^^This is so true! Also kind of a bummer since I have so many nice glasses that are not polarized. sigh. I just got my black polarized and tortoise polarized pairs today. Love them! The tortoise is very dark - which I like and the coverage is great since the frames are large. Bring on the sun!

SUCH a hipster trend here in nyc...

especially the ones with the different coloured arms...
...

was at a rooftop party and every other person had them on...
cuh-razy man...



**actually surprised there isn't much of the coloured arm stuff posted here...
that seems to be the bigger/newer trend around here...

the subway ones are cool..

As for polarization, yes it costs more - but it's TOTALLY worth it. Polarization can be in grey, grey-green, or brown lens - but in addition to cutting out UVA and UBA rays, it eliminates glare. For example when you're driving on a sunny day and the cars coming towards you all have bright reflected windshields facing you - well polarization gets rid of that so you can see right in the car. It's like x-ray glasses. haha. It's great for snow as well and also when you're at the beach or on the water: it takes the glare off the water so you can see beneath. Once you have polarized you won't want to be without it.

HTH
Thank you for your explanation. I'm loonking for the cats 1000, the skinny wayfarer. Now I'm going to hesitate between polarized lenses and usual ones.

^^Go for polarization - the clarity and the removal of glare is so worth it.

I am in Italy now, and wayfarers are extremely popular here. I think I've seen the classic 2140 style in every size and color. I love that everyone has bought out their bright wayfarer sunglasses for summer too, looks really fresh. I still love the classic black and tortoise, especially in the large size, which men and women seem to be rocking here. Just perfect for everyday.

I wish I'd read this thread before I picked mine, but I think I got a great deal on a pair of New Wayfarers from Sunglasses Hut.

I got this style

they were only $139 Canadian (like $125 US) and I bargained for 15% off because there was a slight scratch on the inside of the frame. I wish they were the bigger classic style but the price was right and at least they're less common.

Has anyone bought Ray-Bans from auctioneers10 on ebay or Sunglass Express on amazon? There's a pair I desperately want but I can't find them where I live and very few places ship to Canada. Both sellers look pretty legitimate but I'm always so paranoid about that stuff so I figured I'd see if anyone had experience with them... Thanks!

I dislike the colored ones.
But in general, I think wayfarers are classic. Yet I hope the current trend (****ing celebrities ruin everything!!) goes away soon so I don't have to feel like a tool wearing mine.
