Good afternoon homies. Today we are going to talk about the art (my art) of getting the right pair of sunglasses at the right price.

There are 5 steps in doing that.
1. Determine if you are going classic or going trendy. Or maybe you've seen someone somewhere and said I NEED THAT TOO.
2. Go to a shop, try it on to see if it looks good on you.
3. Have a look at the price tag.
4. Do a research on the internet to get a better price.
5. Make the purchase.

So let's start.
1. I am more of a vintage guy so I usually go for the metal framed sunglasses. This is easy because if you take a look at the different brands they all make Aviator sunglasses or something close to it. The most popular are the Ray-Bans with a good mix of quality and price.

If you decide you are going trendy you can have a look at what famous people wear these days and decide what's gonna look good on you. Let's face it you secretly love this shit too and want to look as good dickhead as the pop stars and actors out there.

Last but not least you are obsessed with something you saw and need a pair of THAT.
Google it and you shall find...

Brad Pitt's Oliver Peoples OP-523.

2. Go to the nearest shop depending on which brand you are going for.
Let's say you are going for a Wayfarer model. It was major trend last year so I said to myself I had to give it a try... To my despair I looked ridiculous and I decided to go for another model.

3. Is the price right for the specific model? Sometimes it is. For example brands like Carrera and Ray-Ban are in the range of 80-120 euros which is fair.
But if you want to treat yourself to a pair of Tom Ford's for example you have to pay over the odds. On top of that shops usually have outrageous prices for the Haute Couture brands because many idiots think its a must to own a pair.

440USD for this?!!!!

4. If you are at the shop get that pair of sunglasses you like and have a look at the serial number inside.

Type it on your mobile phone.
Then go home and google it. I bet you are going to find it at a better price.

5. Confirm that the website is legit and go ahead. Buy it.

one happy customer
