Proper Cool the one thing i didnt like was the skull on the temple but im guessing you had nothing to do with that.
Might try the Night watch this year as I cant find the others.

They wanted their logo, so my hand was forced really, but I was responsible for making it a metal detail. I think it's necessary on a brand like that really.

Didn't do this year's ones, no, stopped working for that company 2 years ago.

San, you should probably go for sharp-ish rectangular frames, ie wider than they are deep (not square) if you have a round face. From memory you have a "fleshy" (Laughing out loud) oblong face rather than a true round one though, no?

Try this.

Yeah, they just don't look right to me. I have never seen (genuine) discounted Persol frames anywhere.

yeh, the David Clulow store stocks 'em at Bicester. If memory serves me correctly, the 714, McQueen foldy ones were around £140.

One of the sites on your list at the top of the page Andy has them at a similar discount so think I my cop 'em from there

Not really, net-a-porter has the biggest choice I've seen.

The Night On Earth ones from last year? I think they're long gone.
