    the wayfarers have a line, but in the movie they are 3 dots that form a triangle

    Three dots don't necessarily form a triangle.

    Do you have to have the ones with 3 dots? What's wrong with the wayfarers?

    Rayban's "Tortoise Shell" isn't as bright as the one DiCaprio is wearing

    I used to own a pair of tortoise wayfarers, and they are like a dark dark brown, not a bright amber like those

    Hi!

    I've been looking for the same type of sunglasses for over a week now and though I wasn't able to trace the exact type, I DO know what brand it was.

    The brand was Céline:

    https://www.google.nl/search?hl=nl&...dr...0...1ac.1.64.img..11.12.1121.ynFWiBUCWrU

    The Céline "Radical" in light tortoise comes closest to the shades used in the movie. I think though the exact type was from another season and is therefore no longer made :(

    If I find one I will let you know!


    Note: Funny how a movie in which the main character copies the style of another movie's main character gets us copying the same way.
