Are Designer Sunglasses Worth the Price? Wall Street Journal article
We all have wondered from time to time about designer sunglasses and what is so special about them. When I say designer brands I mean high end brands like Louis Vuitton, Prada, etc. which a pair can run nearly $500 give or take a hundred or so and that is not even with prescription lenses. Celebrities wear them, no surprise because they have the money or the brands give it to them, along with well to do socialites who can afford a pair. To an average person, like you and I, is it really worth it to buy a pair? What can we gain from it?
The only two reasons I can think of is that first of all, they are designer name brand. People buy them because they are associated with a certain brand and that association perhaps denotes a certain ‘social status’ or an elevated ‘style.’ The second reason, is the quality of the sunglasses themselves. I can maybe understand the price if the pair of shades is constructed of gold plated titanium, with turtle shell details, and the highest quality light-weight polarized lenses. All complete with a leather case with suede on the inside and lifetime warranty. Even then that is a stretch and the quality will not matter they are so happened to be stepped or sat on.
Here is an article from the Wall Street Journal about the value of the designer sunglasses. Here
Honestly speaking, there isn’t a single brand that comes to mind that has the same prices and quality as Kreed and Crush sunglasses do. Nothing better than a great quality return for the price!
