View Full Version : Sunglasses

Let's discuss sunglasses. What are your reasons for wearing/not wearing sunglasses? What kind of sunglasses do you prefer? Why do the cooler ones cost so damn much?

I used to wear sunglasses because I'd get dry eyes staying outside too long. Now I wear them because I'm so used to wearing them I get blinded by the light otherwise. That, and I like people not being able to look into my eyes. I like the reflective wireframe style the most, or basically the style in this picture (http://www.eyesonff.com/members/album/Neel/N_01), but they don't cover the sides of my eyes and sometimes I'd like more protection than that. My price range has traditionally been very low (think Target), but I would like a nice new pair soon, but I am unwilling to pay those higher Sunglass Hut prices.

I haven't worn sunglasses in years. I kind of want to get some new ones to wear, but I have to wear regular glasses when I drive places, making sunglasses kind of pointless.

I have prescription sunglasses. Don't leave home without 'em!

I don't wear them, I don't really need them, and I don't like how they look on me.

I think I was the only lifeguard at the pool I worked at who didn't wear them.

I only wear sunglasses when I want to secretly watch people. Kind of like a spy or an assassin. You know. If I'm walking down the street and I want to watch someone walking ahead of me, I don't want to be seen. I want them to think that I'm looking across the street and not at them. Or watch people through their windows. That's always fun. But I don't usually wear sunglasses for anything other than spying. If I did, they would be black to shade my eyes. But when I wear sunglasses, I must wear a hat and a long trench coat.

I use them to conceal my eyes and therefore my emotions. And to avoid getting blinded, of course.

08-23-2005, 09:27 AM
Oh yeah, I forgot that they were used for that >.<

I occasionally wear sun glasses, sometimes just because it goes with my outfit (not if its pouring down with rain or something, ofcourse).
I wear those fairly big sunglasses that have a goldy/brown tint.
I do actually have a picture, but I'm not on my home computer as I am in Newcastle.

I'll attatch it when I come home on thursday, if this thread is still alive. :)

Only when I'm trying to look cool or like a fool!

08-23-2005, 10:19 AM
i have normal glasses ^_^

I always wear sunglasses outside whenever it's a really sunny day. My eyes can get quite dry due to the sun. And even when I'm driving, I need to wear my sunnies.

I hate sunglasses, I don't like it when people cover their eyes, it makes me distrust them.

The only sunglasses that look good on me are the ones Cyclops wears from X-Men.
I still don't wear them though. I just feel kinda funny, like people are looking at me thinking "ugh, he thinks he is SO teh badass".

I don't use sunglasses, since I really don't like them. ;x

I just wear regular glasses.

I started wearing huge avaitor sunglasses in the summer because for some odd reason the stopped my eyes from puffing up from hayfever. And now they are cool so I just were them all the time to look freaking awesome because I do.
I lost my mirrored avaitors though, I need to find them, they are the bestest!

I look really awful in sunglasses for some reason. It may be because I'm too pale for them. :p

I love sunglasses! I used to collect them when I was little, and many a prank have been played at school by people wearing them :D
My favourite pairs are my FCUK ones, v. stylish :tongue: and these awful Ray-Ban ones which look hysterical :p

I usually only wear them when I'm driving because the sun in your eyes can be quite blinding. I'd wear them more often, but to do so I would have to get prescription sunglasses or contacts, so I'm thinking on that.

08-23-2005, 04:48 PM
They hurt my eyes for some reason, and they annoy me. I do suit them though

I'd have to buy Subscription sunglasses.

I had a cool pair of sunglasses to wear when I went to Spain, but I couldn't wear them cause I had to wear my glasses... ;_;

08-23-2005, 05:15 PM
I used to wear them a lot, but I don't anymore. Mostly because I kept on breaking them, so I just gave up out of laziness to buy new pairs.

08-23-2005, 05:34 PM
I never wear sunglasses. They just don't fit in my personality.

08-23-2005, 05:38 PM
My sunglasses reveal the outer mists that surround our world, but yet go unnoticed.

In other words, flatulents.

I hate sunglasses, I hate glasses...I like my eyes to be FREE! And I even hate swimming goggles. They press on my nose in a tender spot, and then I feel ticklish.

08-23-2005, 06:40 PM
I had some sunglasses but I lost them.

08-23-2005, 07:03 PM
I think I'd look good in sunglasses, but I can never pick the right pair, and if I did I'd only lose/break them anyway.

08-23-2005, 07:44 PM
I love my sunglasses! I wear whenever i go out.

08-23-2005, 07:45 PM
Sunglasses get in the way of the headphones I always wear.

It just doesn't work.

08-23-2005, 08:57 PM
That's one of the reasons I plug in with earbud headphones now. :p

08-23-2005, 10:02 PM
I find them too uncomfortable, and they refuse to stay in my ears, so I have to use sports-band style all the time.

I wore my sunglasses pretty much constantly in Louisiana.

Now I'm in school and we can't wear them in school, so I don't wear them so much except driving.

I wear sunglasses because my eyes are very sensitive to sunlight. Also because they look cool. Also because I like people not knowing that I'm looking at them. I have a little sunglass piece that snaps on to my glasses and it is awesome.

08-24-2005, 02:01 AM
No, I've never worn sunglasses. I never look good in them, for one, and the sun is still, relatively, just as bright. They give me a headache, too.
