anyone have any recommendations for sunglasses that are relatively inexpensive (wayfarer price) with a similar profile as a pair of wayfarers, but maybe just a little more interesting?

CWG's have started wearing wayfarer's, so I feel as if I should try to eschew wearing them.

The Geller one's look nice, but I don't have that kinda money.

If these are over $300 you're out of your mind. they suck. don't do it.

Gellers are only $200 mang! They be quite cheap in the sunnies world. granted, i havent handled them -- so I don't know about the quality, so maybe it's just as shitty as $100 frames, but yeah. as for your responses:

h-vibz shadez

don't get those jeep. good suggestion for the answer to your question, but bad suggestion for you to wear.

yeah these. or maybe some alex+chloe

this one could probably work on you though. it's all about shape, and that vibskov one just doesnt work on you unless you want some lolz. trust..

Im wondering if these would be a good replacement..

for these.

the ones in the link look a lot better than the pic you showed. in fact, the one you showed in the pic made me feel sick so i deleted it from the quote. thanks.

it still amazes me how some people try to justify prices on luxury goods according to what they like.

they're around $200. is that okey azn8oi? if you really consider what we do, i mean really remove yourself from the situation, & consider how much we spend on designer brands, you would see that paying even $100 for sunglasses is absurd. but we do it anyway.

if i like the shit, & for whatever reason decide i want it, (like if i'm feeling fucked up, & bitches aint shit & i need something to pick me up lol), i appreciate the fact that i can. i really do, 'cause at one point, i couldnt afford to do so.

but thank you for the commentary. i prob wouldnt like the shit u like, cuz these shits are dope!

Yea the ones in the pic are for work. The only thing about the ones on the link it says they are for wide faces. Is that just a suggestion or a must?

everything said is always a suggestion. those frames do look quite wide though. in this case you should really try it on before you buy - or - make sure the site has a great return policy.

Thanks for the opinions, azn, I guess I may as well ride the cliché until they become universally regarded as something not associated with douches. I mean, while they are a timeless design, you can't help but be associated with corny hipsters or corny white chicks who live in metropolitan areas. if I was suburban (more so than I am), I'd be in the clear...

Regardless, I'm just gonna get wayfarer's. Maybe try and cop a pair off eBay with Bausch & Lomb lenses, gotta find them in my appropriate size though...

Can anyone say how the Robert Geller sunglasses are in terms of fit and weight?

I have a pair of Henrik Vibskov Andy sunglasses but I think they are a little too big.

It seems like everything I like and try is slipping off my face when its really hot and sweaty.

jeepster, I tried some Ray-bans with Bausch & Lomb lenses a few years ago but did not like them. The lenses make them heavy and they were uncomfortable after more then a half-hour and they would slip off my face really easily once I started sweating.

I used to have a pair of vintage blu blockers I wore when riding my bike.

they were actually super comfortable, I could wear them all day long. I ended up selling them on ebay to someone in europe for over $60 though.

billiam- going off this pic, i don't think your face belongs with wayfarers.

hmm. i think you might look pretty good in DUM's glasses though. or maybe you MIGHT be able to get away with ksubi ifoulds http://helloblackbird.blogspot.com/2008/04/ksubi-sunglasses.html . your face isnt the same as that model, but try it on to find out! don't take my speculation as a last resort though because vibskov wayfarers also actually fit big ass heads pretty well (lol but it wont work on you jeep, i think)

like, I have a long face, but since I'm a pretty large human being, I think my brow is wider than most (luckily not neanderthal-like though). What are the sizes Wayfarer's come in again?
