How many boxes have you checked off as of yet in your never-ending search for the best gear for men? Especially gear that can help with warm weather style and adventure pursuits? If you still feel you’re missing a few of the best spring and summer style picks, well, I’m here to help. Let’s keep it simple by starting with your everyday carry, and notably, the best men’s sunglasses. After all, you’ve probably already shopped Huckberry — our featured retailer of choice today — for one of the best waxed jackets, and the most rugged boots. But you still need a pair of the best sunglasses for men, and that’s where the Sunksi Ventana are worthy of your consideration.
Like Huckberry, Sunski was founded in San Francisco, which gives them a unique eye (pun intended) towards gear that’s polished enough for the city, ready to be worn on the coast and durable enough to handle just about anything in between. Over the years, the results they’ve yielded have been pretty impressive — like the Sunksi Ventana, for instance. Let’s get one thing out of the way first: These stylish sunglasses are insanely affordable, retailing for just $58. The Sunksi Ventana only get better the closer you look, though.
They feature a square frame, the sort of timeless look between a pair of Aviators and a pair of Wayfarers, which gives them enough versatility to sit comfortably among the best sunglasses for men. The Sunksi Ventana also feature plenty of craftsmanship-focused touches not normally found in sunglasses that sell for under $60. Try polarized lenses, for starters, finished off with what the company calls a “scratch-proof thermal hardcoat for maximum durability.” Your average pair of shades, these are not. The Sunksi Ventana also double down on the style points, thanks to the rich caramel amber polycarbonate frames.
Stainless steel hinges add durability at that most crucial of stress points, turning the Sunksi Ventana into a pair of frames that look and feel much more expensive than they are. Because of the neutral nature of that square frame design, you could wear the Sunksi Ventana with everyone from the best lightweight jeans and a merino T-shirt, or else with your favorite spring blazer and off-white denim for a nice change of pace. Above all else, you should want to wear the Sunksi Ventana just about every single day this spring and summer, because they’re too well-made (and too affordable!) not to get the most out of them.
