There are similar styles in a lot of collections at the moment. Have a look at Garrett Leight and Oliver Peoples.

I don't know specifically but they look similar to the Labrabbit Dancen model:

Make a statement for sure but completely unflattering on almost everyone.

Does anyone make plastic framed glasses with adjustable nose pads other than lindberg optical? glasses without nosepads are such a gamble to buy online.

Alternatively you can have nose pads drilled on. I've used a company called Dunrose optical a few times and have had good results. £17 all in delivered.

That's such bullshit. Round gold frames are an absolute classic, tasteful, simple and look good on almost EVERYONE. You've just been brainwashed by marketing. Harsh, squared-off overdesigned frames that seem popular look terrible on 99% of people.

I've been wearing my goldies for about 4 years now and they work so well as everyday glasses, I saw Kubozuka wearing em, had to get em. He started the trend in Japan, I'm pretty sure I started the current trend in Western stores.

They've been around forever though, from the 1940s to 80s and 90s rappers to today. Just an eyewear staple, don't know how you can call them a "statement". Such complete bullshit.
