They're nice. Not something you'd wear for everyday use like running errands. Something for when you're dressed appropriately & out and about.

Can anyone recommend any Custom Japanese Acetate eyeglasses makers?  I'm interested in a frame from Cutler and Gross, but for the price I think I might rather just have something similar made custom.

What degree of short-sightedness/far-sightedness do people consider getting glasses? Lately, I have found my eyesight to be not as good as before.

Stupid question but what brand(s) make glasses similar to these? Also anyone know a good place with quality frames in Montreal?

Does anyone on here own glasses with a clear frame? I´d like to know how they look after a while, I´m concerned about sweat stains and all that stuff.

sweat stains would depend on the used material but as far as my experience reaches there should be nothing to worry about. 

The one thing I would be more concerned about is reflection or distraction by incident lighting, due to the transparent frame. This is a knock out criteria for me, but I have some poor eyesight.

Any have experience with http://www.lookmatic.com? Drunken friend caught me with a solid right to the temple and need new glasses.

Was looking at Tart Arnels or FDRs but 65-95$ for replicas sounds way better than 35,000 yen for just Tart frames + 1.5k for examination and lenses locally.

Is there a huge difference in quality between taking the empty frames to an optician here and getting lenses put it vs. getting a prescription / pupillary measurement here and sending it to the online shop? Cost would be way different (65$ for frames only + ~150$ for examination and lenses here vs. 95$ for the frames shipped with prescription lenses in)

-basically, if you send an accurate prescription will online glasses shops give you good lenses or are they cutting too many corners?

i bought some really nice tart arnels replica. i read they are basicly the real thing which you won't find anywhere else. handmade from italian accetate with functional rivets. i paid around 150$ shipped to europe but they might be more expensive in the US since they usually only sell to retailers. check out dolabany arnold. the website doesn't do them any justice. i can take a couple of pictures if you like.

for the lenses i went to an optician chain that would test my eyes for free but suggested 300$ lenses eventhough i said i wouldn't need to wear them often at all. i then took their test results and went to a local small optician and explained my needs. he offered me some lenses that he said where good but that the coating might not hold up as long. those lenses where around 65$ (both) and i was able to pick them up just 2 days later. i guess it's worth trying to find a smaller optician that doesn't try to sell you uber expensive lenses

i wear them more often now than i first planned to - cause they are so nice

Good choice. They suit you nicely.

 

Regarding the fit, after the Thom Browne x Dita 701, the SL Bold 5 are the ones that fit me the best, but I thought they felt a bit cheap (correct me i'f i'm wrong)... But they aren't wide, so it's perfect for me.

 

I need to try on some more Tom Fords, but I'd like to go with either TB, Céline, TF or maybe SL...

 

The wire arms of the TB x Dita add a nice touch, imo. Every frame is perfect. Even the golden rounded sunglasses with yellow lenses.

i think the thickness of these gives an added perception to quality. but at the end of the day, you'd be crazy to spend more than 300 bucks for a pair. celine i think are made under safilo as well. i'd assume the quality will be exactly like slp.

 

it seems like you're geared more towards dita frames. i think any other will just leave you un-satisfied.

shuron_ronsir_revelation_eyeglasses_sh-r

 

Just bought a pair of Shuron Revelations -- this post is less about the glasses (which while extremely well manufactured are pretty low-key) and more about the company because holy shit Shuron's customer service is out of the world. I emailed them asking about two models (Ronsir and Revelation), and they ended up sending me 4 pairs of frames + clip on sunglasses as a sample with 2 day shipping. Also talked me through the exact treatments their lens get, their lens manufacturers, what lens would best suit my situations, etc. Still on the fence about how I like the frames with my facial structure, etc. but definitely 10/10 on customer service. Great company.

bought a pair of effector fuzz-s off yjp. these are bigger than i expected, or maybe i'm just used to smaller glasses. the regular fuzz frames would probably look gigantic on my face. still deciding whether or not to go put prescription lenses in them, they feel a bit awkward but i figure that'll go away the more i wear them.

 

sorry for bad pic and huge phone

I find all Effector glasses to be unwearable, they're far too bulky, heavy, and loud.  They barely sit properly on your nose because of the shape of the bridge even if you're Asian.  I wish they would tone it down because their basic silhouettes are very nice and the quality is great for the price.

I don't think they look bad...maybe a little hipster-ish because of the thickness of the frames but if you like them then keep them.

@kiya: about them sitting on the bridge, i was really confident they'd fit me perfectly or at least decently with Effector being a Japanese brand so they'd understand the whole Asian nose bridge thing but yeah, spent a bit of time re-adjusting them while trying them on. i do like how substantial they feel. my older pairs of glasses feel flimsy as hell to me now.

 

@itsbenhere: i don't mind the look of them, i actually like the look of them. only thing is getting used to wearing them haha.

was at a local shop for an hour crushing on these two... trying to go out there, honestly....

 

but these might be too heavy.

 

the other choice was Shuron's Ronstrong, but those are completely in the opposite direction.

Thoughts?
