Sunglass-Fi? - Page 19

post #271 of 409

No, not really. Swatch owns Omega. VW owns Bugatti. Doesn't mean that they aren't worth any more than their cheaper brethren.

So far I'm stuck between the Revo Discerns and Maui Jim Southshores.  I really like the way the black MJs look:

What are some good sites to order sun glasses from?  Resellerratings isn't being much help and I see some that have these Maui Jims much cheaper, but have no idea if they're legit businesses.

Maui Jim lenses are very nice.  I have that same pair and love them.  Nosepieces need some tweaking tho.

I am a real fan of the Maui Jim's. Got in the car with them on. Wondered what all the dust in the air was ....... it was the dust on my windscreen - I just couldn't see the actual glass with the sunglasses on. The glass almost becomes invisible. Plus the fact that colours do actually look better and you get increased contrast. I wear mine all of the time now.

Thinking of using to buy them, only three reviews on Resellerratings but they're all 5 stars.  They are also one of the cheapest places, selling them for around $189 shipped.

Damn it, Sunglasshut didn't have the Southshores in the mall.  Of course they wouldn't, since they're the ones I want.


Looks like I'm blindly buying them, depending on return policies.

I have had some Oakley flak jackets in the past, also some prada sport sunnies.


At the moment I have Oakley 4-Legged Frogskins Violet Iridium


These were quite hard to find, but definitely worth it.

I own the cyclops Xmen oakley replica sunglasses but they do not come off their stand ;)

Just got my MJ South Shores today, love them.


Question about the case if anyone else has Maui Jims, inside there's a little ledge that looks to press down on the arms of the glasses, I assume it's to keep them stable in the case and not flopping around.  I just want to make sure that's right, I don't want it to be pressing down on the arms if it's not supposed to be.

Luxottica hardly makes 70% off all the sunglasses out there. ;)


They own a lot of the entry-high-end companies, but there are hundreds of other companies out there and not to mention the knockoffs!



On a side note, I recently picked up a pair of Oakley Inmates.

I just sniped a new pair of Ray Ban Aviators for 50$, those had been on my list for a long time. And for 50$ it didn't take me long to decide

I have a pair of Oakley Felons that I've been sitting on for a long time to put in Rx lenses.  Pretty much the same as the Felon except slightly narrower and squeeze the skull a bit more.

I owned a pair of these as well, wore the things everywhere. They were by far the best pair of shades I've ever owned and fit perfect. Unfortunately someone stole them about a year ago. Needless to say I was a little pi$$ed!!
