So they're really light and I don't like it when people can clearly see my eyeballs through my sunglasses.

The blue gradient (polarized) lenses are better optically speaking because they are polarized. However they aren't as aesthetically appealing (no mirror finish).

Do you recommend the chrome sapphire mosleys? i don't really like the vivid blue color from the pictures i see online. I am leaning towards gray but I cannot for the life of me find a place where i can try on a pair. Where did you buy yours? also upon further inspection it seems that the pilot does not come in a gray polarized version.

What city/state are you located in? I got them from my optometrist's office about a year ago. I also noticed that sunglass hut started carrying mosleys as well.

The sapphire lenses are a blue color indoors, blue/grey outdoors.

I actually have the polarized brown gradient lenses too that I really like, yet rarely use.

For my more urbane adventures, I have a pair of stylish RayBans and some Serengetis.

Though I just noticed Costco had some Maui Jims for a bout a hundred bucks yesterday when I was buying dog food and coffee beans...

Costco's sunglasses are discontinued models with no warranties.
Although the lens quality will still be great, I was never a fan of MJ frames, not to mention discontinued MJ frames.

There's a Sunglass Hut in Pentagon City and I'm sure you can find them at Tyson's.

Hey these are pretty sweet for the price. They look more like the ones Audrey Hepburn wore too. I was going to wait til Christmas to get a pair of RB2140's but maybe I can make an excuse to pick up a pair of these. How are the lenses?

Right now my daily pair is the Randolph Engineering because they have a cool story, great lenses and made in the USA. Mine have the ear cables not the bayonets.


I also sometimes sport these Initium Pinkertons but the thing that annoys me most about them is that they don't come with a friggin case. WTF! They were a gift and I still like them.

I ball dem geller joints. Very nice, similar to the classic wayfarer but the more square shape suits my face better, plus I'm not just another dude in wayfarers.

Frames are silver. Not exactly what I would have picked if I had money, but pretty close, and they were clearanced for $30 at marshall's. I think I got a good deal.
