Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger

Sticking with the Porsche theme and the not-so-timeless-design, Carrera Sunglasses have effortlessly stood the test of time... of being arrogant, dated and the epitome of the Brat Pack's antagonistic counterparts. Today's translation is less driving your white-on-white whale-tail to the country club while doing a line off your tennis racquet, and more Kanye West video. Most between the late 70s and mid 80s are a bit out of control for most classic tastes, but buried in the lines are a few pairs worth checking out.

And if you're in NYC, check out Silver Lining Opticians. They have a nice little collection of Carreras you might actually want to wear without your white linen suit.
