    I honestly just go to a department store. I got a nice pair of Kenneth Coles and a pair of Ralp Lauren Aviators for real cheap.

    Yea i had a swap meet pair for over a year and a half. i bought them just to temporarily replace my Smiths that i had for like 6 years. Now i have a pair of Maui Jims Shakas that are awesome. I would check out the Maui Jims if you can. Also, even though you might find good deals online, i would recommend going to a store and trying some one before buying. I have a hell of a time finding glasses that fit me comfortably.

    Also, beware of cheap glasses because most aren't polarized. you don't want cataracts and shit like that later on in life.

    My old sunglasses were prescription. I loved those things, but drunken nights and my forgetting to pick them up when they fell on the floor demolished them. I think I stepped on them like 3 times. Finally bent the frame hardcore and said screw it.

    I'm not sure what kind of glasses.

    Ultimately I would like a pair of glasses to be active in and fun in and another set thats more professional looking that I can wear out, if need be in a suit and tie.

    Also ideally I wanted to be able to try them on in a store first and then search for the best deal.

    I like mine because they have a rubber piece on the nose pad so they stay on my face if i am sweating. i've worn them running and doing a lot of different stuff so far and they are great. They are also not flashy so i wouldnt be embarrassed to wear them somewhere semi dressy

    i'm not picky when it comes to my sunglasses. The only thing I care about is if the lenses are square so they can off-set my round face. I get mine here... Welcome | GattacaCorp.com

    I had some smith hudson's. They were cool but I smashed them in Cali on accident.....

    I'm looking at getting a pair of oakley gas can polarized, but the best price I can find is 150. I'd rather spend only another 50 on another pair of hudson's.


    But on maui jim's. They're tight glasses. My dad has two pairs, and aren't cheap in anyways. The polarized ones run like 200 on the internet for the most part, and 300 in store.

    surprisingly you can see rather well out of them.. the lenses wrap around a bit so you can see to the side..

    I like the small gas cans, but I don't know about the price.

    $50 for the ones I posted or $150 for gas cans..

    yeah.... I know.

    I really like them too. Like my hudsons are similar, surfer bulky frame.

    But if you know me in person, they're 100% my style. I rock boardshorts every day of the week as I go wakeboarding and wakesurfing every day of the week.
