    Right?

    And here I go, epic-ing it up a notch:

    Since I wear glasses, "all day every day" is literal. I can't be shifting around from one thing to another and I gotta see. So I just get pimped-out regular glasses. Not sure what the frames on these ones are, they're titanium, sturdy, but not crazy expensive. The lenses are polarized, "scratch-protected" (doesn't really work too well) and UV coated and they are Transition Xtractive, which is the good stuff. They get very dark fast in the sun, lighten up fast inside, and work to a degree in the car (most photo-chrome glasses don't). The lenses are pretty much the shit.

    ^^I look just like the guy in the link! No I don't.

    I have a pair. Great lenses. Too bad the frame is so bad, they're basically unwearable.

    Of COURSE they should. You would probably fall over if you knew how little it cost to make a pair of $300 sunglasses. It's not as if they are being individually handcrafted by a meticulous artisan...they're poppling out of a plastics extruding machine at the assembly rate of thousands per hour. The lenses, I'm sure, are a little more complex of a build, and then the tiny hands that snap the lenses into the plastic frames (a nine yr old's tiny hands, perhaps?). Tack on aggregate assembly costs, wages for the nine yr old assembler, fancy lunches for the factory managers, pay-offs to the police, etc etc, and it STILL isn't going to to top $20 per unit item!!...yet the things cost $300 in the store????


    The owners of the sunglass companies literally ARE laughing on their way to the bank. It's truly a manufacturer's wet dream.

    I would say it's all about the frames.

    QFT. I own a pair. They look great in a ironic Thomas Magnum sort of way. But the coverage is shit and they are, indeed, useless once the sun has raised above the horizon.

    Once you guys start talking about the greatest sunglasses in the history of the world i'll chime in. Original Suncloud SCR's. I happen to have hoarded many pairs. Not the current shitbag ones made today. "Winners always get Roses..."
