    Does anybody know a cheaper or just other options to these Paul Smith glasses? There's a lot of similar wayfarer-type glasses out there but I really like the squareness of these.

    ^ If you are feeling thrifty target has a pair of really square wayfarers for $14.00

    My question: What are the chances of finding a place local where I can try on Persol 649? I did some calling but most places seem to not carry them. I want to see if I need a 49 or 52.

    It seems that Sunglass Hut doesn't carry the Persol 649 either. Bummer.

    I ordered some Salt sunglasses last week. Can't wait to get them this week!

    SUPERS kinda fit the bill but i dont think they have those little metal dot details on the ends of the glasses and on the arms like the ones in that pic.

    I like the new Gucci ones, that came out one or two months ago.
    With the beautiful days coming up (well I may have to wait a little bit as it rains since one month in San Francisco), I may get one of these in black plus Persol 649, but still hesitating about the size, 56 or 58. I like big sunglasses, small ones just don't fit me at all.

    My friend stepped on my Rayban aviators and I was wondering if it was possible to get a replacement side piece?

    If I was in your position I'd be looking for a replacement friend.

    I just recently returned a pair of Oakley Inmates. Loved how they looked (the giant lenses looked good on my fat head [​IMG] ), but they fit too tight, the earsocks would press against my temples and it hurt like hell. I considered trying to bend them a bit, but returned them instead, and at some point I will try and grab a cheap pair off Ebay before I attempt this. Speaking of Ebay, I just recently grabbed these: [​IMG] I get the impression they might be a little small, but we'll see. I'm sure the gradient lenses alone have 80% of the forum dry-heaving, but oh well.

    Haha ahh i feel you. Its hard to find sunglasses that work with my more narrow face... HUGE seems to still be all the rage right now :/ Some bigger ones CAN work cause i have a longer nose, but even then... options limited.

    I on the other hand can not pull off small sunglasses at all. So the large sunglasses movement has certainly worked well for me

    I also have a narrow face so large sunglasses don't work for me. I've been searching for square plastic framed sunglasses forever but can't find what I want. Most of the smaller wayfarer types are rounded and if I do find square frames, the lenses are 57mm+. If you're looking for aviator style sunglasses, the American Optical pilot in size 52mm work for me.
