Lenses used for rimless frames such as silhouettes must be made of non-normal lenses such as polycarbonate, which is safe and unlikely to crack if the lens is attached. If you dye with polycarbonate, it will be twice as expensive as usual.
Everyone thinks that rimless frame lenses are the same material as regular frame lenses, but because it's important to protect your eyes, you need a material such as polycarbonate. Vonzipper often uses polycarbonate for regular frames as well. It depends on the manufacturer.

I'm sorry if it's unnecessary information

For those, this scene will be helpful. Since that scene was shot with the green sheet in the background, the green element is reflected in the lens. The non-synthesized footage from this studio looks dark blue.
I took this the other day so you guys can get an idea of how the tint on my Silhouette look with skin tone behind the lenses.
It was a pretty sunny day, there was plenty of light in the room so taking that into account in comparison with the image of RDJ which appears to be in slightly dimmer lighting I think the guys at Lensology did a really excellent job.

I hope this helps :)

Still think this pic is the most accurate pic we’re gona get! It’s from an article about the glasses being in the movie etc, so think the glasses might be the actual ones worn…

No problem. I absolutely love mine, they're definitely in my top 5 of my collection.

It's always great to see a frame from a few years ago making a reappearance and being worn again (considering how many he must have)...Garrett Leight Preston just a few days ago at a Los Angeles Dodgers game on 30th April 2022...

Either he rotates his eyewear in some random fashion, or just goes back to personal favourites every so often.

Now I'm off to order that New Era 2022 batting practice 59FIFTY fitted white cap...;)

Any thoughts on these?
My initial idea looking at the detailed decoration was Oliver Peoples Finne (probably because I own a pair) but I don't think the shape is quite right.
Still, it's made me love my Finne even more :)

I have been burning up my credit card with some good buys lately! Have to do a bulk post in a bit. I'm at the point where maybe I should sell off some of my trade goods/extras just to make space!

Been working on Garrett leights. Finally got the champagne Grayson. Dita 006. Polaroid 6115 green and yellow also the gray rectangular Polaroid. Some Garrett leight prestons in an alternate color, gunnar vayper.

Off topic... also OP Clifton in silver. Pierce Brosnan wore these with a purple gradient in one movie and I can totally get buy in from the Mrs on this because she is a committed Brosnan fangirl as she is a longtime Bond fan!

So just about to put some customs in my Bvlgari 5006 195/71 (from p.285), when I found another pair. Now I have them in hand to inspect, I've been able to confirm the correct pair from the Iron Man premiere.

Bvlgari 5006 103/11...
20220518_093951.jpg 20220518_093705.jpg 20220518_093837.jpg 20220518_093728.jpg 20220518_095123.jpg

As opposed to my other pair, the frame is silver not gunmetal and the arms are gloss black not matt.
20220518_094928.jpg

The lenses are a dark gradient grey with the very slightest hue of purple in there too, which confirms the lenses in this pic aren't custom, but the stock lenses...

I never noticed before, but "Bvlgari" is etched on the top of both of the lenses.

Homework…
Okay, homework, Lol...Handed in late!! :oops:
I do hope my ensuing detention will be something more like the Breakfast Club!!:cool:


It's a bit difficult to be 100% certain here...

Found a few more pics (which are worse quality)...

After an "intense search fest", I've found a frame where that little white plastic section on the centre of the bridge matches up, as does the chunky side metal hinges at the temples. The remaining longer part of those quite wide side arms appear metal or silver in the pics, but it may be just a reflection from the gloss plastic...
20220520_090532.jpg


Not sure exactly which colorway, but I think they might be Persol 2365-S (59□13 135)...;)

20220520_083116.jpg


I think I can rule out the "all brown" and "all black" variants below, as they don't appear to have gradient lenses nor that plastic centre bridge detail in "white"...
20220520_085251.jpg 20220520_085235.jpg

I think it's obvioulsy between the 2 colorways with gradient lenses, the silver/black pair...
20220520_083156.jpg 20220520_083219.jpg

Or my hunch is that it's this havana pair...

I hope I didn't get an "F" on my homework, Lol :lol:
