Gents, I’ll make this quick. It’s important to look all business when you’re dressed for the office or an important event. Don’t go all professional below the neck yet wear a pair of Oakley sunglasses to shield your eyes from harmful rays. Save those for when you’re actually being active.

Instead, opt for a pair of classic sunglasses such as the aviators. Nothing fancy or flashy needed, just your standard style, metal-framed shades with dark lenses. Reflective, you ask? No. You’re a California Highway Patrol officer? Well, okay, I’ll let it slide this time. But I’m warning you buddy, don’t you dare let me catch you round these here parts again.


Anyway, when the occasion calls for a little effort, leave the sporty shades at home. Instead, opt for a classic silhouette such as the aviator, the Wayfarer… anything but the Oakleys, please.
