Eyeglasses / Sunglasses Discussion
« on: March 19, 2010, 05:48:02 pm »
S/s '10 - sunglasses season (to me) is from march til october. Unless it rains, I always wear sunglasses out. Milano style - we don't care whether it's actually sunny  :P

So: what d'you wear?.. Show me the goods!..

(Pics of my pairs to come in a bit.)

Shit, I have dozens, Persol, Mauli Jim, Costa del Mar, Initium...Main criteria for me is that they need to be polarised.  I do a lot of fishing in the tropics and need a glass that will cut through the surface refections...I'll look them out and take some pics...G

Backed on the polarised glasses. Have some pairs that aren't and well, they will probs be sold...


DIOR aviators black/ black (polarised) - my fav pair


DIOR 'Black Tie' tortoise brown/ black (polarised) - maffia style (hence the mug), love these, crazy original (look at that bridge!..)


ARMANI black/ black (polarised) - boxy, but lotsa fun when wearing a slim fitting shirt and jeans


MOSLEY TRIBES brown/ brown (not polarised) - these are actually for sale


RALP LAUREN aviators tortoise brown/ gold/ brown (not polarised) - not sure whether I should keep these

I know almost zippo about sunglasses and don't even have a pair at the moment, but I plan to purchase one for summer. Any idea what works with a narrow face?

BTW Seul, Mykita makes some really nice pairs, you should check this brand out:

Maui Jim Big Island
Serengeti Velocity
Oakley Juliet
Oakley A Wire (in black and in red iridium)

I know Oakley is not commonly an approved brand with denimheads, but they can kiss my ass. I love em

I wish I could wear Wayfarer styled shades, but the bridge of my nose is too small and they keep sliding down my face
I know violence is not the answer, I got it wrong on purpose

Doug, there is an easy Wayfarer bridge solution. There are little silicon pads you can get at the optician (most likely for free or for $2). They are about the same size as normal nose pads (how do you call these things?) on glasses are. They are self-adhesive and you just stick them to the bridge of glasses. Works great.

The other thing is that the optician should be able to fit the temples on a Wayfarer so well that they won't slip. Simon626 will know more about all that.

That's true. Only so much adjusting can be done. But if you make the temple and possibly even slight bridge adjustment plus the silicone pads, I bet he can wear them or similar glasses. I think Doug gave the wayfarers just as an example.

Love the Chrome Hearts but the price is seriously nuts. I mean I wear Mikli and find those expensive but you gotta be quite a sucker for glasses (or have huge disposable income) to buy $1500 glasses that are not made of a super special material (e.g. real tortoise, sterling silver, horn) and that come from a relatively unknown brand. It's the Veblen effect where the perceived value of a good increases with a higher price. I tried some on. Really nice glasses but even for this luxury loving individual the price was too high by factor 3. And the margins on sunglasses are absolutely enormous already. Higher than on fashion usually.
