THESE LENS ARE ABSOLUTELY THE BEST!!! WANT SO MUCH TO HAVE THESE BACK ON THE MARKET AGAIN.
Signed the petition and hope everyone else does too.
I'm new to this site. I see all the interest in original Sunclouds. Well I have a pair of original Sunclouds in mint condition. They have the case, box and stickers on the lens. They are sort of wayfarer looking. I may consider selling for the right price. These are extremely, extremely rare from what I can see. Thanks!

It sounds like they might be authentic, but of course you can never be too sure. I would recommend calling Suncloud Optics to see if they are able to find a way to validate their authenticity.
The Vuarnets are very nice sunglasses though!

I am glad you found our forum useful. Rose colored lenses are great and everything appears sharp and contrasted. Most hues in the warmer spectrum of the color wheel are great for highlighting. Browns, Amber's, Yellows and Vermilion all work great for bringing the detail and sharpness. However these lenses aren’t color correct. They will wash your view with their warm colors. And that is really nice!
Let us know what's on your mind.

I tried the Body Glove Sandy Beach and Wahoo rose sunglasses that someone mentioned as being close to SCR (Suncloud Rose) lenses and found them adequate but a little light (lets too much sunlight through). I just tried a new brand that is quite close to SCR. They are Oceano sunglasses from Italy. While they are not polarized they do have reflective coating. The sales rep said they were made with the original Suncloud Rose lens in mind. Couldn't find a website for them.
I saw two models w/ the rose lenses, the Aspen and I can't remember what the other one was. Big 5 sporting goods has both the Oceano and the Body Glove sunglasses normally at about $110 but now on sale for around $45 or $50.
Any more left of these?
