Accidentally sat on my glasses and the arms broke off. On Andy's tip sent them to Seamus at https://www.theopticalworkshop.com/ and he did a wonderful repair. Would definitely recommend.

Who makes LV glasses (assuming they don't make them themselves)?

Supposedly they make them themselves but they have a joint enterprise with Marcolin (Thélios).

Those are pretty smart to be fair. Nice to know they aren't a Luxottica job!

Like these mate. Mind me asking what model they are and what size? I have some Moscot Lemtosh in tortoise but find the bridge slightly too large. Looking for something similar but slightly narrower.

They're Oliver Peoples x The SoloIst from S/S '11 https://hypebeast.com/2010/12/takahiromiyashitathesoloist-x-oliver-peoples-eyeglasses

There are a few on Japan auctions https://auctions.yahoo.co.jp/search/search?auccat=&tab;_ex=commerce&ei;=utf-8&aq;=-1&oq;=≻_i=&fr;=auc_top&p;=oliver+peoples+the+soloist&x;=0&y;=0

Also have a similar pair of Oliver Peoples x The SoloIst sunglasses from 2014, which are available ^

Thanks for that mate. What size are the ones you have? Seen they go for silly money on Grailed….direct from Japan would be my only chance.

You can get self-adhesive clear silicone pads that stick onto the frame in the bridge to narrow it down a bit if that's an option.

Cubitts Wicklow are a similar shape but a bit smaller (their smallest is showing as out of stock at the moment though).

Thanks for that Andy. I don’t suppose you have a link for the silicon pads do you? I love the Lemtosh and the 46 fits my face well. But my eyes aren’t centred enough. Eyes too close together!

Not for specific ones, no, sorry. There are quite a lot of Amazon, I'd just be guided by the reviews.
