Weak… thanks for the info though. Would definitely need to try them on first in that case. Dont think anywhere in Manchester has them.

Dita are the bollocks, fantastic quality.

They were mentioned on here a few times when they re-released the Cazal 902.

these are really cheap for under 30 quid and look well nice to me. got to be worth it as a pair to just leave in the motor (or in the side compartment of the rucksack for on the bendy bus).
shit hot 3d website as well. knew nicking them glasses from when i went to see Up would come in handy one day. check it.

The problem with cheap ones is they are actually bad for your eyes (an optician told me)

FML i knew it had to happen sometime, i bought some cheap ones from the highstreet last summer for a holiday, this year thought i'd get the real thing.

Although I didnt buy a pair last year, I'm in the exact same boat and will definitely pass on them.

Bollocks. Cheap lenses could be bad for your eyes, but anything that conforms to British and European Standards is fine, and without conforming to British and European Standards they can't be sold here.

The higher the price you pay, the more likely you will have higher quality lenses which are better for your eyes, but there's no guarantee.

Yeah I designed last year's ones. I prefer the Night Watch ones to the Night Porter ones. Never wear them though, keeping them for my "archive" Laughing out loud
