Men’s Coats – The Finishing Touch

Finishing Touches

Men’s coats come in many sizes, shapes and colours. There are short casual bombers or tailored metro-sexual men’s coats; there are mid-length leather jackets that ooze confidence and success; there is the men’s long dress coat and then a variety of sport specific rainbow coloured jackets that no fashion conscious sportsman would be without. Whether you are bombing down the ski hill on your snowboard or on your way to the board room the right coat men’s coat can finish your look and give you the confidence to be your best on either.

Be Prepared

Ideally, purchase two men’s coats. All-weather trench coats work well with suits for mild rainy weather and a full-length winter coat for cold snowy days. While you will find double and single-breasted styles, the fashion right now is for single. Choose what suits your body type best. Not sure? Ask for professional help; ask a significant other or informative sales clerk to help you to find the perfect men’s coat that works best for you and your wardrobe.

The Fall Trench Coat

A man’s fall trench coat should be made of good weatherproof cotton canvas. It may have a belted waist and button front or may resemble the Austrian outback coat and drape from the shoulder. Again make a choice that is flattering for you. For less frequent cleaning choose dark colours such as blue, black, brown or green.

A Winter Dress Coat

A winter dress coat should be made of wool or down and the longer the coat, usually the more formal it is. Choose a dark colour that compliments your wardrobe and your colouring. Coats in dark shades of blue, grey and black are good for cool skin tones and those who have a warmer skin tone, or naturally red hair can wear beige, dark green and brown. To make a statement, make an investment in a soft cashmere winter warmer men’s coat.

Fur Coats

Men’s fur coats may have once been a statement of wealth and power. Now wearing the skin of an animal makes a statement of ignorance and lack of care for the environment. Fur may have once been a necessity, now it is a potentially dangerous frivolity. Protestors and PETA activists single out those wearing fur coats and attack them with slander and spray paint. Stick to wool, no one had to die for it and you will not risk being politically incorrect.

The Right Jacket for the Right Occasion

Another fashion faux pas’ includes trying to wear a parka, hoodie or jean jacket with a suit. No matter what you have seen on the cover of a magazine this is not an appropriate choice to cover a tailored suit.

Find your style

Find your style, your colours and show your personality in your outerwear. For much of the year your coat is really the first impression that you offer when you walk into a room. Orchestrate that impression and buy the best that you can afford.

Lovers Dance

Here I sit in silent wonder searching beyond the veil of consciousness driven by Divine discontent. Yes, only in the peace of stillness can the source of all knowledge, love and wisdom be found in the collective unconscious or universal mind. The sweetest music in the universe is when lovers dance to the tune of the one vibration. However so many in this period of history, fail to learn how to dance correctly in order to create the most beautiful inspirational harmony. This leads us to the realization, that the main purpose of relationship is spiritual growth. Correct relationship with another is only possible when first you have attained this within yourself.

The world reflects back to you, your own energy state. Therefore in the beginning of your conscious journey in life you need to become aware of your own unique energy state or frequency. The easiest way to work this out is to look at what is reflected back from a partner with what you can exchange energy with love and caring. Unfortunately it is not possible to learn very much from someone for what you care very little about.

So now this leads us into a good story because I like you enjoy a good story. The greatest joy in this world is a person who feels that he has been truly, completely and totally divinely blessed. However Daniel did not feel this way as he sat on the beach early one fine morning watching the sun rise. The sun rose from out of the East pushing back the darkness. This is the beginning of another day completing another cycle of rebirth.

Daniel sat there watching the sun's rays first stream out from the horizon over the ocean; followed by the illumination of the tops of the clouds and then the tops of the trees on the headland. It is at first a heel glow before being transformed into a golden ball of light. How the evolution of the soul so closely mirrors this simple awakening each morning.

At first the soul is so clouded down by the outflowing controls of the ego that only a dim light can be seen. However in the fullness of time as the ego is so worn down through pain and suffering experience it ever gives up or surrenders to the higher power within. So now we can see only the golden glow of the beautiful uplifting all inspiring soul light a burning fire.

Yes, in stillness Daniel sat there quietly pondering on the cyclic nature of life. Contemplating upon another failed relationship wondering what he had learned out of it all? This man is a little bitter may we say because he is now the veteran survivor of a couple of failed relationships. He is a little scarred and battle weary from his experiences. However in failure you have the seeds of success. So as he was always the eternal optimist; his interest was soon ignited when one fine day he sees a pretty young thing oops I mean young woman move across his field of vision. Attraction is the soul's joke on the personality.

The woman of his attraction was Rose an aspiring high priestess we may say. Although she understands the theory of the ancient wisdom she has yet the skill to live this correctly in practice. Even though she is a few years younger in physical age, her spiritual maturity was a finer lighter frequency by comparison. As their eyes met them both felt the shudder of instant magnetic attraction as their auras complimented each other lifting their composite energy even higher.

The higher frequency person is the teacher or guide while the lower frequency person is the student. We are all guides or students depending on who we are talking to on the path of life. Because Rose could see a little further than her partner she could see the limitations. However she chooses to commit herself as an act of service. In addition due to a very deep inner insecure, she felt drawn back into relationship to fulfill the soul driven urge to find completion. Every person who understands and lives personal responsibility correctly is also a priest. This is why we say that she is an aspiring high priestess because she is working towards this goal.

