Suggestions on Where to Buy Sunglasses with Glass Lenses

Any ideas on where I can pick up some sunnies with glass lenses in them, that don’t cost the world?

Anyone seen any about that I should check out?

All I can find is Aviator Ray Bans that cost like 200 bucks.

    I don't think the Ray-Bans make 100% Glass Lens anymore; they are either plastic or crystal (mix of glass and polycarbonate).

    I just can’t stand how polycarbonate lenses scratch so easily. I had some American Optics glass sunnies once and they were near impossible to scratch.
    Polycarbonate ones last about a week in my line of work

      Tiler by any chance? I'm the same, tile dust destroys them in no time..

    Im sure there are also cheaper styles in RayBans that are glass. Look out for sales.

    Serenghettis aren’t cheap but I love them.

      Are any of these glass lensed?

        They say Corning glass in the description with, at least, some of them. It feels like glass with the ones I have.

    Sunglass hut. Try this code SAVE50 on min $250 purchase. Closes tomorrow night. Could be targeted, but doubt it.

      Thanks!

    Okay so I thought i'd update yaz.

    Found a few more really nice brands of sunglasses that do glass lenses:

    1. Persol - found in sunglass hut.
    2. OTIS - Australian brand. A good range of trendy styles and all glass lenses. Reasonably priced too - around $200.
    3. Spotters - Another Aussie brand. All glass lenses and polarised. Mostly makes wrap around style sunnies for hardcore fishermen, but also makes a couple of more trendy frames.

    I tried on loads and ended up with a pair of Spotters for $250 and DFO Brisbane, just because they seem to fit my (big) head a little better than the OTIS ones I tried: https://spotters.com.au/product/riot/

    Really solid feel to them and very impressed with the quality. Both OTIS and Spotters look and feel a lot better quality than the Ray-Ban New Wayfarers I was checking out IMHO. 2 year warranty too.
