As soon as I picked these up I could tell that they were not cheap sunglasses. They are hefty but not bulky. The gold chrome finish makes them standout. Posh. The lenses have a slight curve inward that keeps the sunlight out of your peripheral vision. Keeps the sun out without being too dark. Absolutely gorgeous glasses. Only complaint I have is the bulky case. It's to big to fit inside your coat pocket or your cars console. But I did not buy for them the case. I bought them for the quality.
