Super useful as always dude! I think the problem with the diors isn’t so much the width being a 53 (like Tods) because I’m sure the neymars are 53 too and they’re fine!! It’s the vertical length that ruins me I think! caus if they’re not wide but longer vertically and closer to the point of my nose then they’re fine!! Do ma want favour if you have both and send a pic of the diors with the tods below so I can compare!!BTW, the Initium Concept 2 "oversize" version of 61□15 148, is the closest to the screen accurate Roy Tower Concept 2 SIG size of 61□14 140.
If you are not entirely happy with the fit of the Dior's and are after the Tod's 0199...please bear in mind the Tod's have the same lens width and bridge size (53□17) as the Diors, but with the thin rhodium frame, don't have the thicker almost "Wayfarer" style frame protruding temples as the Dior's, so they will have a much smaller overall frame visual width and fit than the Dior's.
Speaking of the Tod's 0199...I just recently picked up another pair of Tod's 0199 (currently en route), this time the blue lens version.
After looking at the NBA trailer screencaps and looking at both my versions, I thought I would ask the question: Which version is this with custom light purple lenses, the green lens frame or the blue lens frame?

I suppose it doesn't really make a whole lot of difference here and maybe I'm being a bit nit-picky, as the "trailer only" scenes are over in a flash anyway.
I know some have the 18V blue and some have the 18N green, but in the past, we've went back over and revisted frames and reevaluated our findings, sometimes to uncover hidden or previously unseen details.
As we all know product shots can be quite misleading sometimes in how the colors are represented, as opposed to how they look in person. Product shots can often be lighter in appearance.
The obvious only difference between the two shiny rhodium frames, besides the stock lens colors, are the "rope arm detail" colors.
The blue 18V having a 3 color rope detail (dark brown, dark navy blue and army/olive green)...

The green 18N having a 1 color rope detail (light brown)...

In the following pics in particular, (despite the resolution not being great), the color looks "uniform" in that it looks like a lighter, solid and only single color area. There doesn't seem to be any darker 3 color diamond pattern sections within the leather...

The 18V rope detail dark blue and green sections, seem to run more prominently down the side, with the "dark brown" noteably running mainly and less visibly along the "top"...

I'm wondering if the darker 3 color rope arm from the 18V blue lens version (even based on a lighter product shot), would be able to look like as light brown and as "plain & even" as this??...

Anyway, I thought I'd throw it out there for discussion, it would be great to hear everyone's thoughts on this!!
Does anyone have better resolution pics, or is able to screenshot a clearer and definitive view of these rope arms?
Here's the 53mm Dior Black Tie 137 and the Tod's 0199...Super useful as always dude! I think the problem with the diors isn’t so much the width being a 53 (like Tods) because I’m sure the neymars are 53 too and they’re fine!!

You must rule at playing "spot the difference"There are two types of black ties. 53 17 140 and 53 17 145. The width of the bridge pattern is wider at 140. Tanya's selection looks like 140 types. It can be inferred from the black font in Tanya's photo.
