    Default Sunglasses

    Hi,

    I have been accompanying my friend to hunt for a suitable sunglass. We have been to Spectacle Hut, Optical 88, Capitol Optical and Jolly Care but still cannot find anything suitable. Anyone has any good recommendation that has a large collection of sunglasses? (Not looking for Oakley)

    Queensway is good. Easily 10-15% cheaper than city retailers.

    He has tried a couple of brands but I guess he wants something to suit his face more than the brand itself.

    Same with me... That's why I went RP. Most comfy for my face, and the shape suits my face shape too.

    Does Rudy Project do lenses with degrees in them, i.e. prescription lenses? Edit: Sorry if I seem to be hijacking the thread.

    Went to YES! Eyewear at Suntec this evening and it's closed for renovation.

    Saw the Rudy Project ones and their lenses are interchangable.

    Rudy Project are good. I have one myself, and I love their excellent optics. Serve me well when I was outstation under the blazing hot sun of the Middle East.

    Oh, thanks for the info. Means I can just order a sunglass frame, specify that i want Rx lenses with given degrees, and they'll put together just like that?

    Try Sunglass Hut (it's not related to spectacle hut)
    There's outlets in Vivocity and Plaza Singapura, as well as millenia walk and the flyer mall. would recommend the first two cus the shops selection slightly more i think.
    u can also go to the T3 public area, no GST for the sunglasses somemore hehehe

    for us asian faces, it's better to wear sunglasses that have lenses are less curved. the straighter the better. but it varies for different individuals, depending on the nose bridge and cheek bones.

    and most brands have RX sunglasses.. Rayban is your safest bet.. oakleys.. etc. even Ralph Lauren Polo has it too =)

    hope this helps!

    btw if you want prescribed lenses, there's extra charges... also consider this: if the short-sighted degree changes = must change sunglasses. a bit waste money. so i'd recommend contact lenses + sunglasses instead.
