    Costco Kirkland Polarized sunglasses $26.49 2 styles tortoise Wayfare/black Aviator




    They feel very sturdy. The Aviators are made in Japan and the Wayfarers are made in Italy. The Tortoise Shell Wayfarers are about the size of the Knockaround Premiums as seen in the second picture. I have a medium leaning slightly small head and they fit great.

    I got some Kirkland sunglasses last year and they are great. I have found Costco rebrands quality merchandise as Kirkland. Dare I say those sunglasses retail for over $100 if they had the other companies name on it.

    I was comparing them to my Wayfarer IIs and they are pretty close - maybe a little darker than the RBs and the RBs are a little flatter at the base of the lenses. Maybe that's what contributes to the Wayfarer IIs straighter lines than the originals. Overall, if you save $50-$75 bucks and they look good on you then they're a good deal!

    Very interesting, looking for a new pair but I don't like the shape of traditional wayfarers since the lense bows in. I recently misplaced my favorite pair, a William Rast version of the wayfarer.

    I picked up a pair of the tortoise shell Wayfarers this weekend and I must say I'm very impressed with the quality. I've only worn them a couple of times, but the frames seem very sturdy and they're nice and light without feeling cheap. I have a tall, fairly average width head and they fit me perfectly. Can't hardly beat a pair of Italian-made, polarized pair of Wayfarers for less than $30!

    I saw them in-store the other day but passed because they didn't have any unwrapped ones to try on. Kinda moronic if you ask me.
