You know, the ones with fish made from sunglasses parts. Well, it looks like someone actually made one. If this is real, imagine what this thing cost?!?!?

    I'm guessing about $50 tops. Hellacious markup on that product.

    Cost to who ??? I'm guessing Costa has ~$5/pair in them... & ~1/2 that is 'marketing'...
    There should be NO Commercial Fishing for any fish species considered 'Over-fished' , 'Undergoing Overfishing' or Subject to Recreational Seasons, Limits, or Closures... Game Fish Status IS the Answer !!!

    All the Costa fish are real. They auctioned off the marlin at The Billfish Foundation awards banquet late last year. I can't remember the winning bid but I think it was like five grand...(money was donated to TBF).

    That one in the pic above actually hangs on the wall in the board room at Costa HQ in Daytona

    My wife and I both were given some spendy $$ pairs of Maui Jim's last year at our Presidents Club trip. Came home and gave them to my parents -- went back to wearing my Costa's...

    Exactly!!!!!

    I've complained about that in the past so I won't go there again, I'll just say they are marketing geniuses.

    They had that piece commisioned, and used all the returned defective crap that they get back in one day.
