    are white sunglasses played out?

    Hello, do you think white sunglass frames are played out? They were cool back in 2011 but now it seems like *everyone* is wearing them. Even lame people. So are there any new trends in sunglasses that don't involve white frames?

    They were never cool. Ever. Unless you're a girl.

    I still wear my Casey Stoner Ducati special edition Oakleys that are probably 5 or 6 years old. So, does that make me out of touch, or retro?

    Stoner's retired, which makes your Oakleys a collector's item! Now go find some Marc Marquez shades...

    Totally. I wear a pair of red Sidi's, and matching Oakley Jawbones, or a pair of white Sidi's, with a pair of matching white Jawbones. Christ on a crutch, sometimes I wear a wool jersey.

    Why would you even care what other people think? If you want to wear white sunglasses, wear them!

    Cool-blue Rhythm

    Sometimes while on a mountain bike, I roll up my bib shorts really high (that's right, no baggies) and let my pee-pee flutter in the wind*. After that mind enlightening experience, you won't give a rat's ass about the color of anyone's sunglass frames.

    *Ladies, a cooling breeze to your cooch can be just as effective.

    Man, I got screwed. What I thought was a top shelf 2014 DB kit was actually from 2013. Who's the DB and who's the retro-DB now?
    The most expensive bike in the world is still cheaper than the cheapest open heart surgery.

    Holy F@#$, you're right! I just Googled it, and Ducati Juliets like mine are going for $700-800! I still have the box and everything somewhere, even the coin it came with. I ought to flip them for a new pair and pocket the difference.

    Re: are white sunglasses played out?

    If you still wear a baseball cap backwards then white sunglasses are acceptable.

    That sounds liberating but beware ultaviolet exposure on your johnson! ha!

    White frame sunglasses seems nice. Are you trying to match them with a pair of shoes and or gloves ? Just remember not to wear white after labor day and you'll look marvelous.
