Favorite sunglasses?

I need new sunglasses, having left mine on a table of a restaurant in Lake Mary :-/ Anyone have recommendations? Styles or brands that you absolutely love? I prefer polarized, but I'd love to get your input. Thanks!

Oakley flak jacket. Pricey, but they wrap and are sporty! Can get them in prescription, too.

My favorites are cheap-o ones because I'm 100% guaranteed to lose them.

The ones I lost were Cosa del Reys - I almost cried! I have my eye on Maui Jim's this time. My husband it dubious since I lost the last pair. I'd had them for 3 years, though!

As you can imagine, living in the Sunshine State, sunglasses are serious business Laughing out loud

We usually go with cheap ones also. On our last trip my husband had to take his off for the picture at Chef Mickey's and left them there. Of the four of us my son was the only one who came home with a pair!

Just a question for all of you with polarized sunglasses. When I wear my polarized sunglasses in the car, I simply CAN NOT see any of my digital electronic gauges, speedometer, radio, I have to look over the glasses to see them. Does anyone else have this type of problem?

I have some wrap around shades made by Polaroid. They are polarised lenses and very comfortable, not that I get to wear them much in the UK.

I don't have any trouble seeing the digital display in my car, but struggle to see my satnav or the display on my digital camera with them. Aparently this is a common issue with polarised lenses.

I usually always go with the cheap kind, but last summer in Italy my husband got Ray ban's and I got some Marc Jacob's glasses and I noticed a difference in them. I'd recommend both brands. I'm not a fan of wearing glasses (even sunglasses) but these aviator style ones weren't too uncomfy.

I prefer $10 Wal Mart ones as I an guaranteed to loose them or break them. I just thought I scored because I got a pair of cool ones the other day for $5! So I got two pair one for $10 that are aviators that I feel are the only kind that good on me, and then the $5 pair that are the same shape as my glasses.

I have those "Transitions" lenses in my eyeglasses. They're quite good aside from the brief time span while they adjust to a change in light level. And since my eyeglasses are always on my face, I never lose my sunglasses.
