Corny? Each of the guys on page one influenced millions of people around the world regarding their next sunglass purchase. The sale of Wayfairers skyrocketed from virtually zero right after the release of the Blues Brothers and Risky Business. Prior to that nobody had worn them for 15 years!

It is sunglass history..................

I'm a terrible buyer/collector/hoarder of sunglasses. Obviously aesthetics are subjective but in terms of outright quality, it's very hard to beat Serengeti.

I'm currently wearing a pair of their polarized driver's lenses in the car which are spectacularly good for driving (amazingly ) and a pair of non-polarized 555nm lenses for general non-car wear. Both are excellent - glass lenses, solid construction and fairly classically styled (although they do both lenses in a multitude of styles).

My poor Oakley, Ray-Ban, Persol and Oliver Peoples are mostly confined to the drawer these days.

Some examples of the Serengetis I have:

Can anybody suggest some places to pick up sunglasses in Hong Kong? I'll be there mid May and would love to pick up some new shades.

Picked up a pair of Persol 714s and wore them on a trip to Cali last week. Perfect.

I don't actually wear their shades. I wear their folding reading glasses.

To think that I went to that particular optician to get a pair of Cutler & Gross sunglasses, but when I tried them, realized they looked really weird. So, I was handed that pair of Retrospecs to try on and it was an instant match.

If you're in DC, go to Insight Opticians. Tony will take good care of you.
