RE: What kind of shades do you wear?

Agreed, although I've actually had a couple pair of decent "cheapies". Right now, depending on the vehicle I'm driving, either Ray Ban, Revo, or Oakleys. I justify them since my Lasik surgery left me a little light sensitive and I really shouldn't skimp on my eyes, blah, blah............[8D]

RE: What kind of shades do you wear?

I got some cheapo "modern" aviators, they look alot like triggerfink's maui jim's.

Other than that, it's X-Factor Amber Saftey specs, Usually covered in filth from work. I do need to buy a nice pair of sunglasses though.

Any suggestions for something slick for a guy with a big melon?

Had a nice pair of Maui Jim's up until last week when I broke up a bar brawl my friends were in. Great glasses though, excellent if you're a boater too (no glare).

Ray Ban Aviators. All other sunglasses look like they are made for adolescents.

RE: What kind of shades do you wear?

I keep a couple nice pairs at home, and one in the car. Usually though, i just wear the cheap ones when i go out ($25 range). I lose or crush a pair every other month...

RE: What kind of shades do you wear?

Some Maui Jim knockoffs called Pacific Trader. My last 2 pair before this were MJ Typhoons. Loved them and had them for about 5 years (broke one, lost one) but now they are up over 200 bucks and that's my squeal point for sunglasses.

These were about 60 bucks at Sams Club, polorized glass lenses, good fit and seem well made. Tough to find glass lenses anymore. Even Wayfarers are plastic now.
