    Yes,.apparently Depp does wear them.

    I actually saw them in an online magazine and then found out Johnny wears them too.


    I've never seen this shade and color combination of the tortoise shell color pattern. Its reminiscent of an aged oak barrel in a very old cellar whereas newer or more modern tortoise shell color patterns seem very clinical or deliberate in design.

    The first page should be titled: "Strange sunglasses that serve no practical purpose for non-vampire daywalkers".

    The Thom Browne sunglasses are great no matter what the haters say.

    I had a similar pair of Oliver Peoples but lost them in Firenze. :violin:

    I found them on the German Polo website - for some reason this exact colour is not being shown on the American site. I guess contacting them directly might solve the issue.

    I have a feeling my cache of carbon fibre ray bans doesn't fit this thread?

    what's the cost of entry here?

    Haha



    Very nice!



    You rock!


    No cost of entry. Just an appreciation for fine eye wear.

    well then....

    I lost a couple pairs of CF raybans earlier this year while working on the road... the solution... buy/build like 5 more pairs so that if you lose them it's not a big deal :)
