I don't think Luxotica owns LV's eyewear. Anyways, I've been on the same pair of classic Ray Bans aviators that's lasted me a decade. I am very particular when it comes to what shades look good on me, and the LVs happen to look the best, so I picked it up.

I'm guessing you are someone who would also make the argument of "why pay for a Hublot with a standard Valjoux movement when you can get a quartz Seiko that is more accurate?"

my ex-gf was a director of production for LVMH. while luxottica isn't specifically contracted to mfgr LVMH sunglasses, they are all produced in luxottica owned production facilities. just like nearly 90% of all name brand sunglasses in the world.

Nothing really.....my dad had a bunch of them as pilots logs and I guess it carried over to me. I take notes in them when I'm studying for my CFP designation. That way when I put them on the bookshelf in my office at work they look normal and subtle.

I would have bought a proper razor before a brush, but that's just me
