I do not really know, but he looks cute Laughing out loud . I always recommend vision express for those who wear prescription glasses, as they have a really nice designer range that will make you look cool! I hate boring glasses.

Andy, or anybody else, what do you know about Lanvin sunglasses? These are at my local TK for £60 and look pretty good. Seemed a bit pricey for TK sunnies though


The model is lv4141 but I can only find them on a couple of sites. One being zappos and they're $304. Another site said they're Lanvin by L'Amy America, if that means anything?

L'Amy Group is a French company, one of the biggest eyewear producers in France, and also one of the oldest. L'Amy America is just the American division of L'Amy Group.

As far as I know all their models are made in France, so they should be good quality. Usually around the £150 to £200 mark.

They did have the Lanvin licence until last year certainly, but I think it might have gone to another company for 2010. Not sure though.

Might have a pair of Rayban Caravans for sale, 'size' 55, for those of you looking for cheap(er) pairs in this thread.

I ordered them 5 weeks ago and couldn't deal with waiting when the sun came out, so bought some different ones, and they've just e-mailed me saying they should arrive tomorrow so can't just cancewl the order.

Pm me if interested, they're these ones

I'm slightly suspicious about why they're so cheap. Does the 2-ply / 3-ply thing actually mean they're made from (high quality) plywood rather than solid wood?

These ones are made from actual solid wood, no idea on prices though.

They're lovely, best in that style I've tried on and know a few people who love them, if you have the funds and want some aviators get them. GET THEM. Please.

I would, but the aviators needs to be a bit angular for my face… like these ones
