These butt-fugly and impractical sunnies will cost you a whopping $208. Officially described as the Jeremy Scott for Linda Farrow sunglasses on Amazon, the map-of-the-continental-USA sunglasses is already receiving rave reviews over at Amazon:
I was very excited about being able to wear the U.S.A. on my face! However, my left eye never seems to have any coverage. This really reduces the amount of sun protection I was hoping for, especially while driving. Now if I am the passenger they aren't half bad, since my right eye is closest to the window. Also there is no Hawaii and no Alaska, making this U.S.A. replica incomplete.
WARNING: There is NO Alaska OR Hawaii (not to mention ANY US territories) in these "USA" sunglasses. I am extremely dissatisfied that these important geopolitical regions were intentionally excluded from this product. At the very least Jeremy Scott could have situated Alaska and Hawaii on the sides of the glasses, or as add-ons so that Alaska and Hawaii can dangle off of the glasses by two delicate chains.
These glasses only come in a darker shade. In this day and age of diversity I would think they would have all shades of color. The fact that these glasses are dark could suggest some sort of racism as I see it. These United States were built on a melting pot. Black, white, yellow, Armenian... all the colors of the rainbow. And what is with the placement. Your left eye peaks out over the area where the Great Lakes would be. WTF?? Couldn't they have moved it up and over a bit so that your left eye is in Ohio/Kentucky and your right eye closer to Colorado. It's about balance. I drive a school bus of young children and need quality glass wear. How am I supposed to drive on sunny mornings if my left eye is hanging out all over the place. So much could be improved. And why not make a North America version? You could call them the NAFTA version. Then Canada could cover my forehead well and Mexico could protect my lips and neck from bad sun burns. Does anyone think when they design these things?? My brother is a pilot and flies the largest passenger planes and he swears by them but he too complains about his left eye. Sometimes while flying a planeload of people he is blinded when trying to land in late afternoons. I mean couldn't that cause an accident or something?
