Im looking for a new pair of sunnies, I left my previous pair on a plane, IB.

I have always been an Oakely man, then a friend had a pair of Maui Jim and he said they are just as good if not better?

Which pair would you guys go for and why?

Cheers

matt

My last three pair have been Oakley, not sure why. I don't really look at the brand, just which ones best suit my face and I guess Oakley do for me.

Give me a cheap pair of $10 sunglasses. I don't see the need to spend a ton of cash on something I wear in the car or out and about on sunny days.  sarcastic

Oakleys everytime.

They are fantastic. I'm on my third pair in 12 years. My second pair Juliet Titaniums. I have them in Graphite with the black iridium lenses.




What do you mean you dont have any bourbon? Do you know how far it is to Houston? What kind of airline is this???

Oakleys all the way. I just got a new pair a couple of months ago. The pair they replaced were 7 years old and still in pretty good shape. Well worth the month and imo they look the best.

So you were wearing young children's sun glasses?

Oakleys!!! I have one cheap ass pair and they are pretty damn good. If you go for the higher priced frames you can't really go wrong (the slimmer ones). They all look pretty damn good.

Oakley has more atractive styles..................but Maui Jim has better optics in my opinion.

Black Flys Micro Flys for me. Of the two choices, go Maui Jim. They, along with Ray Ban, are the choice of California State Lifeguards and are not as obnoxious looking (or as knocked off) as Oakleys

I don't buy Maui Jim because of the polarized lenses. I have had Oakley in the past, and they were damn good sunglasses. Right now I'm on a pair of Nikes, and Adidas did last me quite a while too.

I go with the cheap $10 sunglasses too because I know I'd probably lose a $200 pair somewhere.  Smile
