Troakley.com | Here Are 2 Sunglass Companies That Are On A Mission
It isn’t enough these days to just be a pair if ordinary sunglasses or even highly stylish sunglasses. Now, your sunglasses should have a sense of purpose. With spring bearing down hard and summer not far away, choosing the right pair of sunglasses can be a critical style decision and one that can soothe your soul as well.
These are two very different types of sunglasses, each with a purposeful mission. Fatheadz Eyewear is designed for the big guy that can’t just grab a pair of sunglasses off the rack at the drug store and Costa Sunglasses are out to save the sharks among other things.
If you’ve ever known a big guy (full disclosure I’m married to someone who is 6’5”) buying sunglasses is a nightmare. You know the joke. “You know what it means if I have big hands and big feet? Big gloves and big shoes!” Well, it also means big sunglasses. A big guy looks ridiculous wearing normal sized sunglasses. They look like suntanning booth shades. Tiny glasses on a big head.
The company was started back in 2004 by Rico Elmore with four sunglasses in various colors. He now has over 100 different styles. Fatheadz’s are made in America and can be bought at Wal-Mart and through Amazon. You can also get them with prescription lenses. My husband bought a pair of regular prescription eyeglasses at Wal-Mart and was more than thrilled when he came across these frames and it was a game changer for him.
Fatheadz is also giving back to Veterans. For every pair of sunglasses that they sell online a portion of the profit is donated to Folds of Honor. This group provides scholarships to the children of fallen and disabled soldiers. A big deal for the big guys.
