I suspect you knew my answer before reading this one. Clearly, I do not think designer sunglasses are worth the price. In fact, I normally buy fairly cheap sunglasses because, given my history with sunglasses, they have a high likelihood of being sat on, dropped from my head or otherwise crushed before the end of summer. At least when this happens I only feel bad about being out $15 instead of $200 (or more).
I know there are other considerations such as UV protection, prescription lenses, etc, but I have to believe cheap sunglasses do just as good a job. What side of the sunglasses argument do you fall: cheapo shades or designer all the way?
