Can't find Tony Stark's sunglasses from Iron Man 3

Ah. Didn't realise there was a model number difference between the two. Looks like it's 7806 A for me then :)

Still not sure on where to get them from. Was leaning towards luxuryeyesite for the sake of getting everything in one order (with close to accurate lenses), but now thinking just get the glasses, and get the lenses separately from Tanya. Given that, my retailer options open up.

Anyone have experience with here.
They still aren't due for delivery till June like luxuryeyesite, but they've got 13% off (think that's a Friday 13th only thing), which saves ~$100AUD. Tempted.
Hi, I bought mine from them, about the same discount. No problem with them, and they’ll answer quickly to your questions but be ready to wait, and the delivery date can be pushed back a few months (at least that’s what happened to me), but I guess that’s because the demand of Flight 006 is still high. But they’re legit

Color looks great man! The only thing is matching up the curvature. The styles above tend to have flat lenses. The Copter's (being an aviator style), seem to have quite a curve on them.
It's always a bit of a gamble and a lot of trial and error ordering donors online, you never really know until you get them!

I know the purple gradient color on these isn't quite correct...

...but I'm just showing them as an example - I bought the clear versions of these when experimenting with my Bromley's, the curvature in the lenses matched perfectly...

Once cut in half, there was plently of lens width & height to play with, even for the Bromley's! (I should have done them in the blue or pink!:rolleyes:).

Maybe if you search for "oversize aviator sunglasses", it'll throw up plently of possible donors;), finding the right color though in 8000+ search results might take a while!!

Warby Parker Eaton's came today, (second hand with prescription lenses...tried them on and could almost make out the moon landing site).
20200314_155306.jpg 20200314_155250.jpg

So all serviced, tightened and cleaned up like brand new, with some new homemade light blue lenses...

...sourced from some fake huge 006's I had stored away in a box ..

Lenses are probably still a bit on the blue side, but hey!

Apologies for the t-shirt too!!

Make sure you call Otticanet before placing an order or you'll be waiting for nothing. They do this thing where they take orders but refund those who cant be supplied.

I called and got a slot but please dont disappoint yourself in waiting or you'll suffer like I did with 2 pairs of Tom Fords. :/

I have several pairs of those knock off frames for 99 cents each for parts. They saved my corsairs when I lost a screw for them and saved my All Ins when mine came in with popped nosepads. They have the silver metal nosepads but I'm thinking of swapping mine out for the gold ones just for style points.

Forgot to drop some pics of my Thorlabs LG3's...

Funny how they are sold as "orange", when they are a lot more red in person.

These were kindly posted by Wolfshire...

...but I'm having a lot of trouble finding these amongst the thousands of safety/welding glasses out there.

They do have specific looking details on them, any thoughts??

Tanya posted a pic of some yellow lensed versions on her instagram if it’ll help you out. I tried looking for them too to no avail :(

the key details are how the lensespoke above the brows and how they’re integrated as the hinges, plus adjustable arms but that’s pretty usual for safety glasses. Let us know if you find anything!

I was just stoked by the rpf shoutout, that was so cool! :D

Unrelated though I found the safety glasses from IM and they are 3M SX1000 safety glasses. Discontinued (because of course) but you may be able to find some on eBay.

For those interested in having a complete IM eyewear collection (inc. Thorlabs and 2 types of safety glasses) - might as well have them considering the Gunnar PPK's were used as safety glasses!!..
...possibly, the last piece of IM worn eyewear...

With the brightness turned right up, I think the safety glasses above are...
20200316_152305.png

...Uvex Protege S4200HS clear safety glasses.
(Also known as Honeywell Protege 1028130)

It looks like they come in a shorter angular lens shape too..

The longer lens version seems to match..
20200316_155625.png 20200316_152305.png

The nose bridge design matches, as does how the lenses come away from the frame at the sides (I think they call it a "floating" lens). The nose pads match up too.

They seem to come with a few different nose pad versions, shown here...

But the nose pad version below matches up..

As for out of production frames I just need the Shawfords and the RMs. I have them in the wrong color sadly. I snagged both those goggles and that new pair of Cortlands on Ebay. I swore they were listed multiple times so I hope I don't get scammed....

Did you not get your Cortlands yet?
