I’ve never been a sunglasses person. Not because I always lose them or break them, but they were just never anything I was willing to invest over $10 in. That is until last week.
While shopping my way down Smith Street in Brooklyn in order to beat the heat (the heat is a very good excuse to go shopping), a pair of sunglasses at Epaulet caught my eye: They were black, looked like a cross between cat-eye glasses and wayfarerers, and made by a company called Shuron out of South Carolina. But these frames predate Ray-Ban’s wayfarers. Ray-Ban started making wayfarers in 1952, Shuron has been around since 1865.
I had to know more.
