    This seems a little silly but what sun glasses do you guys wear? Are there any Ferrari logo sun glasses? My sun glasses were stolen and I'm not sure what to get as a replacement.

    Personally, I like Oakley & Nike for sports activity. For general wear anywhere, I like Prada, Gucci, Bvulgari, & Dior.

    Good sunglasses can be worn inside w/out much problem, I noticed. Just colored lense only blocks light, so you can't see anything inside a building.

    What is your purpose for wearing shades? There're many types to match your application, so I would recommend going to sunglass shop to try them on, and ask questions. Unfortunately not every salesmen are well knowledged, so if they seems to know not much about glasses, go to different store.

    Oakleys for me,I used to wear only Ray-bans but to be honest got a bit tired of paying high prices for sunglasses that kept coming apart or breaking(with 3 different pairs)

    I never go anywhere without them. I'm about to have them make me some with prescription Maui Jim lenses.


    Once I tried polarized lenses I can't go back to normal lenses.

    I got some BMW ones when i bought my M3. I sold them to the kid working in spare parts in the dealership because the Dealer was too tight. He still wears them to this day. I knew there was a reason why my car always get serviced faster than all the other cars!!

    I have had Oakley Romeos for about 5 years now, they are great. I also have a pair of XXs but I don't wear them as much.

    Yes and no..... I have had the Romeos for a few years now and the only really noticable scratches are from a time I dropped them on a sidewalk and they landed lenses down. oops... They are pretty small, aren't really visible unless you are looking and don't interfere with my vision at all so I don't worry about it. The only real problem I have had is that there are some small cracks which are almost invisible on the edge of the lense near a joint in the frame. When I stopped by Oakley headquarters (in SoCal) a couple weeks ago they said it happens sometimes with the early models and offered to replace them with a completely new pair for $40. It seemed like a fairly reasonable offer considering they were $250 new and to get a set of new lenses (to replace my very lightly scratched ones) would be $80.

    I did have a problem with my XX frames but they replaced them right away. I kind of suspect it is related to my head size, I got a big head and I think it kind of tweaked them out of shape. They come with adjustable joints and the replacement pair is adjusted a bit larger and should be fine.

    My latest pair is called the "Big Square Wire" I think. I got them with a lense color called titanium clear which has only a very faint mirror effect. I got them to help keep my eyes from drying out when driving around at night in the convertible. So far, no scratches.....

    O.K., I'm going with Serengeti Silver Titanium. Should match my car pretty well.

    I use to have a pair of Serengetti's until they were stolen by a valet. They were really good for driving in low light b/c they were not to dark.

    oakley juliet's to fit my small head.Have had them since Sept of 2000. By far, the best glasses I have ever owned. The lenses are great for low light, aka driving through shadows. Had them "rebuilt" by oakley for 70 a year ago. Oh and 4 other pairs of oakleys that never get worn.
