Do you go through several cheap pairs of sunglasses a year or keep and take care of one nice pair.

I don't know how I do it but I lose sunglasses no matter how hard I try not to. I now buy four or five cheap ones every spring and hope they get me through fall. :-/

One relatively cheap pair.

I've actually had one free pair all year. It has an ad on the sides but I don't care.

in Colorado & as high elevation as I'm at, it's just not smart to go without.

I *do* tend to lose stuff like this. I like really nice pens but I buy cheap ones instead, for that reason. So we'll see if my 1-year luck with the sunglasses holds.

One nice pair... I've had this pair since 2011!

It's an ad for Kill Cliff recovery drinks. I got it at the CrossFit Games regionals in Salt Lake City.

Most people I know that keep a cheap pair can't keep track of them for very long. Kudos to you

I used to buy only custom Oakleys and Raybans. $250+. Now, as long as they're polarized and look good on my head, I'm cool with them. Less that $25 for a good pair of polarized Calcutta sunglasses.

that had something weird like a 3-for-the-price-of-2 sale. They're *always* losing sunglasses, so they each bought a pair, & I discovered the over-the-glasses kind, & that they didn't look too ridiculous. So for ~$13 I got a pair. As sunny as it is

I've had my raybans for sheesh 4 years now. I can't barely walk from my house to the street without them on now.

One cheap. Maybe two. The disposable drop-in kind that work with regular glasses. I buy them ten at a time, but one usually lasts almost the whole year.

I use Oakleys for work and Ray Bans for style

Nope, I'm not sure how they came up with the name, although they apparently have bars now too. I just saw it on their website. www.killcliff.com

Maybe they're literally trying to kill the clif brand

Well done! I've got a pair of raybans that are still with me from 2010. They don't sit quite right on my face anymore but I still love them

Ray Ban Wayfarers. If I loose them, I'm out $200.00..

I guess it is possible, but as they started in the drink market and spell it with two f's I don't think it's likely.

They gotta throw you off the scent. One f would be too obvious. Conspiracy!

Well, this is just the first year with them, so we'll see... I went without sunglasses for many years. I wear glasses but am too cheap to pay for prescription sunglasses, & I hate the clip-on types. But I was in a store with my daughter & son-in-law

I'm with Susan on this, I keep one cheap pair, too. With small kids, there's no point in me indulging. I seem to keep track of my Target glasses pretty easily, though.
