    I've got black wayfarers which were awesome, but they got old and had to be replaced. After that, I got black aviators and brown wayfarer but I have to admit that I definitely love wayfarer much more. Also, brown glasses in wayfarer are suitable for cloudy days since they can improve visibility.

    I have a special limited edition Bausch and Lomb RayBan Aviator #RB8029K.

    These are not the commonly available Italian made RayBan Aviators that are made out of pot-metal and plated with gold-tone plastic.

    These were made in Japan and are 23K gold plated titanium. They are no longer sold as only a 10,000 pairs were made, thereabouts.

    Other than them being Japan-made 23K gold plated titanium frames, they look just like any other Rayban Aviator.

    I'm notorious at losing expensive sunglasses, so years ago I discovered the $20 "safety shades" from the big box hardware stores. Stylish, polarized, ANSI-rated as safety glasses, and I'm only out $20 or less if I lose a set.

    Anyone have experience with Liquid Eyewear? Thinking about getting a couple of pairs. One for work (poly-chromatic) and a regular pair for outside of work. I used the search function and only found one mention of a user having them, a while back. Thanks!

    Oakley RPM. I get migraines that can be triggered by certain daylight conditions or glare, especially on hazy days. I've found the polarized 00 Grey work best for me. They also fit my small face well.

    I've been an si member for a couple of years now
    Flacks are great & the si discount is a good deal. I've got a couple pr. with multiple lenses and love them.

    When I DON'T need my prescription glasses? Ray Ban aviator polarized for very casual walking around. If I'm spending more time walking in bright light, like all day -- Maui Jim Sports; also polarized.

    I'd like to get something like Ray Ban Wayfarer maybe in a tortoise shell with a lighter polarized lens or a gradient. Something I could be wearing even once I walk indoors but that won't leave me blind... just haven't found one versatile like this yet.

    L'chaim!
