If you get the half jackets, pick the XLJ shaped lenses. A bit more coverage and they look more badass ;)

I now have one pair of xlj and one non-xlj lenses and prefer the look of the non-xlj's, although I admit they can be a bit distracting at the bottom depending on the light conditions, the normal ones are fine for running though if you want.

I found an old pair of Giorgio Armani glasses while cleaning up the house. I don't know where they came from, but they're in just the style I like!

 

I tried to find out what model they were, but I think they're very well out of production as the case looked rather out of fashion being brown with a green cleaning cloth... Yeah, I threw up a little too. Black sleek frame with blue lenses, these were closest thing I could find the shape and style:

Great to see Oakley fans... I myself is a big Oakley fan. I'm more into X metals than O matter. I have all the X frames (polished/carbon/plasma) in polarized, two numbered edition X non polarized  both XX frames (carbon/24k). My son has all of them now. X and XX are to be discontinued so get them while they last LOL. The half X are the only ones I cared less for, don't own one. The latest addition so far are the new X SQUARED in polished/VR28 and polished carbon/black iridium purchased last December. Gave the entire family Oakley sunglasses last Christmas (mom/dad/sis/2bros and their wives). This year, I bought in on the Elite series... the $595.00 PIT BOSS in RB and $1,400.00 CSIX (C for carbon and SIX as it is the 6th element). I only buy them in polarized since driving is part of my work. I never took pictures of them until wife gave me a DSLR camera last xmas

I've always been a Ray-Ban fan, and I know of Oakley.

 

I see Maui Jim in this thread among others.

 

Has anyone listed all the brands in one comment?  That would be interesting to see.

 

And how does one choose sunglasses?  I think the lens matter, but looks is a major part of the decision which isn't as important (to me) with headphones.

You sir are lucky to have a pair of Carbon Oaks.  I do not have the money or fortitude to convince myself to get a pair, but they look awesome.

Same here. I refuse to wear aviator sunglasses regardless of how good the lenses may be. Almost everyone has them and i probably look like a total idiot with them to boot.

I have an old Rayban predator (RB3142) in gunmetal with gray lenses. Havent used them for ages but i really like the model. They have a certain look to them, only thing is that i can hardly get it fit straight lol.

It has come to my attention that I have not contributed to the awesomeness of this thread. My collection is all prescription. Most of it is standard lenses (non-polarized) because when they were made I had a car with digital gauges that I could not read with the polarized lenses.

 

I should take better pictures now that I have a better camera :) Perhaps tonight.

 

I wear the Persols more than 95% of the time. They seldom leave my man-purse.

Have one pair of REVO from H2O series.

 

They have a really great clarity, there is nothing sense that something is between my face and world around me.

 

Also, since they are porized they provides very precise image. But could not say that they remobe all reflection, anyway in the bright weather when sky is open.

But they cares eyes from hard sunlight very well, for example i can look at the Sun wearing them. It does not mean that i can see at the Sun like at painting in a museum) wearing them.

But there is not that effect is you look at the Sun in summer in a sunny weather. At the same time, i can go with them in the evening without any inconvenience.

Fit is of medium comfort IMO, they could holded on the face better. But look is great)

Is there a brand that has a great polarized build quality?  I have a REVO H20 polarized but you can still see some glare with it on.

post #253 of 383

I think that next suglasses which i'll buy, will be Costa Del Mar or Maui Jim.

So many good reviews on them, and also, they looks great.

--------

I think that maybe Costa's will be better due to that they are made for fishermans. Because there is really much of glare on the water in the sunny weather, so they have to be really good made to do its work.

can anyone recommend me some good italian style aviators.

post #255 of 383

i think its need to decide what you want, is it only good looking glasses or good looking glasses with polarize, filters etc.

If you need only great look i think that you will be ok with most part of famous brands, but it will be much hard to choose good glasses in the second case)
