Sunglasses even I would wear at night

vazatak (small)

I love these sunglasses by Oliver Goldsmith. I know I was just talking about sunglasses the other day, but these are truly worth mentioning in their own right. They are limited editions and are the result of a collaboration between Oliver Goldsmith and Aseef Vaza. If both these names sound unfamiliar, well sit back and learn. OG is possibly one of the best luxury goods makers and also one of the most stylish makers of sunglasses. Vaza is a luxury leather goods designer and is notorious for creating limited edition products. This is their bastard child.

The Vazatak is made up of vintage acetate called Bengal Blue. Looking at those colors, the name seems appropriate. It looks like if someone wear to capture a space tiger, render their bones into acetate, and then make sunglasses out of them. I love it. The frames are designed after the TAK, which was originally designed back in 1969. To sweeten the deal, you get them with a beautiful VAZA-designed pouch made out of ostrich leather. These are glasses I would take almost anywhere. There is a limited amount of them and they usually retail for around $1500 to $1600.

Why not wayfare a bit?

The perfect shades for risky business.

The perfect shades for risky business.

When someone says Ray Ban, many people immediately think of the Aviators. I love aviator sunglasses, I always have and I always will. Lately though, aviators are starting to stand out to me as obvious signs of douchery. So, time to go back to another classic look, the Ray Ban wayfarers, guaranteed to make you look cool. Classic glasses from a classic franchise.

Audrey Hepburn wore them in Breakfast At Tiffany’s and Tom Cruise sported a pair in Risky Business, a reminder that these shades have definitely put their hours in. I like them because I have a bias for vintage wear and because they remind of old school Cadillac tail fins. They are perhaps some of the best pairs of sunglasses out there, equally at home in both formal and casual settings. I prefer the classic black, but Ray-Ban has been recently coming out with colored versions.

Sunglasses. Make an instant impact on your look.

The quickest upgrade to your overall look will always be sunglasses. They make you look like a movie star, hide your ugly mug, and prevent squinty eye syndrome. They look just as good with a suit as they do on the beach, and with summer approaching fast, there’s no better time to invest in a quality pair. We prefer aviators, but just get a pair that frames your face well. We prefer gold for the summer as it matches the whites and earth tone colors of summer better, but you can never go wrong with black or silver.

We like these elegant aviators as they aren’t too flashy with logos and brands slapped on the side of, but the trademark twist on the temple makes it unmistakably Yurman. Available in both silver and gold.

P.S.- Never wear them inside.  You’ll look like a douche. No excuses.
