Carrera 5595 Aviators Col.:32 Made in Germany 90's

This is how a Photo of a Frame looks like, when I take a little more time for it!!!

I would say the Carrera 5595 is a classic to me, even if you could say that all vintage carrera-aviators are classics. I own them in 3 different colorways in Red, matt black and in an ivory-colorway. But i know there are some brown and other reds out there. I really like them, they are huge and i love big aviators. the temples are golden and the logo in the middle too.

Just great!!!

Cazal 904 Made in W.Germany, Passau 1980 80's

This is a Classic "What more can i say???"

If you looking for Vintage Sunglasses on Celebs you just have to check all the Videos of Rick Ross.
in the new on "Rick Ross (feat. Robin Thicke) Lay Back, he is rocking a white Cazal 951, a Bausch & Lomb Wings in Black and i think some Cartier Glasses in the end.

It would be no suprise for me, if Ross got all of that from the Pope of Vintage Eyewear Corey Saphiro.

Check his Company its crazy

Im wondering

Sometimes i surf thru the net checking all of these "Celebrity Sunglasses Sites" just to check who is wearing some vintage stuff or wich company steals designs from old shades and than im wondering, why do those site sometimes take a pic of a celeb and tell me the name of the frame even if the frame dosent even look like the frame they name?
I hope you got me!?

For example:

Brad Pitt wears many shades when his in public, some are vintage some are new, some i never can find out what it is, but, in one case a site named (i really like the site), tells me that Mr. Pitt is wearing a Tom Ford Pablo even if a blind man can see that the Frame on his nose isent even looking like the frame they try to sell.
Just see for your self:

Dose are the Tom Ford Pablo
Do you think those two frames are the same!!! NEVER!!! The funny part is that this kind of mistake brings me to another thnig i was wondering. How can it be that some Frames today realy looks like a copy from the past.
Ok, there are some great companys around and to use a desgin from the 70's, 80's or even the 90's to be inspired and to creat a cool vintage looking frame is ok, but to just steal a great shape its really not ok.
Im saying that, cause some do and i dont know what brand the shades on Brads nose are but when they are new (if you know it please let me know and dont try to tell me its a Tom For Pablo), they are just a copy of a Metzler SportVision from the 80's Made in West Germany.
I already showed that frame on my blog but i thought i post it again that you can compare them to the other frame.

What do you think, they look really familir to me.
Im gone post once in a while the one or the other mistakes and copycats on my blog. I would be happy if you let me know what you think about all of that.

Thanks for the visit

Even if the ALPINA M1 are my most favorit Sunglasses from Alpina, those are almost as big as the M1s!!!

The best part on this Glasses from the ProCar Series is that the temples and the width of the nose are adjustable. So they really fit great!!!

Rodenstock Supersonic 1755D Hugh Aviators, Brown Lenses, 1980, 80's and made in W.Germany

The Rodenstock Supersonic Series is a really great line of different Styles. There are a whole lot of fantastic shades in that series but for me the 1755D in this colorway is the king of them!!!
The detail in the middle of the frame is made out of a piece of goldbrown/sandish plastic and i think its the dot on the i for that Style...but the whole shape of this stunner rocks!!! And if you ever have the chance to wear them, do it they feel f...... comfortable!
