    What about the polfilter topic?

    I never used a polfilter as hobbyphotographer, I never had polarized sunglasses. I just never missed it. My simple brown-coloured plastic-dioptrin glasses give an awesome contrast and great colours.

    Tortoise - Jake rather than Elwood, then.

    I like Wayfarers, though with a suit I prefer Clubmasters. Don't often wear sunglasses as I require prescription lenses, but I do have one pair of an Aviator style prescription sunglasses that are much rounder in the lens, more like the RAF style, which have a more 30s look. LIke those a lot.

    I've found these only have application on the water, boating or especially fishing, as they significantly reduce glare & allow you better see beneath the water's surface.

    That said, polarization interferes with your ability to read many digital displays [e.g., smartphone screens, car dashboards] & I've been told that for this reason their use by US Air Force & Navy pilots is forbidden.

    I never wear polaroids when riding or driving, I’ve been told it can affect contrast. Oakley are my weapon of choice for motoring with a strong sun and amber lense Raybans on duller days. I do have a couple of pairs of Wayfarers that are polarised for pedestrian activity in bright sunlight.
