sunglasses

Recommended Posts

hey, was just wondering what everyone's favorite pair of shades were...I'm trying to figure out what I want personally, so please post lots of pics of what you all like!

personally, im open to anything...i tend to like more women's sunglasses, but not ridiculously oversized ones, i like somewhat rectangular shaped ones, white or red or something that stands out...i really like it when i see some sort of nice design on the side of frames. help me out! lol

thanks everyone!

never really got into the whole fashion sunglass thing for some reason, I guess I'm not too big on accessories. Anyways when I'm driving or on a boat I wear a pair of Costa Del Mar Grand Catalinas which is just a is just a big polarized pair of tortouse shell sunglasses, they cut the glare in the car and especially on the water. If I had too many pairs of sunglasses I'd just lose them or break them or something.

I've bought two pairs of decent sunglasses in my life and I'm still rocking both.

1 pair OG Arnet hotcakes in black with grey lenses. Had them 11 years and they're still sensational.

1 Pair Smith sliders, bought in Sydney in '99. Went with Electric blue frames and orange lenses.

Recently thinking I want something a bit more casual and urban just to wear around town though. Anyone

have any suggestions?

I don't own a pair of these sunglasses, but I was really impressed with Initium Eyewear at last summer's Project show. Like I said though, it's not from experience. Anyway, I think this is the website.

Ill pretty much be buried in my wayfarers......you really cannot go wrong with them (for most people). They always have been, and always will be, the ideal cool guy sunglasses. I also have some black plastic dior homme black tie sunglasses, i think this brand is extremely underrated as far as their sunglasses go, all very stylish.

HAHAHAHA funny that NOBODY knows what the illest sunglasses ever are.

People here know about every pair of jeans but nobody knows the real shit when it comes to sunglasses.

CLUE: None of the above.

And I'm not saying either.

IT GETS WACKER BY THE SECOND!

Only people who dress in slim suits/dressy/classic attire can pull off wayfarers, they would look horrible with dunks/jeans.....make sure you try em' on before you buy them.
