Great hoot.

I tried Lindberg when I was at Jamco recently.
The construction, build quality and weight is entire different level. Almost wanted to get 1 after trying.

Probably will get one pair in the future.



Mind telling me, what is the metal rod looking thing in the middle?
Indeed it is. I was very much sold when I tried it on.

That's the lens spray. I don't know why it comes together and I not sure if I will ever use it. Haha

Collected my Lindberg today. Wasn't expecting it to be ready cos supposed to be on Tuesday. Glad they called me before my party tomorrow.

Firstly, even the paper carrier for it looks good!


Then the box also feels damn solid



Opening the box


The black rectangular box is the case. I suspect its made of genuine leather even cos it smells damn nice and feels real good. That stick in the middle is the lens spray by Lindberg. Follow by the frames identity card with serial number.


And lastly, the specs




I know some of you will be thinking, "special meh, looks normal leh. Like ordinary specs"
"my $80 frame looks like that also"

This is probably the first time I tried a specs and fell in love. All my previous specs are like, ok lo no other choice already.
This feels very light, yet sturdy. And the quality can tell. Even from the way they present it in the box can tell the makers don't play around with this.

Absolutely epic, I love unboxing and presentation. Congratz on your new glasses enjoy them.

Is that model 1818? Cause it looks almost identical to mine lolol.

Congrats on a Horn too. Lindberg really the best frame i tried so far. It really justifies the price if comfort and aesthetic is something you are looking for.

initially wanted to copy gangsterkia and prescribe a Horn, but balls shrinked after hearing how much it was

but ended up making an acetitanium with gangsterkia which is more within my budget, and have never looked back ever since comfort and aesthetic win hands down compared to all my previous specs made

Hi Gangsterkia, if this frame (Lindberg model 1818) applies on Hoya submit lens (something like this for progressive lens??) it would be easily exceed $1.1K? Thanks.

Hi! Yes it will surely exceed that amount. The frame itself Cost around 2k(before discount) . But discount varies at different shop.
The lens submit depending on your power starts from 350 onwards(before discount too). So at least 2k is your expected figure.
Correct me if I am wrong!

If you feel the horn is on the higher side , you can still use the second next option which is the acetanium design. It looks like a horn just that the frame front is made with acetate instead of the buffalo horn. Weight and comfort is there only difference is appearance. Horn over time will age and thus will have those woody/grainy appearance depending on how you handle it. Lindberg also have other series apart from horn and acetanium. They are all really comfortable e.g. Rim series, N.O.W series, their frameless air titanium series.

The TOP is the Rim series whereby it's really flexible, light and comfortable. Colour can be customized and I chose that teal-ish Colour.

The lower is of course the horn series that you seen from user mikeyyy. Just that the Colour is different. Horn frame even though we can choose same model and even same colour scheme/code but the finished product, the Two frames will still look different as it's a natural material thus it cannot be replicated thus no Two horns will look the same.


Pardon my lousy camera haha

Hi, between Lindberg and Mykita, which is value for money as I need to go for lightweight frame. Thanks.
