Wherever you go, don't go to Kelly Akram or whatever her name is @Cours Mont-Royal. Biggest rip-off ever. Their retail price for the Dior Homme Black Tie 104/s sunglasses was $400 CAD. Price is 200-250 anywhere else in Montreal.
Albert Hazan has some good stuff...Got my Dita's there. Didn't shop so much there since I knew what I wanted but he's also got TFs, Cartier, and the usual stuff you can find at any optician in montreal. His lenses aren't the best though. Anti-glare, my ass.
I've heard some good stuff about Alain Assedo (4933 Sherbrooke West) and I used to know this girl who worked in Les Barniques, or something like that (small store on University street... between Ste Catherine and RenÃ©-Levesque) and apparently she says it's amazing.
