    If the Aviators are like the clubmasters from Jcrew Factory in quality, I would highly suggest investing the $50 or $60 (depending on price on Amazon) for American Optics Aviators. The Jcrew Factory clubmaster sunglasses are extremely flimsy and cheap feeling. I wouldn’t drop $ for Ray Bans, but the AO Aviators are amazing for the price point imho.

      will look into it.

      The only thing i would add here is that the AO aviators are not for everyone. For guys with larger sized heads or faces they might be a bit snug, to way to small. The $20 option might give you a reference point while saving some dough. I have a somewhat smaller head and the AO’s actually look pretty small on me.

        Ralph Engineering is another option but higher price point.

        • gamnoparts

          Randolph Engineering?

    I’d spend a little extra and get the AO pilots. I got them for under $50 on Amazon. They are going to be sturdier and the lenses are actually glass. And while Cremo isn’t bad, I like my Proraso which I get on Amazon for around $10.
