Ray Ban Clubmaster

Ray Ban Clubmaster

The longest day of the year was over a month ago and the city's starting to fill up again. Yes, summer's past the halfway point, and it's time to take advantage of the temperature and Friday hours. What better way to celebrate the remains of the day than a brand new old pair of sunglasses? A classic shade is the only way to go nowadays, but oversize grandma tortoiseshells are played out, and we all know vintage Ray Ban Wayfarers are, like, so beginning-of-summer. Late summer is all about vintage Ray Ban Clubmasters; a subtle hint of color, a chilled out Sean-Penn-in-Fast-Times vibe, the hip-to-be-square confidence that comes with rocking the same eyewear as Kevin Costner in "JFK", and a pedigree that guarantees the shades will survive until next June - not that you'll be wearing the same old thing again, of course.
