With the bright summer finally here, we channeled our best McQueen to bring you our favorite sun-blocking essentials.

Dharma Eyewear Co.'s classic shades are designed with versatility in mind. Keep them on daily standby, or add them to your rotation of other pairs. To keep ‘em safe and sound, we’ve matched them with a Line of Trade's made in the USA leather case that’s every bit as sharp. You’ll be just as proud of it as you are of the sunglasses inside.

Polarized Sunglasses, Dharma Eyewear Co.

The squared take on a classic, wear-with-anything wayfarer shape means that these sun-fighting heavy hitters suit most any face. They’ll complement your chambray shirt and faded denim just as easily as a cotton suit. The construction is solid as a rock thanks to high-grade acetate and ion-plated metal, and pack shatter-proof, anti-scratch, UV-protecting, polarized lenses (the mark of a quality pair).

Dimensions of sunglasses are: 54mm-17mm-145mm. 54 refers to the width of each 'lens cutout', 17 refers to the bridge width, 145 refers to the temple (arm) width

Custom Leather Case, Line of Trade

This pulls out all the stops to easily surpass anything that came with your last pair. Your new shades (or any others you want to protect) fit snugly inside for protection against scratched lenses and bent frames. The leather was custom made in the U.S.A. by S.B. Foot Tanning Co., the same guys behind tough-as-nails Red Wing boots. It's got a full and natural grain that’s dyed with durable color and then oiled to a perfect texture. When you pull up on the surface, the leather gets lighter in that area as a result of the oils migrating. It's the look of well-crafted stuff, so get ready for compliments once it comes out of your bag.


We’ve also packed in some extras to help fight the sun. A microfiber pouch will keep your shades clean and those lenses looking crystal clear. And Waterman's SPF lip balm keeps your lips sunburn-free all summer long.

Bring on the sun.
