I got mine 3 years ago from an optical shop in Centrepoint. Cannot remember the name of the shop but they are on 2nd/3rd floor just next to the escalator. Their main shop is at Parkway Parade.

Got good service from a guy named Ben (I think). That pair still serving me well after 3 years of daily wear, except that the rubber at the ear clip frayed a little. They say it's made from F1 tyres. My foot.

But the sunglasses/specs are very comfy and light. Like it very much. The one with the red clips will suit a woman. Pink is too girly.

Try bigger stores like capitol optical, specs hut, paris miki. If there is a selection of normal frames over there, most likely you would be able to find the sunglasses. :)

The Taq series can fit either normal prescription or sunglasses so no worries there. I use mine as prescription glasses.

But the bad things about the Tag are:
Expensive
Replacement parts expensive too eg replacing the rubber clips (the ones which hold the specs to your temples) ~ $140 per pair
If you want to sleep on the plane and need to remove them, it's hard to store them in the seat pocket. Always need to remember to bring their special spec casing

Good things:
Light
Comfortable
Does not pinch your nose bridge even after long wear
Does not slip down your nose bridge unless you are sweating profusely. I run in it. It's ok.

But besides Tag, I think there are other brands which feature almost similar designs.

i like the curve series.

f1 tyres also will wear out.moreover they are soft compound tyres, so they wear out even faster.
:bsmilie:

when i bought the tag rubber strap watch, they told me too, that it's made from f1 tyres...:dunno:
i should have asked them tyres from which car driven by who.:bsmilie:

so you mean the legs of the sunglass cant be folded?
geez...in that case, it's hard to keep it in the car, as i would imagine the box/case to be pretty big to store the glasses.rite?

The case isnt tht big, just tht it looks abit bulky. all of tag legs are flexible so no worries if you are gonna fold them hard.

It can be folded to a certain extent but it needs to be manually restrained by the case else it will flip back to original status, like in the pic. Can't be stored in the car's sunglass compartment though as the compartment is usually too small.

i like this pair

Mid to end of the legs are flexible no doubt. But there is titanium at the beginning part which can flex. And whatever metal bent too long also can break. Like the old saying "tie bang mo cheng zhen".

Anyway, replacement is $140 (can't remember per leg or per pair; and I was told die die must replace by per pair). Small money for people with $.
