Most will probably opt for "whatever is on sale" (or cheapest) for many items in this list, including myself. Which is cool. Heck, this is mega-overpriced Hawaii, where everyone is cost-conscious.

Yet, there are some who are very loyal to the brand name of certain products. I know a few. VOLVO comes to mind. SONY too. As well as APPLE. ;)

For me? I like my sunglasses CHEAP, generic and cool-lookin', as I always sit on them and break 'em. My friend is a hardcore Ray-Ban fan.

I like my sunglasses CHEAP, generic and cool-lookin', as I always sit on them and break 'em. Try paying a bit more for sunglasses that come with instructions, bro. You're supposed to wear 'em on your head, not your butt!
