    Right now I have a cheap pair of polarized aviators. Sunglasses is one item I tend to lose on a regular basis so I rather lose cheap than expensive...

    @isoarska: ZZ Top said it best. 'Get yourself a pair of cheap sunglasses...'!

    L'chaim!

    Oakley flack jackets, but can't locate them right now, so no pic.

    when I bought them, approx. 2011, they were the Oakleys I could find that fit my head shape best. Not great, but very good. Tried another pair in Singapore a year or so earlier that fit like crazy, but I wasn't really looking for new ones at that time. Regretted that when my sunglasses broke a little while later, and I didn't even remember the model name.

    Mine are some Prada Clubmaster-style frames with polarized lenses. They look great and work great, just a bit heavy. Might get some lighter ones sometime.

    I have a fat head so these Maui's have become my go-to pair.

    Wiley X Rebels. Very light, very strong and great lenses. Replaced my Oakley's. I have a smaller head, so these fit me much better.

    I got my newest sunglasses at Ace Hardware, $10.59. They work and are comfortable.

    I have a pair a Wiley X Saber Advanced that I alternate with a cheapo pair of square-ish/rectangle-ish aviators. I need a different good pair though, the Wiley Xs hurt the bridge of my nose and give me a headache after awhile.

    WileyX SG-1 with Revant midnight sun polarized lenses. This is my 3rd pair. I received my 1st pair from my brother when he returned from his first tour in Iraq in 2002. I love these. I get about 8 years each out of them before thy break.

    That's one reason why I wear Native Eyewear. The other major reason is I frequently break sunglasses and the lifetime warranty is $30 + postage with a repaired/replacement pair within a week.

    Maybe I try on a pair of Maui sunglasses.

    Been wearing a pair of Smith Maverick polarized for the last 8 - 9 years. The nose pads are pretty much gone, the lenses have seen better days and they're just not super comfy anymore. They still work fine though. I keep them in my truck for the short trips I don't want to bring my new cased pair of shades or for when I forget the new ones.

    For my new ones, I've upgraded to a pair of Smith Envoy Max with the Chromapop+ polarized technology. They're pretty sweet but expensive. The clarity is incredible too and the comfort is excellent.

    I've got new issue spending good money on shades. My shades, phone, wallet, knife and keys are 5 items I've never lost or broken. Unlike my girlfriend...she could lose an elephant in a 1 bedroom house LOL

    I tried Oakley's, but between none of them fitting properly, the lenses scratching at the slightest hint of dust in the air and Oakley's arrogant customer service I'm sticking with Smith from now on.

    Wiley-X Saints. But I just ordered another pair of Oakleys - the Flak Jacket SI's. Love the glasses, hate the loud logos so the SI's are perfect for me.

    I've been wearing my 58mm American Optical Generals a lot lately.

    In gold plate frame, of course. Gotta have the MacArthur look.

    I am semi albino so my body doesn't have any pigmentation or it does just very little. I have white hair, white skin and bad eyes (but my eyes are blue not pink like full albinos) so my eyes are sensitive to light and glare. The glasses i tend to go for are tinted and polarised. And the glasses i used to buy were oakleys flak jacket. Then my addiction to 5.11 gear led me to their CAVU glasses (designed by wiley X) that are cheaper and a lot more sturdy. And now i wear them pretty much all the time. Bonus is that they come with a molle attachable case and a neck cord if they are not around my neck they are in the case attached to my bag.
