    Loden wool, woven in Tirol for centuries, is known for its resistance to cold and wetness. Our project in collaboration with Epaulet introduces Alpine Loden, a modern 18oz fabric blend of 75% merino wool and 25% nylon, woven in Italy. It's lighter, more durable, wind-resistant, and more comfortable than traditional Loden fabric. Partnering with Rochester Tailored Clothing, we offer custom garments like sportcoats, suits, and overcoats, made to your specifications. Learn more about the Loden collection here.

I have a pair of Ray Bans 14mm L 0556. Gold aviators. I need a replacement left temple arm and screw. What’s the best way to source this part?

I am a self proclaimed expert on Bausch and Lomb aka Vintage Ray Bans. I have a degree in Vintage Ray Ban Eyewear, if you need help or have a question this is the place to get answers. I also buy them if you have a pair or more you want to sell. Cheers.
Hey musehead, I am new and found this post. So, registered to ask for some help. I have a B&L Ray-Ban from my dad that I THINK are late 70s Caravan based on some online searching (B&L etched, no white marking on lens). The thing is, the original frame broke, so he found some non-RB replacement frame which is crooked, causing the temples to be loose for me. I bought the same size 58mm RB3136 non-vintage from eBay which looks like it's from 90s (RB etched on 1 lense, Ray-Ban white logo). These are prescription lens. My plan was to use this frame for my vintage lens (non prescription). I got the ones from eBay today but they are slightly shorter and the curve is a bit off compared to the vintage. My vintage lens don't fit in the gold RB3136 frame even though both are 58mm. So, I am wondering what went wrong. Is it that the Caravans have had small changes in shape over the decades or is it that the prescription lens could have been cut? Is my vintage glass a Caravan or some other model? Any ideas on how I can get a frame for my vintage caravan 58mm? Thanks a lot to anyone that can help. I love these glasses. I have attached 2 pics: gold frame is the eBay RB3136. I can send side by side pics too if that helps.
