    Hey folks! I hope this is the right place to ask, but I've recently been looking for a pair of Clubmaster-style half frame sunglasses. From what I've found, the ones that fit best for me are slightly squared off, like the Dita Nomad and the Salt Harlan frames. I have a slim, oval face and so most of the ray-bans and even persols are a bit too round. Would you guys have any recommendations for a pair under $250? The Maui Jim Stillwater frame also fits really well, but I feel like the antiqued, patterned metal frame is not that versatile. While I love the Salts and the Ditas, they're not in my price range (for now).

    Thanks,
    -Krad

    Question on Browline (Clubmaster style) glasses. Were the lenses traditionally made with mineral glass or a form of plastic/polycarbonate?

    I checked out some Ray Ban Clubmasters recently and was surprised with the weight, which I'm assuming is from the glass lenses.

    Even though they are the modern ones made in China, they felt sturdy and pretty well made to my uneducated eyes. I don't know much about glasses, but from what I noticed, they had 5 barrel hinges and felt substantial in the hand.

    Curious, what Browline glasses did Malcolm X wear? From what I gathered, they were from Victory Optical. Can anyone confirm?

    Damn, I just realized that my recent sunglasses Moscot Lemtosh are made in China or South Korea. That's a real disappointment - especially when the price is 300 eur. Misleading as fuck.

    It’s only readable in Moscot FAQ – uploaded as a PDF on Moscots website– therefore not visable by google eyes…

    Straight out from Moscots FAQ

    WHERE IS MOSCOT EYEWEAR MANUFACTURED?

    MOSCOT Eyewear is designed and prototyped in our New York City office, and then
    handmade and assembled in our factories in China and South Korea in accordance with our
    rigorous standards of quality and excellence. Every MOSCOT frame is then quality controlled
    in our New York City Shop’s labs before being


    Where are Moscot made?

    Moscot are made in China or South Korea.

    Neither do I - if the brand plays with open cards. I really liked a pair of Garrett Leight that I tried, unfortunately... to small. Anyhow - G.L is proud to announce MIC, not the other way around.

    Enough is enough. No more tears from my side... ;) I'm just about to pick up my Oliver Peoples Gregory Peck with prescription glass.

    Have a nice day.

    Does anybody have any first hand experience of Nackymade?

    I was planning on trying a pair of his RTW sunglasses at Drakes next time I am in London though at £400+ they are quite pricey. I messaged him direct and his bespoke are £600+ so my man maths makes me think the bespoke are somewhat of a bargain compared to his RTW.

    Are there any other makers I should consider at this price point who offer true bespoke at the same quality or better that that of Nacky?

    I particularly like his style and approach though would be keen to hear people's opinion.

    How's the quality on Dolabany glasses? I'm interested in the Arnold model.

    I've tried on the 44 width, which was way too small on me. The store didn't have the larger width in stock, so I'm still looking to try on the 46 width one in person.

    How do Dolabany glasses compare (construction/material wise) to the likes of Moscot (Lemtosh)? How do they compare to vintage Tart Arnel frames?

    I think Kiefer Sutherland wears Moscots in his new show. They look good on him. What lens size do you think he's wearing on the show?

    I tried to go through every thread in this megathread, and I didn't see this question. Forgive me if I missed it; but can someone ID these shades for me?
    Yes, I know that Steve McQueen is well know for his Persol's but these appear to be something else. Does anyone know?

    Hi,

    Can anyone tell me what's the difference between tom ford henry and clubmaster? I can't find any optical store that carries TF henry anymore.

    Thanks

    Any chance there is anyone out there that recalls what kind of sunglasses these are, from around 2006??

    I have a pair of these from a while back and recently found another pair. Definitely my favorite sunglasses. Is there a name for this style of frame where the upper corners are another color of acetate? These are made by Retrosuperfuture, but I am wondering if there are others who make a similar frame.

    I've wanted a pair of sunglasses like this for probably 8 months or so now:

    [​IMG]

    I recently purchased these and they just arrived: http://www.pretavoir.co.uk/us/saint-laurent-sl-28-012.html

    They retail on most sites around $325 but Pretavoir had them for $216 + shipping (last pair I think). They are the St Laurent SL 28 in Crystal/Mirror lens (012 style).

    The main difference is the guy in the photo has a metal nose bridge, but on my list of reasons why I liked the glasses that was very low. I just liked the squared off wayfarer-ish look (yet with flat lenses + frame), clear acetate and silver mirror finish. The shape of these glasses and the detailing, barring the bridge, is on point with that photo. Furthermore the only celebrity I could find wearing these glasses was Scott Disick and the guy in the Pitti photo looks like Scott Disick so I was able to get a fairly good read on whether these would have the same look.

    Anyway these were made by Kering for St Laurent... does anyone know anything about them? They are made in Italy. It seems they are Luxottica competition. I know Luxottica is frowned upon but their products hold up for me. Is Kering as reliable quality-wise?
