    Default Sunglasses

    I'm clueless, help me out here. I've never worn sunglasses, I'm considering picking out a pair. What's fasionable, what's dated? I like aviators, but if I went around wearing anything I liked I'd look like a dork. Should I shell out a lot? Is the money about durability or design, both? Will a cheap pair do? Fill me in.

    Unfortunately only aviators look good on me.

    I went with ray ban and have never turned back.

    Maui Jims live on my head 16 hours a day - I go nowhere without sunglasses. They are polarized and anti-glare and I love them! If you are prone to forgetting them somewhere though, stick with cheap sunglasses, you don't want to lose a pair that cost much in the first place. Aviators are popular atm, and nice because they wrap and protect your eyes from glare around the corners.

    Brown is nice for driving ... grey better on a very sunny day. I have both colors for differentiation.

    Right now I wear these, except in brown:



    And these:



    Looking at the titanium ones too ..... I do get a lot of use out of my sunglasses!

    Oh, and hair color matters. I'm blonde, so I don't really go for black sunglasses. Brown or lighter.

    Any person who is anybody ever has at some point throughout their career worn a pair of Ray Ban Wayfarers.
    Whoops.

    I have a few pairs but I wear my aviators most of the time. I like the aviators because they don't make me feel hotter in summer, they sit off my face a little allowing air to circulate. (Sounds silly but just try wearing a huge pair of vintage sunnies in the summer. They will steam up!) I like wire frames in summer and plastic in winter.

    I also don't like graduated lens tint. They are just annoying to look through. Best to pick a tint that matches your skintone imo (I like the honey brown tint for aviators myself.) I think it dates a little better than the reflective tint too and is a bit easier to pull off. (Not that the reflective tint can't look great.)

    I think the ray ban wayfarers (or the knock-offs) look really good on guys. These days, I think you can get decent knock-offs if you know what you are looking for. It sux to shell out a lot for glasses and then lose them.

    (Which reminds me, don't wear sunglasses on top of your head, it stretches them out and one day they will fall off and prob get scratched.)

    ^ I guess it depends on the shape of your head. I wear mine there no problem, no stretching.
