Shades of Cool: A Guide to the Best Winter Sunglasses for Men

We often think about (and shop for) stylish sunglasses when the sun is high in the sky during the warm spring and summer months. But there’s a catch: Your eyes still need protection from the sun, even when winter comes calling. Factor in a bright day with a ton of reflective snow, and you could be looking at more sunlight on a winter day than in the summer. And beside the eye protection-factor, your winter wardrobe could use some eye-catching accessories anyway, even if you’re bundled up to your neck.
