    What sunglasses are you guys rocking? I know PJ asked this a while ago but I thought we could just take a moment to refresh and see what people are wearing since the regulars and climate has changed since then.

    I have a pair of these, Sundog Attack sunglasses except mine are blue;

    As well as these more expensive Spy Lacrosse sunglasses from Spyoptic:

    Good thread. I work in an opticians so see plenty of sunglasses come and go, but never really find any that suit. I'm currently (well not currently because it's nighttime and I'm indoors but you know what I mean) rocking standard Ray-Ban aviators, and have done ever since the Johnny Knoxville horn on the golfcourse prank. Man, he looks cool. I look less cool in mine but meh they do the job.

    I need some new sunnies but know it's super important to try before you buy so can't buy them online.

    My shop does not cater for Marc Jacobs, so can't be using my 75% discount on them... d'oh!

    Currently rocking a pair of prescription Serengettis, but I'm getting contacts, so I'll probably need new lenses. Also rocking aviators.

    due to requireing glasses to see.. my choice of sunglasses is limited to a VERY VERY fiew.... .... either clip-ons (bleh hate them...) or prescription sun glasses at which point i see no point in getting anything other than something that makes a decent attempt at blocking all sunlight. So getting "generic" flat faced sun glasses to me defeats the purpose.

    i don't have a picture of them anywhere though....

    I used to have Armani's that cost me 800 dollars, they were on sale from $1000 (ordered them online) and I sat on them eventually. :lol:

    Those are some nice glasses you guys have, especially synthesis and Neshi, I like what you guys got. :)

    Those are some nice glasses Vance. I still don't know whether or not I should get these, as some of you may know I've been wanting them for a long time and I was planning on finally getting them for my birthday. They're Oakley Radar Path's, in polished black/grey.

    For $205 do you think they're a good buy?

    I broke my sunglasses and had to buy some from a shop at Seaworld, I was already half blind from the sun and there wasn't much choice, but they're still going so it was a good purchase. They're not an expensive pair... well they were but only because I bought them in the park :p

    $205.00 for sunglasses? A good buy?

    $205.00 is two months worth of food...

    That's about what mine cost. But, they're corrective as well. I'd never pay something like that for pure sunglasses.

    I think I'm gonna get these ones instead for $150, Oakley Batwolf sunglasses; as they have interchangeable clip on square Os of different colours.

    you can feel the difference in quality, not to mention the durability.
    I bought my Raybans (before the Revo's I got now) for 200 euros, but those glasses lasted me 10 years, until I crushed them.
    I left them in my backpack and forgot they were in there...

    It's still 2 months worth of food. I'd rather eat than look "cool"...
