There are some Ray-Ban, Carrera, Police and Porsche sunglasses on SecretSales today.

Not the exact ones people were looking for, although these Hugo Boss ones aren't a million miles away from the Boss x Carrera ones.

Are those not the Boss x Carrera? The blurred logo on the arm is Carrera is it not?

Anyway TKMaxx are doing them for £49.99 online.

Any, where would be the best place to buy some reasonably priced vintage Carrera sunglasses?

Any models you'd recommend?

Check the vintage links at the top of the page, but in my experience when you buy vintage frames from a vintage frames specialist they become very pricy. So eBay is a better bet if you're looking for a "reasonable" price. Stuff comes up on Etsy from time to time too.

I saw some Carreras at the maxx a few weeks ago. Unfortunately, not my style

Ideally I'm after a pair of aviators with a metal rim but thicker arms, if you get me.

Also still in search for the best priced polarised CATS-5000…so if anyone knows a good tip, would appreciate it.

Has anyone purchased some Ray ban CATS-5000 recently? Brand Alley currently have a reduction on some but need to find out if they can be had cheaper.

Does anyone know where I can get hold of Carl zeiss sunglasses? They did some a few years back and it seems they have stopped because I just can't find them anywhere?

As far as I'm aware they're not producing their own brand sunglasses any more.

There are lots of other brands who use Carl Zeiss sun lenses (some of which are listed on their website here) if it's the lens quality you're after rather than a specific design.

Alternatively, the vintage shops in the top post will potentially have some, eg http://www.vintage-sunglasses-shop.com/designer_Zeiss_display_20.html
