M.B. Opticians, Colaba

Situated on Colaba Causeway, this one comes across as a regular optic store. But don’t be deceived by the façade. They have some of the best vintage collections that you could ever find, and all the pieces come within a budget! The collection is limited, so we wish you all the luck with finding the perfect pair of vintage sunglasses.

Cat-A-Log, Bandra

Cat-a-log is a fun boutique in Bandra which has a great collection of clothes and accessories that include super stylish sunglasses. We say, rock those diva sunglasses and cat-eyed frames on your next brunch party with the girls!

Where else in SoBo could you go for pocket-friendly sunnies? Always bargain-friendly, Causeway's vendors stock every type and every colour imaginable. Be ready to shop for multiple pairs if you like to horde sunglasses!

Linking Road, Bandra

The 'burbs answer to Causeway, Linking road is lined with vendors selling junk jewellery, sunglasses and more. Here, too, you can bargain hard and land quite a few pairs at a steal. 

Lokhandwala Market, Andheri

You can be sure to find sunglasses across price ranges here as well. There's loads of smaller stores that sell sunnies similar to the ones at Causeway and Linking road, but also loads of optics stores that sell branded eyewear too.

This iconic spot has loads of options for eyewear, branded and otherwise. Looking for a super convincing first copy for a luxury pair? Heera Panna's your best bet. Don't forget to bargain!
