I am currently looking for a designer eyeglass fames as well. I want one that has a subtle design. I was hoping Gucci made frames with their universal color which can be seen on the arms of the glasses. Can anyone suggest a model?

since the original poster is from socal, the only place I would reccomend is OLD FOCALS in pasadena. They are just a block south from 21 choices/h&m/neo39 etc. Vintage stuff, really cool vintage stuff. Makes me wish I needed a perscription to justify buying some frames.

I second Cutler & Gross. These things last forever. Oliver peoples is cool too and some older Paul Smith ranges. Effector seems good but I haven't tried them on.

Aside from their military issues, some older ROMCO stuff is pretty nice and cheap as well.

i can't afford to spend $00s on name brand frames.. so i just pick up some sunglasses frames i like... then bring them to my optometrist, and tell them to use the frame i have and put the new lenses in them... needs to be a hard plastic frame though cuz when they melt the lenses into the frame the actual frame could melt too.

saves hella $

i think you'd be crazy to order glasses without trying them on first... anyway both kio yamato and booth and bruce make good plastic frames that are stylish without getting too trendy

I order glasses all the time without trying them on. Eyeglasses have exact measurements and as long as you know your size you'll be fine. Now as far as how they will "look" on you... well that's a crap shoot. Most all my frames are similar so I'm pretty sure most of the time how they will look on me.

I'd love to see how my co-workers in my cubicle-esque office setting would react if I walked in with these babies.

Clear frames with chocolate lenses.

Got these custom made at 'Old Focals' in Pasadena.

Strange enough, I became obsessed with the shape of these glasses and wanted to find a back-up pair and came across something almost identical, Selima optique for Jack Spade. 'Mike' sunglasses, although mine were about 200$ less.

I really don't understand people who wear clear glasses when they don't need them... I hate wearing glasses... they're annoyingly uncomfortable... I try to avoid them for so many years now... but my eyes got a bit worse in recent years so now I have to wear them cause I can't wear contacts... :(
