I have had a pair of similar frames nearly three times before this - a couple of pairs of period correct frames from a Los Angeles vintage boutique (m freedom) and another from Oliver peoples. These are by far the sturdiest and cleanest looking of the bunch. The tortoise frame is beautiful and the hinges feel SOLID. The detailing gives it a little edge, but is subtle enough to dress up with a something a little more formal. Will definitely be purchasing again. The hardest part is deciding which pair will be my NEXT!
Love these shades! Quality is great and so is this style. I bought the black pair last summer and wanted them in brown too. They are versatile and can go with any outfit. A good pair for everyday use.
