Just because it is expensive, does not mean its any better. Most time …Just because it is expensive, does not mean its any better. Most time you are paying for the brand name ,rather than the actual object . I find Primark jeans much better than even Levis for fit quality, price and easy returns. Expensive items own you than you owning them . These things are not rocket science , that only a few can make good quality.


Total BS. If you're not interested in the deal go away please.

Firstly, Oakley own many patents, are renowned for their optics, impact protection, and the new PRIZM lenses are fanstatic. They're performance lenses, enhance contrast, and are much better than old Oakley non PRIZM lenses let alone cheap sunglass lenses. I'm mildly short sighted and I can comfortably wear my Oakleys instead of my glasses without prescription as they enhance my vision that much. They make everything look great. Greens and reds really pop - a bit like seeing the world as a Samsung OLED but better.

No other brand offers PRIZM. Some decent brands will also have good lenses, but the cheap ones won't.

Style is subjective, but Oakleys look great to me. The fit is excellent, build quality and warranty and customer service are better. The rubber is better.

You just really don't know what you're talking about.

As for Primark, they use sweat shops. For comoditised items it's not about difficulty - it's that quality costs money. How on earth can all the people involved in the supply chain be paid a decent wage when a pair of jeans cost a few pounds?

I know Carhartt use fully unionised labour. Their jeans are either made in Mexico or the US. Not sure about Levi.

Obviously you pay a premium for those brands. M&S may not be to your style, but they have a well regarded are far more ethical supply chain. I imagine the customer service will be much better too, from my experience.

Then there's quality of materials, and environmental damage, dies etc. E.g. Organic cotton died using dies that aren't as damaging to the environment and handled responsibly.

If you're paying a few quid corners will be cut and cost savings will be made everywhere - at the detriment of workers and the environment, and I'd argue the end product, and likely the person wearing it. That's not to say that if something is more expensive it's automatically made to a higher standard. Brands do add a premium too. But you can get higher quality unbranded or non premium brand goods.

You have to do your research if you actually care about that stuff.

For clothing prana and especially Patagonia are ethical and high quality. But they're expensive unless you get a good deal.

Expensive stuff isn't necessarily good, but cheap stuff won't be unless you don't care about ethics.

Or stolen
Amex have an offer of £20 off a £100 at Oakley.
Just bought 20 Jcb orange safety glasses for £35. I’ve also got Oakly sunglasses and it’s crazy what the markup is. If you like them then buy them as you can’t wear them when your dead 🏻

Cold.

Most of these are cheaper at Igero etc.
Reason why some you don't buy cheap sunglasses. If they don't offer any protection all they are doing is making eye open more because of the darkness around it, letting in more light that will damage you eye.

Absaloutly with you on this... Prizm lenses are amazing I would really recommend trying some then coming back and telling us how your Primark lenses are same as I think you will be in for a shock.

Wow, Shinoke for president - bravo!
Sorry but someone comparing primary jeans with Levi’s and saying they’re better quality? Seriously? Christ.

i have a pair of primark cycling glasses that were £2, very flimsy bur not bad for the price. Eventually bought Oakley, world of difference for build quality.

Really annoying when people come into threads and offer some inferior product for far less as it’s totally irrelevant. The people in the market for a pair of Oakley glasses aren’t weighing up the option of a £2 pair of primark.
I had an accident at 13 years old, and have a permanently dilated (wide open) pupil in one eye. That means that even today I'll have to put on sunglasses at some point.
I'll be wearing the blue Oakley XX I bought in America 14 years ago.Still look perfect, still do their job. I paid about $120 for them back then, it now seems like a bargain.
I own another 4 pairs, all Oakley. Personally don't think i'll ever buy another brand.
I've got two pairs of Oakleys; X-Metal Juliets and Half Wires. The former I bought 13 years ago for $300, the latter three years ago for $150, both while on holiday in the US. I take care of them, they've lasted magnificently and are as good as the day they were bought. Like many things, investing in a good quality item is worthwhile.
Oakley also made the sunglasses for those Chilean miners that were trapped in a cave, so this hignlights their expertise in quality glasses rather primark expertise.
Is this the same version as the Prism ones. Doesn't mention Prism in the info.

Good question. I assumed they were PRIZM Saphire, but they actually look to be Sapphire Iridium, as listed elsewhere:
igero.com/sun…342

So no contrast enhancing.

Personally I would pick some Holbrooks, Mainlinks or Crossrange over these - and definitely go for PRIZM.

PRIZM Saphire Polarised is what I have for my Turbines, very nice.
Wow that’s expensive
