Post and talk about sunglasses you own or would like to get or just talk about your favourite ones..
Everything and anything about sunglasses..

Dangers of fake sunglasses:
Most people look at the counterfeiting industry as a dishonest business, but they don't recognize the dangers that many fakes pose. But counterfeits are dangerous. The lenses may not be shatterproof, which could endanger your eyesight in an accident. The lenses on counterfeit may be distorted, which can cause headaches and visual disturbances. Fakes may not have the level of UV protection that they claim to have - or they may have no protection at all.

Counterfeit sunglasses cost a fraction of the price of genuine ones, but may not have been made or tested to the same standards, which is why they may not provide any protection at all against ultra-violet rays. That leaves the wearer at risk of eye damage. It doesn’t matter how dark the lenses are. In fact, darker glasses cause your pupils to widen to let in more light. If your sunglasses offer no protection, this will allow more UVA and UVB light to enter your eyes compared to if you were not wearing sunglasses at all.

if u really dont care about quality then u can go for like esprit/topman/zara.. if u really want to invest in a good pair of sunglasses which is not too expensive, i highly recommend rayban.. u can get them around the 300+ range..

this is one of the rayban's i own

not really Rm500.. start from Rm400.. you can find it cheap at pertama complex. the shop is next to watches shop at the first floor. front of escalator.. i think the watches shop and the optical shop from the same owner.

i personally wouldnt get brands like esprit/topman/zara sunglasses.. they may make good shirts, but they are not serious sunglasses producers.. most of their designs are copied from proper sunglasses brands and they do not feel solid.. im actually not sure about esprit but i checked out some topman and zara sunglesses bfore and you can tell their construction of the sunglasses are poor and it feels cheap..

hmm i heard pasar malam 1 (or ciplak 1) although got shade and will dim the lights, but it doesnt block UVA/UVB rays which is main cause for cataract.. it actually enhance ur chance of getting them.. reason being = ur iris will open wider thinking that it's in a dim environment, to allow more light to go in, at the same time, allowing more UVA/UVB ray in as well...

correct me if i'm wrong?

well the name clearly indicates its purpose - sun glasses, which is basically to block direct sunlight to your eyes for UV protection and better view.. and well of course it is also an accessory to amp up your style =)

currently using Adidas Evil Eye Pro with prescription inserts which is a dedicated hardcore cycling glasses which i bought for pretty obvious reasons lol...

» Click to show Spoiler - click again to hide... «


used it for around 1 year and looks more like this now doh.gif

» Click to show Spoiler - click again to hide... «


the reflective coating had peeled off considerably...

changing the lens would cost more or less rm200 according to the shop -.-"

anywhere u know that sells cheap original lenses?

btw, i don't see much ppl here using sports-specific glasses here?

i think the purpose of wearing sunglasses is to be used during mid day, especially when driving.....

i would agree with sevenwatch's opinion of the shop in pertama complex, ive been there myself, the salesman is very nice, always asking customers to try, "kalo tak try tak tau, plus no charge", haha, damn funny, n if it doesnt suit you, there are thousands of others to be tried...

but i have a question too, what bout our face shape, is there any advice bout the shape of our face n the shape of the shades itself???imho, not all shades shape suits our face shape..

currently using Adidas Evil Eye Pro with prescription inserts which is a dedicated hardcore cycling glasses which i bought for pretty obvious reasons lol...

the reflective coating had peeled off considerably...

changing the lens would cost more or less rm200 according to the shop -.-"

anywhere u know that sells cheap original lenses?

btw, i don't see much ppl here using sports-specific glasses here?
*
well although brands like adidas and nike do create sunglasses which are adequate in providing UV protection, they are also not quality brand sunglasses makers.. as u can see from the pictures nightstalker has provided.. these brands are the best in sportswear no doubt, but they branch out their brand into eyewear simply to attract their customers to buy their sunglasses.. they are not at all serious sunglasses producers.. why dont u go for oakleys? =)

tag heuer makes good sunglasses, but they are in no way formal, they are very very sporty.. and their price is about RM600 and up..

