A_old_macdonald_sunglasses_03-horz
Our usual Oak browsing resulted in a nice cheap-o pair of sunglasses for the man who wrecks everything. I have a couple pairs of sunglasses with sprung pins, but my problem is more with leaving glasses in my bag with my keys and all the extra stuff... and then finding my sunglasses have been scratched or damaged.

Here's a short list of things outlining exactly what we mean.
