Which colour frame for sunglasses?

Am stuck deciding between black or dark tortoiseshell frames and need to order online to get the particular model I want so can't try on in shop.

I'm a HOC winter so black should work better on my face than the brown, but I wonder if the black might look a bit cheap which they bloody well aren't and the tortoiseshell a bit more classic.

Any opinions gratefully received.

Have googled. Black, most certainly.

I would usually say tortoiseshell, but in this case I think the black looks more expensive.

Thanks, it was those or the RB 4068s.
If you can be bothered to google (sorry DS2 still doing his limpet impression) do you reckon the Expensive in Black still apply?

If you're winter then definately black.
