As March 14th gets ever closer, you may be looking for a not-so-traditional gift to give your man on the male version of Valentine's Day. We won't get into the details of what that means, but you can always Google it yourself.
No matter how you are planning to celebrate the most romantic day in a man's life, might we suggest giving him the gift of protection – ultra-violet radiation protection that is.
From the shape of his face, to his overall style or lack thereof, when it comes to purchasing sunglasses for your man there are many factors to take into consideration.
In order to help I've put together this handy little checklist:
As I'm sure since you already know your man's face shape, all you need to know when selecting men's sunglasses is that the general rule is to make sure the frames are not wider than the widest part of the face. Just in case you need a little more help, in a previous post I put together a list to help guys pick out a pair of sunglasses for themselves based on their face shape.
Whether your man has style, or could use a helping hand, picking a pair of sunglasses that suits his individual style is essential. Not only do you want him to look good in his new sunglasses, but you also want to pick a design that he feels comfortable wearing. Since there are many designs to choose from this can be a little challenging. Determining what designs work well with your man's face shape will help you to narrow down the list, but in order to pick the perfect pair you will have to go with your fashion instinct. Will he actually like the new design you are getting for him, or should you stick with the classics? These are just a few of the questions you should ask yourself.
The price of sunglasses will really determine how creative you can get with trying out, or updating your man's style. The risk may be too great with a designer brand, but with inexpensive sunglasses you can afford to purchase multiple pairs. Deciding on how much you are going to spend on sunglasses is of course a personal choice, but if your man is the type of guy who drops, loses, scratches, sits on, or damages his sunglasses in some other way, you might want to rethink opting for the designer brands.
Last but not least, and I can't stress this enough, always opt for protection. No one truly knows where that sun has been, right? So when looking for a pair of sunglasses for your man make sure they are labeled for 100% UVA/UVB protection. After all, if we don't help to protect their eyes, how are they going to be able to see how great we look?
