    I'm getting some new sunglasses, and found a pair from Carrera that I liked.
    I was told I could get around 20% off the MSRP since we're such good customers, and I'm just wondering if they're worth it quality wise.

    It's basically the Carreras or perhaps some Ray-Bans that I liked, they did have som Gucci, Dior et al, but they didn't fit at all. Not a big store, and I could use some new sunglasses now. So, are Carrera at 20% off worth it or not?

    Crosspost from the "Should I buy" thread. Was hoping for some feedback on these sunglasses as I have a a few days still to exchange.
    I picked these up, but have a week to exchange them. Thoughts on the fit for my large noggin? [​IMG] [​IMG] These are the Maui Jim, Kepena model.

    We've got a few more flamboyant styles of vintage eyewear in stock, but I thought something like these would tickle some SF fancies. I went with these two:

    Fuck, I need these Bartons. Where to kop?


    NM, found them at sunglass city for 430. The java/sequoia is my favorite.

    These arrived yesterday and after a six month search for new shades, let's just say it was well worth the wait.

    What's the current recommended source for Persols? Otticanet.com is cheap but gets a lot of terrible reviews. Sounds shady.

    I'm a fan of the Han Timeless. If anyone sees the blue, white, yellow, or green frame in this model available somewhere, please pm me!

    Anybody know where to check out the new Randolph p3 in New York? Since Iceberg took off I haven't seen Randolph around the city.

    ^It's a good fit for you. My next pair is going to be a similar shape.

    Anyone knows of an L.G.R. retailer without an online presence? The only online store that still has the model I want is charging $100 more than what the US retailers sold them for.

    edit: I found the list of stores on their website. duh!

    where are you getting carrera's 20% off? carrera has been around a long time and they are already reasonably affordable, so at 20% off, i think its a great deal. i'm looking to pick up a pair of safari's myself.

    ottica is legit.

    Purchased there a whole ton of times. It's so cheap that if I don't like it, I have no troubles selling them off for what I paid.
