Strong Eyeglass advice

I have poked around and have seen a few threads with similar ideas, but nothing that really answers what I am looking for. I consider myself a well dressed man and I am a teacher, but I also work with my hands quite a bit. I am looking for some eyeglass frames that are very sturdy, but also look professional. Currently I have two pairs of Armani frames with the clip on sunglasses, however I worry that they are not as strong as I really need. Basically, I want a nice pair of glasses that I could also go camping with, sorry if that seems silly. I am considering titanium frames, but do not know much about them. I have a medium round face and probably require a 140 or 150 size. Any suggestions of brands or materials would be greatly appreciated. Thanks much for you consideration.

The choice of frames out there is quite large. A round face usually requires squarish frames.
My tip would be to choose the frame and get corrective tinted lenses made for them. I don´t need glasses myself nut when I couldn´t find sunglasses I wanted I choose nice reading frames and had tinted lenses cut for them.

Lindberg titanium frames are strong. Virtually unbreakable and very flexible. Silhouette from Austria do a cheaper, though not as nice version.

For me, there is no way to tell if a frame is going to look good until it is on my face. Online frame shops with the upload-your-own-face aren't good enough either.

How do the Silhouette glasses compare as far as quality, it seems they are quite a bit less expensive than the others.
Any other companies people think are good?
