sunglasses dont work on me i got big eyes and a fat head... but if anything dont spend more than 20 because they will just get stolen again or break, if i had to choose though it would be a nice pair of oakleys radar.



or these wonderful eyeprotectors

An odd place to look for eyewear... But they have good prices and service.

I've got 3 pairs of Maui Jims and 1 pair of Oakley Juliets (polarized). The Oakleys are pretty nice, but when compared to my Maui Jims, I feel that they don't provide as much protection. The Maui Jims just seem to block out more and make it easier on my eyes.

I had a Pair of Oakleys Half Jacket. They too were stolen. After wearing those I will probably never wear another brand.

I have some juliets too, and they kind of hurt my head if I wear them for long periods of time. Its probably just cause they are so heavy..

Maui jims are old people sunglasses IMO. Some look nice, but most look prety lame. My next pair will be some polarized Smith's

j/k-i just buy $20 cheap-o's that look OK (cause none of them ever look better then that). Then when something happens to them I don't really care.

LOL. . .all in what you look for. Most are more mature looking, but that can be said with most brands. If you look at the MJ Sport brands, they are more styled towards the younger crowd. My latest pair are the Mauna Loa which uses a Flex-on frame and I absolutely love them. They don't look like "old people" sunglasses to me:

I personally buy el-cheapos, and get 3 pairs at a time, one pair breaks, one pair gets lost, and one pair lasts about 3 - 6 months...and the brand I have been most happy with are the Foster Grants...but I do miss my Gargoyles, now THOSE were comfy glasses

I love Arnette Swingers, have had probably 5 or 6 pairs of them over the last decade. Usually found for about $50-65.

My current pair is a pair of Persol sunglasses. No idea what model but they are very well made and not big. I like them, but there is a major design flaw which allows me to see between the lens and the frame on the top. Because it exists I go to Sunglasses hut (where I got them) every 8 months and get a new pair of them. I come in with the used ones and they give me a new pair, then order another pair. This is the 3rd pair of these I have had, at no extra cost to me.

I normally wouldn't buy sunglasses that were $135+ but I had some rediculous $75 off coupon, so I went all out (all out for me).

I personally LOVE Oakley. Ive had MFrames for active, half jackets, fives 2.0, fives 3.0, gascan, the new radars, twentys, etc etc etc .... Ive had a lot. As long as you keep good care of them, theyre an excellent investment and I personally wouldnt go to another brand. Never had a problem with quality or longevity of them, seeing as they last forever with a little bit of TLC.

Theyre constantly coming out with new designs, but if you like the big(ger) styled sunglasses, try out the gascans, weird name, but they seem to block everything for me.
