Wednesday, May 23, 2012 Sunglasses Review

Spring is here and so is the warm weather! Summer comes in June and so does Father's Day! What does that all equal...that sunglasses make a GREAT gift idea for any father this Father's Day!

And what better place to shop for them than, the planet’s biggest online eyewear company. Coastal empowers its customers to easily browse, try on and buy eyewear online—saving time, money and sanity. They have over 1,000 styles of frames on their site, and if you're a first time customer the first pair is free!

I received two great pairs of name brand sunglasses: Ray-Ban 3421 00471 and Oakley Grapevine Polished Black sunglasses from for my husband for Father's Day! Except I just couldn't wait until Father's Day to give them to him...and he was so glad I didn't!! :)

Whether you’re playing sports or lounging on a patio with the guys, the Ray-Ban 3421 00471 sunglasses will be your go-to look of the summer. The frame front is made of dark gunmetal and it’s paired with glossy black acetate temples for a cool, sleek look. They even offer adjustable nose pads to offer the perfect fit.

This Ray-Ban pair is my husband's favorite pair of sunglasses ever! He looks sleek, professional, and fashionable with them on (and quite handsome, if I do say so myself!) and they fit great! He likes to wear this in the car driving, outside lounging on the deck, and pretty much ANYWHERE! He definitely recommends these for all men!

The Oakley Grapevine Polished Black sunglasses offer strength with a sporty vibe. The comfortable fitting design is solid and lightweight and the lenses curve on a wide angle to provide better peripheral vision. The black gradient lenses offer 100% UV protection while optimizing impact resistance.

Here's the problem with these Oakley's - we think they are more aimed for women. They didn't say anywhere on the site if they are men's or women's and from the picture alone you couldn't quite tell. However, once my husband put them on, he started to look like a celebrity....woman. These glasses have the over sized frames you see on many celebrity women and they sat higher on his face. He was really sad once I started making fun of him because he loved the way they fit and felt! They were really comfortable to wear and he loved to wear them while riding on his motorcycle because they stayed on and fit great! Now he wishes the site would have said whether they were women's or men's so he wouldn't have gotten made fun of at work! :) However, he definitely recommends them for women! :)

Overall, I loved the selection of sunglasses for men from They offer great, name brand sunglasses for a great price and they would make a great gift idea for any father this Father's Day...especially with summer right around the corner!
