it is so relieving when rdj posts a new picture and he’s wearing polaroids, isn’t it
Exactly!!!
Which unsurprisingly led to...

...Okay, so not my best decision ever made, certainly an impulse "fingers crossed" purchase made on a hunch, but I've just ordered the 003 (HE) & the 09Q (M9)!!

I'm pre-prepared to get shot down in flames on this one!! o_O
I can always sell them on if it's not them, or if I don't really like them when they arrive.
At these Polaroid prices I had to have two!!

I've got the 003(HE) in the basket for checkout. I'm hesitating in case they're not the correct ones LOL.

Some Christmas presents in the form of Cutler and Gross eyewear...

New Cutler and Gross 1306 -03 51□23 145 reverse gradient sherry frame with etched "C&G" reverse gradient sherry lenses with a really neat flash mirror coating...
20211227_134247.jpg 20211227_134314.jpg 20211227_134526.jpg 20211227_134402.jpg 20211227_134640.jpg 20211227_134716.jpg 20211227_134826.jpg

The smaller 51mm lens size is adequately compensated by the larger 23mm bridge size and protruding temples.

Seen here at the "Avengers: Endgame" Cast Handprint Ceremony held at the TCL Chinese Theatre April 23rd 2019...

Also, here on this Avengers original six gameshow video...
20211227_143413.png 20211227_143348.png



I haven't seen pics of a pair posted on here, but I got some Cutler and Gross 1301 -06 (purple haze) 50□26 145...
20211227_134902.jpg 20211227_134934.jpg 20211227_134959.jpg 20211227_135158.jpg 20211227_135251.jpg 20211227_135228.jpg 20211227_135122.jpg

Seen at the "Avengers: Infinity War" premiere in Los Angeles April 23rd 2018...

Size wise, again, having the much larger bridge (26mm) totally makes up for the smaller lens width (50mm).
I was expecting a small frame, but I was pleasantly surprised as they turned out larger than I thought.
They might be rather rare, as I haven't seen them for sale anywhere in this particular color.
They are definitely more on the flamboyant side of stylish and not for the faint hearted.

I don't suppose though, that anyone in our collecting family would have any issues wearing a pair of these!!
Over time, we've become battle hardened and accustomed to sporting daring and outlandish frames!!:lol:

To help dampen down any hesitations in wearing them, I try to think of them as just orange and purple Flight .006's (still, you need to take a really deep breath before going out in them!!).
They really are right up there in Crazytown with the jazzy Cazal 352's!! o_O

Once the ongoing festivities have abated, I'll get around to putting some custom light purple/pink lenses in them, bit of a shame really, as the etched "C&G" purple flash stock lenses are really rather neat!!

nice picks as always! I've always liked the 1301, also in other colors, as you noticed I think we wore even more eccentric stuff in these years...

about the 1306, really nice frame. being a cutler and gross fan I recently got a pair of cg 1391 in pink with blue lenses, whose shape reminded me a bit of the ps cortlands, but also these ones

Very nice shades those C&G 1391!! ;)(y)

You're right, they look like the Cortlands!!

I think they also look like the offspring of the PS Cortland's and the pink OP Isba's!!

Hey everyone, with all that's going on in the world today, I wanted to take a minute to thank every last one of you for your help, friendship and brotherhood. It's easy to focus on the negative and lose focus on the things and people we care about the most. Today is our dear friend Jason's birthday! I wish I could call or text him and give him my well wishes, then I'm sure he'd sell me 2 or 3 frames in that same phone call :) so let's put on our favorite Initium frame and raise a glass to our friend Jason Kazmer! Cheers!! I miss you brother! And to my RPF family, I love you all, cheers to you all!

Okay, so I've been looking even closer at the very blurry images of the front view of these Polaroids.
20211229_142407.png 20211229_144146.png
It's super difficult trying to ID a frame with these poor images and it has been really bugging me not being really sure that they are the Polaroid PLD6162/s.


It's still purely speculation at this point, but I think they may actually be Polaroid PLD6111/s 51□18 140. The temple arms match up on this model also.

Compared to the PLD6162/s, the shape of the PLD6111/s seems to match up just that bit better to the blurry images of the frame fronts..
20211231_124249.png

PLD6111/s...
20211231_114407.png

There seems to be the following colors...

