There’s really nothing like a fine pair of sunglasses. Not only do they protect your eyes and often look great, but they tend to define your look from the head down, framing your face and really pulling your outfit together. In fact, you could have a bad sense of style, but with a great pair of sunglasses that mismatched, clashing look will just look purposeful and maybe even stylish. And that’s the kind of magic the Commonwealth x Native Sons “John Q” sunglasses can do when you slip them on.
These two brands teamed up to do their own modern take on the classic frame that was popularized in the 1950s. There is a plant based cellulose acetate top along with dark blue lenses that offer the ultimate ultra-violet protection. The marks on the side temples have 16 karat gold plating and all the other accents and details are hand crafted, meaning these sunglasses will literally last a lifetime before wearing out. Each pair comes with a Native Sons leather case and when you examine the fine craftsmanship, you’ll be even more confident in their durability over time when you find out they were made in Japan.
If you’re looking to make a fashion statement, the John Q’s are a great place to start.
