I ordered these glasses along with another pair (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001MTSJYW/ref=oss_product) at the same time. Both came on the same day (I think it was about 4 days) and they were both in great condition. However, these ones were 10x better! They both have the same look and I couldn't really tell a difference between them so I stuck with these ones. They have spring loaded hinges (which I understand is rare in this style of glasses) and are exactly what they say they are. I went over to my local wal-mart eye center and they were able to cut me a pair of lenses easily! I was pretty excited cause these frames are very durable, cheap and awesome. The lenses were cut for me within 3 days and they work perfectly. These can indeed hold prescription lenses (assuming the prescription you have isn't too thick.) I recommend these glasses to anyone looking for a pair in this style.

For anyone curious, Wal-Mart cut my lenses for only 30$ and a 10$ cutting fee (15$ per lens) for plastic lenses, so 40$ total. I wanted to make sure the glasses could handle prescription lenses before I invested too much in glass or higher quality lenses but these ones work great. :)

Firstly,the glasses shipped faster than I expected them to, within 5 days.
They are great quality, very sturdy and came with a nice little pouch/ cleaner to put them in.
To get them cleanest, I put the glasses inside and clean that way.
They are a little dim, but you can't really tell. I wore them for three days before someone pointed out that they were tinted. They aren't any where close to being as dark as sunglasses.

I wear these glasses more than I probably should. It's practically a daily basis that you'll see me wearing them. I go out to eat and shop with them on sometimes. You get plenty of double takes! Ha ha.
I'm very pleased with this purchase and would recommend these glasses to anyone who has a use for them.

If you're reading this so you have a good reason to buy the Vintage "Buddy" Wayfarer Blues Brothers Clear Sunglasses, what are you waiting for? You've got nothing to lose!

Price: At under four dollars and free shipping (I had Amazon Prime, but cost of shipping without one is under a buck), it beats any mall stores and carts pricing hands down. Also these glasses are not graded ( or have +/- vision), just to make that clear.

The way I use it: I'm near sighted and cannot read anything further than six feet. I use these glasses indoors while wearing contacts to look nerdy and switch to my Ray-Ban aviators when I'm outside. I also could make really dorky profile pictures on Facebook.

What could you could also do with it: Over time I gave the glasses to my little sister because she bugged me so much for them. For about $40-$50 at your local optometrist you could replace the lenses for prescription ones.

Build:
- For what you're paying for, it's a little fragile, this is where the glasses doesn't shine as much in terms of quality. But my glasses HAS NOT cracked on the arms yet or anywhere around, but I've been giving it a beating inside my backpack or inside the drawer of my desk. Just keep the glasses safe and not sit/step on it, you're good.

- As for the size, there is only one but fits me well. If the glasses that they give you when you watch a 3D movie at the theater these days fits you, then these glasses would fit you too.
(Note: The 3D glasses is just about half an inch longer than the Wayfarer, but at least you have an idea of how big it is.)

- The plastic lenses might scratch easily, so try using a microfiber cloth instead of a paper towel or shirt often. But if you did get light scratches on the lenses, it's not noticeable when you wear them.

- The glasses is not completely plastic. The joints of the glasses is supported by a metallic screw, but the hinges are plastic.

Why should you get it? I'm a guy. And girls with these glasses makes me turn my head when they walk by me. In other words, it makes any girl look cute with these on. Same goes for guys with these on.

If you skipped lunch for one day (or didn't buy a soda with that meal), you could invest on these glasses. :]

Also, I had no problems with the clarity of the plastic and no yellowing.

Being only $3 I can't really be too harsh on these glasses, but the quality really isn't that great. I bought these because I wanted a decent pair of wayfarers that weren't real Ray-Bans (I own a pair, and I personally don't like the logo on the temple). I wasn't expecting much of the glasses considering the price, but the reviews I read made me think that they might actually be decent. Unfortunately I was wrong. I would not recommend these for Rx use. They're really just for being silly, or for a Halloween costume.

After encountering minor issues with delivery, the company managed to resolve such issues very professionally and above and beyond my satisfactory level. Not to mention, upon arrival of the product, the item was exactly as it appeared on the seller's page without any flaws. None the less, I am very satisfied that I chose to conduct business with this company, I look forward to making future purchases and would recommend that consumers do the same. Thank you Private Island.

The glasses were just what I wanted. Totally hip and cool. The only thing I didn't particularly like, was that the lens has a yellowish tint to them. It's not noticable when you wear them, only if someone takes a photo of you. Other than that, these are awesome! Wearing them makes me feel cool.

I just received these glasses in the mail a few hours ago! I paid $1.14 for them which is an awesome deal!! They werent packaged that securely, but they werent broken or anything. The glasses came in a cardboard box and were inside a little plastic baggie. The glasses itself are nice. The plastic isnt as sturdy as i would like. Its pretty flimsy and light, but i guess thats what i get because i got them so cheap. But they seem like they should last a while with proper care. The thing i like about them is the clearness of the lenses. Ive tried on some glasses similar to these in store and they were blurry. I wear contacts so i know its not my vision. But these glasses were perfectly clear. I would recommend them. Its kinda an unbeatable deal compared to other places.
