Exactly what I was looking for...
- Gender: Female
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
The Chemist is one of those frames that is likely to look good on anyone. Just pick the color you like (I purchased the polarized black/violet split) and go! I'm considering getting a backup pair. Really sweet glasses, worth the price, just do it.
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
what can I say? I've had my chemists for about 4 seasons now. I've dropped them, sat on them, thrown them, drown them. They have fallen off cliffs, into the ocean, and been lost at the depths of my car. They are still standing! My go to sunnies for everyday activities. Once my pair dies (if that is even possible) you can betcha I'll be getting these exact same glasses again. They really are that cool, your grandma will even compliment you in these...mine did!

The chemist ensures that not only will you be cooler than all the other science nerds - you will probably get a modeling contract too. Gave this to my man for his birthday and he looks hot. Love how the Smiths perform - they never scratch ..last forever and are excellent on your face. Do us all a favor and buy you a pair. I am such a diehard fan of Smith's you won't be disappointed
Can you really go wrong? I think unless your head is as big as a watermelon.. these shades are impossible to look anything other than ridiculously good in. And if your head is as big as a watermelon, you'll just have to wear goggles year round, sorry.
This glasses get the job done. Look good on just about anyone. they are a little bit smaller frame than what the photo make them look. Love the double hinge so there is no strain on the hinge!! If you thinking about buying then just do it!
Great Sunglasses, Expensive
These sunglasses look great, are durable, comfortable, and have great lenses. However, I'm not sure what makes any sunglasses worth more than $100. Ignoring the price these are great sunglasses. The lenses in mine have a slight blue tint, which somehow makes any day and any snow look prettier. Also, the lenses have popped out of mine when I've dropped them before which makes me wonder why Smith doesn't sell replacement lenses.
Pretty Rockin Sunglasses
These are some of the better glasses I have bought for the price. They look and feel great. Definitely made cruising around the beach. Pretty darn good lenses on them too. I took them while fishing and they did great.
They do not have a padded nose and tend to slip if your doing something very active. Also, if you have a smaller face - I would probably try to find something else
When I first got them I was trying to figure out how they looked, but the lights weren't bright enough. So I asked my fashionista daughter and got a wicked stamp of approval.
As always, Smith comes through with divine craftsmanship, sick styling and a lifetime warranty. What's not to love. Scored the Stone Green off S&C for a steal (although you can find an older rendition @ departmentofgoods for a little less, one color.

What's going on with the studs on the front? They look a little flashy? Think I could just sharpie over them or something?
It's a design element. There are dozens of sunglasses that don't have them if you don't want them.
Smith Chemist Sunglasses - Polarized Sunglasses
These are cool as! My choice for casual sunnies. Look awesome, and are awesome to look through also. The polarised lens makes for clear, crisp vision.
The style gets 5 stars too! I love these sunnies!
The Chemist is one of my favorite Smith glasses OF ALL TIME. I'd say I consistently wear this shade more than any other. I even toured in it all season-- worked well for that because they didn't fog as easily as a shade that shapes more to the curvature of your face. These look sweet on (totally classic look) and then they end up being a functional sunny too?... They're bitchin'
Got the Teal/Smoke ones and they rock! Classic old school look with all the new school features. Love the polarized lenses for driving and they will be great for the lake this summer. I have a larger head so they work and look great. Watch for them on sac and save yourself a few bucks.
Form over function
Smith is a sports sunglass company but these shades are good for driving and strutting around town, not fast paced action. They will slip off your head. That being said, they are really comfy with the spring loaded arms, the polarized lenses are crisp, and they are pretty trendy cool right now.
I'm not a Chemist but I'll rock em'
Love the Polarized lenses, they are fantastic. A little loose fitting but maybe it's just my face. Super stylish and always getting positive feedback on them. The overall style is fantastic and I love the look and feel of them!
Classic style doesn't fade. Go with the black/polarized for a Johnny Cash or Bob Dylan thing or the crazy neons for 80's surf. The shades have a little give/spring in the temples which means they're comfortable and will fit a wide variety of face sizes. You can't go wrong with the Chemist.
I love finding a unique fresh looking pair of shades! There are so many different fun color combos to pick from and they look great. They have flexing steel hinges which makes them durable and comfortable. If you like the look i suggest buying a pair!
My favorite sunglasses
Overall a great pair of sunglasses - my favorite to date. Style: a mix of retro Ray Ban style with a bit of a modern touch. Fit: I have an average to smaller sized face and these glasses fit me perfectly. Comfort: Average weight, very comfortable nose bridge and no pressure on ears/side of head. Would be a bit challenging to wear while playing sports as they tend to slide about a centimeter down my nose when looking down to play golf. Lens quality: Excellent - very clear. My brother commented on how nice the lenses were when he tried them on.
I would highly recommend theses sunglasses
