      These sunglasses are sturdy and come in a very nice case with a cleaning cloth. However, I found the shape to be very ordinary and not interesting on me at all, and not worth keeping.

          I have a difficult time finding comfortable sunglasses and these are great. They fit well and don't slide around. Very cute, too. What's not to love?

              Retro cool enough that my teenage daughter wants a pair too.

                I got the brown pair. They are a beautiful spotted tortoiseshell pattern. The shape is comfortable to wear. The lenses are not excessively dark, but rather comfort the eyes on bright days. The frames are thick and sturdy without being clunky. The storage case was a nice bonus.

                            THese are really cute and have good coverage. Also the arms are well placed so that they don't block side view.
                            on the Con side, the color of the lenses is a bit strange...kind of orangish. And it seems to slightly affect vision.
                            At any rate, I'll keep them....they do the job. I won't however, get rid of my old shades, that are darker (if smaller)

                                I love the look of these glasses, but they are a bit heavy and tend to slide off when I bend forward. I do have a slightly narrow head, so for someone with an average or wide head they might be fine.
