Bryan loves Oakley sunglasses. I have a cheap pair from Walmart myself, but only because I really need to get some prescription sunglasses and didn't want to spend the $$$ on a pair just to get prescription sunglasses later. I do plan on getting Coach frames for my prescription sunglasses, though, since insurance will cover up to $200 for frames and I recently learned they are $225 at my optometrists office. :nanner: I just have to cover the extra $25 so why not? :hello:

I enjoy free sunglasses as much as possible. My gf actually got me $25 Neff sunglasses last year. That's the most I ever will/did spend on them.

Kristi bought me new sunglasses for Christmas. In particular, the pair I was ogling at the Oakley Vault last August. Wiretap with the emerald iridium polarized lenses. I'm spoiled.

My new Oakleys that were bought in MB last August while on vacation, were stolen out of my vehicle, in my own driveway! Now my vehicle locks automatically when I leave it :smash[1]: ! Only had them a month!!

Billy Gibbons summed it up best for me:

Quote:
the choice is up to you 'cause they come in two classes
Rhinestone shades or cheap sunglasses



I'm a cheap sunglasses kind o' guy, since I do a lot of boating and the more expensive the sunglasses, the stronger the pull of the sea.... My anchor doesn't sink as fast as a pair of $100 shades. :dontknow: But I have a prescription pair for driving. I fortunately have not had Ron's experience (yet) !

I have a pair of Oakley's that are used only for driving and in safe conditions only when out of the car. I usually only wear them outside in situations where I know that they will be staying on my head. I wear cheap pairs if I'm out closer to dark or if I know they are going to be on and off quite a bit. Beach time and pool time is almost always cheap pair times.

I have a pair of Costas that I wear fishing and Oakleys for everyday wear. I check Oakley Vault every now and then because they run some good deals on there.

I can't even begin to tell you how many pairs of expensive sunglasses we have bought between Doug and Ryan :roll: Doug has to have a different pair for golf, mowing the yard, driving, etc. Ryan just loses a pair about twice a year. As a matter of fact Doug and I went to Pigeon Forge last weekend for a little get a way and he came out of the Nike store with a new pair. I just roll my eyes and go on. I have never paid over $20 for mine. My last pair came from TJMaxx.

I like Oakley's but not many of them fit my giant melon. I own two Gascans, one with Blue Ice lenses and one with Ruby Iridium. Don't like them for driving though, they totally block your peripheral vision.

Also have a pair of Randolph Engineering Concorde's with mirrored lenses and bayonet temples. Good stuff, love aviators.

Last year I was on a quest to find the best polarized glasses for driving. Seemed like the popular opinion online was that Serengeti made the best...I tried them with the "Driver's lenses" but I couldn't stand the red-ish tint on everything looking out of them. Then I saw Dillon Optics suggested on a car blog I read. They're polarized and have a matte finish to diffuse reflection. Hands down the best sunglasses I've ever worn, awesome for driving and they look good to boot. I have the George with silver lenses, they're pricey but well worth it for driving alone.

ya know phroggy,I used to wear Ray Bans and Oakleys,but I would always break them or lose them.So now I just buy the cheap ones in the middle of the mall for $10. They last for about 2 years,and do the job,just fine. I guess Im too careless to have nice things :oops:
