30 May 2012 - Indy 500 Tributes Dan Wheldon with White Sunglasses

What an awesome way to give tribute to the Indy 500 race car champion, Dan Wheldon. The organizers of the 2012 Indianapolis 500 speedway race on Sunday handed out mock ups of Dan's iconic white sunglasses to celebrate his life and passion on the speedway.

Wheldon, the defending race winner and a two-time champ, was killed in the October finale last season, and the entire day was in honor of D-dub, the fallen champ.

Luckily for Dan three of his best friends were nutting it out for the championship and the Scottsman, Dario Franchitti, came out on top taking the title and etching his name next to his buddy Dan's on the trophy.

Just not sure we can replace the sunglass lenses in these tribute shades though!

29 May 2012 - Brad Pitt Wears $1,250 Sunglasses to Cannes Film Festival!

It's that time of year again when all the stars strut their stuff at the annual Cannes Film Festival held on the French Riviera, arguably one of the world's biggest cinema showcases. Although the US Films didn't do so well this year Brad Pitt certainly made a splash turning up on the red carpet in his mega expensive $1250 Sama Sunglasses. Certainly a great accessory for his black tux that gave off some great reflections in the mirrored sunglass lenses.

Michael Haneke's "Love" (Amour) won the coveted Palme d'Or for best picture, with New Zealand-born Andrew Dominik's "Killing Them Softly", starring Brad Pitt as a mob enforcer in a recession-hit U.S. city, was popular.

Brad proves that the Ray-Ban Aviator style is still hot for this summer and are true legends when it comes to longevity because the last time he was seen sporting them was back in the early 2000's for his movie Moneyball. The lavish aviator-style sunglasses, are made from 100 percent pure titanium and highly mirrored lenses that are vapor coated in pure 18k rose gold. The style, called "Black Onyx," is also available in yellow gold, platinum and kohl.

 

 


23 May 2012 - Lance Armstrong Stirs a Crowd at the Panama Triathon with his Oakley Sunglasses

Lance Armstrong may be not be in the Y gen category of athletes but he's still proven that age is no barrier to winning and can be a lethal weapon. His mental maturity and his experience proved too hard to beat at the recent Panama 70.3 Triathon. Lance caused quite a stir when he arrived for a pro meeting pictured below. Naturally the age group athletes were swooning the tent to get a shot or glimpse of the Tour de France cycling champion, and who can blame them!

Lance is an Oakley fan on and off the race track looking casually cool in his Oakley Polarized Titanium Crosswires.

 

The new Oakley Polarized Titanium Crosswire, with the classic appeal of the Ray-Ban Aviator look combined with the awesome Oakley technology these look like a killer pair of new release sunglasses by Oakley for both on and off the sports field. We sure hope to provide our customers with some great aftermarket replacement lenses to fit into these Oakleys in the near future.

 


15 May 2012 - Improve Your Fishing Trip by Wearing Polarized Sunglasses

It©s spring once again and it's fishing season. The sun is rising beautifully by this time, you can marvel at its beauty without having to profusely sweat because of the heat and humidity of summer.

Fish populations are active during spring. But if you©re going fishing, it©s likely that light will be reflected off the water©s surface that can be annoying. That's why specialist polarized sunglasses are essential. Polarised lenses can filter out the light coming from all angels, especially off the waters surface and boats etc. For the fishermen who love their sport it©s frustrating when they can©t see the water or the big fish lurking under the water. Being able to see clearly, even in harsh lighting conditions, means that you©re able to see if you have a fish on your line and wearing polarised sunglass lenses will help even the amateur fisherman catch a big one.

Fishing is all about relaxing but if excess light causes migraines it©s not fun. What you need is a good pair of polarized sunglasses on hand to protect your eyes to be sure you©ll be relaxed your whole fishing trip.

Some popular models of sports fishing glasses are Mako Sleek that fits tightly around the head with full eye coverage to ensure they don©t slip off when leaning over the boat reeling in the big one. Their are Old Harbour Outfitters that take their fishing shades seriously and FishGlitz that are popular for fishing.

So wherever you go this spring to find that perfect fishing hole, or out on the ocean for deep sea fishing don't forget to take care of your eyes by wearing polarized lenses. If you already have a favorite pair of fishing sunglasses that you wear but you don©t have a clean set of lenses, we stock a new line of premium polarized lenses that our customers rave about, check out our facebook page to see what our customers are saying about them.

8 May 2012 - Shopping for Ray-Ban Wayfarer Sunglasses Virtually Made Easier

The sweet smell of summer is in the air and it's time to update your sunglasses with the latest style or with brand new lenses, giving them the shine of a brand new pair. But it can be tiresome visiting shop after shop trying on the latest styles.

Not all sunglasses are created equal and depending on the shape of your face, some designs just don’t seem to fit. But now you can shop virtually to find the perfect style or the latest trends like the Ray-Ban Wayfarer that are huge for this summer season and worn by many celebrities like Madonna.

Now shopping for sunglasses has never been easier. Take for example Bloomingdale’s in New York City. Large screens grace their front windows allowing the busy New Yorker to virtually try on sunglasses without even stepping foot in the store. This is done using LCD screens that identify where your eyes are when you look into the screen. Now you can try on the latest styles like Ray-Ban Wayfarer in some funky colors such as violet and cyclamen. You can even turn your head side to side to see from diferent angles how the sunglasses looks on your face.

Virtual shopping doesn’t end on the sidewalk. Many sunglasse online stores now offer virtual viewing by using a picture of yourself or your webcam. They can align digitized versions of their sunglasses to your face so you can check out the latest looks from the comfort of your own home or into the wee hours of the morning when some of us are on shopping sprees! Now you can get the latest summer looks, or your Ray Ban sunglasses online without ever having to leave your house.

Don't forget once you've invested in your designer sunglasses that we stock a large range of replacement lenses in our online store that fit Ray Ban sunglasses so if if you happen to damage or scratch the lenses of your favorite pair be sure to get new lenses to have them looking brand new again.
