    can't go wrong with Ray Ban in my book. I had the opportunity to buy a gross of NOS gold "Signet" frames, and they are my go-to specs. I also had to jump on the bandwagon of the Persol 649s (to front the Steve McQueen in The Thomas Crown Affair look).
    For summer ha-ha's I have red Wayfarers, et al.

    I've got a pair of 'scripted Ray-Bans, plasitic frames, not too thick, but not skinny with polarized lenses; think the style is called Daddy-O but i'm too lazy to go out to my car to check. I hope to get a pair of Aviators though soonish. I'm also contemplating getting a pair of Oaklies, perferably with the blue lenses (all perscription, of course). I'm rough on my glasses, so the super fashionable/super expensive stuff doesn't appeal to me. plus, i'd be awfully ticked off if I dropped a pair of chanel glasses off the side of a boat!

    Sorry, but I go with cheapies 99% of the time, as I'm notorious for laying down (and then forgetting) my sunglasses. I have one good pair of Pradas, but even then I did NOT (and would not have) paid retail for them. I think I bought them on eBay, and I only wear them on very dressy occasions. Call me a cheapskate, but I'd just plotz if I were to lose a $350.00 pair of sunglasses.

    I likewise, either break or lose sunglasses. I'll buy the el-cheapos. Whenever in NYC, it's fun to buy some from Canal St or St Marks. *plotz*----nice yiddish.

    I prefer paying a little extra for sunglasses - I get better quality, and often, in my opinion, better-looking designs.

    Up until just recently, I wore these.

    But then, I came to the realisation that they made my face look very oblong and stretched-out, so I sold them - for virtually the same price I bought them - and got a pair of these instead.

    Last year on a whim I got a pair of vintage Ray-Bans, the round wire frame like John Lennon had on in that well know picture of him. (I was actually more inspired by Chow Yun-Fat in the movie "A Better Tomorrow" http://www.lovehkfilm.com/reviews_2/better_tomorrow.htm ) They had the optically perfect Bausch & Lomb lenses. I have to say that putting them on let me know how much lenses quality for sunglasses had degraded over the past two decades. I was really amazed at how important the lenses quality ended up being to my enjoyment of sunglasses. I've yet to find anything in production that matches the lenses quality of these vintage sunglasses.

    I gotta agree. I have over 15 pairs of designer sunglasses ( I live in Miami it's very bright here LOL) and the only ones I seem to wear are my Maui Jims. They are the best lenses I have ever tried. The only other brand that comes close (for me) is Revo.

    Sadly it seems with most designer sunglasses its form before function.

    Recently I bought my first ever pair of sunglasses (I'm short-sighted and, about a year or so ago, started wearing contacts on a more regular basis). Personally, I don't trust the designer stuff (a case of style over substance, although some of the Emporio Armani's are cool) and decided to get a pair of Ray-Bans (i.e. a well established and trusted brand). Unfortunately, I found it very difficult to find what I wanted (i.e. polarized lens that completely cover the eyes) - there was always something wrong with the ones currently on the market (too tight, too loud, metal frames, large gaps between the eyes and frame, etc.). In the end I got these but may get a second pair in the near future. I'm not into the aviator/Tom Cruise look, though, and much prefer plastic frames (so I can sweat freely and not worry about a metal frame corroding with time).

    I prefer not to spend a lot of money on sun glasses because I tend to lose them every summer. I bought a pair of nice sunglasses from Marshalls for 9.99. I can't even see the brand name on them. They're not one of those huge ones that make you look like a dragonfly (which are so in lately). But they are cute enough and suit my face well. They don't offer the best sun protection but I mainly need them for driving. I hope they will last me at least this summer.

    I think it's important that you wear sunglasses every day when you're out just like you should wear sunscreen to block the UV light.

    Trebor, when you buy sunglasses you expect to wear them for 15 years? I mean, the frames corroding takes a hell lot of time.

    Absolutely agree with the fit! I wear the wraparounds for driving, which are just excellent. The polarized lenses eliminate the glare, and the way they fit on my face I often forget I'm wearing the shades at all.

    Thanks for tip - will investigate. I bought half a dozen pairs of Matsuda frames in that style in mid 80s - two pairs left! I've also found Cutler & Gross pretty cool for the vintage tortoise-shell approach over the last few years.

    Maui Jim. I have the Ka'anapali style - titanium frame that's very flexible, so even if I sit on them it won't do any damage. Also very lightweight - can't even tell I'm wearing them, and the polarization is superb.

    H&M does me nicely, considering my tendency to sit on them.

    It is known that there are an infinite number of worlds, simply because there is an infinite amount of space for them to be in. However, not every one of them is inhabited. Any finite number divided by infinity is as near nothing as makes no odds, so the average population of all the planets in the Universe can be said to be zero. From this it follows that the population of the whole Universe is also zero, and that any people you may meet from time to time are merely products of a deranged imagination.

    Actually, those look like Maui Jim shades - either the Ka'anapali or the next smaller style like that.

    The shirt is just a white button-down shirt - I'm not sure what you'd call that collar style, maybe an Ainsley collar? The difference is the shirt he's wearing is tailored to fit him extremely well.

    I love sunglasses - mostly Dior, Chanel ,D& G though I am still lemming those Tom Fords in black .
    I have a pair of sunglasses from 1990 - YSLs which I love and they still look great. My D & G's are my fave but they are looknig worse for wear now and they are only 2 years old. Not very well made I think . I have 'touch wood' never lost a pair .
    I can't find any pics in Tiny Pic to post so I'll get busy one of these days and snap a couple of those I have.

    I, too, just buy whatever's cheap and looks good on me. Longevity is not an issue - I can rarely keep up with a pair for more than a week. My husband, however, has a stylish pair of Nikes that he's worn every day for the past 4 years and they only now need replacing, but just because the nose pads have worn off.

    I've worn Oakley's for softball, then switched to Bolle's. Both are very good to go, maybe too good. I had to resort back to cheaper polarized glasses because the Oakley and Bolle lenses actually blocked out too much color spectrum and I was losing sight of the optic yellow ball we use in ASA. As a pitcher, you NEVER want to lose the ball coming off the bat.

    I no longer have any favorites.

    I got these Kors



    because they reminded me of my old Vuarnets from the 80s that fell off my head while I was boating....I loved them so much!



    The Kors are super comfortable, can double as a headband and have a remarkably clear clean lense, great for driving actually. I can still see my old Vuarnet aviators slowly sinking in the lake, glub glub glub

    Very nice sunglasses J !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Have I told you about the scent of jasmine? Have I spoken about the smell of the sea? The earth is scented. And I perfume myself to enhance what I am. That's why I can not wear a perfume that bothers me. Perfuming is an instinctive wisdom. And like all art, it requires some knowledge of yourself..."
