Overall: 4.1 / 5 based on 10 reviews
9 of 10 reviewers would recommend this product to a friend.
I bought the "boardroom" readers. They are worth the money spent. The frames are light weight, they look great and the hinges snap shut, so they don't flop around in your pocket. The slight hinge pressure insures the glasses stay put even though the sides don't wrap around the ears. The hard case is very nice, making them easy to find in my shoulder pack. I've purchased so many from the local drug store that if are light weight they fall apart quickly, or are too heavy. I definitely recommend them, even though they are a little more expensive, they are worth it.
Terrific Glasses -
By: philVT from Vermont
Just received my pundits and this is a terrific product. Fits well and clearly well made. Worth the investment over drug store cheapies when you consider how much you use them. My guess is that all products from the source company are high quality so the actual style may not matter.
Distinct but CEO style is for small face -
Pay attention to the tips given in the second image for these glasses so that you get a size appropriate for the face they will be worn on. The CEO style for example is quite small, didn't catch that from reading the general descriptions.
Reading Glasses -
I purchased the "author" reading glasses about 4 months ago and today, the left hinge mechanism separated. I called customer service and a replacement pair was sent out along with a return mailer to send back the defective pair. Customer service at Orvis was OUTSTANDING! I was impressed with their rapid response and courteous service.
Beware of the Economist Pair -
Lasted only 8 months. Left hinge failed even though I kept them in the protective box that came with them. Sorry, not worth $70

distinctive quality -
By: DCshopper from Washington DC
I purchased the Boardroom and couldn't be more pleased with the quality and appearance. The lenses are clear and the frame is comfortable. The comfort stems from the flexible hinges, molded nose bridge, and extended sides. The slight hinge pressure insures the glasses stay put even though the sides don't wrap around the ears. The style is distinctive and clearly sends the message "these are not drugstore glasses." A bonus is the high quality case.
Great Looks -
I love these glasses ( Pundit) I get a lot of compliments and find them high quality overall, although I have problems with having them loosen all of time ( seems to be a screw problem or soemthing having to do with construction) I would order other styles, but will wait to see how these hold out.
High Quality Reading Glasses -

I purchased the Economist, and am very pleased with its' sturdy construction and quality. Far and away the best reading glasses I've ever owned -- and I've had a lot of lesser quality, cheaper pairs.
Good product. Poor product description(s). -
Beware. Just took delivery of a pair of these sunglasses - CEO style. Although descriptions as written imply that certain sunglasses are bifocal and certain are not, the CEO's are bifocal. They appear to have added a boldface blurb to clear up confusion, but it was written in the same ambiguous way as the original description. Bottom line: the sunglasses are bifocal magnifiers, not straight magnifying sunglasses. If you are looking for bifocals, they seem to be a high quality pair.
