    Normal glasses.

    They have Transitions on them, so they turn into sunlight when it senses sunlight stuff.

    Doesn't work in cars lol.

    Oakley A-frame. Look good and well built, sturdy sunglasses. Pricey but you're paying for the brand.

    Coasta Del Mar Turbines, They are a little pricey, but they are light, durable, polarized, and they have a lifetime warranty... And its legit, I stepped on mine, paid the 8 bucks to ship it, they sent me brand new ones.

    I've got some RayBans with polarised lenses for driving. They're dark enough to be effective, but not too dark and the polarisation stops the glare of the sun that reflects off other cars. I'm half blind without them sometimes. And they make all the greens look even greener!

    I've got Ray-Bans too, my dad's an optician so he can get me nice stuff. I need to get some new ones though, mine are a little tired now (several years old).

    My optician gave me a good deal on mine as I was getting reading glasses as well. Mine are a little tired too, but not that old. I left them on a chair and someone sat on them! Took them back to the opticians and they bent them back for me.

    For reference: Old thread.

    I lost my everyday Polaroids :)() at the MR picnic (that bamboo was just hard to traverse) and picked up a really cheap and tacky pair from H&M to "replace" those:

    Still have the Oakleys (mentioned in the other thread) and my old pair of 20 year old custom made Lennon-style glasses:

    I own a pair of Maui Jim sunglasses with the HCL® Bronze lenses. The frames are flexible and durable. The lenses increase contrast (I can see details in the clouds on an overcast day) and do not distort any colors (like wearing black or blue lenses).

    They're outstanding shades and it's usually after twilight when I finally realize I don't need them anymore. I've had them for eight years now, so I'd say it was $300 U.S. well spent.

    I wear black-plasticy sports type sunglasses when I'm playing tennis during the summer. Got 'em for $8 bucks last summer. I need to get a regular pair for this summer though.

    I'm a nerd, I don't go outside. Therefore, I don't need sunglasses. LOL.

    Good luck finding some new sunglasses. :cool:
