Is there really a danger in using cheap sunglasses and increasing the amount of UV rays reaching the eye? I just read up on it after reading the thread, and that doesn't seem to be the case.

My source was wikipedia (i know, how reliable is it really) and there was this tidbit:

"There is no demonstrated correlation between high prices and increased UV protection. A 1995 study reported that "Expensive brands and polarizing sunglasses do not guarantee optimal UVA protection." [3] The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission has also reported that "[c]onsumers cannot rely on price as an indicator of quality".[4] One unscientific survey even found a $6.95 pair of generic glasses with slightly better protection than Salvatore Ferragamo shades.[5]"

It doesn't seem to be the case.

Right now I have a cheap pair of aviators but will get a pair of those beloved Wayfarers in the near future.

They look vintage, perhaps Persol. Persol did a lot of those plastic tortoise-shell patterns.

As for the Vuitton luggage, yes, it was specially made for the film with designs by Anderson's brother who is some sort of artist who also did those little pictures in the ballroom in "The Royal Tenanbaums". They recently auctioned the set.

My friend recently bought a pair that look exactly like that at this little vintage eyewear place. There were tons with the same shape but differnt plastics/colors. everything was really old though.

i vaguely remember reading an article saying it's basically just jacobs crafting up the designs with extreme attention to detail as per anderson's desires. stemming from their mutual admiration, and a desire to work with one another?

There was a shot of them from the side during the movie and they were Vuarnets. I've been looking for them myself, but its hard to find such a specific model.

i can only help in that i've seen both these sites carry the newest line of Ford at one time;

www.bluebee.com

www.jransomla.com

www.activeendeavors.com

although, active doesn't seem to have ANY right now...maybe check back?

Spectacles for humans will sort you out with OG if you have to pay in US but I imagine OG's will come in the same price if not less if you order from an EU supplier.
