    has anyone ordered from http://www.sunglassesavenue.com ?

    any problems/experiences to share? they seem to be much cheaper that other retailers, so I'm wondering if there's a catch....

    Gilt is having a Linda Farrow mens sunglasses sale next week. I have some credit on there and don't own any sunglasses so probably am going to check it out http://www.gilt.com/s/lindamens/bio

    Where? Ebay?

    I just wear Mosley Tribes Enforcers.. sold my Persol 649's in tortoise because they didn't fit my nose. Still looking for some plastic/acetate sunglasses.

    Aviators are so common that it isnt even "cool" now. Dont get me wrong, I have a few pairs too, but they are just like "chucks" now. They are so "uncool" that they are "cool". (If any of this makes any sense....hahaha...)

    Ehh, I'd say Wayfarers are more common than aviators now... Aviators were more popular in 2007/8. But they're all classic styles.. wear whatever fits your face best.

    Why does one need seven pairs of sunglasses? I guess you are SoCal so it's okay haha.. I would probably want two-three pairs (metal, plastic tortoise, and plastic solid) and be done with it.

    Yeah dude, chucks and jeans and shirts too...so common right?

    Socal likes to invest money in his wardrobe. If I was making enough money, I would probably do something similar...it's fun to have lots of options, especially with accessories.

    Only problem is Wayfarers and Rayban Aviator style are both copied by everyone. If youre looking for that style and want to be unique, look into vintage sunglasses like Carrera, Dunhills, Cartiers and so on. They look better and the quality will surpass almost all the glasses made today.
