but yeah that's true, i never see any more new armani models, i think they've been beat by other brands. or you know what, try looking online, and try to get the store to get them for you to see if they're nice.
i did that with my new glasses, the agent from the company brought me 6 boxes of different frames, even one's that i've never seen in stores.
those semi-rimmed tag ones...how much do they sell for in phil? i have the exact same pair but not semi-rimmed, and they're just too friggin' big. i think those ones u showed would be great.
kc, one brand that i really like is a german brand called IC!berlin. they make some very stylish frames that i think might suit ur style. they're a little pricey. retail is like 350-400. ebay has a pair or two every once in a while for pretty good prices.
^ the tag frames may all look the same but they are actually a few fits. from the store window, they all look the same except for the color....but thats not true, they have different sizes. probably that's why yours is big. i'm guessing you tried one that you liked just not in the color you want and had the optical store hook u up with the color you want, and next thing you know, it doesn't quite fit as nice as when you tried them on. as for the price, it really depends on where you go and who you know. i'm guessing a range of 14-15t.
as for the ic!berlin, we got that here too... i think they're a little more expensive than the tags if not the same here.
