Hi, I’m a gardener in southern Spain, loads of sunlight in summer, I’ve green eyes and must wear sunglasses, at present I’m on ray ban wayfarers, I’ve no problem but was wondering if there’s any one out there that spends 8 hours a day in the sun working and can recommend another model?

Hi.... You can try Maui Jim Breakwalls. They're nylon frames with plastic lenses. Extremely light with one of the best optics ever. I'd suggest going for the brown tints as they provide amazing contrast. The only downside to these will be the price. But, once you wear them.... They're worth every penny you spend. (I'd know cos I have one myself)

I have hundreds of pairs of sunglasses from all different designers. lately I have been trying to avoid the big brands and have been focusing more on the underground scene. Here are some companies that I think are doing new things in 2018.
Dita (japan)
Parasite (France) NRODA (NYC) mykita (germany) MATSUDA (Japan)
I would love to see more non-luxottica brands on MD but in terms of EDC I always keep a set of Dior Homme (fancy) or raybans (casual) frames on hand. Most of which I’ve gotten for amazing prices here on MD

Maui Jim’s or gtfo. I’m so tired of seeing this cheap garbage. I want highest quality optics with glass lenses from them; all other sunglasses are fashion accessories and a waste of time/money.

They're getting hard to find, but glass lenses are far more durable than plastic (which is cheaper to manufacture).
Polarized lenses are good for water-sports use; the orientation of the polarization is typically set to reduce glare bouncing off of an horizontal surface.
Polarized lenses can be bad for driving - stress induced birefringence in windshield glass can affect drivers' vision.
Rayban G15's are my preferred lenses, unpolarized. They're colour neutral.

You are correct in my book, glass is better. I need RX lenses and I’m really gonna try and go glass. For me Massdrop offers decent choices that can be RX ed and I’ve bought severaL. Now can I get glass in the frames I want. I do wish Massdrop would sell more RX able sunglasses like Fendi, etc.
