Tumi Traverso EyewearBy Jeffrey Hyatt
Have you picked out your sunglasses for summer? Because that’s important. If you’re still on the fence about what you need to look good and protect yourself, this trio of stylish sunglasses from Tumi might do the trick. Billed as the Traverso Eyewear Collection ($235-$245), Tumi blends design with technology without losing an inch of style.
For its debut line of eyewear, each Traverso design is engineered for performance, fit and function, and features the exclusive Tumi ZR3™ Zeiss CR-39 Polarized lenses that repel particles and resist abrasion. The three distinct models — the Brooklyn, Severn, and Wayfarer-like Coronado — features a hand-polished acetate front and lightweight stainless steel temples.
The modern design of the glasses is crafted from stainless steel or lightweight aluminum. Every style features Tumi ZR3 lenses, an exclusive lens created by the innovative Carl Zeiss and team which feature polarization and are also scratch and weather resistant.
The acetate temple tips are inset with leather for a comfortable fit. A ballistic nylon case folds flat and is ideal for everyday use. Because when you pay big bucks for sunglasses you want to be wearing those frames daily. You might not think of Tumi and sunglasses together, but their debut collection is a winner. [via uncrate]
