    Lightbulb Identify these obscure sunglasses

    Hi all.

    Hoping a sharp eye can determine which sunglasses the man in this image is wearing (big image at the link) so I can source them for someone. They're old, 1987 or before. Possibly Renauld or a similar brand.

    Thanks in advance

    They still make them. I actually have a vintage pair in black still in the box, right in front of me. 14kt rolled gold.

    Actually, the vintage pair was called the "Beaufort Panto" but the website now has a separate "beaufort" and "panto" model that are pretty similar.

    That was my first thought too. Such a beautiful, iconic piece.
