The Fourth Gentlemen
You cannot embark on a beach vacation without sunglasses. and decidedly one of the most fashion-forward sunnies brand is The Fourth Gentlemen. All of their sunglasses and watches are made from the highly sustainable bamboo. For those unfamiliar, bamboo is actually a grass, and one of the fastest growing materials. It’s also incredibly strong and mimics the look of wood.
My favorite of the sunglasses collection are the Komodo glasses. They are both chic and sophisticated and have a slightly vintage, 1960’s look to them. They are also polarized, rust resistant, provide 100% UVA and UVB protection, incredibly lightweight and the best feature of all – they float – so, you’ll never have to worry about losing sunglasses while in the water!
Beyond using environmentally friendly materials, TFG also donates a portion of each sale to a number of different foundations committed to helping our planet and all of its inhabitants.
So, chuck your cheap plastic sunglasses, and go with a “gentlemanly” pair.
Both pieces are extremely versatile, going from the plane to the beach, or a yoga studio to brunch. I’ve even mixed up the pieces and paired with other sustainable items from my closet, which is an easy way of reducing the number of items you pack.
