    lindberg frames

    I"ve seen ads for these in all the optical magazines. Looks very nice.
    How have they been selling at your office?
    Also, is there a USA rep for these? The website has their contact in Denmark.

    Listen to two ODs talk frames...blind leading the blind:D...

    I've always thought that there were three "top" rimless-type companies:
    Lindberg
    Italee
    Silhouette

    I think that "in the day" you should have had one of the three.


    The real question is not how good those companies are, because they are all "world-beaters".

    The better question is how far to sea is the crest of the "rimless revolution" wave? Are we now simply bobbing up-and-down like bloated driftwood in the swirling wake?

    Or, is rimless timeless and enduring, like the Gulf Stream, propelling you to destinations untold?

    For that, I'd ask an optician.

    (For evocative prose, see me :))

    I tried to get them once, and was told by the company that they were exclusive and that someone in the area was already carrying them, so they wouldn't let me carry them. Only so many can carry them in a certain radius.

    They sell great, get on board if you can. They do have reps in the US. If you keep your samples to show and order the mountings as you sell them, you don't need to see them very often. My buy in wasn't to high at all, 4 years ago. I do them myself in house, but I have been doing rimless for quite some time. Probably, my single best seller. Get the basic spirit model and then add some with the wider temples #61 and #62.

    You may want to look at frames by Acuity Optical. A fellow Optiboarder, Uni-Clip, runs the company. You may find something from them that fits the bill(and the wallet!). There new line is called Free Form Atitude.

    Good luck!
