ya thats the tent level I think 100% are dark sunglasses like classic ray bans dark. It might differ at different eyeglasses stores but they usually have sample lenses. I always get mine as dark as they will go but my mom hates changing from prescription glasses to sunglasses so she combined them

Which of these three do you like best for everyday wear? I know the first no-name ones look great on me.

Thank you both. I'm going to go for #1, pretty sure. The Chanels are pretty - and they have some other lovely black styles, one with sort of black-shimmery sides is pretty cool, and they have some with beige sides that are pretty. But the shape and price of #1 just works better!

very cute! Love that shape. Can be hard to pull off but so lovely when it is done.

I have pretty much decided on the Prism's but since I'm torn on the style, I'm going to wait until I'm back in London in two weeks and try them on at Brown's and then order online the color combo I like best.

cbcb, would get the third one ...

i'm too currently looking for glasses (first hunt online, then shopping irl) ... my eyes are hurting me atm (hadn't worn my glasses, the way i should, for years ... and it's getting dangerous to this point, now ! really dangerous !) ...
i'm 3/10 for right eyes ......... and 4/10 for left eyes ........

oops !

anyway it's complicated ...

Quote:
how long can glasses last? i want to have these forever.
forever, if they are good glasses !

right now - because of my eyes hurting - i'm wearing a pair i own for like ... 5 yrs. And I still have my first pair of glasses ...... and they are like 10 yrs old.

I don't understand how people are choosing glasses that don't fit their face, though ...
It's like choosing a beautiful dress the wrong size !

Greetings all. Bit of a sad story, then my question.

Was in Vegas in April. Had a new Rx for 6 months, but couldn't find the frames I wanted for sunglasses. Was thinking Bvlgari, but the selection in Washington (State) is limited, and nearly nobody would sell you the frames & do the Rx. So walking by an Optical between the Mandalay Bay and Luxor, I stopped, found the PERFECT pair first try (though I tried 9 others to be sure), and bought them on the spot.

Fast forward almost 4 months, I'm at a work event, have been up since 5am or so, and just exhausted. We are bowling after dinner, and then pack up. I help someone take some gear to their car, then head up to my room and crash. Next morning when I look for my SUPER expensive sunglasses... gone. Tried asking anyone and everyone, the hotel, bellboys, security, restaurants, you name it... they were simply gone.

So I've been back at work for a month. We are short handed, so I haven't had ANY vacation time. And I'm overtired, exhausted, and want my sunglasses back. But where to go, and is there anyplace I might get the frames and lenses for less than Optica in LV?

Have the exact part number for the Bvlgari frames, still have my perscription and know exactly what I want. No AR, just a dark tint and a good lense. So is there anyplace someone here can recommend?

Hi there...I'm trying to ID these sunglasses worn at the premiere of Inglorious Basterds by Brad:

My optician checked with Dita and they said its not one of their designs.

Any help ID-ing these would be much appreciated!

Thanks!
