Any of you guys own G&G Black Wayfarer 80's Blues Brothers Sunglasses Super Dark? How is it?
The reason I bought these is because they resemble the sunglasses Ray Charles wore on certain occasions, and Ray also wore wayfarer shades on the cover of his 1962 country album. I play keyboards and they look very identical aside from the silver knobs on the top corner. I prefer these to ray bans not only because they are 70 bucks cheaper, but because they don't have any logos or signatures on the lenses, which kind of ruin the look a little. For being made in China, they are pretty sturdy quality and do not feel like cheap dollar store sunglasses and actually fit me pretty well. The lenses are pretty dark and reflect a lot, which only add to the benefits of this style. As for actually blocking out the sun, its decent but probably not as great as the more expensive ray bans, but who cares, they look just like a $75 dollar pair of Ray Bans, and don't have any annoying logos on the lenses, and the only difference between these and Ray Bans is the country they are made, and maybe slightly cheaper lenses and build quality, but why spend that much, when these look the same and look awesome, plus make for cheap replacement if you drop them or scratch the lens. You will feel just as awesome as Ray Charles and all the other celebrities that wore these from the mid 50s to today including Michael Jackson, Tom Cruise, John F. Kennedy, Billy Joel, Roy Orbison, Madonna, and Andy Warhol, which shows these sunglasses have wide appeal from every field of media and art. I'm looking at a picture of Michael Jackson wearing these, and they look exactly the same as these pairs, so they are completely in style and even though they kind of have an old fashioned 60s look to them, they are still great sunglasses and have been worn and endorsed by the world's most famous celebrities and figures for over 50 years.
