:rofl: I don't know - he sure does post a lot of pictures of beautiful women! Cyrus is a fashion, um, guru? Nazi? Wacko? As his sign off says, check out his fashion tips. (Actually, he gives pretty good fashion advice - especially for an engineer :cool: ! Jason, you got that job selling clothes, right? I think you'd appreciate his point of view, probably.)
No one ever listens to advice though.

It's hard to give advice while selling clothes. The bottom line is to sell clothes and if people liked horribly fitted clothes, then so be it.

I tried giving advice about washing clothes properly, wearing certain fits depending on size, and colors. No one listens ever.

The classic aviator style is over rated. It doesn't give much peripheral protection.

A slight wrap around style works better. They protect your eyes from sunlight better, plus give a little more protection from debris (not a very high priority unless you drive a Jeep or convertible).

I don't go for the Ray-bans and Oakleys, either. You can get cheap sunglasses that give the same protection. You don't feel so bad when break them, lose them, or have them stolen. I even ran over my sunglasses once - they slipped off my dashboard and onto the road and were crushed by my rear tire before I could react.

Sunglasses really shouldn't protrude below the top of the ala, nor above the eyebrow. They shouldn't protrude past a plane parallel to the side of the head where the frame rests on the ear.

I'm kind of surprised the military doesn't have more detailed regulations on what's acceptable. They just say faddish sunglasses are banned, but specifically say the wrap around style is allowed (these are more functional, but some traditionalists may consider them faddish).

Interestingly, commercial pilots can't wear polarized sunglasses. The windows of most commercial aircraft are polarized and some of the instruments have polarized covers. The glare of sunlight from other aircraft is considered important to avoiding mid-air collisions rather than an annoyance.

Equally interesting, in the 19th century amber or brown lens sunglasses were prescribed for patients with syphillus. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sunglasses

Thats why I bought rayban sunglasses. They were classic in the 60's, they came back in the 80's, and they'll come back again in a few summers. They just dont go bad, so they are worth buying.
You get a pair of sunglasses to last that long? Mine never survive that long. I tried more expensive ones once, just to see if they lasted longer. Nope. I have amazing talent when it comes to completely destroying sunglasses, so I stick with ones under $15 if I can at all help it. I'm just glad I don't need to wear regular glasses. That would be a lot more expensive. I've dropped them on the ground, smooshed them in the purse, lost them overboard on boats and canoes, snapped off wings without a clue how I managed to do it, and generally scratch the heck out of them. I even tried being extra careful to keep them in a case anytime I wasn't wearing them, but then they'd manage to miraculously escape the case in my purse, or I'd drop them on concrete while trying to put them in the case. :rolleyes:
