A great pair of sunglasses, with excellent build quality. Very unique mirror finish on the lens that complemented the gold on the frame. The glasses case and chain were also well built. That being said, the glasses didn't quite fit on my head, and fit loose and crooked. Any movement of my head caused them to slip down my nose. Not the fault of the sunglasses in particular, but still something to consider.
Overall still impressed with the glasses. They were just not for me.
These sunglasses are super high quality with UV protection and frame itself. The packaging is very dark and durable which perfectly goes a long way. Last, the barbwire chain is the highlight of the shades, I wear them with confidence and protected! Would recommend to purchase!
