Tifosi is one of those sunglass brands that are made for this economy: Edgy frames, techy features like adjustable nose/temple hinges, 100% UVA/UVB blockage in wearable styles kicked out with photochromatic/polarized/interchangeable lenses.
At incredible price points. REALLY--- we couldn’t find a pair over $89.95 with most falling into that $40 area.
New For Spring 2010 is the urban chic oversized DEA sunglasses for women. What works for us is that they actually fit our narrower facial features…and have performance toughness that we need for outdoor adventures. ($60)
Also hot is the LUST style. With a sleek frame plus the hydrophilic nose and ear pieces, this model can come with standard polycarbon, polarized, or glare reducing, polarized Fototec lenses (that darken in bright light). (Around $59).
ROUBAIX, named after a coal mining town in France that’s very famous for its bike racing…has three interchangeable lenses and is RX adaptable.
We thought the SALVO ($39.95) an on trend matte/metal frame…is good for guys and gals.
And the TYRANT…a versatile eyepiece…is still selling BIG.
