Five for the Road: Best Driving Sunglasses

Sunglasses are sunglasses, right? If you're serious about safe driving, the answer is a resounding no. You can't just slap on a pair of clearance carousel drugstore shades and expect a great behind-the-wheel experience; nor does spending $300 on top-of-the-line sunglasses necessarily get you the best sunglasses for the road. You'll want to spend less time looking in the rearview mirror to see if they match your hair and more time concentrating on negotiating that hairpin turn like you were related to Fangio. We offer up some of the best in our roundup.

Warby Parker x The Standard Sunglasses

The charitable and on-trend team at Warby Parker have partnered with The Standard hotel to create a limited edition pair of their Winston shades in a classic striped ale colorway. Blending 60s styling with a dose of modern confidence, they're a steal for $95, even if your days by the pool are still months away. Plus, they ship with a special orange lens cloth designed by artist Jeff Canham that we know you'll lose in a week. Like all Warby specs, purchasing this pair will also send a pair of optical glasses to someone in need. Look for them at The Standard hotels in the company’s new “Readery” kiosks (also developed in collaboration with Warby Parker) or purchase them directly online via the link below.

Style Pick: Persol Clip-On Collection

Need proof that the fashion world is cyclical? The fact that esteemed eyewear brand Persol reintroduced clip-ons last year is all the evidence you should need.

Yes, You Can Pull Them Off

Ray-Ban Clubmaster

Almost everyone has owned a pair of aviators (thank you 2001), and when they realized they were unoriginal, they then bought Ray-Ban Wayfarers (circa 2006). Now you can’t turn around without seeing some variation on the theme – colored rims, lenses, brands, etc. This summer we’ve found a remedy: the Ray-Ban Clubmaster ($145). The iconic...

Mosley Tribes Sunglasses

Just because the heat and glare of the summer sun are gone, doesn’t mean the sunglasses are too.
