    Rx sunwear smarties...

    What do you do for men's Rx sunwear?

    Anyone using ophthalmic frames?
    Anyone like the Rx programs?
    Anyone have a good line of plano sun that they like to Rx?

    Thank you.

    Maui Jim is the best line for mens sunglasses.

    Any Quality made frame can be Rx sunwear. It doesn't have to have sun demo's in it to be a good sunglass.

    We do a ton of . . . .

    Rx Oakleys, Maui Jims & Wiley X frames. I prefer the Climate Control Series from Wiley the best since I ride.

    Good luck to you!

    :cheers:
    Days where my gratitude exceed my expectations are very good days!

    At our office we have your basic men therefore we have your basic men's sunwear. They like a little wrap but not too much. They drive Harleys so they like Transitions. They are engineers so they like clean traditional lines, not too funky and only brown, gunmetal or black. We like Safilo's Fossil and we aren't big Safilo fans but these move like crazy. One or two of them apparently look just like Oakley. The price is good and they Rx easily. Liberty's Biker frame and it's mates are also good steady sellers.
