Persol PO0649The 0649 is a Persol icon first created in 1957 for Turin's tram drivers. The keyhole bridge and peaked brow provides unmatched character. Victorflex at the brow and Meflecto at the temple provide flexibility. The iconic defining silver Supreme Arrow emanates from the hinges to decorate the temples. This sunglass is completely handmade and is therefore unique. Havana acetate complements all skin tones. Lenses are in mineral glass for supreme clarity. With full UV400 protection and a two-year manufacturer's warranty.Colour code: 24/51Colour: TortoiseLens category: 2Lens features: Gradient

I had bought an authentic pair of 54mm at sunglass hut which were too big for me and decided to try the 52mm from Amazon. When I compared the two glasses, they were clearly off. The earpieces are uneven and the print on the glasses are all off. I took pictures of fake vs real for comparison.
Don't buy these.
Returned original and re-ordered. Second one arrived scuffed on the chassis and on the temples returning this one as well. These are absolutely not in new condition and must be defective ones Persol. After buying and returning two different pair I would not recommend.
With the above stated, I also tried a pair of Persol PO 0714, the folding style made famous by Steve McQueen and highly rated by many. It had 140mm temples, which were just a little longer than my circumstances require, however the ends of the temples could be bent downward to adjust them to conform to my measurements. The most interesting finding was that 714's had the same specifications as above (21mm bridge and 52mm lenses), yet were insufficient to provide me with the width required with which to span my face, thus the temples placed too much pressure on the sides of my head. I bring this up only to illustrate how individualized the whole fit/comfort equation can be when deciding if you're going to be satisfied with a specific model. I strongly suggest that you choose a vendor that will afford you with hassle-free, no charge returns. The ability to try a pair of sunglasses without being obligated to keep them or pay for returns should be part of the vendor's business model in my opinion. Proceed with caution.
Having stated the above, I wear prescription glasses and I also require a darker-than-normal brown tint and a blue light blocker with antireflective coating. Getting all that requires the services of a locally-based optician, so I am unable to comment on the lenses supplied in the frames. I took these frames to my ophthalmologist's eyeglass dispensery. They took out the vendor-supplied plano lenses and inserted a set of prescription lenses to the above specifications. I enjoy the frame style, which looks good on me (well, as good as you can make "ugly" look - ha!) and provides me with great coverage. (There's very little side light leakage with these frames.) My optician was impressed with the build quality and none of the Persol models I own has presented difficulty with the installation of replacement lenses. (I have 2 different frame styles.)
In summary, the frames work for me and the other model with the same specifications did not work out even though the measurements are supposedly identical. I suggest you proceed with the expectation that it may be necessary to return/exchange them for a refund or a different model. Persol offers several sizes in some of its models. For example, some are available with 52 or 54mm lenses and many offer 140 and 145mm temples with varying bridge widths. Other models, some of which are wrap-around, come in 57, 58 and even 60mm lens widths. It may take some experimentation to find just the right set of frames for the size and shape of your head. Likewise, there are a few color choices to be considered. I have color #24, Tortoise Red (also called "Havana" in some Persol models). You may like black or a lighter Havana or brown color. Some are a little off the wall for me, such as the frames with green or blue in the pattern, but not everyone shares my sense of esthetics, nor should they. The good news is there's probably something for everyone. Good luck. Persistence pays off.
I'm very satisfied with this frame. It feels good on me and it looks good as well.
