Summer is approaching soon, before you know it will be time for suns out guns out. It is important to protect your eyes and be sporting a stylish pair of shades at the same time. Here are my top 5 picks in men’s sunglasses from the 2016 Vision Expo East.
Parkman Sunglasses are handcrafted sunglasses created by two brothers from New Jersey. Now they have limited edition inlay options using repurposed materials including spent grain, denim, magazine, coffee and even money! Definitely check out this line, I highly recommend the Bombay Vinyl Record Silver Flash.
Kaenon, an eyewear company started by two brothers from Newport Beach California, created proprietary polarized SR-91 lenses with California designed frame styles. Kaenon’s proprietary SR-91® lens is the only lens material that offers 100% broad spectrum UV protection and combines the superior optical quality of the finest glass and the lightweight, strength and impact resistance of polycarbonate.
If you want an impact resistance lens that can keep up with you and your lifestyle check out Kaenon. The Bolsa Tobacco Denim and Burnet special sauce with polarized lenses are two of my favorite styles.
Do you have a large sized head? Do you have a hard time finding sunglasses that fit? Check out Fatheadz Eyewear, they are made of 100% polycarbonate materials and have similar styles to Oakley or Costa.
Tifosi are high quality sports optic sunglasses perfect for cycling, running, golf, tennis and baseball. One of their newest styles, the Tifosi Pro, is one set with frame interchange technology, so you’ll always have the right piece of eye equipment. Tifosi Optics sunglasses also have decentered shatterproof polycarbonate lenses.
Global Vision has a large selection of sunglasses, goggles and safety glasses. One of my favorite styles is the unbreakable motorcycle sunglass. You can even watch videos on YouTube of people running over safety goggles with a forklift and shooting a gun at sunglasses. Global Vision Eyewear can hold up under the toughest conditions and you can score a pair for around $20 or less!
