SUMMER STOCK-UP #2: SUNGLASSES
Grabbed your “summer clothes” bin out of the back of your closet only to find a bunch of neatly-folded letdowns? You’re in luck: we’re introducing a new feature for the warm-weather months, aptly named “Summer Stock-Up”. In each post you’ll find five variations on a summer essential—perfect for refreshing your closet (and avoiding future disappointments).
Steven Allen’s Dayer Sunglasses
The retro pick—perfect for lazing around Italy, perfecting your “bicoastal” lifestyle, or just garnering street cred at flea markets. This is the pair to make you look like a guy with something to say (pro-tip: just make sure you actually do, y’know, have something to say). Get them here.

Paul Smith’s Tortoise Shell Polarized Sunglasses
Like the fashion choices in one of those future-as-past sci-fi movies, these are the perfect marriage of vintage charm and modern flourishes. These appear at first glance to be the most “traditional” pick on our list. But closer inspection reveals the fresh, contemporary metal contrast arms and polarized lenses—and trust us, people are going to want closer inspection. Get them here.
Illesteva’s Lou Reed Aviators
Ape the king of Aviator-clad cool with these collabs. One of his final projects before his passing, these shades were designed by Reed to capture an aesthetic so inseparable from the man himself. We’d say he’s been immortalized in these Italian-made beauties, but all his fans know he was never mere mortal to begin with. Get themhere.
Han Kjobenhavn’s Wolfgang Sunglasses
This one will come as no surprise– where better then Copenhagen to find obscenely stylish shades? The wild arms (a tongue-in-cheek take on classic tortoise motifs) are what really separate these from the pack—but the straight-on view is subtle enough for everyday wear. Get them here.
SUPER’s Primo Aviators
Not afraid of a little color? Good for you. Balance out these irreverent green lenses with a classic, streamlined aviator shape for a “you’ve-seen-it-but-not-like-this” feel. Italian construction and German lenses lend an upscale air. Not unlike yourself. Get them here.