7ZJ (UC)...
20211231_114353.png

HJV (HE)...
20211231_114407.png

807 (M9)...
20211231_114253.png
IPR (C3)...
20211231_171155.png

It's still all guesswork, but I'm thinking the HJV (HE) and the 7ZJ (UC) may be in the shortlist of contenders??

As I said earlier, the colors on this image might not be accurate...
20211231_122151.png
I'm pretty sure the "Footprint Coalition" logo looks like this...
20211231_120212.png
We know that RDJ likes to color match eyewear to his outfits (or vice versa), so maybe (just maybe) he went for the green lens 7ZJ (UC)??
That said, unless there are reflections on the frame, are those havana "striations" on the lower part of the frame? - HJV (HE)??
20211231_123948.png

Either way, my PLD6162's look like they might be going back...as almost predicted "shot down in flames" Lol:oops::rolleyes:

Found some images of the 7ZJ (UC) being worn...
20211231_165846.png 20211231_170526.png
And with the color removed...
20211231_170335.png 20211231_170557.png

Flipped...
20211231_170833.png
...and put alongside for an approximate frame shape and lens transparency comparison...
20211231_181234.png

The IPR (C3) worn and made black and white...
20211231_170417.png 20211231_170443.png

The 807 (M9) do look quite dark when worn...
20211231_174647.png 20211231_180821.png

Can't find a pic of the HJV (HE) being worn, but here they are in black and white...
20211231_114407.png 20211231_171601.png

I guess the color choice is just down to personal preference, or to be more exact, personal guessference!!!

Anyway, enough detective work for this year, I'm off to a party, once I've decided which frames to wear!! :cool: - I'll have to take 2 years worth of frames out tonight!! Lol

Have a great New Year everyone, all the best for 2022!!

Happy new year guys! I have a New Year's present for you all.... a bunch of new frame pics!
I'll probably space them out over time so we don't get overloaded.

Here's one from the Michael Dukakis Presidential Campaign "Vote '88" - October 8, 1988 at Los Angeles International Airport
I think they are Persol 69269.

and one mystery pair: arrriving at 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' on April 23, 2018, kind of like OP Cary Grant, but I couldn't find a purple color for those so maybe a lookalike?

The last time RDJ was actually filming a full movie was way back in 2018 doing Dolittle and late reshoots for Endgame (little cameo stuff doesnt count). And before that, the last time he was the ‘leading man’ (marvel film) was 2013 Iron man 3 and (non marvel) 2014 The Judge.

Covid has really disrupted filming since he should have likely been a leading actor in a 2020 and 2021 film of some-type. Instead hes going to be in a supporting role in the 2023 Christopher Nolan movie (which should be great).

Yes, this is why I have delved all the way back to the 80s here. The early 90s often does not look that great to me now, there were a lot of tiny oval frames that kinda all look the same but I pulled some pics just be thorough. I used to not like big frames but I guess my tastes have changed (or now that I'm older I don't feel the need for my frames to be unobtrusive and fade into the background.)

I just don't see the Havana striations in the arms... I think it's the M9 or UC...

Yeah, I flipped a coin and took the plunge on a pair of the 7ZJ (UC) due any day now.
Same green lens (UC) as the PLD6115/s 1ED (UC)...
20220105_094758.png

I also mildly based my decision (crazy I know o_O) that RDJ is going "green" with the Footprint Coalition.

There's plenty of great priced 6111's out there, so if better images do emerge revealing exactly what they are and I have to buy some more, it's not the end of the world!! - Although, that said, all of these plastic frames can't be doing the environment any good!!:lol:

Well that was some speedy shipping!!...
20220105_145737.jpg 20220105_145640.jpg 20220105_145902.jpg
Same pic in black and white...
20220105_153739.jpg
Using a pic of an actual pair instead of a product shot, the shade of light grey tone on the temple tip and Polaroid logo seems to match up pretty well...
20220105_161255.png

Brand new, mine didn't arrive with a case though, just a red drawstring bag and a jazzy neck cord...
20220105_151303.jpg

Alongside the PLD6115/s 1ED (UC)...
20220105_150253.jpg

...And the PLD6162/s 09Q (M9) which arrived too...
20220105_150120.jpg 20220105_150035.jpg

The PLD6162/s are still fairly new additions to the Polaroid range, so there's still a chance they might make an appearance yet!!

Just weighing up if I want the 6111's in 807(M9) and HJV(HE) as well.:unsure:

Mind if I ask where you ordered? Smart Buy Glasses took my order a couple days ago and now says they won't be in stock until Jan 17th...
Grumble...
