    Thanks for the advice but I bought some Tom Ford Miguels yesterday.

    I'm looking to list a pair of sunglasses (pictured below) for sale but I actually have no idea why "type/style" they are. And also, when listing sunglasses, what sort of measurements and other info do people want to know? Thanks [​IMG] [​IMG]

    So I pulled the trigger on some Salt Terry's. I got these for $150 shipped from a guy off eBay. Claims they're in 10 out of 10 condition and only wore them 2 or 3 times. He also guarantees they're authentic or my money back no problem.

    What do you guys think?

    Those are insane. I didn't have $365 budgeted for a pair of shades, but I might have to do it anyway. Are those the burlywood or whatever? They're my favorite out of the six. And does anyone one know a reputable place to cop under retail?

    You should list lens, bridge and temple size.

    I know this has probably been asked, but I've searched the thread for "wayfarer alternatives" and a few other keywords, but haven't found it, so:
    I've been wearing traditional wayfarers for the past year or so, and I like the look, but I want something that isn't Rayban. I know Prada came out with a few Wayfarer-ish designs a year or two ago, but I'm having trouble locating them. Can anyone recommend some alternatives? I was looking at Moscot, but haven't found anything in particular that I like. Any recs?

    ^ Robert Geller's "David" sunglasses are wayfarer inspired. I own a pair in matte black and love 'em.

    retrosuperfuture does a lot of wayfarer-esque sunglasses. Look for the "classics" model. Free of any logos, look mean in matte black.
    oakley frogskins may fit the bill aside from the obnoxious branding on the side...

    Those sunglasses are gorgeous. I've been lusting for a pair in tortoise.

    And +1 on the retrosuperfuture rec, they have a lot of wayfarer inspired stuff. Like stevie said, the "classics" model is the most similar to a traditional wayfarer. I own the super "people" sunglasses by them, which are great too.

    Hi everyone,

    Just wondering what you think of these Ray Ban aviators? Do they suit my face, and if not, what do you recommend instead? Thanks a lot! [​IMG]

    They're a bit small on your face, but they still look pretty okay.
