Exactly What I Was Hoping For... Jun 12, 2012
So I agonized over the decision to buy these for at least a week...maybe two. In the end I ordered the mock tortoise Clubmasters which have the 49mm bridge, and I am thrilled with what I got. I was worried about the following:
Q. Would they fit my face? Could I pull off the style? A. They fit perfectly. I have a small head (hold the sophomoric comments) which measures 7 1/8, and I was afraid these would be too big for my face from the pictures I saw. In fact, they fit my face exactly as I would have hoped. They look neither too big nor too small. As for the style, they're classics. They don't fit your face...your face fits them. It just happens. I can't imagine anyone not looking great in these.
Q. Do they have the G15 lens, and should I insist on polarized? A. These do have the G15 lens, which Ray-Ban calls a green tint lens. I wasn't sure what I would get because the description doesn't call it out specifically, and the pictures certainly look like a black lens. The optics in the Clubmasters are insanely clear. You see a slightly greenish tint from the inside out, and the rest of the world sees black from the outside in. Looking at these lenses, I can immediately spot the difference between an over $100 and an under $100 pair of glasses. The green tint is quite subtle, and is hardly noticeable. Also, they are not polarized, which I think is a good thing. I have a pair of $15 polarized Wally World specials, and I use those for outdoor activities which are potentially dangerous for my Clubmasters.
Q. Will I get a pair made in China? Will those be knock-offs? A. My pair unabashedly says "Made In China," and the quality is stunning. They are well-built, all the connections are tight, and both lenses sit tightly in the frames (no issues with a loose lens as others have commented on here). Anyone who has done just a little bit of research on these knows that the Clubmasters are now made in China instead of (or in addition to) Italy. China is like any other country: with the right management and workforce, they can churn out some good stuff. And apparently Ray-Ban has some great ex-pats running their factories, 'cause these are rock solid. I would absolutely buy another style of Ray-Bans made in China. They are that good. I looked at these under a microscope (metaphorically speaking) for all the tell-tale signs of counterfeit, but I was just wasting my time; these are the real deal. I'm 34 years old, and these are the first sunglasses that I have owned that cost more than $20. You bet I looked them over real good.
Other thoughts: I'm used to curved sport sunglasses which sit nicely on top of your head when you head indoors. Sitting on your head will not do for the Clubmasters, due to their shape. It's awkward to go indoors, because the question is what do you do with your $150 sunglasses (that we smart folks on Amazon paid $50 less for) so that you don't scratch them\lose them\break them? Don't know; haven't figured that one out yet.
The straw derby/panama hat craze is in full swing right now. Not my thing, but I seem to see them on everyone. These would look absolutely authentic and correct sitting just below a short-brimmed straw panama/derby. Classic, classic look.

Sunmasters Mar 22, 2007
By Robert G. Johnson
After looking seemingly everywhere for my favorite retro Ray-Bans (think Christopher Walken's father character in 'Catch Me If You Can'), and finally I try Amazon, and Amazon links me up with this seller and I am a happy man, finding exactly what I wanted. The seller provides enough info that you can get the right fit, something other Internet sunglass vendors do not do well. There was a glitch in the shipping (delay) but the seller promptly and courteously addressed that, shipping them overnight at no additional charge. Now if I could just get some sun!!! A strongly positive recommendation from me.

I absolutely love my Ray-Ban 3016 Clubmaster sunglasses!. Designed in the 30's and reintroduced in the 80's, the frames are a very sturdy nylon and the glass lenses are the classic G-15 grey-green tint used for years by the Air Force. I had mine converted into prescription glasses. The lenses are easily taken out with just a few screws and they are flat, which is perfect for those of us with astigmatism.

High Quality at Low Price Aug 17, 2011
I wanted a pair of Clubmasters to turn into my eyeglasses, but I did'nt want to pay the $150.00 price tag most retailers put on it. I looked at several local stores and the lowest price I found was $145.00. I was skeptical about ebay because even on the high reviewed "genuine" clubmaster sellers, their always seemed to be a review saying they were fake. Amazon was actually my last resort because I figured they would just have RayBan retail sellers at retail price, but this guy popped up and after reading all the reviews and seeing the $96.00 price tag, I could'nt really find a reason not to try. What I got was alot better than what I expected. These Clubmasters are TRUE, GENUINE, BRAND NEW RAYBANS and are completely RX-able. It comes with the sellers box, case, cleaning cloth, and booklet just like you would buy them in the store minus about $50.00 off the price tag. I was extremely impressed and reccomend these to anyone looking for a pair of RayBans but on a smaller budget. Even the optometrist was impressed!

The coolest glasses ever Mar 07, 2013
I love these glasses. They are the best thing I've bought on here. I can't walk by a reflective surface without going "Damn I'm cool." Then I take them off and I'm sad.
