Gentlemen, Antonio here.
Today, we're going to talk about sunglasses.
Specifically, I'm going to help you find theperfect pair for you.
What I don't want to have happen is you goout there and you buy an expensive pair of sunglasses and you never wear them.
Guys, that's the worst thing that can happen.
In today's video, I'm going to give you threetips general tips about buying sunglasses.
Then I'm going to get ultra-specific.
I'm going to give you talk about six faceshapes and five styles and which styles to avoid with the face shapes, and which onesare pretty good.
Then I'm going to get into a little bit more.
But guys, go check out the free e-book.
I've got it for you right here.
In that free e-book, I cover a lot more.
I talk about frame types, frame materials, lens types, lens materials all of that, I get into right in here.
I'm not going to be able to cover all of thatin today's quick video, but again, it's covered right here in this free e-book which you cangrab.
All right, guys.
Let's get into tip number one: confidence.
You have to be confident in whatever you areputting on your face.
Make sure those sunglasses just make you feelgreat.
The best way to do that go into a store inperson, try them on, look in the mirror, and say “Do I like this?” Go with your gut instinct, guys.
This is going to point you usually in theright path.
Sunglasses are all about confidence.
It's all about feeling great in them and beingable to carry yourself.
If you don't have that, guys, nothing elseis going to matter.
I can tell you, you can have the right sunglassesfor the right face shape, and it's not going to matter if you're not confident in thoseglasses.
Tip number two is to buy the best pair thatyou can comfortable afford.
I know a lot of you guys like to save moneyand get the three for $20.
The problem with that is that you treat themlike really cheap sunglasses.
You don't buy a case.
You throw them around.
You're like “Ah, they're just cheapos.
” You mistreat them.
They break down.
You just don't care for them.
They never feel great, because if you lookat the selection, oftentimes, they're made more poorly, and they're just not as gooda quality.
The lens are definitely not very good quality.
When you spend good money sometimes a littlebit more than what you're comfortable spending usually going to be the most expensive glassesyou've ever bought.
You put them on, and you feel great.
You look great.
Guess what, guys? You start to take care of those sunglasses.
You buy them a case.
You actually don't throw them around.
You clean them not with your shirt but withactually a special cloth.
They're actually made of a higher-qualitymaterial, so they start to last longer.
I can tell you, I've got glasses that areeight years old.
Before that, I had the el cheapos.
Those el cheapos, I treated like that.
They broke within usually a few days if nota couple months.
But I can tell you, because I now treat thesebetter, and I feel better every time I wear them, I get compliments.
Because I feel confident in those glasses, and because I treat them well, they have lasted a long time.
Guys, don't be afraid to spend a little bitmore.
You're going to feel better every time youwear them.
Tip number three is to experiment with a varietyof styles.
Men, we are creatures of habit.
We find something that works for us, and westay with it.
You possibly have been wearing the same stylefor 10, 20, maybe 30 years.
If that is the case, guys, consider changingit up.
But I'm not talking about changing going toa wild side.
Maybe you like aviators.
Maybe you like wayfarers.
All of a sudden, you start going with maybea variation in the color.
You start changing up the tint of the lens.
You may be going with something.
But stick with something classic.
If you like wayfarers, you try aviators.
The point is, guys, is experiment.
Get outside your comfort zone.
Because glasses are worn right here on theface and they're worn during the summer, they are very much a style accessory.
You can change it up.
It can really change your overall look.
I do recommend each man maybe have one, twoextra pairs out there.
Some of you guys probably have ten pairs ofsunglasses.
Now, let's talk about sunglass styles, andlet's talk about the face shapes that they complement and they don't complement.
I summarize all of this in a chart.
You can go check it out right over here.
This chart's going to go into a lot more detailthan I'm going to quickly cover here.
But right now, let's start off with one ofthe most classic in men's styles out there: aviators.
I can tell you, I'm starting with aviatorsbecause they work with pretty much every face shape out there.
If you've got a round face, if you have asquare face, if you have a rectangle face, if you have a heart-shaped face, it is mostlikely aviators are going to work.
