    I picked these up about 3 years ago and they're easily my favorite sunglasses. I never really liked the tortoise shell print before because I considered it a little too stuffy. However, on these ones, the design was modern, and the print just made them look classy. I've completely reversed my opinion on tortoise shell prints since then. I prefer a darker print over light ones though.

    The darker prints do look better as a generalisation but it does depend a bit on your coloring. I thnk the darker are more forgiving in that they look good on everyone while the paler shades are only look good on some people.

    These are currently my sole pair of sunglasses and I really like them - the combination of a quite modern frame style and the tortoise shell material appeals to me.

    Will from ASW posted about getting these glasses in the US last week. Went all the way to Vegas only to find out that Pinton is only selling in Paris these days. Not much info in it, but here is his post.
