Nah, they're out in my car (where they should be!). They're a smaller lens, thin metal sidepieces, thin tortise-shell design around the lenses and earpieces. Very light, very chic, very good for driving. Which is why they're in the car.
I have about 4 pair of crap off-brand ones that I picked up at a discount store to wear at work, I'm always losing them or leaning over something and stressing or breaking the frames, etc. The Serengetis will be going with me to Italy, though.
going further OT....
Your pejorative reference to Bono made me smile nostalgically. Many years back a fast-food joint (maybe Arby's?) was doing a promo with some glasses displaying cartoon characters, and one of them was Sylvester and Tweety (on opposite sides of the glass, sort of chasing each other). Other than letters and the characters themselves the glasses were clear. Anyway, Tweety was saying his infamous line, "I tawt I taw a puddy tat" and since it was in all caps (in that classic cartoon font), if you looked through the glass from the other direction, "tawt" became "twat"...my, how the whack-jobs that see penises in Disney posters would have come undone at that one, eh?
The glasses have long since been lost or broken, but it was funny then and is still funny to me now. Thanks for the memories, DR...
