Default Best place to buy Costa Del Mar's

The Admiral has finally decided to let me buy her a nice pair of sunglasses.

We have a couple of local companies that carry them but not a real big selection and not the ones she likes, where are some good places online to buy them

I doubt you have Academy, but find a place that has a full replacement guarantee. I highly recommend West Marine since they are a Costa dealer (not to be confused with a "seller") and they honor full replacement. Been there, done that and again, highly recommend using West Marine (if you don't have Academy) since they actually TRACK YOUR PURCHASE! i.e. I don't have or need a receipt..

When I walked into Academy with glasses in hand and say I need another pair, these are scratched, broken, don't fit - doesn't matter - "Sir, go ahead an pick out another pair. We'll credit or charge you the difference" - kewl...

Same applies to WM, been there, done that with wife's CDM glasses!

Just because somebody tells you to go somewhere, doesn't mean you should do it.. Oh wait, that's what I did too!

Seriously, find out why you should go there... Trust me on this. I have replaced 6 CDM's over the years, but only purchased 2 pair. They're great glasses, but the frames - in particular the rubber on the frames and earpieces suck..

Go to a dealer find witch ones you want then go buy them on ebay and save yourself some money. As far as a guarantee goes I always seem to loose them before they break
