    I think these are my favorite looking, non-Persol, sunglasses with plastic frames. A pair of these, the Persol wayfarer style and some aviators, you would cover all the bases for sunglasses.

    RLPL sunglasses are also fantastic quality and there are currently good deals to be had online.

    I have always wanted to get a pair of wooden shades. Who makes these and how do you like them?

    They are made by a company called Shwood. I love them.

    Is the wood strong? I would worry about it breaking or cracking since it's so thin.

    This thread is just in time. I was just looking at some Persol 714s this morning.

    Persol wayfarer style

    What's the "wayfarer style"? The 2989 posted earlier?
