Sunglasses - Where to Buy?

I do not buy much for myself but I would like to treat myself to some sunglasses. To me they are a lot of money (about CHF300).
I say that because everyone on here seems to earn a fiortune compared to me.

I have been looking at Persol Sunglasses and wondered:

(1) would it be cheaper to buy them in Switzerland or UK or even Italy.
(2) are buying them on-line generally cheaper
(3) any suggestions on shops.

Re: Sunglasses - Where to Buy?

My last (unfortunately lost) sunglasses were Persol and they were definitely cheaper in London than here in Lausanne.
I recently bought Serengeti polarized sunglasses, which have an anti-glare coating on the back, and which are wonderful.
They are certainly the best I've ever had in my long life, and I find them particularly good for driving along the lake in winter, when the sun is low.
I didn't have the chance this time to compare the prices and bought them in Switzerland.
I possibly paid more than I would have in London, but I certainly don't regret buying them.

Re: Sunglasses - Where to Buy?

This is what I did- go to a local shop without your significant other, try a bunch on, settle down to 3 styles, ask them to write the style number down because you cant decide and need your partner with you to help make your decision, go home and search online to who has the best offer and buy online. I did this with my last pair (in shop it was 350fr) and online even after DHL cost and customs I paid 180fr.
