    I need a new pair of glasses. I'm not exactly sure what I want to get yet, if anyone wants to offer up some advice. You all know how I dress by now. I'm kind of on a budget, can probably do $250.00 including lenses.

    regular: prodesign 3 pair

    sunglasses: cartier and maui jim


    Prodesign = Funky and good quality. Lots of colors that others wont use. (lime green, red, rose...)

    Cartier: High end, worth it if you like Gold.

    Maui Jim: (*Think Horatio from CSI Miami) Best bang for the buck if you want good polarized lenses. And the companies after-service is one of the best in the industry.

    Im new to the forum so I dont know how you dress. If you tell me how you dress, I might be able to give you some suggestions. Also what is your prescription? (reason why I ask, some frames are more suitable for certain prescriptions)

    My prescription is very minor. I am -1.25 in one eye and -1.50 in the other. Here are a few pics of how I normally dress.

    In the first pic, looks like you want something retro. In the second pic, seems like something a bit more sophisticated would work.

    There are a few lines that can be retro and still sophisticated. Try looking for some Boss plastic frames, Salt Optics or O&X frames. Your prescription is mild so you can go with any frames. Good luck!

    Salt Optics has a few pairs that look similar to that. Oliver people is expensive, and their styles are nice, but I dont know if their quality is worth their "extra" price...

    It is. In fact, the pair of Oliver peoples I ended up buying were only $315 and the "equivalent" styles in nearly every other brand were within $50 or so.

    I bought the Ari in gloss black and there was nothing else I looked at that even came close in terms of quality IMO. Just have a look at the hardware and you'll see.

    I'm very happy with my Nebbs. It's weird though because the tortoise frames definitely have a different shape than the solid ones.

    I noticed that... They are more rounded near the top. Hmmmm, what do you think? I might call them up and ask about the shape difference.
