    With the summer rays bearing down, its a favored time to wear sunglasses.
    I wear them frequently. Have several pairs of Maui Jim's... expensive but nice and I take care of them. Have some inexpensive glasses if I'm working outdoors and probably still have some Ray Bans someplace.

    I have friends that buy expensive glasses with UV protection, some buy cheap ones since they get busted up or lost. What do you wear... whats the best ones this year?

    I still wear my Foster Grants. I used to work at a sunglass shop and I was amazed at the amount of people who would drop any amount of money for the latest fad. Even working there, I still could not believe people would pay over $500 for a pair of sunglasses. icon_eek.gif

    Well HK I am a Ray Bans guy. I have to wear small sunglasses....usually wire rimmed...pretty traditional. The big over sized frames don't work with me (I think that craze is over and not a moment too soon!). I use sunglasses primarily when driving or on the beach, but not walking around or playing tennis.

    I tend to lose sunglasses pretty easily so I try not to invest too much and like you I keep some inexpensive pairs around.

    I probably should be wearing them more being a Floridian..but I do not.

    I dislike sunglasses. There's already enough bullshit to look through to get a clear picture of things. Sunglasses get in my way.

    Revo - when I'm driving near sunset, reading at the beach, or fishing on the ocean.

    I have Burberry, Ralph Lauren, Oakley, RayBan, and Louis Vuitton. Depends on what I'm doing or going. I admit, I do like to collect sunglasses and watches...and I take care of them.

    I get the cheap ones you can buy at the mall kiosks that are like two for $20. I tend to lose, damage and break them.

    Oh, honey. I fit your face much better.

    Edit: mine are Ray Bans - Aviators (prescription because I am a "sexy" nerd)

    I have some Smiths and Oakleys. Mainly wear them if I am out in the sun. Since I live in Seattle, that translates into "rarely." icon_cool.gif

    For Driving I have a nice pair of Armani's-they were a gift. For the beach anything decent with uva uvb protection, because I have a habit of losing, destroying or giving my sunglasses away. I had a nice pair of Revo's but I have no idea what happened to them?

    I used to buy oakley and rayban but now I just buy the cheap ones...as long as they are polarized. Polarized lenses are great on the water and for driving, nothing beats their glare reduction. I wear them every-time I go outside in sunlight. When my eyes self-corrected to 20/20 my eye doc said to always wear sunglasses. Since I have light-colored blues eyes, she said they were more susceptible to sunlight and retina damage.

    I have a pair of Ray Ban aviators. Never thought aviators would suit me, but they do.

    Eye care is important to me; Ive had sunglasses since I was about 11. I find glare irritating so I wear mine even on overcast days.

    If you lived in Southern California (or anywhere with this much sunlight), you would wear them.

    I know they look douchey... but they really are a requirement.

    I'm rockin Fossil sunglasses. Got them on clearance for $50. They look similar to military style pilot sunglasses. But they're pretty old now and the lenses are a little scratched up. I think my next pair of sunglasses will be Oakleys.
