what are some high quality mens sunglasses besides oakleys?
Ray Ban, Persol, Randoph Engineering, Revo, Maui Jim, Serengetti, and more
Do yourself a favor and restrict sports sunglasses to sports clothing
I used to have the pythons. Best lenses I have ever owned
by high quality i mean lenses
I just got these:
For lenses, there is Carl Zeiss, Nikon, and Rodenstock.
Someone posted an article a while back from an eye doctor that said photochromic (sp) lens were the best for eye protection. The only companies that had those lens that I could find were Oliver Peoples / Paul Stuart and Oakley.
Lots of confusion here between high quality and high priced.
Persol are nice and my dad wears these by Maui Jim
My favorite is still Oakley
I like the Serengeti Drivers lenses.
Oakley are usually sport glasses.
I see guys wear these with suits and sportcoats and it reeks of classless American Jack***. So wear your glasses and styles accordingly.
Does Oakley have a 'WT' nascar wrestling truck pull vibe if not worn for sport activity, or is it just me?
If you don't mind rimless, I highly recommend Silhouette Sunglasses. I own both glasses and sunglasses from them, the quality is great. Here is the link:
I've bought several pairs of Lunor sunglasses from Robert Marc in NYC and have been extremely pleased. The frames are very ightweight and the lenses are german optical glass. One pair that I own has telescoping temples which is a nice feature to ensure a perfect fit.
Maui Jim makes some of the highest quality sunglasses you will find.
