Haha I remember reading that too Mike.
When you find yourself groaning getting in and out of an armchair itís time for an attitude adjustment!
Donít let the old man in, indeed!

Some interesting looking shades. Iíve spent silly money on sunglasses and may continue to do so but I donít see any from that brand that would get me to part with THAT much dough. Still an interesting brand revival.
The "Sixty One" looks cool, but with a run of "200", low production adds to the price.
Consider how long and how many millions of Aviators RayBan make and sell per year, those frames should be $5 a pop now, instead of $160 (especially since they're not Italian made in most instances)...

Yeah Iím still browsing (not one of my frenzied holy grail searches!) for a pair of brow line shades like your Olympians but my search is not intense as when Iíve tried on similar styles they didnít seem to suit me.

I like the look of the Moscot Simcha

But when I tried them on they were huge. I then had the idea of getting them custom made and requesting that they make the lenses half as tall as they are in the pics (they cut their own lenses in house). Two different people have told me they canít do that as thereís a wire that goes round the bottom of the lens. Iíve studied pics online and in their printed catalogue and I donít see it so Iíve shelved this plan h til I can get back to New York and see for myself in the shop.

I also tried on the JMM Seberg and was surprised how well they suited me but Iím not prepared to throw down that much cash for a style Iím not THAT desperate to own!

They come in a few variations but the bottle green lenses looked really cool.

I wrote about how my cheapy black leather ones from Aldo started literally disintegrating on my feet after only a handful of wears while I was walking round New York City so I went straight over to Meermin and got a replacement pair (wholecut softcalf with flex welt and city rubber sole) which I wore out of the shop!
I know what you mean about elongating. I have small feet so it doesnít bother me so much but a couple of my pairs I would have preferred a less aggressive toe shape.

I like them Mike. I kept seeing a similar grey suede pair every time e I walked through Nordstromís in the Tampa mall that were very tempting but I decided I have enough chelseas at five pairs!

Iím personally not that arsed about having a perfect fit for work shirts as I never take my jacket off so as long as collar and cuffs look good and the fit is more or less slim Iím not too picky.

I tend to wear polos etc more than shirts casually, but for those rarer times when I do wear a casual shirt without a jacket Iíd prefer it to not be from the Ivy Maternity range.
