    Zenni Optical has a few similar frames in the “Women’s Fashion” section for $20 to $30.

    I got some somewhat similar ones from Binyons not too long ago. Not the same, but $170 vs $450. Hm.

    Laser cutting can be pricey, but works for very small runs. Stamping is cheap for mass production. Mask etching would be customizable and cheap. Maybe even doable as a home project.

    The talk of earpieces makes me think that it would be cool if they could apply the technology to headphone braces.

    I would guess Lafont, or ogi eyewear within the past 3-5 years.

    Hmmm… I’ve got a spare set of glasses around. Shapeways, here I come!

    Apple Bottom has laser cut temples, but not like that.

    They’re definitely Lafonts. They’re the Borgia frame: http://www.framesdirect.com/framesfc/Lafont-lamatj-pr-l.html

    Speaking of Pro-Design, the “Iris” collection has some really cool lazer-cut temples in the 5100 series here: http://www.prodesigndenmark.com/Default.aspx?ID=114&GroupID=5000

    but my favorite thing about Pro-Design is the fact that Tom Cruise’s character in Tropic Thunder wears a pair with interchangeable temples that we sell =)

    They look a bit like the ProDesign/Denmark glasses I have. I can’t see that particular frame on the US website but I’m sure they have more of that style on the EU side since US tends to not like the general frame shape of them. I’ve loved my laser cut titanium frames. I have gotten tones of compliments on them.

    This type of design has become more popular in the Northwest lately. I have a few Nine West in my office that look quite a bit like that in the $130-180 price range. the Pro-Designs that #7 mentioned also have many with that same type of laser-cut temples. They tend to run more in the $200-400 range.

    Even the cheap knock-off brands are starting to do this a lot more.

    For God’s sake, forget the glasses. I want to know more about the building the bookstore was in, maybe even a few pictures?

    They’ve got to be LaFont’s. I have a similar pair, but mine also have rhinestones.

    My German professor wears glasses like these. Maybe it’s a German thing?

    They could be IC Berlin. Check out this website, best eyeglasses sold anywhere. The owner used to design for Alain Mikli in New York and San Fran and now owns a shop in Holland MI. Also frames by X.I.T. rule!

    These are the most delicate ones I’ve seen, but cutout earpieces were all over the place when I bought frames this summer. (In the Great Plains; not some mecca of high fashion.)

    Not that it makes these any less lovely.

    I can see some print on the earpiece in the photo. Did you happen to copy down any of it? Sometimes you can find frames by searching for model names and part numbers.
