Favorite Casual Shades

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

After looking for a good casual pair of sunglasses to use for everyday use, I finally found the perfect pair. I've always used Oakleys and even ventured to other brands to try to see if I could find something a bit different. After looking at a few pairs, I realized the Holbrook's were definitely the way to go. The design is simple, but well made. They sit on my face just right and grip well even without the use of any O-mater rubber on the nose piece or ears. The Red Iridium lenses are some of my favorite since they not only do well in bright light conditions, but offer enough light transmission that seeing in low light conditions is a sinch as well. Red Iridium would not be my first choice for super bright sunny days, but certainly can get the job done. The only gripe I have with these sunglasses is that the matte black frame can show smudges or oil from your fingers, but is not a deal breaker by any means.
