    DS wants a nice pair of sunglasses for a high school graduation present. I know there are certain restrictions on what kind they can have. Please give any advice. Thanks!

    They must be conservative and can't be worn in formation. That's as specific as the uniform regs get. I stayed all black for mine.

    Agree with CannotBeDisplayed that you are better off sticking with all black if getting solid frames.
    There is a specific site from Oakley for Military / Government - not sure if all of these would be okay...stick with conservative (both lens and frame)

    Of course Ray Ban Aviators - a la Top Gun are pretty popular among the Brigade, too!

    Ray Ban Aviators for parents and siblings at the Mid Store are a pretty good deal!

    Definitely go conservative, all black Oakleys are a safe bet. I know plenty of mids who wore Aviators who got plenty of heat from their peers, got to the point where the jokes got annoying and they stopped wearing them.
