They do not have any real wrap around styles but have hundreds of styles, I got some that remind me of the RayBan glasses Perter Fonda wore in Easy Rider but with dark grey polarized lenses.

Zenni orders direct from Asia but they have excellent customer service. They noticed a mistake I made on my prescription and asked me to clarify. Very happy customer. I have had one pair of glasses tested by my Ophthalmologist and they came out dead on to my prescription.
I'll second this suggestion. I've had a pair for about a month and am very happy (and were around $45 to my door). Do a search on "wrap" on the website and see what they have - I just looked and the no longer have the ones I ordered, but do have some that are similar. Their selection is huge and seems to change quite a bit. I went this route to try out Zenni and because I won't feel to bad if I break or loose them (all due to the low price).

I did not get the polarized, just the tint. I already have a pair of polarized Ronstan Windshift glasses that wear with my contacts. My wife and I have lots of sunglasses, and right now the Ronstan are my favorites. Around $79, just got a pair for the wife, too. Currently, I wear them with my contacts, but I've been intouch with the owner of the place I'm linking below and he has a great price to swap out the Ronstan lenses for Rx, and they would be the same polarized ones as the originals, which are exellent: Single Vision Polycarbonate Polarized Lenses

I've also got a pair of Ocean Racing glasses, and eyeglasslensdirect said they can work with those, as well. Great glasses at less than $60.
