Micro-trend alert: Michael Westen Glasses

A couple weeks back, I posted a teensy-tiny review of Burn Notice, a show that my wife and I have been enjoying immensely this summer. Ever since, on Thursday night and Fridays, my search referral logs show little spikes for 'Michael Westen' (the series' lead character) and 'Jeffrey Donovan' (the actor who plays him.) Lately? The searches all focus on the sun glasses Westen sports. They feature prominently in the opening credits, and last Thursday's episode ended with them prominently displayed above Westen's grinning mug. Anybody seen these bad boys? I'd love to finally give all those desperate fashion-seekers the answer that they crave. (Yes, I realize the show's site has an Ask the Spy feature, but they usually don't choose questions so prosaic as 'where'dya get them sunglasses?')

Update, 5 minutes later: Well, that didn't take long. They're Oliver People's Victory. Rosewood Gradient, polarized. Retail price: 400 bucks(!) And my wife just got mad at me for dropping $120 on some sunglasses after the LASIK fried my eyeballs...
