well..its 3:30 in good ol baltimore maryland, i just got home from a party and i cant sleep. so i decided to pose this question to the pit. how does the pit feel about the ray-ban sunglasses trend. personally, i used to hate them but now i like em.
#2
Trend? In what way is there a sudden Ray-Ban trend? Did they ever go away?
#3
maybe its a maryland thing..but it seems as though the whole flanel and rayban skater thing has caught on...
#4
Funny, I just bought some today, but the $10 ones. They are pretty good with the real (fake) BL lenses. Lots of them in this country.

It's the middle of winter anyway. Unless you're in Australia or something anyone wearing sunglasses is a dick.

contrary to popular belief, sun still exists in the winter...

If you're referring to the Wayfarers, then it depends on who's wearing it. Usually it's the hipster kids with them on, and while I think it looks alright, I think I don't like it mostly because the hipster kids are wearing them. I'm fine with Audrey Hepburn wearing them though.

I don't know what ray-bans are but if they are those cheap glasses that some girls wear to cover up 3/4 of their face and look like they have bug eyes then I dislike them.
#12
I wear 'em. (Presuming it's these you're referring to)

I don't see it as a sudden trend. But I prefer the design over other glasses.
#13
The Blues Brothers wear them, ergo they're bitchin'!

Actually, over here the sun is so low in the middle of the day, it makes driving without shades impossible if you're facing the sun. It's even brighter when there's snow.

I hate those shades with the white frames every tool is wearing.


Dunno about white frames, but lots of people here are wearing these:

I have a pair of polarized Ray bans and I think they're overrated quite frankly.

Their lens do not even begin to compare to brands like Maui Jim and Costa Del Mar which are in the same price range. That's all I really care about along with conservative design.

If you're talking about the wayfarer style sunglasses, I think they're horrible.

Wayfarers are cool, despite the hoards of people who have picked them up in my area recently. It shouldn't matter, but to me it does. 90% of the people I know that wear Aviators are tools, so I judge them.

Ts, do you mean to be talking about a specific style of Raybans? Because it's like asking what we think of Sony....or Disney Movies. Ray bans have pretty much always been popular, so I just assumed you were talking about wayfarers, which have gone through that insane spike in popularity that comes up every 10 years or so.


My mind is going. I can feel it.

i got a pair in mexico for 10$. they obviously weren't real. they bent the day i got them.


i thinks its stupid and pointless to pay that much for sunglasses
#25
dude, my little brother virtually owns the internet industry of ray bans sunglasses, little tycoon he is, all the while i have just about no money whatsoever. i am considering killing him and taking his identity. sound like a fair enough plan?

One time we were at this party and i picked up a pair of aviators and put `em on, just mucking round, and people said they looked good, so I just walked of with `em.

I still wear them, a lot lol.
