1.0 out of 5 stars Worked fine for a week, then fell apart., September 7, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Polarized Eyewear Shiny Wayfarer Style Sunglasses Various Colors (Eyewear)
These Wayfarer copies are decently made. They look the part, other than the word "polarized" in the corner, and are made of decent plastic. Lens quality was actually pretty excellent for sunglasses this cheap and I tested them, they ARE polarized. Fairly comfortable too and the arms are nicely spring-loaded.

Unfortunately, they also don't last long. My pair lasted almost exactly a week until I pulled them out of my shirt pocket and the right temple promptly fell out. It seems as thought he tiny screw that holds in the arm had worked itself free at some point. I never found the screw, and because of the springloaded construction of the arms there's no way to put it back if I found it, so the sunglasses are now useless.

Serves me right for not buying the real thing.

Take the broken pair to a good optical near you. They should be able to replace the screw. Spring hinges are a pain to fix, but it is definitely possible.
