    i have a pair of raybans with prescription lenses, very comfortable and not too sport looking, which i like. Also have oakleys for messing about on holiday and in the park.

    I have a pair of Oakleys, and personally I dont rate them. They are good sportswear glasses, but for some reason I dont get on with them.

    But I also have a pair of Police sunnies, and I have to say they are the best pair I have owned. The lenses have an ideal tint on them, the frame is light and comfortable, and they look nicer than any pair of Oakleys.

    Mine, used to have a pair of straight jackets until I sat on them :(, would say these are a lot better than the straight jackets I had but the straights were easier to wear.

    edit: Also had a pair of ray ban aviators which I dont like, they just dont cover my eyes at all, when I wear sun glasses I want to know its for a reason (protect eyes) and not just to look cool, imo oakleys are the best around, but if you dont want to fork out for them look at bol

    Bol? I googled that and couldnt find anything. Do you mean Bolle? imo I think Oakleys are better than Bolle.

    I've got a black pair of Juliets with polarized black iridium lenses.

    I love Oakleys :)

    I have a pair of the Oakley Why 3's. They're damn good, if a little pricy. For snowboarding I have a pair of half-jackets.

    I'd say it's worth actually going out and trying some on - even if you don't buy them in the shop you'll know what you're after. Even the best shades will make you look like a fool if they don't suit you.
