Forget dogs — sunglasses are a man’s best friend. From music festivals to days at the lake, your shades need to be reliable and stylish without draining your pocket. Good news for you: our sunglasses have you covered on all fronts. With a wide variety of shapes, materials, and lenses, we’ve made a list of the best sunglasses for men in 2016. If you’re looking for a place to start, you can also check out our face shape guide to find the best frames for your face. And if you have a beard… we have a guide for that, too.
The classiest of classy — retro square shades are never going out of style. If you’re looking for a new go-to pair, our Drifter shades are extremely popular, not to mention polarized. If you’re feeling adventurous, check out the Jackson with clear frames and mirrored lenses, or try bamboo temples on our Tonga sunglasses. With this shape, you really can’t go wrong.
Made famous in the 50s and 60s, these sunglasses are still one of our favorite styles today. For a classic look, try our Bluegrass browline shades. And for the less conventional — the Nebula browline shades are top-notch with mirrored lenses on a tortoise frame.
The wingman that won’t get too drunk, leave your side, and start hitting on all the wrong people. This classic frame shape looks good on most face shapes and no, you do not have to be Tom Cruise to sport them. Our Remington aviators keep it classic, while the Monterey shakes things up with a both metal and plastic frame.
We’ve seen this trend grow in the last year and it’s showing no signs of stopping. With all sorts of different materials, textures, and lenses, our round sunglasses are a solid choice, especially for those with a more square face shape. Although we’re a fan of all our shades, we’re recommending our Mars sunglasses — you won’t be mad.
With a wraparound style and a light frame, these sunglasses will keep up with whatever workout you have planned for the day. Put our Pipeline shades to the test — polarized lenses cut glare and keep you looking good.
