I only wear Ray-Ban and I have a lot of them. My favorite one at this moment is The Marshal.



What are your favorite sunglasses?

Mostly Ray-Bans here, the new wayfarer in flat black are my favourites. And Oakley sometimes for a change.

I have a 10 years old pair of sunglasses form back when matrix aesthetics was still a thing. I am repeatedly told that they are out of fashion, that they make me look uncool and that they make a very effective contraceptive device. I tell them that they can pry them off of my cold dead head.  :D

Anything low cost, with UV protection, that does not make me look too unatractive

I'll snap a photo of mine later when I head to the gym. No face though, I don't like it hanging around interwebs...  :D

My previous Ray-Ban flew off my head into the ocean some time ago, if you're interested it should be somewhere between Port Angeles, WA and Victoria in BC ;)

Current sunglasses are Ray-Bans as well. No idea what model.

Mine are prescription and polarized so I can fish with them. Usually I black plastic frame similar to the Wayfarer, but with a bit of a wrap around bend.  In the summer I keep them on with either a black cord or, if kayaking, orange neoprene floating croakie type things.

I have a few lying around. A Rayban, a Maui Jim, a Versace and a cheapo Northweek..
Plus my reading glasses have a layer that darkens in the sun
There are on average 300 sunny days every year on the Costa, so you need to protect your eyes well.

Funny, but today it is raining

I lost a pair of Oakleys once, while on a rollercoaster ride. I think the people that operate rollercoasters find a lot of stuff under the loops and bumps...

Do you like that? I hated it that they didn't work in the car. And it takes way too long to go back to normal when you go inside…

I wore Ray Bans for years and years, I have some Oakleys now (thermonuclear protection!), but honestly I don't wear them much anymore, they get in the way of my reading glasses. 👴🏼

Solar Shields baby! The big ones too. For rockin' like I'm in a retirement home. 8)






I only wear them driving and use them as safety sunglasses during yard work.

Julbo mountaineer sunglasses, my eyes are very sensitive to bright light so I gotta cover as much as possable, and the mountaineer glasses have the side shields and even the cover over the nose, work great!

My dad was an optician, so that's one of the reasons I have so many glasses. Because I only wear one brand one of his colleagues always calls me 'SeRay-Ban'.

I used to wear raybans...

https://www.ray-ban.com/australia/sunglasses/RB3498%20MALE%20009-rb3498-gunmetal/713132582558?category_Id=302195


(good luck with the website, it is the exact combination of self indulgent smurf and utter lack of navigability that speaks to today's shopper....apparently)

Then I got sick of their price and their Bullsmurf, so I got some oakleys....

(an equally disgusting website. Apparently the category is "performance lifestyle", which makes me feel like their marketing department doesn't speak english as a native language.)

I couldn't find the same model, but more or less - https://www.oakley.com/en-au/product/W0OO9408?variant=888392338617

now I get Cancer Council or Ugly Fish or Mako. They cost 1/6th the price, are probably made by the same unpaid children in some crappy factory, work just as well, and people are less likely to steal them.

I wear sunnies more or less every day - I'm often moving from daylight to low light areas, so they are on-and-off and get scratched a lot, and not too many $300 pairs of sunnies float....

Well, Ray-Bans are made in Italy. No strange or crappy factory involved.

Like I said, my dad was an optician and we had our own store. So maybe I have a little bit more info…

What are your favorite sunglasses?

I do have a non prescription pair of vintage vintage Ray Ban Aviator type sunglasses around but since I don't really bother with contact lenses anymore, I haven't used them in a long long time.

The car thing is annoying but other than that they are great

Cheap Oakley knockoffs for me. 

I lose of break sunglasses often, and so I have a hard time justifying spending decent money on them.  I did have a nice pair of Hobie sunglasses for years, but they were eventually stolen out of the Jeep.

I usually only wear them while driving so they never actually leave the Jeep because I lose them so easily.  When I am not driving I usually just squint.   :facepalm:

If it gets really bright when driving I have a set of those clip on ones I can use, but I rarely use them
