I have looked and I'm going to pick up the blue mirrored Revos from Season 4/5; however, the only Persols they have that Johnson wore are the brown and dark drown models and i would love to be able to find a black pair.:cool:

Hey, I feel your pain. There is hope though. Ray-Ban makes the Wayfarer again, Revo makes the Grand Sixties again, so hopefully Persol will make the 69218's again. Just keep hoping. I have been for 5 years.

I know. Black frame Persol 69218's are very rare, and expensive. Good luck my friend.

Found these on Amazon but unfortunately they are currently out of stock. Might want to keep checking. http://www.amazon.com/Celebrity-Vintage-Sunglasses-Similar-Looking-Nicholson/dp/B00280HT68They also have a nice Revo knockoff here.http://www.amazon.com/Iridescent-Mirror-Vintage-Sunglasses-Similar-Looking/dp/B000NLUZEM/ref=wl_it_dp_o_pC_nS?ie=UTF8&coliid=I1WCU2YPYB2JAG&colid=1CQ6OG7UFDD87I have the originals of the Persol Ratti 69218 and the Blue mirror 840/001 Revos and they are both hard to find and expensive.. the Persols usually are much more pricey. They do popup occasionally.

Yes those are nice but are the sides to the persol replicas checkered?

Saw a pair of new Persols ..... but ...... :eek: $2495.00 Think I'll stick with Wayfarers ...http://sunglasssales.com/images/detailed/69218_Black12777859514c29775f2f707.jpg

Like I've said before....they are REALLY expensive.Because mine is brand new old stock, I can never wear it, only display it. Sad, but at least it will hold it's value.

The Persol replicas on the link, I bought on amazon a couple of years ago. They were OK but if you look at the arm on the glasses it has a very noticeable chequered pattern, which I believe the originals/Crocketts didn't. I might be wrong but just make sure you check em out. Good luck.

They show up on ebay from time to time ...... Hi I bought a few pairs of the original 69218's back in the mid 90's from a boutique in Costa Mesa CA before the internet recognition exploded the prices. Right now I have three pair (none for sale sorry). People say they're expensive and yes for glasses $300 to $500 IS expensive. But these retailed for $300 new back in the day if I remember right. Hopefully the designers at Persol will see the interest as they did with the "Steve McQueen" model 714's and re-issue the 69218's. And I don't mean the lame non-flex hinge models you see on eBay now for $200 or whatever it is :rolleyes: . Good Luck -Ronbo

Aren't these the same ones you posted below for $300???  " Asking 300.00. "

You might try posting on Ebay for a broader audience, and you also may want to clarify the price in the IN Auction thread posting above as there seems to be a conflict between your 2 posts.

Seems to me Versace's VE4275 sunglasses are near identical (save for the medusa), keep in mind apparently 90% of sunglasses manufacturers are owned by the same mega corp, so i guess they just re-purpose designs after a while.
