Martha on Daddy's boat
I couldn't. Too damned expensive. I went through Ray Ban Aviators like I went through Red, White and Blue beer. In 1985, Ray Bans were $20 to $25 bucks a pair. I was constantly losing or breaking them. Vuarnet 'Cat Eye' Skilynx were $75 to $80 a pair. They were in another league. People who had money and who didn't lose things.
I always thought (and still do) they looked best on girls. Girls who smoked and drank beer and had a back hand. Girls whose Daddys owned a business -- or two or three. These girls owned Orvis Battenkill luggage, bit their nails, never wore makeup and sadly (for me) always seemed to be Republicans.
