Is there a middle ground ($ wise) for sunglasses?



I hate how sunglasses are either pieces of junk for <$20, or designer shit that's $300+.

Last summer I managed to lose my only pair of sunglasses, they were Guccis and I lost them within 2 months of getting them *sigh*.

Don't feel like dropping THAT kind of money again but I need something... and I can't seem to find a decent pair. Like I said things are either dirt cheap (and crappy) or very pricey.

Oakleys and Ray Bans etc are kind of a middle ground as they have *some* pairs for <$200 (the entry level ones), but I was hoping to get something at least "okay" for like $100...

It might just be that I'm not looking in the right places, so, what are my options in that price range?

One of the more stupid comments I saw recently..

As far as price, you get what you pay for, I'd go with whatever you like but then make sure you don't lose them, then $300+ is worth it

Well there are only two guys that wear sunglasses, gays and douschebags, but I guess that's not surprising from BMW owners

Anyone know where I can find a cheap European purse?

Same thing applies to guys that wear flip flops.

100 is a lttle too low from what i have seen. i havent seen any nice ones for under 200. I pais 290 for my D&G ones and 350 for my burberry one. and tha wasnt even their best ones.

If u want decent looking shades u might wanna spend at least 2-250...

Thanks guys, yeah it looks like I'll have to bump my budget a bit and get some Ray Bans for now.

That being said, any good stores to shop at with decent prices ?

Well its more than obvious you were either smacked around by a guy better looking than you or someone stole your girl friend and he obviously had designer sunglasses

Sorry about that!..........actually im not

Speaking of douschebags

i used to have $350 glasses, a friend stepped on them and broke them. I got them replaced with $10 glasses, and everytime I lose them or something its no big deal. I don't like worrying about expensive sunglasses, but that's just me. However, my normal eyeglasses are quality.

I'm on my second pair of RayBan sunglasses and I'm not impressed with the quality nowadays. My dad's aviators have lasted almost decades and mine are scratched to sh!t. I got mine for around $200 a few years ago from the bay but I'm sure you can snag a pair off ebay for much less than that.
