Yup! Sorry, I didn't get back to you. I'm loving them so far. Where'd you get them? I got them for $98 shipped off eBay.

yeah i dont see how paying hundreds of dollars for some plastic and some tinted lenses can be justified. Wanna protect your eyes? Simple, dont look up at the sun. It does wonders for me.

this isn't entirely valid...
for example, when driving into the sun, what are you going to do, not look at the road?
also, it's not just looking DIRECTLY at the sun, it's often glare and things that you cant help to avoid

i agree that these things can be done cheaply (5$ pair at a drugstore) but then again, you could drive a 5k car to get from point A to point B, right?

For you it's not justified, so you didn't buy them, you have no demand for them. For others, it is justified, so they buy them because they have demand for them. What's not to get

wtf? that's like saying, wanna protect your skin from the sun? forget about sunblock, throw a sweater on and BAM! i bought my ray bans over some like $10 pair for the superior build quality, style, protection and convenience. the difference between a shit pair of sunglasses and a good pair is pretty substantial

i understand the importance of protection from glasses however, when they are designer glasses rather than prescription glasses then you are really just paying for the brand. I would rather dish out money for glasses that were made just for me to protect my eyes rather than have glasses that look good, dont protect as well as prescription and are hundreds of dollars.

have you ever heard of polarization? go put on a pair of $150 raybans or maui jims, or costa's and you will see the difference, i hate buying $10 pair of gas station sunglasses bc they fall apart as soon as i walk out

Not here cowboy. Those sunglasses are just about as queer a pair of sunglasses as I have seen. Then again, I'm not surprised as most shit that Prada and LV puts out is worn by 5' 6" 140 lb gay guys that wear skinny jeans.

Enjoy them

Lol at people buying 750 dollars sunglasses. I am sorry, but if you arent making 1mil+ a year, you shouldnt be wearing those. LV is for people who can afford that kind of luxury- LV-Rolls Royce- Bently

BMW- Maui jims- Oaklys ect....

Buy stuff in accordance to your income bracket.. dont be a poser lol

Lmao, I will pay the round trip ticket from MD to LA so you can see the gold art work that is designed on the top edge of the sunglesses. This sunglasses are so serious that LV has specific stories and continents that are named after the sunglasses.

Elton John is not even worthy of touching these. And Im happy they are not sold anymore. Cuz now they are worth way more
