    They are made by a company called Shwood. I love them.
    Is the wood strong? I would worry about it breaking or cracking since it's so thin.

    This thread is just in time. I was just looking at some Persol 714s this morning.

    Persol wayfarer style

    What's the "wayfarer style"? The 2989 posted earlier?

    ^^ I like those. Do you prefer them to the 714s? I'm on the fence, but leaning 714.

    The 714's are good looking but too large for my face. These are a much better look for me.

    I've been looking for a pair of these Cutler & Gross's ever since I saw Quantum of Solace:

    I like these - what are RDJ?

    Anyone have pics of Randolph Engineering's Crew Chief or Aviator glasses?
