    Randolph Engineering has some nice classic aviation-inspired frames. Made & designed in the USA.

    Quoted for Super - awesome quality optics and frames to boot. I have a pair of the flat tops and absolutely love them!

    Maui Jim is a good company and they will repair your glasses for free if you break them which you seem prone to do. I have sent a few pairs to be repaired in the past. I do not think Lux owns them, but not 100% sure

    check out Sutro. They are by far the longest lasting pair of glasses i've had. sutrovision.com

    Where can you get Randolphs for only $30 to 60? I've only seen $130 and up.

    You might try Prodesign or IC-Berlin, my go to brands. Moscot and Salt, if you are into a more, um... classic, look.

    Because Luxottica is a HORRIBLE horrible company, if you have to deal with them after the purchase. They do not honor their warranties. If you buy a pair of sunglasses and they break due to a manufacturing defect, then you can just kiss your money goodbye.

    If you're working on the water or around it, get some costa del mars. They're the best lenses around, and they'll really protect your eyes. American made and independent.
