    Much like our Neckties! thread, I thought I'd start a new thread to discuss the new line of replica glasses we've started. Here you'll find discussion of works-in-progress as well as a place to post your wants for future projects.

    We've recently finished our10th Doctor Who "Tennant" glasses and sunglasses:

    Currently, we're finishing up on our 11th Doctor "Smith" Glasses:

    We've already started production on our Kingsman Glasses (which will be available in tortoise shell, black and tortoise shell with sun lenses).

    After some feedback from our Facebook page, it looks like we'll be starting preproduction on the Skyfall Sunglasses... we'll post updates here as they are available.

    So, what would you like to see in the future?

    Kind regards,
    Magnoli

    Very cool! Nice work Magnoli! Great items you've produced there. I personally would love to see some Back To The Future Marty Mcfly Zeiss sunglasses! They are on my wish list. Put me down for a pair of them please :cool:D

    Great thread, glad to see it. I'm not really that particular when it comes to my glasses, but I love my Tennant Glasses and in sure I'll love the Smith Spectacles when they come out. I'd like a high quality pair of Harry Potter glasses, but that's a really simple design and probably done before numerous times.

    I'd like to resubmit my vote for a pair of Pierce Brosnan's x-ray specs from The World is Not Enough just in case anyone else is interested!

    How about the sunglasses Robert Downey wore in Sherlock Holmes 2 , the scene where he is driving Watson to the wedding ?

    Wouldn't mind seeing replica's of Sarah Connor's Matsuda glasses or Brad Pitt's Oliver People's from Fight Club.

    Nice, put me on the list for Indy specs. I'm in for some Fight Club replicas as well.

    Would any of these glasses be made so that prescription lenses could be put in?

    All of these can be fitted with prescription lenses by your own optometrist.

    Those Smith glasses are a thing of beauty! I'll definitely have to get a pair fitted with my prescription lenses.

    Oooh actually, I have a request I've been after for years.

    I've always wanted to own a pair of Smith's sunglasses from The Matrix Reloaded and Revolutions.

    The official Blinde replicas all had a titanium frame that I was never fond of, but I'd still be happy to buy them if they weren't insanely rare and expensive (often going for several thousands)

    I'm not confident that the interest is there, though. . . would there be any way whatsoever to have a custom pair or two made? Or do you have to buy in bulk of several dozens?

    To do any type of glasses we'd have to make at least 100.

    Man, do I wish I got more responses like this one! ;)

    I know it doesn't help Corri at all, but I'd actually really love to get a pair of Agent Smith's glasses from the first Matrix.

    Hey, you're doing us a great favor simply by offering to do this in the first place. The least we all can do is return the favor ;)

    Here is another! :p
    Though I'm not sure if I would buy a pair :wacko I thought up a half bad name for the glasses, Smithy :lol

    Simple frameless sunglasses of a decent quality are surpringly difficult to come by. I just want something good for my Agent Smith costume.

    Yea, I used to have a pair similar, but they were lost years ago and ever since it's been basically impossible to find that style. I like the first pair because they were subtle.

    i second the motion for the Matrix sunglasses!

    There has been a huge deficit for proper replicas!

    I would love to have a pair Léon's sunglasses from Léon: The Professional. I've been trying to find the originals (Junior Gaultier 58-0072) for a few years now.

    If you decide to do Gary Oldman's glasses from the Dark Knight trilogy I own an orginal pair of the Kirk Originals, I could help with reference too.

    Hell, how about Matt Murdock's glasses from the Daredevil Netflix series?

    I'll definitely be down for a pair of Dr Jones' glasses. Finally means I can put together a Pankot Palace costume :)

    Be seeing you,

    These are also the glasses worn by Johnny Depp in The Ninth Gate.

    Re: Sunglasses & Spectacles!

    Indy, do you spec these out in order to identify the originals or do you have things manufactured to match their on-screen appearance? If the latter, might you consider undertaking Walter White's impossible safety glasses (he wears them as standard wire-rimmed specs throughout the series) from Breaking Bad?

    We work mainly from photos, but prefer having at least a few measurements from the originals to work from. Our Tennant Glasses, however, were created 100% from photos only with no measurements whatsoever. So, anything is possible...

    The Daredevil/Matt Murdock frames appear to be Savile Row model "Walmer" in Chromium/Shiny Silver, with a saddle bridge (no nose pads). They would have had to custom make the red lenses...

    I would for sure be in for some Dr. Jones glasses and probably a pair of Leon's.

    I REALLY don't think that's accurate. I haven't put time into researching them, but Matt's glasses seem to be perfect ovals and the Walmer's have a flatter top than bottom. Also the bridge looks wrong to me.

    Thanks for the note, Risu! I've seen pics where the Walmers look truly oval but others where I can see what you're describing. Perhaps we can find a front angle to overlay with the poster image of Murdock. I wish I had a pair in hand to compare... Berkshire Chase, affiliated with SR, has a "Saddle Oval" frame that may be a true oval as well.

    Here's another close frame from another manufacturer: http://www.eyeglasses.com/glasses/dolomiti-eyewear-oc4s.html

    One of the toughest parts is comparing the overall proportions with product images of frames that are available in a few sizes.

    Indy, any date in mind yet when the Indy glasses may become available on your Internet site ?


    And I'm also interested in the Daredevil / Matt Murdock frame from the new Netfix series. Just in case :D.

    I just thought about getting some Indy glasses. I don't usually go into the costume forum. Looks like I stumbled in here at just the right time!
