Sunglasses while in uniform

Me and some buddies were arguing about the current regulation about wearing sunglasses while in uniform.

AR 670-1 (03 FEB 2005) Ch. 1-15 section 3 says that "Eyeglasses or sunglasses that are trendy, or have lenses or frames with intitials, designs, or other adornments are not authorize for wear. Soldiers may not wear lenses with extreme or trendy colors, which include but are not limited to, red, yellow, blue, purple, bright green or orange. Lens colors must be traditional gray, brown, or dark green shades. Personnel will not wear lenses or frames that are so large or small that they detract from the appearance of the uniform..."

So if I am reading this right, as long as the lens colors are gray, brown, or dark green; and the frames are plain with no designs or logos, soldiers can wear whatever they want? So I would be able to wear a pair of silver (or any color) sunglasses while in uniform as long as the lenses are gray, brown, or dark green?

Thanks,
