    I am having a hell of a time choosing between these two pairs of sunglasses. I have tried both of them on at the stores and think they both look good. I need to decide fast however since my friend can only get me 50% until the 19th

    http://cgi.ebay.com.au/Maui-Jim-'Ak...temQQimsxZ20090506?IMSfp=TL090506122001r10351

    Maui Jim Akoni

    and

    http://www.sunglasshut.com/sgh/catalog.jsp?facetId=1#view=pdp&sku=481526

    Prada aviators


    I think the Akoni are a better deal since they are polarized and have the flex hinges. I also think the Pradas look really good but I feel like I am getting jipped since I am paying mostly for the name and the lenses are not polarized.

    Any input at all would be helpful
    thanks OT

    maui jim's are incredible. i have their titanium wire sunglasses. the customer service at Maui Jim's is amazing as well. I had some issues with my titanium wire glasses and they said to send them in, no questions asked. two days later i got a new pair :bowdown:

    you or your friend work for Sunglass Hut?


    My friend lets me know whenever the employee sale day is (they can buy up to 5 pairs) and gets me get in on a pair or two

    that said, the first ones

    i've also tried on the 2nd ones, and i'm not a big fan of the bi-colored arms
    a little too...flamboyant

    I'd buy some Oakleys if I was blowing that kind of money.
