Anyone have sunglasses they recommend? I am not looking for Gucci or anything too fancy.

depends what you need.
Basic sunglasses, hit Sunglass Hut have a good selection.
Need prescription lenses? Try Lenscrafters.

Personally I have Raybans with prescription progressive (as in short to near multi focus) lenses with a mirrored blue polarized tint finish. Lenscrafters, Sunglass Hut, and Rayban are all owned by the same company.

If you know the shape you want and frame finish, just about any glasses can be sunglasses. Try zennioptical.com online. While I bought my sunnies at Lenscrafters (because I wanted that style/model), zenni did my other prescription glasses, and they do sunglasses as well. Was happy with the quality.

Depends on what you are using the sunglasses for....

Fashion? or keeping the Men in Black Neuralyzer from affecting you?

If that is your end game, polarization is the key. Good polarized optics (proper alignment to minimize the fly eye effect) are now readily available for virtually gas station prices. Good optics used to drive the price up, now it is the designer frames.

Native Eyeware and Maui Jim have been my go to companies for sunglasses.
I'm not totally useless. I can be used as a bad example.
