In "A Scanner Darkly," Robert Downey Jr. wears a pair of interesting spectacles. Who makes the frames, or who makes a similar version?

I would like to buy the frames Robert Downey Jr. wears in "A Scanner Darkly," but I can't Google my way to them. Who makes these or a similar version?

Here are links to images from the film showcasing these frames:

Glasses 1

Glasses 2

Hrm. Oakley has some here that have the wide "legs" like the ones in the first pic (the second was un-viewable), or take a look at some of the "Lifestyle" models here.

Not exact, but who knows what the artists did to the actual glasses he was wearing during the shoot..

Here's another picture I found digging around online without much luck (from a Yahoo question that got deleted without answers it looks like but the cache preserved the pic.

When you get the error on the second image, click in your address bar and hit enter (just refreshing won't work). Amazon probably doesn't like the non-Amazon referral.

I found an even better example of the same picture. I don't know if this is really helping but there it is.

These Republica Sacrementos look similar, but they don't come in gray that I can see.
