Masunaga 064 White Frosted Sunglasses

The Masunaga model 064 is a classic P3 shape.  This shape has historically been used by designers in the usual blacks, browns, and various tortoise shell tones, but for 2018 clear frames are going to be a big trend.  That's why I'm excited about this clear color with a frosty, matte finish.  It makes for a powerful look that draws attention to your face and creates a nice contrast with the dark grey lenses.  Add this classic design to your collection for a fun summer set of shades that you will own and wear for years to come.   It was handmade in Japan by Masunaga, and curated with love at Hicks Brunson Eyewear just for you.  This style is...

Fort Greene by Born In Brooklyn Spectacle Company

A couple of months ago I wrote a blog about this sunglass called Fort Green by the Born In Brooklyn Spectacle Co.  I like this frame so much I felt compelled to feature it again, only in a different color this time.  The Fort Greene frame was named after a Brooklyn neighborhood which is lined with trees, and filled with hip bars and indie shops.  It is also home to the Brooklyn Academy of music.  Choose from three rich colors including the color I am wearing in the above picture, which is called Champagne-Dark Tortoise.  The champagne color on the front is a great neutral, and it pairs quite well with the dark tortoise temples.  Add the iconic silver hinge...

Bianca by Sama Eyewear and Transitions Lenses

Michelle loves her new Sama Bianca eyeglasses with Transitions lenses! Today's featured frame is a pair of sunnies called Bianca by Sama Eyewear. We decided to turn them into a truly unique look by making them up with Transitions lenses. This allows them to be worn indoors or out, and changes this trendy thin metal style into a killer fashion statement. Transitions lenses are super-convenient because they adjust to the light in your environment while keeping your eyes protected and you looking great. They also protect your eyes from harmful blue-light, which not only comes from direct sunlight, but most TVs, phones, and tablets. If you're looking for more eyewear fashion tips on pairing different kinds of lenses with different...

Punk Him 2 by Face A Face

Rock n' Roll!  This week I'm showcasing Punk Him 2 by Face A Face. These sunglasses, with their red plaid and silver studs,  have an edgy style and energy fit for Dicky Barrett of The Mighty Mighty Bosstones. Punk rock and ska all the way to the core, Punk Him 2 was created by actually layering plaid fabric in-between the front and back sections, made from zyl-acetate, giving the frame a depth and texture that just can't be matched with other techniques. While wearing the frame I noticed that it felt light and comfortable while still offering good coverage. The lens has a brown gradient tint with a backside anti-glare coating. I also felt like doing a stage-dive, but as...
