These frames are available in funkier colors, but the local optician who cared enough to help me when I came a'callin' only had it in black, so that's what I've ordered. I should be able to pick them up this week. I'm kind of excited, because they are funky and distinctive. I still may want them in another color combo, though.
Lafont seems very well-made. I think I may be seeking out their frames in particular in the future. They certainly have some odd ducks, and I find that tremendously appealing.
