Help me find new eyeglass frames

I'm so in love with my current glasses, and I can't let go. Unfortunately, they are no longer made. Help me find something new!

I have been wearing these frames for quite a few years. I LOVE them and have yet to find anything nearly as lovable. I've emailed optical4less and they say that they are no longer made. If I had known that they would run out, I would have bought a bunch of spares years ago!

I'm trying to find something in the same vein. Semi-rimless, with a pronounces, separated brow like the ones above. Help?

Do you have a friend with a 3D scanner/printer? You might be able to make a duplicate...

Theo might get you close (scroll down to the bottom of the page for the separated browline models). Pricey and not as reliable as I'd hoped: my last pair lasted about a year before a temple hinge failed — but the styling is very unique and in the ballpark of what you are after.

I feel your pain. If none of biscuits' suggestions do it for you, try copying the image of your frames and doing a google image search to see if something similar turns up.

Definitely Google the frame name, you might find a place that sells deadstock frames (eBay is also a good bet).

Cat Pie, are your current frames still okay? You can always get them re-lensed. Costco will charge you $18 to put a new prescription in your current frames.
