? Any assistance would greatly be appreciated.

    okay so an email to Ray Ban customer service quickly got me a reply on this subject. All Ray Ban aviator temple arms fit on all steel framed aviators. For instance the RB 3025/3026 arms will fit on the smaller RB3044 and so on and so on............

    Sorry but that brand is not sold anywhere in US market. Shipping from EU or Demark makes returning products a hassle and potentially very costly if you don't like the product.

    Sorry but the company does not list any retail locations in the US nor can I find a online retailer within the US that carries Wolfgang from Han Kjobenhaven. I just spent the last 30 minutes checking multiple sites but most are in the UK and that simply won't work for me.

    I'm just going to call you out your wrong twice. Lyst is not direct seller it is an intermediary processing site based in London and referrs back to the manufacture site for policy's and returns.

    Whatever makes you sleep better at night bro...if it isn't potentially worth 20 bucks to ship back don't buy them and find something for yourself.

    I don't sympathize with people who need help finding something that looks good on them. Try shit for yourself. Sometimes it cost money to find out it doesn't work. Take your lumps and move on. Go to an independent eyeware store in your area and pic something that looks good.

    Your comment that Han is not sold in U.S. Is wrong. Maybe I didn't provide a solid example but they sell Han on jcrew and have for like 4 years...just not the one you want.


    I told you to look into bp yesterday. They have more frames that look like wayfarer then anyone else. I'm not linking them because I'm on my phone and it's a pain in the ass

    Finding items available in certain markets can be tricky scenario regardless if it’s sunglasses I just rather use U.S based retailer for smoother transaction and possible free shipping and returns. Especially if I order several models and finishes. As for your suggestion on Barton Perreira thank you I’ve never heard of this brand until now,I will definitely be take a look at these.
