The Shady Series, Part I: An IntroductionAlthough  many people think of sunglasses only as a summer accessory, they’re  actually important year-round. You should wear them in the fall  whenever it’s clear and sunny, and in the winter when glare is  reflected off of the snow. In both cases, proper sunglasses will provide  important protection for your eyes.Thus, a good friend of mine, Agyesh Madan, and I thought we’d publish a special five-part series on sunglasses. Together, we’ll discuss how to determine quality and what models you  should consider. We’ll also cover how you can choose an appropriate pair  of frames, as well as how to maintain your  glasses once you get them. Like The Necktie Series,  I hope these posts will be a resource for those who want to know  how things are constructed, how to make the best purchases, and how to  take care of their items. Sunglasses are often neglected by menswear  writers, and we hope to fill that void. Come back tomorrow for part two  of this series, where we’ll talk about how to determine quality in a  pair of sunglasses. It should be a great series!
