So what you're saying is that RB's lens technology is crap compared to other brands?

If I'm holding a RB and lets say a Maui Jim. How can I tell the difference in quality between the lens of the two? Any pointers?

Guys,

Is this what people call sixth sense....Man today evening i was thinking about having a thread for sun glasses and behold here it is (and that too started 2 years back...amazing)...

I am always amazed by sunglasses but the problem i have is that i am not comfortable wearing them. I get an irritating feeling between my eyebrows. But 1.5 year back what happened, i went for skywalk in chennai and saw this simple elegant beauty and plunged. A polaroid
Brown tinted lens with class c filter
Black frame

I somehow couldnt find similar tints in ray ban.

And what happened after that I made it a order to wear glasses whenever i go out irrespective of my irritation. And now i am comfortable with my glasses. No uncomfortable feeling.
One more thing happened during the first few days of my usage. Since i was not used to sunglasses, every time i used it i got the feeling that the weather has changed and it is going to rain and i would rush to my office to prevent myself getting wet.

1.5 years later I just love every moment with my polaroid (though i find its not possible to use it after 18.00 hrs. I would love to use it againt dust while driving in night) my next glass would surely be a polaroid.

Oops, Im sorry. The reflections on the frame sheet looked like abrasions. Also the selvet cloth for Ferrari Sunglasses were either a yellow or red micro fibre cloth. Maybe its changed now.

Congrats.

If its not too much to ask for. Can you scan the bill and post it here. Ferrari has a distributor here in India and they pay the shipping and duties. How did they mention it on your bill?

Don't have the bill with me now. The duties (about 30%) were paid by FedEx at the time of customs clearance. They collected the amount at the time of delivery.

Here's another pic:

It wasn't purchased locally but direct from the international ferrari store , it was shipped from Italy via fed-ex. There is a 30% customs or so on sunglasses which I found googling which is what he was charged I guess

This is my RayBan. Bought it for QR 675/- (Rs 8775/-)

No idea about model name. Been using for 3 years now.

No plans to change since driving is very comfortable with these on.