yeah those brands are ok, but as u can see from the earlier post by nightstalker on his adidas, they are not gonna last long, probably 2-3 years?
if u really want something that will last and give full protection to your eyes without you putting a hole in your pocket, go for rayban.. it will cost you about RM400 for an aviator or wayfarer - those are the iconic rayban sunglasses.. trust me they will last..

and yes not all shades are polarized, polarized will usually cost about an extra RM200.. in short polarized is where the lenses reduce the glare therefore you have a more "natural" view.. go to http://www.allaboutvision.com/sunglasses/polarized.htm if u wanna know more..

oakleys are overkill for me...

i'm short sighted, so with the Adidas all i have to do is get the prescription inserts, but if i get Oakleys, i'd have to custom make the lens just for it...

the Adi is good in terms of sturdiness and design, but only thing is that the lens aren't really that resistant to scratches...

maybe its just that i'm a pretty rough user hmm.gif

Seriously? I can definitely offer you less than that for an Original Pair of Ducati Monster Dog! Unfortunately, you've gotten it so nvm.. in the future you can always look for me for all kinds of shades...

Of course there's a difference bro.. IT's OAKLEY!! The lens quality is superb, there's HDO technology (high definition optics) which makes vision exact and wont get your eyes tired, there's Impact resistance, there's hydrophobic technology, and a whole load of others. That's the difference with getting a proper pair of sunglasses compared to PASAR MALAMS!!! tongue.gif

Yup, I sell anything that Oakley Malaysia brings in.. cause I get it directly from them. So as long as they bring it in (they bring almost everything in, with exceptions!), I will be able to get it for you as well.

I've got a way to deal with them directly, hence my prices are better but still with original warranty and all! smile.gif

Dude now that's da reallll shiiitt !

Haha sorry for the exaggeration... anyway I will need a pair too.

I'm particularly interested in aviators, was kinda hooked onto an Armani Xchange one but I guess it was too big and abit pricey too. And then I tried a Club Monaco one but the lens was too small I looked like a blind rat instead.

My friend recommended me the Oakley Crosshair, but I doubt it's still in stores now.

So besides the Dita ( I'm sure its damn expensive ) any1 wanna recommend any ?

I've got a way to deal with them directly, hence my prices are better but still with original warranty and all! smile.gif

So whts your price for the large soft vault?...if price is good will definitely get from you? icon_rolleyes.gif

there are actually tons of aviator-like shapes that i can recommend.. you gotta narrow down what you really want..
if you're looking for the square-type aviator similar like those Dita's.. then here's another..

Bro..

check with my_oaks (fellow forumer; sells oakley in this forum) for oakleys in the future..
he gives really really good prices tongue.gif
check him out

Cool, is he selling original ones? Ok, let me rephrase that. Does he offer warranty from Oakley Malaysia?

Dude now that's da reallll shiiitt !

Haha sorry for the exaggeration... anyway I will need a pair too.

I'm particularly interested in aviators, was kinda hooked onto an Armani Xchange one but I guess it was too big and abit pricey too. And then I tried a Club Monaco one but the lens was too small I looked like a blind rat instead.

My friend recommended me the Oakley Crosshair, but I doubt it's still in stores now.

So besides the Dita ( I'm sure its damn expensive ) any1 wanna recommend any ?

Oakley Crosshair is still available, just that their not produced anymore. Check out Oakley Inmate, Felon, and Warden! That's for Oakleys.. then there's Emporio Armani's 9368s. Actually, most brands have their own aviator ranges.. it's only up to your budget.. what's your budget?

not really, aviators actually fit most faces, its just whether you like the look or not..


Added on January 9, 2009, 12:18 amhere, i found this page for guys who wanna read about different type frames which is most suitable for different type faces.. i personally choose to ignore these information, i'd rather go to the optical store and wear them for myself to make the judgement smile.gif

Which brand are you referring to when you talk about the different sizes you enquired about?

