Jeans and sunglasses are regular topics on Frachelli, but the Kickstarter project creating denim sunglasses is certainly new. English startup company Mosevic has created a unique style of shades by merging denim and resin. Available in three frame styles (and additionally three colors of denim), a pair from Mosevic is sure to stand out.
It’s a little late to order them for USA’s match in the World Cup tonight, but you can still be patriotic in time for the 4th of July with these American Flag Sunglasses. At only $12 for a 4-pack, you can get all ‘Merican with three of your friends in these red white and blue wayfarer style shades for under a Jackson – and unlike authentic Wayfarer’s, you won’t fret much if someone loses a pair during the independence day festivities.
If you’re looking for some unique shades, we found two new arrivals from Ray-Ban that fit the bill. Sure to out-hip the hippest of hipsters, the ever-popular Wayfarer sunglasses are now available in a leather finish for $300. If you’re feeling more Tony Montana, try the Aviator in Solid Gold. Made with 18k gold frames, they’ll set you back a whopping $3,200. Oh yeah, we never said these were cheap!
Now that we’ve implemented daylight savings and the weather is slowly starting to warm up – it’s time to start looking for some new shades. If you’re going to be on the move and need something portable, check out the Folding Wayfarer’s by Ray-Ban. They offer the same classic Wayfarer style but with three folding joints enabling you to reduce them to size of one lens. Shown above with bold orange frames and new “flash lenses” the Folding Wayfarer is also available in more traditional colors as well.
Original Ray-Ban Wayfarers are very cool, but if you’re trying to out-hipster the next guy, you may want to grab a pair of the limited edition Rare Print Patchwork Sunglasses. You can rock the plaid pattern all-over your shades or be a bit stealthier with versions that have the pattern on the inside of the frames. $160, $210 for Polarized.
Ray-Ban has successfully brought the Wayfarer back into style, and with men trying to channel the likes of Don Draper – other retro sunglasses are also making a big comeback. The Ray-Ban Clubmaster sunglasses line came out in the 80′s and are based on the popular 50-60′s browline style of eyewear (as seen on Colonel Sanders and Malcolm X). Proven to be timeless, a pair of Clubmaster sunglasses will greatly compliment your skinny tie this fall.
We’ve said it before, we’re big fans of Ray-Bans. We’ve also previously mentioned that we love Wayfarers, but sometimes you need to mix it up. The Ray-Ban 4147 is a slick pair of large and modern shades that still maintain the spirit of the Wayfarer. Lightweight and designed with comfort in mind, these polarized sunglasses will keep you feeling and looking cool this summer.
If you’re drinking some suds in the sun, you can kill two birds with one stone by wearing a pair of JackHawk 9000 Bottle Opening Sunglasses. Currently a Kickstarter project raising money for tooling and manufacturing costs, these polarized wayfarer-style shades are made with lightweight titanium – enabling them to be wearable yet, strong enough to open a beer bottle without damaging the glasses. These cool and innovative sunglasses are planned to hit the market for $90 and thanks to LiftLuxe for the tip on this cool project.
