    Temple detail is different, the 4141s in your link have 2 dots infront of the Rayban logo. He's probably just wearing regular Wayfarers, he's been in some of the Sartorialist and Non-Sartorialist threads in MC

    I feel like the arm looks way too long to be a regular Wayfarer

    Can anybody suggest sunglasses for me? I'm looking for wayfarer-types, but am one of those Asians with a big but flat faces...

    Just for reference, the Oliver Peoples Daddy B (which is massive, lens and temple size are like 58-18) looks great on me.. I would get them if two of my best friends didn't already have them. I was thinking maybe Dior black tie 104s but it's slightly smaller and I don't have the opportunity to try them on..what do you guys think?

    Funny, I was considering the Bailey too (my daughters name[​IMG] ) . Saw the Arnaud and ended up getting it, I can post some pics if you'd like.
    Mind if I ask where you got the Arnaud's? I'm liking them and the Ramone's not sure I want to spend $400 on glasses though. Did you happen to find them a bit cheaper? And of course, how do you like them ?

    [​IMG] Just got these shipped to me. I think they're awesome because they're the Wayfarer alternative I was looking for and perfect for my round face. Thoughts?

    has anyone had any experience with Gaffos? I placed an order with them a week ago and then sent them a message saturday via both the site and this site to find out when my order would ship. no response.

    EDIT: I'm editing just in case someone else was planning on ordering from them. They shipped yesterday, after I emailed them twice with no response, and called once, also with no response. The glasses took ten days total to ship (FAQ pseudo-promises a one-business day turnaround). They also hit me with shipping, even though the site promises free shipping on all orders over $99.

    Just updating. I'm glad they shipped: I can't decide if I'm pissed off at Gaffos or not.

    I love the persol 649 and 714, but the nose is too large for my face... i also tried the folding ralph lauren purple label sunglasses in the same style, the nose fits but the lenses are too small...

    i basically need lenses that are 52 and nose that is 19... any suggestions?

    I'm looking at either Randolph Engineering or American Optical Aviator (both are pretty much the same) after many good reviews here. Anyone can advise on the sizing? Which frame color and lenses are more versatile for a tanned guy? If it helps, I'm 5 9 tall.

    Details
    Size: 50 52 55 58mm
    Frame color: Bright chrome, Matt chrome, Matt black, Gunmetal
    Lenses: Grey glass, Grey polarized glass, Grey polarized polycarbonate, AGX glass, Tan glass

    Here is the link: http://www.randolphusastore.com/aviator.html

    Thank you!

    There's something ugly about the hinges on most Mykita frames. They seem over-engineered.

    Why not just go with the traditional gold frame/agx lens? Can't go wrong with that. Gold frame with tan glass is also a great combo.

    Frame size is more of a personal thing. What size do you typically wear on sunglasses/glasses? Do you want them to be oversized or fit your face just right? I personally like the 52mm silver/AGX, but that's just me.
