Has anyone found a budget alternative to the Norton sunglasses?

At some point I’m planning on picking up the tortoise Ray-Ban RB4258 or RB2180 and swapping out the Brown Classic lens it comes with, with their Green Classic lens. The frame is close enough to the Norton’s for budget alternative for me.

For anyone looking for Skyfall corduroy jeans Uniqlo has a great alternative in their new arrivals.

The link doesn’t seem to be working, here it is again if not just look for the dark brown corduroy in their new arrivals

It's not the right colour but for £2.99 I reckon this is a VERY budget Spectre Morocco tie alternative.

Hmmm, I'm in the states and it seems that the UK site won't let me place an order and it the US site doesn't offer the same sunglasses.  Search goes on I guess

I have no experience with the online shops or the brands but these look close to the nortons:

I gave these a whirl, they have a lens that is more sized like the bartons, and the totoise looks pretty classy and they are Amazon Prime so if they are not good easy back they go.

Re: Budget Bond Collectors Resource

While we're on the topic of sunglasses, if the Tom Ford Williams are too expensive\scarce, Maui Jim makes a (fairly pricey @ $300) alternative, the 787 Swinging Bridge sunglasses.

They arrived today, pretty nice, very comfortable and a decent looking tortoise look.

Sold!  You should get commission.  Think I saw a review of them on a different menswear blog once actually and always fancied giving them a crack given their value.

Has anybody any update on John and Iconic Alternatives - it's been worryingly quiet etc does David Z have any news?

Re: Budget Bond Collectors Resource

No, I still check regularly, the other day when I went to the website it asked about cookies which I thought might be a good sign, but as far as I can tell nothing has changed and still no word from John since he completed his move to NYC
