    Bought a pair of Persol 9649S in havana with brown lens from the Sunglass Hut 40% off sale, love em. Made in Italy quality, crystal lenses and great classic style. Oakley also have great optics but I am not so keen on the styles anymore.

    People with broad heads - it is a PITA finding sunglasses.

    Ah ok. Well most of the sunnies in the wiley-x range specify a size, either s-m or m-l. I've got two pairs that fit into the m-l category and you'd have to have a damned fat head not to be able to wear them :p

    So go through their range and find the M-Ls..

    Few straight up are Brick, Echo, Gravity, Valor, Jake, XL-1, P17.


    Looking on that vision direct site, the one thing they all seem to have in common is a lens size north of 60mm, so you might also have a try searching on there for glasses 60-80mm. They also do a virtual try on where you can take a pic of your mug and see what they'll look like on. Unfortunately it's not across the entire product range :(

    Yeah finding glasses that fit well and are comfortable is a PITA when you've got a big head.

    I've got a pretty big head and the Wiley X XL-1 in M-L fit me well so I suspect their other models in similar size would be OK as well.

    Some of the Oakley frames are OK as well but you need to check their sizes more closely. The best are my old Juliets as they have flexible joints in the bridge and to a lesser extent the temples so they adjust to fit.

    Last time I went to a sunglasses hut I ended up buying a pair I didn't really like but I needed them and they were the best of a bad lot. Have bought online ever since.

    I use work blue ice sunglasses I love them not to dark. I also have very very minor prescription. So work buys me Oakley work glasses 2 pairs a year fuel gascans I think there called one tinted one of those transistions. Get orginal lenses in the box so now I have about 6 pairs, I just hope on eBay and buy a different lens for each.

    For my personal prescription glasses I wear quicksilvers generally thanx bupa. Only time I need to wear them is shooting trying to focus on target and crosshairs throws me. They didn't want to orginal sell me glasses as it was a waste till I told them I'll grab 2 pairs on bupa and 2 pairs 4 work.
