Do you not worry about scratching the lenses?
No. Why? Ha ha! My Ralph L. sunglasses (prescription lenses) have a pretty simple design (green frame) with very dark shade. I've been wearing them for a few years, and I don't go out without them. I just moved from a freaky place (but, I love the city as my 3rd home!) where there're at least 350 days of sunny days. I'm pretty careful with them (I tuck them into my neck area too), and don't have any scratch on the lenses. The dark-shade makes me look cool, I think.
My GUESS sunglasse have a white frame (light brownish shade), which just looks like one of the Paris Hilton's glasses. It's without prescription lenses. So I wouldn't wear them if I'm driving my car. Now, I live in such a big city, so driving is unthinkable! I'm not used to drive surrounded by aggressive drivers before in narrow (or 3-4 lanes) and endless one-way streets. Not exactly. Probably, someone (road rage) would put bullet holes on my forehead, if I do defensive driving in this area. Anyway, so I walk a lot block to block. I hate dirty subways too. It's so humid and sunny (hot) here mostly. Anyway, the GUESS sunglasses look cool too, and I can wear them more often here.
Yeah, I'm a big fan of GUESS. I bought a fancy GUESS watch before I moved, but man, I'm too afraid of being mugged in the mean streets of this city. There're scary beggers everywhere. Argh!
The assertion that sunglass-wearers look arrogant is an absolutely ridicolous one. If someone is judging me purely because I'm wearing my shades then frankly that says more about their pathetic nature than it does about me.
It does annoy me when people wear them unnecessarily, for example inside buildings and at night/ in darker conditions. But I don't know why really as in them cases sunglasses could be regarded as just another fashion accessory.
I think it's probably because it makes the wearer seem rude when talking to them, similar to when someone has headphones in perhaps? Not sure
We communicate subtly through facial expressions in social encounters, and the sunglasses could be preventing this??
it is not a fashion statement in my case but if one does want to make a statement with sunglasses what is wrong with that? you could say the same about people who wear scarfs in the summer or people who wear beanie hats when it is hot or baseball caps when it is not sunny or people who wear hoodies when it blatently isn't going to rain (even if the hood is down). why wear a rolex when you could have a cheap plastic watch? why wear anything that could be bought cheaper elsewhere?
i could go on but i think you get my point. If you're going to knock those who wear sunglasses when it isnt sunny you may as well knock everyone who ever made a fashion statement. the only reason i could think sunglasses get more stick than other accessories is that they can on some people look rather cool which has been known to evoke jealous reactions from some. a bit like when a beautiful girl is labelled a slut or a bitch by less attractive women.

Are you kidding? Much better a fat balding man who's earnt it have it than this prick who was born with a silver spoon so far up his arse it's almost puncturing his lungs.
do i smell jealousy????
How do you know he hasn't earnt it? And even if he hasn't: so what? If your dad gave you keys to a new 6 series would you take the moral highground and say ''no thanks''? I didn't think so so stop knocking the guy for it.
