Is this from Ironman 3? I thought they were Ray Ban 3029 Outddorsman?My Rayban 3025 90644A arrived.
That was quite a relief as they becoming discontinued and more difficult to find in stock. Although as we know they're not the actual frame from IM3 they're a pretty close representation, the lens colour is really close too.
The actual quality of the Rayban is not so amazing, I would say my Police S8299M "feel" better in hand but I am happy with them, they do look great on and the evolve lenses are nice.
I agree. I think there is some more hidden story. There is a vintage Levi's jeans with the buckle back cut off, such an episode, IM3 Ray-Ban is still mysterious.I think you're totally right Sake, the smaller gap between the nose bridge and top bar match up much better. It has to be the much older "first release" version like you say.
Also that 58mm size always looked right to me, as the 62mm IMO would look rather large on RDJ. There's no getting away from it that the 62mm are a big pair of aviators, which was my initial reaction when my 62mm RB3029 first arrived ages ago.
This is why I later decided that for my IM3 frames, I would make a hybrid pair. It was Zeingal who originally suggested this back in 2019 and it was a great idea. Where is Zeingal BTW??
I used the frame front of the 58mm RB3030 (+ clipped off the sweat bar) and removed the stock 3030 cable temples...

...And replaced them with the straight temple arms from the 62mm RB3029...

I also put in custom lenses as I always considered that some of the Outdoorsman lenses out there were too light yellow IMO.
I think I'm going to consider detaching the nose bridge and siting it a few mm higher up like yourself!! -Great idea!!
This may actually be easier and a lot cheaper than sourcing "first release" vintage Outdoorsman, which probably go for one hefty price tag!!
It does still point however towards the IM3 screen used versions having a high probability of being hybrids though, as if they are the "first release" Outdoorsman in 58mm, the screen used frames have straight temples with black end tips.
You can just see the temple tips for a micro second as he whips them off...

Maybe a good logical explanation would be that the production crew or wardrobe dept. swapped the cable temples on the 58mm Outdoorsman frame for straight "standard" temples, purely for the purpose and "cool factor" of whipping them off at speed for the scene, something that would be really difficult and awkward with cable temples.
Maybe the scene was tried once with cable temples and after a near ear loss incident (Lol) a quick modification had to be quickly made to the frame.
The solution to this ongoing riddle may just be as simple as that!!
Maybe, just maybe!!...
So I took another stab at this... noticed the zipper pulls on the jacket have the same logo and a larger one on the sleeve. Blurry due to video but I think it's a butterfly in that circle! Couldn’t find it out yet but it's a clue!
I believe it’s MatchlessSo I took another stab at this... noticed the zipper pulls on the jacket have the same logo and a larger one on the sleeve. Blurry due to video but I think it's a butterfly in that circle! Couldn’t find it out yet but it's a clue!
That's the only image I could find as well!
Awesome find!!Still haven't got the model name/number yet, but found more images with evidence of 3 more lens color versions for this black frame.
The images are models wearing them at the new Matchless Star Wars collection launch at Sexy Fish in London 4th Novemver 2015...
Light green and gradient purple/grey...

And it looks like it could be the ones we're looking for, worn by the model in the middle...

Awesome work my friend!!!Wow, just found them!!
The frame themselves are LGR Comoros black 01
They are a steel frame and 57□17 140.
Definitely a collab frame then with LGR and Matchless. Matchless just added their "wings M logo"....

Unbelievably they are the same LGR frames worn by Tom Cruise in Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation, but he wore the white version...Who knew!!?!...
