Luxottica on 60 Minutes

I've sort of known about Luxottica making a large number of eye wear and sunglasses brand but I had no clue how far reaching they were. Plus the chairman is an a-hole.

Even more reason to buy Costa Del Mar.

My dad works in the business, so I guess I've always known and taken it for granted.

Outside of Costa, almost everything he sells is Luxottica. It's a monopoly of the highest degree.

Also, Costa makes the best sunglasses. Those that think otherwise are wrong, frankly. Well, Maui Jims are pretty damn good too, so I guess that argument could be made. Other than those two though, it's a HUGE drop off.

He really did seem like a bad guy from a movie. He know how dumb Americans can be in regards to brands and doesn't care one bit to exploit it.

The worst is when she asked him about product diversity and he said "we do give the American people a choice"

Dude looks good for 70.

I have two pairs of Ray-Bans. Both from Ebay and both were under $100.