Basically, the official importers of these brands import 1 standard size, which should be M to fit the smaller Asian sizes. So what you hear from the shops is absolutely right. Of course, when people start offering you different sizes, you'll then be aware that it might not be original or from the official importers of that brand! smile.gif

Absolutely right, that's because the official importers of Ray-ban only bring that size in!

So remember, when you start hearing of different sizes being offered, be very careful.. very very careful! tongue.gif

i wud conclude he could be offering something way better then the "warranty frm Oakley M'Sia"

o ya..if its nt to much..
would you care too shed some light on what the warranty covers? thanks notworthy.gif
buyers then may be made aware of the great benefits of the warranty..
it will also allow buyers to have a better understanding of what they are paying for nod.gif

and another thing, if an order is made directly frm the Okaley website, is there warranty?

hmmm im sorry to hear lord.. well as a last resort for sun protection, you could go for those 2-in-1 sunglasses, where it is actually a spectacle with an added sunglasses lens which you can flip up.. not at all trendy, but to block out some sunlight..

How much do Rayban Aviators generally cost? Around 400 right? Not easy to find one in small towns. And i'm not going to kl anytime soon =/

Looks like i'll have to wait, or order online.

He's been here for awhile, and have lots of sales.. so it's good smile.gif The prices are cheaper, so that's why people neglect the warranty part. But if you think long term, or even just think, there's huge benefits of getting a pair with warranty.

There's a whole long list of benefits getting a pair with warranty, starting with the very fact that your Oakley would be 100% original, undoubtedly. Next, you'll be able to get parts replaced when it's broken or spoilt, and you can keep doing this for a long long long time. The new policy states 1 year, but even after a year you still can get the broken parts fixed, just with a small amount of extra service fee (Rm50-100+) which is definitely less than how much a new pair cost. This small service fee is just to DETER people who misuse their lifetime warranty. The list goes on and if you think about it, it's like "insurance" for your shades, which is so crutial especially if it's expensive or around Rm1000. That's because if you break a pair which is around Rm1000 without warranty, the money is GONE... whereas if you have warranty, just have to change a new pair by claiming from the warranty! smile.gif

Of course they say you cannot claim for accidental damage, but if you go through the right people, it SURELY can be changed easily, not a problem at all! There's a huge list of benefits buying with warranty, but the important ones are above and I dont want to make this reply too long.. smile.gif

Regarding orders directly from Oakley's Website, they only deliver it to people in USA and it comes with their USA warranty. People OUTSIDE USA cannot order/receive Oakley from the website, they have to get it from authorized distributors! smile.gif

Receiving straight from the US = guranteed ori but no warranty so..in actual fact without warranty still ori

So with warranty, I can get a brand new pair when I've spoilt mine with an extra RM50+ RM100+?

Who are the rite people? hmm.gif will YOU always be here?

To warranty or nt hmm.gif
No warranty but GURANTEED ori = at least 50% discount frm M'sian retail price
Warranty = Expensive price + MUST add a little more to change spoilt parts + MUST find the RIGHT person

what shall a buyer do?

Receiving straight from the US = guranteed ori but no warranty so..in actual fact without warranty still ori

So with warranty, I can get a brand new pair when I've spoilt mine with an extra RM50+ RM100+?

Who are the rite people? hmm.gif will YOU always be here?

To warranty or nt hmm.gif
No warranty but GURANTEED ori = at least 50% discount frm M'sian retail price
Warranty = Expensive price + MUST add a little more to change spoilt parts + MUST find the RIGHT person

what shall a buyer do?
*
Do remember that you cannot order directly from USA to be delivered to Malaysia or anywhere outside Malaysia. There's only 1 company which is the official districutor, and that's Oakley Malaysia (Revelstoke). So yup, if you're getting it from USA then guarantee original, but do you know that there's so many fakes out there that looks original? Give you a pair you'll surely think it's original! tongue.gif Check out lelong.com... they look awesome, but check the price and then you'll realise. What i'm trying to say is.. get from Oakley Malaysia = 100% original smile.gif

Yup, you're right.. with warranty you can do so.

