      Had these for about two years now, still love them. They're very light but not quite as light as the silhouettes.

      Rudy Project Rydon, Silver Multicolor Orange, original lenses replaced with ImpactX Photochromic Clear TRANSPARENT / GREY (Luminous Transmittance 18 / 78%) lenses, RX insert added.

      Well that was a mouthful.

      I got a pair of metal Ray-bans rx'ed. Lens tint was originally G-15 which I loved, so I got them replaced with Essilor's gray green plastic ones.

      I had to get glasses a few months back. It took a little while for me to remember to put them on every day, but I like the style and I'm happy with my choices.

      I picked this pair up as well as another, but I don't have any pics of the other pair, at the moment.

      Ive had the Havana browns for about 5 years, but just found that they've been discontinued. I opted to retire them earlier this month in persuit of some mod-esc RBs.

      I ended up drunkenly breaking the arm on my vintage thick black frames so I went to America's Best and got a snazzy 2 pair for $70. Found a replacement pair to the ones I broke and a pair of "old man glasses". I figured since they were free, why not get something ridiculous.

      I also snagged a coupon deal from FAB for a pair of frames&lenses from Lookmatic. still trying to decide which frames I want to get. http://www.lookmatic.com/

      If you can get me the model number, I can try to get you a replacement temple. I have a part time job at an eyewear shop.

      I really like the glasses in 'A Scanner Darkly' that Robert Downey Jr. was wearing. I can't find them anywhere.

      New pair of glasses bump! Oakley Transistor (in Livestrong colors, with Essilor lenses again... this time it's the Crizal Airwear Forte UV series).




      http://youtu.be/eQheA_5zvtA

      After seeing this video I had to try a pair. Found one and they look even better in real life. Unfortunately, they are a bit expensive.

      Ok, let's be honest, they are very expensive. They are the most expensive frame I have ever bought. I guess part of it is the brand and the other part is the material - titanium alloy with memory effect. However, they seem to be worth it, they are so light and fit exceptionally well. They are also quite inconspicuous when worn - the yellow "unobtanium" ear socks are completely hidden by hair most of the time, the black frame is very thin and the yellow logos are tiny.

      My next objective will be another pair of the Ducati Red ones, to be made into rx sunglasses.

      I have those in tortoise shell and totally agree, these really stay snug on your head. Have another pair of glasses that are always sliding down my nose and i find myself constantly pushing them back up. Talk about annoying!

      I really wanted these but I could not get over the $400+ price tag. I understand the name costs something but $400 was too much for rubber frames with a little metal.

      Probably cheaper now.
