    Call me cheap but I don't like to pay retail prices if I don't have to. I am looking for a pair of Maui Jim Ti Sports. I know I could buy them from Sunglass Hut but if there is a better place I would like to know. I am sure there is somewhere online that sells them. Does anyone have any experience with an online sunglass seller?

    EBAY... Always a great supply of Maui Jim TIs. If you buy from a reputable seller, you'll be fine.

    www.giarre.com. Never pay retail for sunglasses again. For my tastes, Maui Jims are sort of pedestrian. Try a pair of Costume Nationals. Crazy.

    Maui Jim Ti are great sunglasses. Sure, they don't have a trendy shape, but they are really great if you are looking for that "more pedestrian" look. Incredibly comfortable and indestructable.

    I buy sunglasses mostly for the optics, especially now that I'm getting prescription sunglasses. So long as they don't have some kind of universally-agreed-to-be-hideous frames, I go with the best available lens. For me that lens is Maui Jim. Best lenses ever.
