I love these glasses. I was looking for something like the Persols Steve McQueen used to wear (especially in the Thomas Crown Affair) but require prescription. Prescription Persols run around $300. These are big frames - I have a very large head (7 5/8" crown) and they fit me perfect.

I grew up watching Steve McQueen. So, I have him as my fashion icon as an adult. I always wanted a pair of Persol 714's like he wore in the Thomas Crown Affair, but I'm seriously myopic, so getting a pair seemed out of the question. These Van der Rohe's with a blue tint are close enough.

This frame gets the mix bag for appreciation. Yes, its hideously weird, but has a wonderful charm. The keyhole noise bridge is high and out of place, paired to the large aviator style. However the frame is endearing, and begs to be worn. The purple fleck tortoise is the only choice! Stunning color!

I loved these glasses in all the pictures, and thought they would be fantastic in person. I was so disappointed with how big they were, how the arms seemed to bend outward unnecessarily, and how awkward the fit was. They also weren't nearly as attractive as I'd hoped. Don't recommend.

I bought these with polarized brown tinted progressive lenses. Functionally, they work great as sunglasses. Be warned that they're quite large. The design feels a bit odd in person. The nose bridge is quite high for large aviators, and they front is flat, with no curve at all.
