    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    I'm a terrible buyer/collector/hoarder of sunglasses. Obviously aesthetics are subjective but in terms of outright quality, it's very hard to beat Serengeti.

    I'm currently wearing a pair of their polarized driver's lenses in the car which are spectacularly good for driving (amazingly[​IMG] ) and a pair of non-polarized 555nm lenses for general non-car wear. Both are excellent - glass lenses, solid construction and fairly classically styled (although they do both lenses in a multitude of styles).

    My poor Oakley, Ray-Ban, Persol and Oliver Peoples are mostly confined to the drawer these days.

    Some examples of the Serengetis I have:

    Can anybody suggest some places to pick up sunglasses in Hong Kong? I'll be there mid May and would love to pick up some new shades.

    Here are mine. Made in France (either in the 1950s or 1960s) and restored by Retrospecs in LA.

    Picked up a pair of Persol 714s and wore them on a trip to Cali last week. Perfect.

    To think that I went to that particular optician to get a pair of Cutler & Gross sunglasses, but when I tried them, realized they looked really weird. So, I was handed that pair of Retrospecs to try on and it was an instant match.

    If you're in DC, go to Insight Opticians. Tony will take good care of you.

    Frames look good, but personally I prefer standard slim wire arms for aviators.

    If anyone comes across an EU source for Persol 2802s, please share.
    Anyone?
