    Can anyone recommend a site to buy genuine Ray Ban sunglasses at a reasonable price?

    I'm looking for the RB3183 004/71

    The prices of goods like these are pretty strictly controlled so that online sellers don't undercut the stores.

    Google "RB3183 004/71"; prices vary from €74.20 to €165.00.
    What constitutes "reasonable"?
    You can buy a grand paid of sunglasses on Amazon for a fiver but while others may not notice you just won't feel as cool while wearing them. I know, I've done both. :D

    They are reduced to €109 on Sunglasses.ie at the moment and there's also mention of a price match guarantee on their website (no idea what the T&Cs of this price match are).

    They have a well established shop on Dawson Street, Dublin 2, which might prove handy if you want to try them on, get a bit of advice, or need after sales assistance etc.

    This is a late post but based on my own experience I would only buy designer sunglasses on the official website of the particular manufacturer.
