    Ray-Ban Aviators with Ambermatic or Photogrey lenses. Finding them is quite difficult, but they are fantastic. They are very stylish yet use one of the best lense technologies ever...

    Oakley Nanowire. Best sunglasses I've ever owned. Light, stylish, nigh-on indestructible, and not Oakley-gauche.

    My pick for best lenses was Maui Jim; reminds me of the first time I looked through a really high end pair of binoculars.

    +1 Maui Jim. I got a pair last summer with prescription lenses before embarking on my driving tour of the South West USA and they're excellent. Hellishly expensive in the UK though.

    +1 for the Persols.

    I have the 2720's and the 2283's. The 2720's were in Casino Royale, worn by Daniel Craig for a few scenes...classic shape, and I love the silver arrow.

    Can anyone speak on the quality of Tom Ford's? I am specifically looking at the "Falconer" model.

    I'm sure Maui Jim makes great specs based on the reviews here, but I can't help thinking the brand name sounds like something I should being paying $10 for at Wal-Mart.

    Got my Randolph Engineering aviators a month ago and I love em with the wrap around cables. The lenses are quite nice and at $75 you can't go wrong.

    Definitely Persol: great quality and a classy look.
    Ray Bans are cool, and the Randolph or AO aviators are fantastic.

    Jean-Paul Gaultier. Have 7 pairs - one for every day of the week. Love the vintage aspect meshed with modernism of them. And as they are not distributed anymore in Australia, I alone wear them!

    I have a pair of ray ban's and a pair of diesel glasses. Neither were too expensive and I'd recommend either at that price point.

    Also though I like ray ban aviators too many people have them for me to buy anything similar to the standard model.

    unless your a cop or a marine then oakleys scream white trash. they remind me too much of vin diesel in pitch black.

    I just got a pair of Maui Jim Readers, sport sunglasses with bifocal lenses. Now I can read the map.

    However, Oakleys are great for their intended purpose, for sports. There are no other shades that perform so well during sports. They stay on your face without any movement and they cut down the glare and brighten the view.
