Which glasses are these?

They're almost identical to the Warby Parker Begley glasses, which are themselves a copy of an apparently famous design "first popular in the 1930s," according to their copy. Does this design have a particular name? It's not P3.

I am not sure but Oliver People's Florenz, Emerson, Riley and Sheldrake are in similar territory, taken from the same era (allegedly) also and may have more info.

It might be hard to find an exact match because Dieter Rams probably bought those glasses in Germany.

It looks like he's been wearing very similar glasses for a Long Time.

The Anglo American AA406 is very similar. Might even be those frames; they're a very posh, waspy style and get distributed widely.
