This reckons they're Linda Farrow Luxe 71, but I'm not convinced, the top line doesn't look right and hers don't seem to have the metal detail at the hinge. The top line looks more like the Luxe 215, but the temple shape is different on those.

She's worn Thierry Lasry and Retrosuperfuture before, but I don't think it's either of them in this case.

Anyone know where I can get a replacement arm for a pair of Rayban Wayfarers? Checked with Rayban and they only repair within 2 years of purchase, but I'm outside of that now.

Anyone know the cheapest place to buy Shuron sunglasses - after a pair of the tortoise Sidewinders. Cheers.

Andy, I've just found a pair of frames quite cheap - how much to get a pair of quality sunglass lenses put into them? Cheers.

The cheapest place to buy Shurons is usually direct from the Shuron website, as they will sell direct to the public if you ask them.

It depends what you mean by "quality" sun lenses really, as it's quite subjective. Do you want branded lenses (eg Zeiss) or generic? Do you want prescription sunnies, do you want any coatings (eg anti-reflection), do you want them to be polarised?

Anyway, I've updated the links at the top of the page to show some of the companies that offer a reglazing service.

Do you reckon branded lenses are worth the extra? Thanks for your help.

According to my (honest) optician friend, yes. For example branded lenses are usually more scratch-resistant than unbranded generic lenses.

Anyone has a pair of Barton Perreira's? Saw it in local store here and had some nice models, not cheap though(like 380 EUR) - they were made in Japan.

Ordered some Tod's sunnies off vente-privee. Only £45. Are they any good? Won't arrive for a while but wondered if anyone has any knowledge of the quality. Look nice.

They're made by Marcolin, the same company that makes TomFord and Diesel amongst others, so I'd imagine the quality will be a bit higher than the majority of big designer label brands but nothing amazing. Haven't seen them up close though.
