    These are my current sunglasses which were originally bought for snowboarding which has the rule of "the more flash and weird...the better". Although I am hoping to buy either a pair of Wayfarers or Aviators for my upcoming holiday.

    I have the same exact pair. The only difference is mine are dark gray, not white.

    I love sunglasses. I've had my share of mildly expensive pairs, like Oakley and RayBans, and I've also had pairs of dirt cheap ones to throw around willy nilly. In all honesty though, my most versatile, trusted shades are from a company called Knockaround. They're classically styled, reasonably priced, and, overall, decent shades, but don't expect the perks of a huge designer name (not necesarilly a negative). The guy that designs them is really good with customer service, and the lifestyle portrayed through his work is something I feel connected to.

    You can check them out here http://www.knockaround.com/ if you're interested.

    I would consider getting a nice pair of sunglasses but I hardly wear the ones I've got, because I never have a clue what to do with them once I set foot inside somewhere that isn't my house or my car.

    They won't fit in my pants pocket, hanging them from my shirt collar looks naff, and putting them atop my head is just plain ridiculous. Usually, I end up carrying them around in my hand and feeling like a...well never mind.

    No one else I know is especially bothered by this but it drives me nuts and I refuse to accept that this is how things must be.

    I just lost my Ray-Ban 3025 aviators.

    Thinking of buying Tom Ford 207's to replace them.

    I was in the same situation. Either the Ray-Ban 3025 or the Tom Ford. I went with the Ray Ban since I couldn't justify the Tom Ford's being double the cost and it being a very similar style.

    But yeah ...

    I was in a rut where I had a buy a pair of sunglasses (forgot mine and wasn't a good idea to be without them for the week it was so sunny) so I bought a pair of Ray Ban "New" Wayfarers. I'm actually surprised how much I love them. The original ones (I thought) looked ridiculous on me, but these are my new favorites.

    for aviators the recent Tom Ford Maximillion (brown) is my pick.

    I have two pairs of sunglasses.

    1. A cheap pair of brown Aviators. Darker and a bit different than these ones.



    2. Raybans. A bit like these.




    I also wouldn't mind having a pair of these bad boys. Based off the ones worn by Brad Pitt in fight club. But I would probably look like a Try Hard / douche bag if I wore these.

    Anyway, still badass.

    I am a big fan of sunglasses. Can't have too many in your wardrobe. Not kidding about this, at any one time I have at least five different styles in my car, ranging from dark dark to clear, jeans wear to suit and tie. Be prepared.

    Clear ones are really handy. Not only do they look cool, but they're great for keeping stuff out of your contact lenses when you're driving around with the windows down at dusk, or later. Check out clear Ray Bans. Very cool, appropriate for business, club wear, and lots of points in between.

    I'm a big fan of Ray Bans. I own many pairs. Only caution: don't buy the ones that have thin wire side pieces (the part that goes from the lens to your ear), or they'll get bent in a short while, and you'll be mad that you spent so much money on such flimsy shades.

    A great tip: the $10 sunglasses rack at Nordstrom. Their mirrored aviators are great. I get lots of compliments when I wear them. Sturdy, a great design. And yes, they were only $10. Can't beat it.

    Cutler and Gross are great! My brother lost my favourite pair of C and G sunglasses when he left them on a taxi roof... He borrowed mine because he lost his own in the produce section at the supermarket.

    It's more than twenty years ago, but it still annoys me.

    That is frustrating!
    They woulda been vintage by now.

    Marni is nice but they make glasses for ladies only.

    Although the website hasn't been updated to reflect this option yet, WarbyParker.com will add tinted prescription lenses to any of their glasses for an extra $50. At this time, those orders need to be placed by phone.

    Adding 7/31/12: Their site shows the availability of sunglasses now.

    I would love Maui Jims but all of their lenses are too big for my face. If I could find a pair similar to my Ray Ban RB34014, I'd trade. I like the polarization of the MJs.

    Can I send in my RBs to RB and get extra polarization for the lenses? I should call them.

    Definitely a huge Oakley fan. Their lens technology is simply unbeatable. Also a pretty big fan of Ray-Ban, and I do own a pair of Spy's. I own about 6 or so pairs of designer/brand-name sunglasses, but the ones I wear most are my club masters.
