Personally, I liked the Wayfarers best on DJ, although I didn't mind the Carreras. I bought my dad a pair of Carreras many years ago - and he lost them!! Grrr! I did get some discount, as we have a family friend who owns a couple of sunglass stores here, but still - he lost a pair of Carreras!! :rolleyes:I would love to buy a pair of Wayfarers - the 'new' model. I've seen a few female celebs wearing them and I like the look. I bought a pair of Ray Bans in the mid-90s - the 'Bohemian' style. But they just don't have the character of the Wayfarers.Thanks for sharing your collection Coop :cool:

How exciting Chloe!! Yes would love to see pics!Coop - can I ask you about the re-released Wayfarers. So the ones that you have (model 2140, 902 with green lens & tortoise frame) - are they the closest ones to what Crockett wore? In the 50mm size?I have been comparing prices in various online stores & in some of the pictures, the 50mm looks on the small side. But on DJ/Crockett they look like a decent size.

I'm just re-watching season 4 and also some of season 5 - is Crockett wearing black Wayfarers there, or did he only wear the tortoise shell ones?

Those are black frame wayfarers.

Speaking of which' date=' I was just revisiting "Sons and Lovers" and was trying to figure out what kind of sunglasses Sonny wears during the funeral scene at the end.[img']http://www.miamiviceonline.com/screenshots/sons43.jpgCrockett wore tortoise Wayfarers in Season 2. But these look black, which he didn't wear until Season 4. He wore Persols in Season 3.Any idea, C&B? Maybe they are tortoise but just look dark in the picture. But then I don't think Michael Mann would ever allow even the smallest clash of colors. :)

I looked at Crockett's shades next to castillo's black shades when they were standing next to each other. I played it in slow motion.....it's really hard to tell, as the scene is dark, and in many places in shady places. But at times when he turns his head, I seem to catch the glimpse of the tortoise shell color a bit on his shades.It's NOT difinitive, but I believe they are the Tortoise shell, but I admit, I could be proven wrong.
