    Good day all,

    My name is Jim and I just purchased a pair of vintage Persols. I have many, many sunglasses but this is my first pair of Persols. I attempted to scan around to find something that matched but that was a fruitless endeavor. I am attaching a link and hopefully one of the style gurus can enlighten me.

    Thanks,
    Jim

    Any takers?? I am very curious to "when" it could have been produced.

    Welcome to the forum.

    I don't think they're very old based on the printing inside the temples, the case, and the logo on the lens. Probably mid to late 90's would be my guess. Not sure why they say "handmade" but I'm pretty sure they are post-Luxottica since the printing and case etc. still look like that.

    Thanks again,

    I doubt that they're too old considering that they're polarized. I don't think that was standard much before the late 1980s.
