timber, i think those are clear? i remember seeing a more rectangular shaped from spivvy in a transparent yellow. might be a bit hard to find now though.

jonle714, they look good on you. a tiny bit narrow, but nothing to fret about.

i use to own a pair of those oliver peoples. there used to be alot of them on ebay (i think they are fakes). the frames are very straight, to the point where they look angled out when worn. a very awkward fit. theres a similar modern version called the wylie (theres one on ebay now). it's a little small but fits alot nicer. i'll post a fit pic when i get home later tonight.

anyone know if spectacles for humans are on break atm? emails arn't getting answered :/.

edit: heres a fit pic of the wylie's.

Looking for decent optics in NYC, can't really spend massive premium. Should I bother with a boutique or just get best-of mall ish?

Anyone have a pair of Masaki Matsushima? Are they worth the price? Also seems like they fit wide.

Saw this pair on e-bay that I like. Unfortunately, it seems that it might be fake from the price point and also the casing seems different to the ones on rakuten and the official site.

I think they'd look a lot better on you if you had less of a fringe.

is there a site with a good database of their collection? the official site is pretty shit.

Had these for about 2.5 years now, I'm about to get a new pair along with new Rx this weekend. But also plan on swapping the Rx on the current pair to alternate a bit between the two.

where are you guys getting all these frames. is there a good online spot or do you just have quality local places is what I mean.

I can't find anything easily accessible that jumps at me like Angels' for instance

Feedback?

Dita frames always look good on everyone else except me, oh well..

Similar style that I liked was Lever

I'm trying to find a pair of glasses like these in a similar light yellow colour...this Paul Smith model is seemingly discontinued, and my attempts to buy it online have failed.

Any ideas?

you really do walk a fine line between "super cool" or "dork" with crystal clear frames. depends on your personal style and how you pull it off. to a lesser extent, your face shape. i highly recommend you personally try on the clear frames in person before making your purchase. i once was super stoked on clear, but decided they ended up looking stupid on me.

can someone recommend me some rectangular-like frames with 56mm lenses...large head

i tried on the 56mm Dita Grand Reserves and they fit me perfectly but theyre not in my price range, so i have to settle for less

Does anybody know where I can get some sunglasses similar to these? I believe they are Oliver Peoples 523 Fight Club Ltd. Edition brown lenses with a gold frame. opfightclub.jpg

They don't have to be the exact pair but I like the idea of brown lenses with a gold frame.

finally recieved my strada's today.

heres a fit pic if anyone is interested. i didn't realise how much this style amplifies the size of my nose until now :o. the frames also sit a tad lower than i like but nothing to fret over. handmade in italy, etched engravings, smooth tortoise, thick but decieving due to the nice carved out curves and lines, moderately large hinges, consistently well made. the case is pretty nice as well with a soft furry touch (similar to suede).
