The ManMade Guide to Sunglasses: 5 Stylish Pairs Under $100

created at: 04/03/2012

In case your A/C bill hasn't told you yet, it's summer time. Well, at least in the Northern Hemisphere. And summer is the season of sunscreen and short sleeves and socks as little as possible, and...to wear sunglasses. Unfortunately, many men consider sunglasses to be more fashion accessories, and therefore optional, or even frivolous. But there are actually several health benefits to wearing sunglasses, particularly polarized lenses, when spending a day outside: they protect your eyes from harmful UV rays and blue light, as well as protecting the skin around your eyes and preventing wrinkles and "crow's feet." Furthermore, they allow you to see better when outside, helping you to better operate a car, motorcycle, bicycle, boat, lawnmower, backhoe, grill, etc.

So, we at ManMade think they're an essential, and while we're advocates for stepping up from the $3.99 pair from the gas station, we don't think you've got to drop a whole week's worth of pay, either. So - five classic, masculine pairs of sunglasses, all under $100. Enjoy the sunshine!

How To: Make Edible Shot Glasses

Originaly, the "shot glass" was a measuring device - a means to figure out a 1.5 oz. serving of a spirit. Nowadays, it's been reduced to a cheesy collectible, or worse, a tacky means of throwing down liquor way faster than necessary.

But that's not the shot glass's fault. Sipping 1.5 oz of a single spirit is a great way to learn about its flavor, aroma, and complexities. Especially if the glass contributes to the experience. So, bring back the shot glass. And, while you're at it, why not make it edible?

De-3D Glasses

 

I just thought back, and I'm blown away by home many 3D movies I've seen over the last 18 monthes. Granted, most of them were animated features that I saw at the dollar theatre, and all of them were because 3D was the only way I could see them at all. Since the trend doesn't seem like it's dying anytime soon, it's likely time that someone came up with a solution to de-3D 3D projections so that they appear just like normal films.

ThinkGeek has done just that.
