Sunglasses

Postby JBE » Tue Apr 23, 2002 12:00 am

Just sort of a what type of accessory topic here...Was wondering what type of sunglasses do most of ya'll prefer as I'm sort of a shades guy myself. Right now I've been wearing a pair of Nike Fusion 6 and can't say enuff about em. Didn't really care for them at first but they really grew on me quickly..

I have been pretty happy with Oakley's myself. I'm on something like my fourth pair in about 10 years or so, and have yet to have a real problem... I broke my first ones, but that was after I had decided to retire them, so it wasn't a big deal... all my others have been beat up with no trouble at all.

My beater glasses are Oakley 5's and my good ones are Oakley e-wire with spring hinges. I love these glasses. I have had my 5's for like 5 years.

We recently picked up a new line of sunglasses, Native. Take a look at their website; http://www.nativeyewear.com/home.htm
I've tried them all on and really like the fit, the optics and the styles. IMHO... I like them better than Oakley and Smith, which we also sell.

My current pair are Bolle brand, the actual model is the Puff Adder. Got 'em for five bucks at a T.J. Maxx, but they still have 100% UV protection. I used to wear Ray-Ban Outdoorsman IIs all the time but you can't flip them up on top of your skull like the wraparounds.

I really miss my vintage Ray-Ban Caribbeans. They finally snapped in half after many years of service. Unfortunately, that model hasn't been in production in years...

Sears prescription for driving - Not fancy but hey, you gotta get by reasonably sometimes.

Smith Sliders or Serengeti Cascade Vermillions for biking.

I can't really wear sunglasses, as I would have them on top of my regular glasses. (Cursed 20/200 vision!) The flip type would work, but the looks just don't appeal to me.

Keepin' it real...real sharp, that is.

I wear Nike "Tarj" model. I got them at Sunglass Hut about 1 1/2 yrs. ago. They were about $65. I've enjoyed them, but would like something new. Being married though, my wife would be likely to say,"It's either sunglasses or a knife, but not both." I hope some of you out there can sympathize with me.

I bought a pair of Maui Jim Ka'anapali Titanium Sport somewhere last year.
Excellent!

Only, I could have bought at least 4 nice Spyderco's for the same price. But this was before the bug virus...
