Sunglasses, Rivington’s Revisted

Some obscure options from Japan.


On a side note, I’ve been wearing my Selima Rivington’s more often lately and I’ve come to appreciate their lighter weight compared my Persol’s – thinking I might like another pair in tortoise, I was surprised to see that J.Crew is now charging $75 more for them than they were a year ago. I don’t know the reason behind the increase, but it seems they were priced more competitively in sub $250 market as they’re better made than Wayfarers, but are not quite as good as Oliver Peoples.


Selima for J.Crew – The Rivington Sunglasses

J.Crew recently lowered the price on their Rivington sunglasses and it was enough to get me to finally order a pair.  The glasses, which are made in France by Selima Optique, have so far performed fairly well for my needs and I’ve been generally happy with them.  If you have problems with heavier glasses, these might be a good choice as they’re fairly light (a bit like Wayfarers).

J.Crew has been pushing them harder lately by featuring them in more pictures so you might not want to wait long to order a pair – I’m even considering getting extra pairs to turn into eyeglasses as well.  Read on for more pictures.  Available at jcrew.com, $250: Link
