My buddy just got a pair of those, and man they are really, really nice - I had never heard of the brand until a few weeks ago. But definitely agree after seeing them, very nice.

Ray Ban polarized.. I don't believe in spending >$100 on sunglasses.

Polarized Ray Bans are well over $100.

ray-bans

I've got a pair of gold framed aviators that I bought after seeing Top Gun. They're ~25 years old.

Oakleys are what I wear on my bikes and motorcycles. Really when all occasions call for sporty sun glasses.

But Ray Bans all other times. Just too classic not to have pair

Last 3 pairs have been Oakleys. They are incredibly durable and the polarization is top notch

I wore oakley's until i met my wife who's father is an eye doctor. Now I wear maui jim. Educated on why they are good also. Glass lenses, titanium fittings, and the customer service. I do see a difference with clarity over the oakley's.

I've been wearing "Transitions" contact lenses in a beta test for them. May never need sunglasses again...

















J/k Oakleys and the wife has just become a huge fan of Maui Jim glasses.

I feel your pain I have a Dolce & Gabana case in my glove box but no shades inside because I can't find them. I think i'm going to replace them with the LV Attitude Pilote in black.

I opened up my case and it was empty I nearly cried. Last I remember my Aunt tried them on in my car when she was in town. She said they felt too heavy on her face and handed them back to me. WHERE DID I PUT THEM?!!! Stupid car has them somewhere.
