So far I own 3 pairs from AE, 2 strands and 1 Park Avenue. Bought them all the same time.
I haven't had any problems with the quality, and they fit me well...however, I don't like the look or styling. The longer I go with them, the less I like the look. They're too round and wide looking, difficult to word it out correctly...there's just something about the whole look that's off.
What other "SF approved" brands do you have, in the same price and quality range, that may offer more options?
