You can check it at shopper's stop at Garuda Mall. They have an exclusive counter for Polaroid with warranty. Me and wife have one each. Expect a decent one above Rs.2500/-.

Default Sunglasses you own and wear thread.

HI All,
Had tried searching for sunglasses but have not found any dedicated thread to them.
I am sure almost everyone who drives a car here will be wearing sunglasses(exceptions might be people wearing spectacles). I have seen many people quiet passionate and fond of sunglasses(am one of those).

Share the ones you own and wear by posting the pics, price, where you bought from etc, so others can also take a cue.

Here is mine-

Colour code : 531V
Frame colour : Black
Lense colour : Black
UV filter cathegory : 3

Adult standard size (in milimiters)
- Lenses diameter : 99
- Harm lengh : 120
- Bridge distance : -
- Frame total width : 144
- Height of the glass : 54

Price- Rs. 8000.00

You get decent fast track ones in 1500 - other brands may be lesser.

Pseud brands 2500-3000+ as said by shaju

You will find category written on most sunglasses.
The value ranges from 1 to 5.
1 is the lightest and 5 the darkest.
3 is the most popular setting. But if you want to wear them for night driving (esp Polarized) then get Cat 2.

I have three of them currently : Carrera George, Polariod 8811 and the ubiquitous Rayban Aviator.

Even since I discovered polarized lenses; i just cant drive without my Polaroid, they are very effective in reducing glare and great for night driving too!

Got three pairs, Rayban Aviator which i hardly use now, Oakley FMJ (old one, rarely used), and now a Fasttrack, often used.

From the posts above i assume that everyone has got a RB Aviator in their sunglasses arsenal
