Bad ass SUNGLASSES THREAD!

Ok so this thread is dedicated to bad-ass sunglasses. Post your favorite!

Rules:


1. Include the BRAND + specifics (color combination, what model they are etc) in case someone likes them enough to get a pair themselves

2. Post where to GET THEM
3. Post the $$$ PRICE $$$ they are
4.
POST A DAMN PICTURE OF THEM!

Here is my submission:

Oakley A Wire Gunmetal/Red Iridium Lens... MSRP $ 160.00... but the only place to find them now is eBay and you have to get lucky... they are not an easy find. I got lucky and found one pair and then my douche bag friend lost them! I have yet to find another pair!

Sounds like somebody doesnt value their eyesight.. But I guess there are some glasses that are under 50 that are safe... just hope you dont buy the ones off the streets or 5 dollar pairs... esp if you plan to wear them in direct sunlight, theres a reason why there are UV filters now.... thus making the glasses expensive, along with the branding.

I started buying name brand sunglasses since I was 19. then I stopped because I couldnt afford them and I couldnt take care of them. i tried to switch over to the $50< sunglasses but they sucked. they're not comfortable. the lenses werent clear(most of them were too dark) and no protection. . they would always get smudged and fogged up. You definitely get what you pay for. I still use the cheapos for riding my bike though. I had some fly right off my head before.

That's just pathetic. I can understand paying good cash for good lenses but not for the name brand frames.

That 2nd pic... oakley should make some leather wrapped sunglass frames. Then it would match your car steering wheel.

Those X-metal Juliets are practically indestructable.

I wanted to see a pair, and before I even knew wtf they were the guy pulled em out of the case, set em on the counter and drove all his weight on them as if he was giving chest compressions. NOTHING happened to em!