50% discount frm Malaysian retail is excessive... check properly, it's definitely not smile.gif

No need to find the right person for follow up (although you still can come back to me). WHY?

1. Because I'm just giving you a good price
2. Warranty is not given by me, but by Oakley Malaysia.

Therefore, you can go back straight to Oakley Malaysia because the warranty card can be used to claim directly from them. Clearly you havent bought an original Oakley tongue.gif Then you'll ask, will Oakley Malaysia always be here? haha...

Just take perfect care of your pair dude. Just because I'm eligible for warranty doesn't mean I can treat it with less care.

Yup, that's the sunglasses that he was talking about! It's actually a limited stock model, so there was very few available only and those I had was snapped up like hot cakes! Check out http://forum.lowyat.net/topic/838019/+100

My prices are always better than those outside, so whether I have promotion or not, it's still better than outside! smile.gif smile.gif

Hi all,

For now I'm looking Oakley M Frame Sweep for my client & maybe Oakley Warden for myself.

This Oakley M Frame Sweep must be a polarized & red/black in colour. On the other hand, for this Oakley Warden must be in black or grey colour. Currently, I'm wearing Oakley Monster Dog (since few years back & no regret bought it..!!)

Perhaps anyone sifu here can help me to get those Oakleys with good price & original, of course..!!

I'm not log in LYN everyday but to whoever have those items with a good offer, can reach me thru my email: sly_sixty9@yahoo.com or mobile:012-252 0702.

Hopefully can get it b4 this coming CNY as I've already made a promise to my client...as a CNY gift.. icon_question.gif Attached ImageAttached Image

Correct, but did you know that Rm 999 is still WAY below the retail? Plus, there's a limited number of stock, so it is extremely RARE and even if you find it, it'll be way above 4 digits.

Then again, I manage to do the impossible! I found a pair of GOLD limited edition Tom Ford James Bond shades! The GOLD pair is one of the RAREST you'll ever get! Enjoy the pictures below & let me know if you're interested! smile.gif

No no... warranty is not to jack up the price. Warranty = STANDARD package, but people who're illegally importing it try to cover up for the warranty and pretend it's not important. That's a fact, so buyers SHOULD be careful! smile.gif

Warranty card filled or unfilled, there's a chip in there where laymans (unfortunately) dont know, and certainly you cant be getting a Malaysian warranty card because the warranty in Malaysia is provided by Oakley Malaysia, unless this item is not brought in by Oakley Malaysia, which is the case.

Of course you can claim, that's the whole purpose of the warranty! The little service charge is a negligable amount as compared to paying for a brand new pair if you cant claim warranty! Which is.. indeed, sad.

Anyway, what you're questioning is the warranty provided by Oakley Malaysia, and the warranty that comes STANDARD with every original Oakley bought by any official distributor such as Focus Point, England optical, etc. So if you're worried about the warranty, you should clarify with Oakley Malaysia. If everything is bad about Oakley's warranty, why is Focus point/england optic/ etc selling Oakleys from Oakley Malaysia and not from your "source"? There must be something right and wrong about that.. hahahaha..

Anwyay, my items comes directly from Oakley Malaysia, exactly the same as what you get from Focus Point etc but just at a much better price smile.gif


Hi Bodhi, you've brought up a good question. Well, the wire series of Oakley has plenty of "not so curved" frames which can easily be fitted with power shades. Check them out and let me know if any interest you or if you need any help identifying them smile.gif

i bought mine off a shop actually..

i could get it at such price bcuz my mom has been a customer n introduced many others since she was still a teen..

just like my watch, i got it at a price where the shop only earned 30 bucks from me.. i know bcuz he showed me his invoice that stated the cost price..

some go for higher profit, while some go for bigger volume, so it all depends..i guess. tongue.gif

Yup RB 3025 is the classic pair. Though, after comparing the pieces, I find the RB 3386 fits my face nicely.

