Exactly like the Seinfeld episode with the glasses!

I saw the most beautiful pair of glasses today. They looked great on me and were a perfect fit when I tried them on. The only problem was they belonged to a stranger on the street.

He wouldn't tell me where he got them.

This is what they said inside the temple: "THEO Singapore Belgium"
I suspect that's BRAND model and country

I'm looking to buy them online, I just can't find them.

Any help, or direction would be appreciated.

The first google for THEO turns up Belgian spec makers Theo. Have a look!

Oh my god! That's so simple. I feel dumb.

Thank you all.

It doesn't look like they have an online store. I'm going to start calling and visiting stores in town (Edmonton, Alberta).

Would welcome suggestions for online retailers.

Since the question appears to be answered, may I ask under what circumstances were you trying on a stranger's glasses and why he wouldn't say where he got them?

Most people aren't too forthcoming with information when you mug them. Although, if someone ran up to me, ripped my glasses off of my face, excitedly tried them on, and then asked me where I got them, I'd probably tell him just to see what he'd do.

:-P

I'm also curious how you manage to get the brand name off of them when he wouldn't tell you where he got them.

DMan, I was admiring them in a bar, and my date dared me to ask him. He obliged.

happyturtle, I got that info from the inscription inside the temple (glasses arm?)

Everyone, I found them! I just bought them too!
