    So I'm always looking for my next pair of shades...but I'm a picky SOB...
    Found these Tag Heuer sunglasses surfin around today, but they retail about 300 bucks.
    And I'd probably just lose them anyway...anybody got any recommendations?

    This is going to sound weird, but I only wear Prada sunglasses.

    I only buy a new pair of sunglasses every 2 or 3 years, though.

    And they're in the same price range as those Tag's.

    I wear Maui Jim's. MJ Sport to be exact.

    The polarized brown lenses make for great visibility.

    Those are nice, but where did you see them? I can't find those on the Ralph Lauren
    website...?

    Made by Luxottica.

    Also made by Luxottica.

    Luxottica.

    Guess what? Owned by Luxoticca.

    Need a prescription? Pearle Vision? Luxottica.

    Maybe you don't want to do feed the corporate machine so you decide to walk across the mall to Pearle's competitor, Lenscrafters, instead. Nope. Lenscrafters is owned by Luxottica, too.

    Oh yeah, Oakley? Luxottica.

    I usually just get some cheap-ass mirrored aviators off a guy in Chinatown, they're like $5 a pop, so I'll get like 5 pairs and just keep them in storage for when one pair inevitably gets lost or damaged. They look exactly like the kind you can pick up for 2 or $300 bucks, only difference is the construction is very cheap and they scratch easily, but if you're careful with them, they'll last about a year. Works for me, I'm not someone who likes paying exorbitant prices for "luxury" items that aren't actually worth it, mostly what you're paying for is a brand logo.

    I've been rocking the same old ass pair of Oakley "Minute" glasses for over 10+ years. They've been incredibly durable throughout a ton of vigorous use and I will always be attached to them until they give out.

    I used to work for Luxxottica here in Australia at OPSM. We were able to get 1 pair of free glasses a year so I built quite the respectable sunglasses collection - 2x Pradas, 1x Dolce & Gabbana, 1x Oakley, 1x Versace. I now only buy a pair once my old ones are scratched to shit seeing as I don't get them for free anymore.

    To confirm, they pretty much hold the monopoly over the spectacle/sunglasses industry.

    I had this (Maui Jim Typhoon polarized, wrap, very nice):

    [​IMG]

    Then the spring hinge broke, and it didn't sound like I was going to be able to get replacement parts via Maui Jim and didn't want to send them my broken pair just to see if they had parts where they sounded like they weren't going to give me back my pair.

    I then bought this (Oakley Pitbull polarized):

    [​IMG]

    So far, so good. The frame material I think I read somewhere was some nylon blend, which seems way more durable than the piece of crap brittle frame material Oakley used in their first Straight Jacket models and second version of Frogskins.

    I had these Oakley New Frogskins, but the frame was the brittle material again and cracked, but I really liked the lens size and coverage.

    The cracked frames make me wish I had a 3-D printer and could print replacement parts from nylon.
