    I can't help you with where, BUT, I can tell you to look at the Maui Jim's.  Without a doubt, optically, the best sunglasses I've ever worn.  Not anywhere near the cheapest, but definitely the best lenses I have ever experienced.

  • if you don't mind online shopping sierratradingpost.com and campmor.com always have good deals, but buying sunglasses without trying them on beforehand is always iffy.

    Agreed, which is why I went to sunglass hut and checked out a couple. 
     
    Jammy, those were probably non-polarized or knockoffs. good deal
    though!
     
    Thanks for all the suggestions.
