Sunglasses - Page 3

post #31 of 92
I think glass lenses are far superior to polycarbonate in scratch resistance (except for glass lenses with fragile coatings, like Oakleys). Usually, but not always, the glass lenses will have better clarity. I've tried some of the newer polycarb sunglasses and they seem pretty close to glass in terms of clarity. The one place polycarbonate sunglasses are undoubtedly the best choice is in lenses for sports or outdoor use, because their superior impact resistance will prevent them from shattering like glass lenses do.

Any recommendation of sunglasses that is elegant AND fashionable? The one that is long-lasting, of course.
glasses are not for dressy men...and rather bad for eyes in town

I love my glasses: Spy Neo Scoop glasses, supposedly inspired by the Ducati MH900e I'm thinking of picking up a pair of Rudy Project glasses.

Perhaps you can tell that to my optometrist.  He'd certainly disagree on the latter, and probably on the former as well

When you have no glasses you "close" your eyes by reflex and protect whem. With glasses, sun attack eyes in the sides when you wear glasses and you do not feel it... Too dark glasses have the same problem = you do not protect your eyes by yourself by "closing" your eyes but you are not protected at 100% So glasses must cover all sides of eyes..... 99% of glasses do not do this.

But you can't walk around with your eyes always closed...or can you?

There are wraparound shades, unless you absolutely refuse to wear them with a suit. My black Spy glasses are good for nearly everything. Oakley M-frames, however, may look a bit out of place with a business suit.

My local C21 currently has Oliver Peoples for $99. The RB and Persol glasses appear to be higher quality, though.
