Size matters! Nov 01, 2010
By A. Boston
I have a pair of new wayfarers which I love, and decided I wanted some aviators. I chose gunmetal grey, g-15 XLT, nice understated color, and not mirror lenses. But beyond being absolutely sure which color I wanted, I ended up being the Goldilocks of sunglasses.
First I got the small 52mm aviators, which ended up being WAY too small for me. I learned the hard way that the mm sizes is not specifically the distance across your face, it's the size of each lens. I have the 52mm in the new wayfarers which fit perfectly, so don't let that lead you to a size in aviators, because the size doesn't translate. So then I got the 55mm in the aviators and they were a tad snug on the side of my face. Then I ordered the 58mm. These seem to be the best choice for me and I realllly love them. They're lightweight and comfortable.
In the end, I learned the mm size will have a little to do with the distance across the face, being the lens get bigger, but it just wasn't as cut and dry as I thought. It's really best to try these on in person before ordering to know which size fits you best. Good luck!

Worth the money Apr 28, 2010
By Frank J. Perricone
After many, many years of buying $10 "cheap sunglasses" I finally decided to see if the people who said good glasses were worth it. Unfortunately, after dropping $[...] on a pair of Ray-Ban Aviators, only a year later, they got smashed in a bad bicycle accident. The fact that I ordered a new pair a few days later is a testament to how convinced I am that good sunglasses with glass lenses are worth it.
On the first day, a pair of Aviators don't feel significantly different from the $10 knock-offs. They aren't lighter, the image isn't clearer, the eye protection isn't better, they don't look better on me. But after just a few weeks of mild use, the cheap plastic-lens glasses start to get smudges and tiny scratches, almost too tiny to see. You don't notice it at first because it progresses so slowly and gradually, but little by little, the view through them gets muddled, they get harder to clean, and you start hating them, all without even realizing. One day you get new ones and the sudden contrast is striking -- wow, these are so much better! That's your only clue for how bad the old ones really had gotten by such slow stages you never noticed.
Glass-lens, good quality sunglasses are like that first day every day. They don't develop the smudges, the scratches, the difficulty with being cleaned, the gradual degradation of quality. The day that I lost them, they were as crisp and clear, they looked as good, they fit as well, and they worked as well as the first day.
If they cost ten times as much, they ought to last ten times as long to be worth it. And assuming you don't sit on them, lose them, or get into a bike accident with them on like I did, they should do that easily. But even if they don't quite last that long, they might still be worth it. After all, ten pairs of cheap sunglasses that are smudgy and unpleasant to wear for at least half of their lives is not as nice an experience as one pair that's wonderful every day.

Great Price! Super fast delivery! Love it! Jul 30, 2010
By M. Aponte
Love these glasses. Light weight; could wear for hours, in or out doors. Had ordered 55mm but a little bit too small for my face which is a little smaller than average. Perfect size 58mm. Best part, got it Super fast; ordered today, shipped within 2 hours, got it in a day. Will order from them again! Totally recommend it.

Colour Clarification - Size update May 10, 2012
By A. Apars
I purchased these for my 19 year old daughter. Just to clarify, because I was quite confused by some of the photos I looked at... In some photos, this pair of glasses look quite pink and even though they are not advertised as such, appear to be gradient. I really didn't understand what part of the pair is "silver". What I received is: gold frame, light brown lens and very slighly mirrored. They do not appear pink at all and I still can't figure out what is "silver" in any type of light. They are NOT gradient.The lens is quite light and even with the mirroring,looking at my daughter wearing them, I can clearly see her eyes through the lens.
The glasses have some weight but have a very fine frame. The arms are needle thin, yet the frame feels sturdy. I will keep them anyway, but I wish they had pink tint/mirror and were gradient with perhaps a darker colour of brown.
UPDATE- My daughter has had two pairs of these glasses in the exact same colour: 58 mm and 55mm. Now that she has the right fit, I can say that the 58 mm is too big big. the lens is large on her small face and they are too loose on her head. Altho the 55mm are only 3mm smaller, there is a huge difference. The lens ts noticeably smaller and the arm fit is much better. I would recommend the 58 mm for an average sized man and the 55 for an average woman.
