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. If I pay $18 for a pair, though, I won’t mind as much. Oak has several cheap pairs on their “New Arrivals” page to suit lots of tastes–check out the “Castro,” also $18!

These are some curious shades, aren’t they? Chronicles of Never’s round-frame sunglasses have a unique frame design that makes them seem as if they’ve been cut out from cardboard and painted black. Flat and with an unusual rectangular effect at the temples, these sunglasses will create a bespectacled, bookish look… even though yours are tinted and you’ll be in the sun, not in the library. Depending on the face and the setting, these could be really cool or really ugly.

In honor of the 50th anniversary of Harper Lee’s Pulitzer-Prize winning novel To Kill a Mockingbird and the Academy Award-winning performance by the legendary Gregory Peck as Atticus Finch, Oliver Peoples has debuted a very classic, very cool Gregory Peck frame.

Has anyone out there had their eyes zapped by Lasik, but now they miss the good ol’ days of wearing and choosing glasses? I used to dream of days when I would be glasses-free, but then I find myself looking and bookmarking all the good current eyewear collections for men and women, plus vintage. You can’t have enough vintage! Gant by Michael Bastien eyewear is here, and it’s complemented by all the Gant seasonal looks from the S/S 2011 collection. A little vintage inspiration and a lot of style made Michael Bastien’s collection a covetable addition for casual-clothes lovers and the desk jockey.

I’m fairly certain that my eyewear collection is going to get pretty unmanageable, but when you have a chance to buy Han Kjøbenhavn DOC Eyewear S/S 2011? Who cares. The new season’s sun specs are available in mega-dark tint, medium lenses, and clear as glass, so there’s no way that you can make excuses about DOC not having the right pair for you–unless you’re a fan of ambers or not a fan of bookish round frames, of course. Then again, why not take this opportunity as one to expand what’s currently filling our your eyewear collection? My seasonal jump was blue, octagonal, and vintage. Eep.

The classic, scholarly frames associated with the new Oliver Peoples Vintage collection are quite terrific. It was founder/creative director Larry Leight who decided to explore the archives of Oliver Peoples and rediscover these modern classics. Leight selected three, notable styles, and even called upon the original Japanese factory that first produced them to give the specs its original craftsmanship.

Two things to point out about the Louis Vuitton 4Motion Sunglasses: 1) the cool shades feature four adjustable points, which means the temples can be manually shortened or lengthened to fit individual face shape.

The hipsterdom fashion universe is a pastiche of things defined more or less by the level of irony they can convey. This means - like a ravenous, all-consuming blob - the hipster wolf-pack adopts certain items and inadvertently redefines them until they’ve lost most of their original meaning. Here’s a short list of things outlining exactly what we mean.
