    Oliver Goldsmith makes some pretty good glasses. They use Carl Ziess optics which is the best you can do when it comes to plastic lenses.

    I have a pair of Oliver Peoples and they are nice quality but I do not think I would buy them again. Maui Jim does not make the most stylish frames but when it comes to boating and driving their polarized glass lenses are the best.

    I also own a pair of Randolf Engineering aviators and they are good quality but style wise and they are pretty poor. I bought them for flying but they always put a huge line across my forehead so I do not wear them anymore.

    I want to get some nice tortoise shell sunglasses...I am thinking about some Persols.

    i'm looking for a pair of sunglasss that looks something along the lines of Barton Perreira the graduate, but wider, I tried the graduate and they are too small for my head.
    I also tried some Range Rover ones, and they seem to fit pretty well, but I wanted to know what other optioins are out there.
    thanks


    BP doesn't make many plastic frames. If you like the Graduate check out the INSIDER and the ENTREPRENEUR.

    Also check out Oliver Peoples ZED.

    Most likely picking up a pair of Rb Wayfarers or Clubmasters today. If they fit my face I will probably purchase the Clubmaster because I see less people wearing them.

    I find most Oakley's kind of ridiculous unless you're on tour in the military.

    Maui Jims have the best optics. Go someplace where you can compare them with other sunglasses and you will see. They kill glare and enhance color. MJ has excellent customer service too. It all comes at a cost but if you can justify the $, they have no competition. I like their styles too, mostly aviator variants.

    If you are looking purely for "fashion" sunglasses, something else may work better for you.

    They look pretty silly on military types. They should only be allowed on cyclists, triathletes and beach volleyball babes.

    Oakley has a lot of "hurr, x-treme!" frames, but there's some alright stuff in there. It's the gigantic plastic frames that get promoted, but I guess they just know their audience. [​IMG]

    (For what it's worth, I think 80% of the people who wear Aviators can't pull them off, and just wind up looking like douches.)

    Mercedes Benz has a pair like that with glass lenses if I remember correctly.
