    You beat me to it. Made in the UK and the price is no different to RayBan or similar makes. Quality is great although the tint of the lenses takes a little getting used to.



    They make spectacle frames too of which I have two pairs. I'm a happy customer.

    I'm still wearing my 1998 Oakley A wires regularly. Great sunglasses but as I've never bought any since wouldn't know if the quality is inferior now. Also have some 1995 Arnette Dogs in perfect condition and I'm glad to see Randolf Engineering aren't on the "designer" list. Hopefully they make them in house for the cost.

    My no 1 sunglasses at the moment are Maui's bought from SC but am after some Persol wayfarers.

    How are the Persol range holding up at the moment?

    Randolph aviators for me... No complaints after 5 years of use.

    I'd love a replacement set of Romeo's but the price has gone crazy, lost them when we moved houses three times in a year, had the orange/red lenses and having a larger head these fitted perfectly.

    Currently running a few pairs of Crosshairs but the quality is no longer there.

    I've a hankering for some Maui Castles which I've been considering for a year or so, but want to try on.

    Not quite. I have MJ ka’anapali Which are titanium frameless.
    I’ve had to replace a lense because of cracks and the bridge which just broke in half.

    I do still love them but they haven’t been cheap to own.

    Which model do you have?
    Maybe I should look at something not so delicate next time.

    I've been quoted £49 to replace the bridge (plus whatever it costs to post them to the repair centre).
    Seems a lot, so probably looking at getting something else - the RE Aviators appeal.