Srsly, shades are weird, in the sense that you HAVE to try them out first. The 3386 looks super weird on screen, but are damn cool in reality.

I think its rather obvious. You see, Oakley and Ray Ban specialises in manufacturing sunglasses. Therefore, they are sure to pump millions of dollars into R&D of the shades they produce.

Levis on the other hand, specialises in jeans. Sure they do sell shades too, near the counter usually, for impulsive buyers who wanted to get a pair of shades anyway, and choose convenience over brand/quality.

You can see how good Oakley and Ray Ban are, by looking at 1 of the posts by fireball, about how they do R&D on Oakleys, so that the glass won't shatter if hit by something, so it won't damage ur face etc.

try to check Oakley and Ray Ban sunglasses...they got lots of nice,cool and attractive sunglasses to choose...

or probably just try to check any spectacle shops(something like England Optical),ask them you wanted to add-on sunglasses on specs,surely they can provide you,but didn't know the price... smile.gif

You can buy the sunglasses and send it to an optical shop to make the lenses. Try buying sunglasses with less curve at the front as it's harder to make curved powered lenses.

I think its rather obvious. You see, Oakley and Ray Ban specialises in manufacturing sunglasses. Therefore, they are sure to pump millions of dollars into R&D of the shades they produce.

Levis on the other hand, specialises in jeans. Sure they do sell shades too, near the counter usually, for impulsive buyers who wanted to get a pair of shades anyway, and choose convenience over brand/quality.

You can see how good Oakley and Ray Ban are, by looking at 1 of the posts by fireball, about how they do R&D on Oakleys, so that the glass won't shatter if hit by something, so it won't damage ur face etc.

Yup, exactly right in regards to the R&D spent. Oakley's plutonite lenses are really jaw-droppingly imporessive!

Well, pick and style and let me know which you're interested in! Then, let me know your power and I'll make the sunglasses possible for you! smile.gif

Of course you can... the price of the lens will depend on how high your power is! Also, the sunglasses should not be too curved as you cannot fit in powered lenses in too curved sunglasses! tongue.gif

That's a unique brand! I do carry that brand as well, so do let me know which model you're interested in so we can all have a fair piece of comment, while I will see if I can offer you a better deal for that than what you'll get out there! smile.gif

Hi fireball,

Usually for RX sunlenses, which brand will be your choice. I got mine from Hoya (eyeveil suntint series), its good but i dont like the AR coatings reflection color on those lenses (green residue). Which brand offered mirror coatings? (like those on oakley). Do u have Transitions Lenses offered by Carl Zeiss? Preferebly polycarbonate type (similar to airwear offered by Essilor). I heard Zeiss lenses are very good and the coatings are better than those offered by Essilor and Hoya (easy to clean, hydrophobics.....etc). If u have can u PM me the price for my prescription (R=-3.50, L=-3.25, Astig. R=-1.00, L=-1.25) TQ.

Hey Locozz, wow, so many questions to answer here. Maybe we could discuss all of them in detail through PM! tongue.gif

Anyway, HOYA suntint series is great, and they have a great choice of colours as well! The darker tinted ones would actually give you less reflection colour, but I understand what you mean by that greenish hue to it tends to give. It's actually part of the multi-coat which is beneficial!

Mirror coating / iridium coating/ mercury coating. These are extra coatings together with polarize coat is actually available.. but because of their prices, people are not bothered to even consider them. The problem with using cheap coatings is they peel of easily and hence become really ugly. Anyway, if any of you is really interested in mirror/iridium coating, you can always look for me.

In regards to your question, for sure Carl Zeiss has transition among their range. To be honest, you'll pay more for a carl zeiss when Hoya or Essilor is good enough. These brands have smudge resistance, scratch, blablabla resistance among their options. Lets face it, in Malaysia, these are the 2 most reliable and top brands and I only recommend them to all my customers. If you want Carl Zeiss, it wont be a problem looking for them.. but that's just if you have spare change to offer in my humble opinion! smile.gif