What you want to be careful of with aviators, though, is that there are variations.
There are thicknesses of the frames that willchange.
If you're going to go with square-shaped aviators, be careful.
Go back to that first rule.
All of a sudden, if you have a square-shapedface, you probably don't want to go with square-shaped aviators.
You want to maybe look at something that'smore teardrop.
Now, teardrop, you want to be careful if youhave a round-shaped face.
But overall, you go with a classic pair ofaviators.
They're going to do a great job for protection, and there's a reason why they're classic.
They've been around for a long time, and theywork for a wide variety of men.
Now, let's go to wayfarers.
Wayfarers, by just basically the way they'rebuilt up, they are going to be more square.
The one face shape that needs to be reallycareful here are going to be square-faced men.
If you have a square face, be careful of wayfarers.
I'm not saying you can't pull it off, butit's going to be much harder than if you have let's say a round-shaped face or an oval-shapedface.
The key if you've got an oval- or a rectangle-shapedface is to make sure the wayfarers are not too wide.
Now, let's talk about round frames.
In general, not one of my favorites, but Iknow a lot of people like it.
It can work to soften the edges, especiallyif you have a square face shape.
If you perhaps had a head that is going tobe shaped like a diamond or if you have a rectangle.
In those cases, then definitely round-shapedlenses can help.
Again, size is going to be very important.
Next, let's talk about the club master.
Club master is where we have half of a frame.
Usually, up here at the top, you're goingto see a heavier frame.
Now, club masters are going to work out reallywell if you've got a round-shaped face, or if you actually have one that is going tobe a little bit thinner.
They can actually help again.
But you don't want to go too far out, otherwise, it's going to draw too much attention to the glasses, and it's going to make them looka bit odd.
In addition, it's also going to work wellwith a triangle- and a heart-shaped face as well.
The final style I want to cover here is goingto be the wraparound.
Made very popular nowadays with sports andall types of sunglasses like that.
I'm going to say pretty much they work withany face shape because of the function.
That's the first thing you need to focus onwith sunglasses is making sure that you're wearing them for the right function.
These are mostly going to be sport-oriented.
The key here it to get the right size.
If you have a really narrow head, you don'twant something that's really going to be out there and wrapping around.
That's just going to look odd.
Make sure that you bring it into the rightsize.
I would say if any face shape needs to becareful of the wraparound, it's actually going to be the rounded face.
Sometimes, it can just look a little bit odd.
I alluded to it in the last section, but let'stalk about glasses size.
If you look on the inside of the arm of apair of sunglasses or sometimes prescription glasses as well, you usually see three sizes, especially if it's a higher-quality sunglass.
What we're going to see is the first sizeis actually going to be the lens width.
Then the second size is going to be the bridgewidth.
The last one is going to be the length ofthe actual arm right there of the sunglasses.
Why does this matter? Well, it doesn't matter if you have a regular, normal-sized head, which about half the population does.
You'll be able to pull off whatever most likelythe company is putting out.
But if you have a smaller head, if you havea larger head, which is going to be the other half of the population, all of a sudden, youwant to have something that is going to be proportional to the size of your head.
Guys, that's why getting back to point numberone about confidence, it's so important that you try them on and you get a gut reactionthat they're too big, a gut reaction that they're too small.
If that's the case, then look to size up.
That's when you would actually want to searchonline.
Oftentimes, specialty retailers will actuallygive you one size but a little bit larger overall proportionally.
It's just going to look so much better.
In addition, it's going to be more comfortable.
Guys, I've covered a lot in this video, butlike I said, I cover a lot more in the e-book.
In the e-book, I talk about all differenttypes of frames, talk about full frames, half frames, no frames.
I talk about frame materials.
We go into each of the lenses, too.
We talk about coverings and coatings.
We talk about lens colors and why they matter.
Guys, a lot more in the e-book.
It's free right here for you.
Again, I would love to hear from you guysdown in the comments.
What is your favorite style? What is your favorite type of sunglasses? What did I miss? What would you like to see? Guys, take care.
I'll see you in the next video.
