    Hey folks,

    I want to buy a new pair of sunglasses and need your an opinion on some choices I have. I am really not fashion-addict and have no big clue on sunglasses style. My aim is to look different though not over styled. And I dont want to be the 1000th guy running on the streets with an Aviator or Pilot sunglasses. I am after sunglasses that will give me a distinctive look and personal style maybe a bit "player" like.

    I have a quite round shaped head with a strong forehead (jewish east-european type). So I think that sunglasses with middle sized spectacles would fit best and give a distinctive recognition value.

    Here is a Paul Smith 386 with kinda classy , timeless look:

    Here a cool Tom Ford 133 with a strong form, though I think this one fits more for a afro-american type of guy:

    Here another Tom Ford 126. Actually I like this one. Though it might be considered "boring".

    Here is a Balenciaga 0011 which fits quite well too.

    Here is another Tom Ford 109 Cyrille, Classic Aviator style, maybe a bit too big for my head

    Paul Smith and Tom Ford 126 are my favs at the moment!

    So whats your opinion on those?

    Cheers,
    Tony

    IMO, if you want something that is nice without over doing it, these ones are classy. Not too much style and just a bit of detailing on the front. I think these are the most casual yet stylish....

    But try them on and see what you like. It might not even fit you that well. Seems like it has a wide nose bridge and by your description, I see you having a long narrow nose (not trying to criticize, just trying to help). Probably wont fit all that comfortably.

    Hopefully they fit you better than that mannequin.

    They look a little too chunky to me.

    It might be because the mannequin is small though.

    The tom ford 126s are great. I really like them, but they are way too much just for sunglasses. Anyone know of any alternatives?

    That mannikin head is suspiciously petite.

    They are called the Ultra-Goliath, and are apparently hand-made in Japan.

    What model are you looking for? Some people, myself included, probably got some at the recent Gilt sale, and may flip them here later. Gilt has the best prices you'll see anywhere. As far as coupons, I know one of the sponsor sunglass sights here does NOT carry the OP/Mosley family, so no luck there.

    i like the brown, but the black will be more versatile.
