    I save my Oakleys for off the job. I wear cheap glasses to protect my eyes from dirt and rocks while trimming, edging, etc. I only spend enough on them so I don't look like a clown on a customer's property.

    $200 Ray-Ban's for driving, they always stay in the truck. Cheapos from the flea market for working, they usually last a month or two before they are scratched to hell.

    Wear Randolph Engineering Sunglass', Series - Aviator all of the time. I started using them in the Army and have never looked back. Used to be you would never see me outside without them on. I get a pair every year from the wife as a stocking stuffer, so I have several old ones with knicks and stuff I used to wear while working. They work well and protect from all UV light. A flying client gave me Cébé 'Cecchinel' Sunglasses when he found out I was expanding this business, they are very dark which I like, and have side covers to protect against flying stuff. I have started to use them while working outside with trimmers and mowers, They work really great. They are VERY COOL, I think when I break or damage these I will get them again. They are about 150 bucks, but good glasses are not cheap, and how much are your eyes worth????. This client is known for expensive gifts, gave me a Mont Blanc pen set because it matched my last name. Gotta like a person like that.

    Picked up some cheapo Stihl's for 12 bucks. I put them through the blades on my mower and they came out clean.
