The originals were 55-15, with the lenses being 40mm deep. I could potentially go a bit bigger (no homo) but it would be more like 57 than 60. For 60 they'd have to be wraparound or the frames would be too wide for most people.

Laughing out loud Quite big! Im a big guy and evidences were the best fitting shades for me, and they were 65 i believe.

57 would probably be good too though Andy. Rough estimate on cost?

I think the last batch were £130 optical / £150 sun for GJs but that was 5 years ago. I'd need to price it up with a few factories but £150 should still leave enough for it to be worth my while doing.

That's for high quality acetate frames hand made in Europe (would probably be France or Italy) which would normally retail for around £300.

Gotta say, £150 is a bargain. I've worn mine nearly every day for 6 years and they're built like a tank.

After a pair of Illesteva Leonard sunnies, does anyone have a pair for sale?
Or can anyone point me to a pair for less than the £160 RRP?
Cheers!

Down right now, but http://www.pretavoir.co.uk/ have the Leonard for around £128. Think they have the most comprehensive stock in the UK as I couldn't find anyone with more options when I was searching for some.

Also Nordstrom had a deal on them for £88 when I looked a few days ago. Came to about £115 shipped to the UK with duties cost included.
