Granted about the style being different but you can get them from UO for around £85-90 at the moment.

Is that a good price for the 3008s Andy?

I have never actually tried a pair of Persols on though. Build quality looks great from what I can make out. Are the optics worth the extra moolah?

Got a pair of the black folding 714s last week, love them. They are big but they're perfect for days when you're out all afternoon and night, can just stick them in your shirt pocket or whatever later on and not worry about losing them.

These are huge, like 54mm. I looked at buying a pair just after christmas, local shop in Brighton (Bromptons) has them for about £240 I think but they are massive. They only come in this size, whereas the standard 714's come in 52 or 54. I got a pair of 714's, size 52 dark tortoise with havana lenses. IMO they are still a bit on the large size. Main difference between the Mcqueens and the standard 714,s is the folding mechanism. I have to wrap the cleaning cloth around them before putting them in the case as the silver metal pieces rub and can mark. The Mcqueens are of vintage design and fold differently thus avoiding this issue. Overall they are lovely shades and you won't see many other people rocking them unlike raybans etc. I would recommend trying them before buying as they are big, even if you do find a good online deal.

Thanks for the info but the McQueen ones were for a mate and I dont think he is going to cop. They had them in Selfridges Manchester for anyone looking for them. Dont think the blue lenses look right though.

Ordered some 714 folding from UO to try, hopefully they will be the right size for my face.

I got a pair of 649 last year and the quality of the optics is superb. Noticeably superior to anthing else I've got (Ray Ban, Oliver Peoples etc)

To be honest that's not a great more than the UO pairs WITH codes used.

Good spot!

Estimated delivery is in a month though, and Im sure it can be longer if they 'extend' the sale? On the other hand will there be any need for sunglasses before June Laughing out loud

Is £135 a good price for polarised 714s? Figured it was a steal on Achica but just been doing some googling and it doesn't seem to be the case.
