Top 5 Men’s Sunglasses for Spring/Summer 2016 from Specs New York
So it looks like we may finally be out of the woods with the crazy weather, so with the sun shining bright and the outdoors becoming the place to be, you're going to need a great pair of sunglasses. Here's the thing, it's way more than just a incognito way to people watch and look cool in your latest look. Prolonged eye exposure to direct sunlight can be damaging, so getting good protective yet stylish eye wear is a must gents.
Our friends at Specs New York let me go through their expansive stock to select 5 shades that I recommend for the stylish gent this spring & summer.
Brand : Celine | Style : CL41808S | Color : J5G9R | Price : $415
An update on the aviator, this over-sized pair from Celine brings about that 80's vibe. A clean gold frame with a rose tinted lense can accompany your freshest day party look or stepping out to run quick errands. This pair is for the gentleman that's looking to always keep the style factor on a hundred. Don't be surprised when you wear these if everyone is asking where you got them...tell them Specs New York !
Brand : Ray Ban | Style : RB3447 | Color : 112/22 | Price : $175
The circular shades kind of snuck back up on us and with all these vintage vibes flowing through fashion lately, we really shouldn't be surprised. Metallic lensed circular frames bring to mind that Mickey Knox gangster vibe but you can certainly interpret them in a much calmer way. Even though this a "high-wattage" frame, you can wear these every day and to everything with exception to maybe a really conservative work place. Also, be sure to keep them in the case when not on your face, nothing worse than a scratch on your mirror lenses.
Brand : Persol | Style : PO0714 | Color : 204/31 | Price : $300
I'm all about a cool pair of shades that has those little hidden things that make you hype every time you wear them. This yellow pair from Persol actually folds in half. You can slip them in your shirt pocket when you head in to the office or in the pocket of your favorite chambray shirt for those weekend brunches. Now I realize that yellow will not work on every skin tone, but a colored frame is a great way to inject some life into your look for the warm months.
Brand : Dolce & Gabbana | Style : DG2146 | Color : 117987 | Price : $290
Ok, so I hear you, Bruh, I just want a good pair of basic shades, what do you have for me? These Dolce & Gabbana shades are black, that's as basic as they get though. These shades are covered in rubber with a steel core for strength & durability. As you can see on our model Brandon, there's an instant cool about these pilot shades, so whether you're deck lounging or washing the car they will serve you well.
Brand : Dior | Style : Dior 02005 | Color : EN01E | Price : $390
This Dior pair might have emerged as my favorite from the feature. I'm all about a classic with modernized details like this. An army green face with black arms and metallic detailing. These are for the guy that likes to chill, but not blend in. You know when you head out and you know you're THE freshest guy in the place but you let everybody else say it, yeah, that guy...these are the sunglasses you need to have.
You can find all of these sunglasses at the Westfield Montgomery location of Specs New York, located in Montgomery Mall in Bethesda, Maryland. If you're not in the DC/Metro Area, visit Specs New York's website to find a location near you.
