It’s Always Sunny

By The Editors

Gents, August draws nigh.

So too the promise of squeezing every ounce of sun from the dog days we have left.

Business lunches on patios. Happy hours on rooftops. BBQs in beer gardens.

You’re gonna need sunglasses. Look no further than Ellison Sunglasses, a new eye candy purveyor based right here in Chicago, just launched and shipping now.

Why you want these: they’re handmade in Greece from primo Italian acetate. They’ve got stainless steel hinges and Carl Zeiss Vision lenses.

What that means? Quality. They look damn nice, too.

Sixteen styles in all, available in different colors. Mostly unisex, just steer clear of Brigitte, Mia and Sophia. Instead, you’ll wanna hit up Dean for the classic look; Prescott if you’re bold.

Or better yet, go thermic with the Martins.

They’re transition frames that turn from black to clear with the rising temperature.

Kind of like transition lenses, but with sex appeal.

That’s a promise.
