    The problem with de rigo, more so than any other company that we currently deal with, is their stuff is ridiculously cheap on line. We dropped marcolin for the same reason. They simply must be...

    Poly is 'stronger' in a totally insignificant way. Trivex is less prone to chipping, which is what the customer is most concerned about.

    In what way does trivex fit 'my' needs? What a ridiculous...

    What is fear mongering about stating facts? Trivex is optically better, lighter, less chemically reactive and stronger than poly and therefore preferential in almost all cases. Doesn't mean poly is...

    What's wrong with safilo? Their new line of own brand frames are extremely good quality, with arguably the best hinge. One of the best ranges on the market IMO.

    Chopard are appalling quality.
    RayBan, terrible, plus you are an enemy of the profession if you carry.
