    Hi guys,

    First post here, so don't be gentle.[​IMG]

    I just bought the Persol 9649-s in size 52 and I love them, except for one thing that keeps bugging me. My girlfriend told me they looked a bit small at first glance in the store - but not anymore, she took it back. Now they're perfect she says.

    I hope you'll agree, or tell me to fuck off and buy another pair instead. You know why? Because I can! The frame was broken (have to return) when i purchased them, so I can go for a new pair of 52 or change my mind and go in another direction. But to be honest, I love the frame, the colour changes from grey, brown and black. A workhorse, goes with almost everything in my closet. Awesome!

    So, what do you think about the size? They're avaliable in 55 as well. I have tried them, to big in my opinion (my girlfriends to).

    Here's some cute pictures friends and thank you for your time.

    Enjoy (and sorry for bad english)!

    xoxo[​IMG]

    ^ @mildundklar Looks good man… definitely keep the 52, do not go larger. If you end up expanding your collection with another pair you could even benefit from something a bit more angular as your face shape is pretty versatile. btw… your English is better than my what? German from your screen name? Wherever you are looks nice! :D

    Thank you for those kind words @kind nickels.[​IMG]

    Among my collection of sunglasses I also own two pair of Ray-Ban. Clubmaster and Wayfarer, a bit booring but always a safe card if you ask me. The time is here to expand in a crazy way from now on with a solid ground.

    I'm actually from Sweden and you're correct with the German screen name.

    Pictures taken in Grebbestad, Swedish west coast. It's amazing!

    Damn, I already feel that this forum is perfect for me - in a bad way for my wallet. Haha. I'm also a guitar and watch entusiast with alot of ours spend on forums. This is only going to end in one way.

    Soon to be ex-girlfriend.[​IMG]

    If you're looking for something really different, check out my sunglass thread:

    http://www.styleforum.net/t/384084/a-thread-for-sunglasses-high-end-and-rarities-welcome

    It's dedicated more towards high end and unusual brands. Persol is one of the better Luxxotica companies, but it still is under the same corporate umbrella as Ray-Ban, Oakley, etc. Lux likes to recycle designs across their various brands when one proves successful, so you can get more variety and better quality with the independent brands. That being said, Persol certainly isn't a bad brand, and I think the pair you posted fits you well.

    Thank you @Tsujigiri - very much.

    I scrolled through the thread pretty fast (working...) and I was just about to ask you about the brand Super, but you covered that part in your thread. Unfortunately I missed the opportunity to get a pair of Super (two pairs actually) this spring, with a 50% deal off to. To bad, especially since they flew under my radar at ordinary price to.

    I have a pair of Ray Ban 1952 white gold limited edition sunglasses. Unfortunately I don't have the box but have the original case.
    These were bought 4 years ago from a sunglasses shop in the UK. Can anyone advise on value?

    My ancient B&L Wayfarers are snapped over the nose. Is there a Magician anywhere that can fix or replace this front panel?

    Do you wanna find another pair of this model or you wanna know the name? Someone call this model: W1083 but if you google it, you'll firstly find some more squared models. Try asking to some sellers on Etsy.com which have many vintage sunglasses ( baush & lomb ray ban in this case I think are yours )they will know for sure the exact name.

    Black frames with brown or bronze lenses yea or nay?

    There was a time when we were told not to mix black with brown pieces of clothing but that has loosened up in the past decade and depends a lot on fabrics used.

    I'm just wondering if it also applies to sunglasses. For instance I don't think Persol has a black frame/bronze lens combo anymore and other high end brands tend to match brown/bronze lenses with other than black frames. The more sports inclined brands, Maui Jim, Revo, Oakley do however have several different models with black frames with brown/bronze lenses.

    thoughts?

    thanks

    I want to buy a pair of Wayfarers and I'm having trouble deciding which color frames would be most versatile for me : black, navy, brown or tortoiseshell
    I mostly wear navy,grey,white,tan,olive,burgundy, hardly any black. Was thinking navy might be best because it goes with earth tones and neutrals as well as with black.
    Thanks for any help!

    I personally wouldn't do it. Black or grey lenses with black frames. Anything else is fair game. Green lense with tortoise is a personal favorite of mine.

    What are you going to use the lense for ? I had tan lenses with black frames for cycling early in the morning when it's foggy. But I doubt that's why you're asking.



    Tortoise is most versatile given the colors you listed.

    Thanks for your response.

    the sunglasses are to wear while traveling and sightseeing. I don't wear jeans and t-shirts so they would be to compliment khaki's and a polo
