A pretty simple solution to an issue that’s vexed ‘cool dudes’ since the first hair styling gel was invented.
All those who’ve had a precious pair of sunglasses take a tumble onto an unforgiving concrete floor, can we have a show of hands, please? Okay, you can keep your hands down now and listen up - Oakley say they have this issue licked.
You see, their designers have come up with a rather simple solution - a little latch (duh!) that keeps your new ‘shades’ secure on your shirt while you sit around chugging beer in a pub. Okay, it’s actually meant for urban activity freaks - the sort of people who think a spot of parkour (or skateboarding) is just what you need to drive away the workday blues. But hey, it’ll even work for us sedentary types - whether you actually go around with a skateboard under your arm, or are more like us (and prefer to get all your urban activity in front of a console or by lifting a pint o’ microbrew), the Oakley Latch (₹6990) should stay put in your pocket no matter how much you're jumping around.
Oh, and there’s another reason why you might like the Latch - the boost to your street cred amongst your more clued-in mates once you point out your new shades have been inspired by skate legends Eric Koston, Sean Malto and Curren Caples, along with photographer Atiba Jefferson.
