I have a pair of Prada sunglasses which I wore for a long time but now I've gone back to the basics, Rayban wayfarers all black! Can't imagine going back to the previously popular sheild type frames, the wayfarers although retro looking feel a lot more modern now.

Guys I want to buy a new pair. Does anyone know if Bvlgari is available here? I checked out some Raybans and Oakleys. The Oakleys are too sporty to wear all the time so I might end up buying the Rayban polarized.

Ya, they also start from 14K which was not in my budget. I ended up buying the Rayban polarized.

the wayfarers are my absolute favorite sunglasses followed by the Rayban Balorama.
both IMO are timeless classics not to mention the aviators also.

I normally do not wear sunglasses as I wear specs (unfortunately!) But whenever I have contacts on, I wear a pair of Fastrac glasses - I need something snug fitting as dust is the enemy when wearing lenses.
I never spend a lot on glasses as I am prone to breaking stuff like this.