From that very first moment they pursued a path of courtship finding that place where all lovers ever go, the consummation of their love by becoming lovers. The big commitment was then made to love each other forever and always. This couple had a lot going for them in many respects. In particular they had an understanding of energy conservation. In addition the ability to raise energy from the lower to the higher chakra's or energy center's in the …

A Metaphor for Refractive Errors

Almost anything the most beautiful possible can be perceived only through the eyes. The eyes have long been considered as an essential organ for all sighted individuals. The eye is in fact a very complex organ that consist of various delicate parts. Each of these parts describes careful protection. Putting aside its complexity, the eye can be considered as a circle. It is easy to understand that the image of the circle will fall at the opposite side on the margin of the circle if a person shines a candle light in front of the circle. However, people with refractive errors have irregular eye balls. Taking the same example, the image of the candle light falls either in front or far behind the circle because of the irregular shape of the circle itself. This metaphor simply explains the principle of refractive errors. The reason is that those pamphlets are always hard to understand.

Once told to wear a pair of corrective eye glasses, either a child or an adult will probably get agitated or annoyed. However, it is often inevitable while the doctor believes that the glasses are the best solution. Refractive errors including nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism are the exact reasons for the need to use prescription glasses. It is impossible to shrink the eye by making a hole. Nor it is possible to make it enlarge by blowing air into it. Eyeglasses with appropriate powers are now widely used to make the eyes focus properly. Applying these lenses to the same metaphor, they are actually located in between the candle light and the circle. By adding such a lens, the image will fall exactly on the circle. Prescription lenses come with either minus or plus powers, corresponding to farsightedness or nearsightedness respectively. Just get relaxed when you are told to use eyeglasses.

Lola Rose Jewelery – The Story of Lola Rose

When the Lola Rose jewelery brand was first created ten years ago who would have known that it would quickly become one of the most well known jewelery ranges on both sides of the Atlantic. Worn by some of the most popular celebrities and seen in high end fashion magazines around the world, the Lola Rose jewelery range consists of some of the most elegant yet affordable pieces in the world of jewelery. But, the burning question has to be, just who is Lola Rose?

The Lola Rose jewelery range was born by Nicola Gewirtz back in 2000 as a side line venture to her promising career as a personal assistant in the corporate world. Having received a birthday gift from a friend which cost almost as much as the outfit it would compliment, Nicola realized that it was time luxurious jewelery was allowed to be purchased by the masses without the massive, sometimes outrageous price tags most commonly seen on the high street. So the Lola Rose jewelry range was born, named after her Grandma, Lola, an elegant woman on a daily basis, Nicola wanted to create a somewhat simple range of jewelery using still the best price range but still within a range range woman.

"Simply gorgeous, simply sexy, simply divine and simply chique." – Nicola Gewirtz for QVC

Initially just selling to her friends and family, Nicola quickly realized that this could and should be taken further. She took the gamble and with no real business knowledge started things formally and approached the big name stores. That was then, and now the Lola Rose jewelery range is one of the most respected ranges out there. Worn by celebrities such as Dannii Minogue, Halle Berry, and Angelina Jolie it has the endorsements of the 'A' lists while still retaining the price bracket that the masses can afford with typical pieces ranging from 50 to 100.

When asked, "what is your favorite piece", Nicola still stands by one of the first pieces she designed back in 2000, the 'tumble' bracelet, stating its simplicity is key to the range.

Lola Rose can be seen in many high street stores and across the web at places like QVC, JewelersWindow and even Amazon.

I wish Nicola the best of luck moving forward and am confident her pieces will continue to inspire and entice the public and accessorise the most glamorous of evenings.

Wind Power – The Ideal Power Source

Wind power: Nature and Origin

The solar radiations give birth to wind. These radiations heat up the surface of the planet earth, although in unequal proportions. This uneven heating follows as a direct result of the abrasive earth surface, rotational planetary movements as well as the continuously altering propensities of heat absorption of the different levels of the earth's atmosphere. The seas, oceans and vegetation types on earth play are important roles in this regard as well. As a result, some parts of the planet experience consistantly higher temperatures than certain other parts, all round the year.

For example, the poles of earth remain covered by snow and are always way colder than the warm equatorial regions. As a result of this phenomenon, air in the warmer parts grows lighter and less dense, and as such, begins moving in the upward direction. This creates a sort of vacuum in their place, which gets occupied rather quickly from the colder, denser, heavier air from nearby locations. Wind is defined as this movement process of air, and a form of kinetic energy is released from it. Modern technologies are made use of to acquire wind energy from this kinetic energy. The procedure of tapping and using wind energy to produce such outputs that can be used multiple number of times (like, electricity) is termed wind power.

Global usability of wind power

Wind is correctly described as the circulatory system of the entire earth. When sun rays reach the earth, the later gets heated up in an unequal fashion, due to rotational movements, uneven nature of earth's terrain, properties of the water bodies that differ from the vegetation-covered parts. The atmospheric levels of earth also vary in ability to absorb heat in its various layers. As a result of this unequal heating of the earth's surface, temperature differences remain between the earth's equator and the polar regions.

Air from the warmer parts of earth starts moving upwards. The void that created soon gets filled up by heavier air from the local cooler realms. Here, a redistribution of heat levels from the colder parts of the earth to the reliably warmer parts occurs. This process generates a form of energy. The latter can be used to produce electricity and / or mechanical energy (as the requirement might be). In fact, electricity produced from wind power resources make up approximately one per cent of the total worldwide supply of power forms.

There is a reasonable scope of more in-depth studies in topics surrounding wind power topics. However, usage of wind power has already become very popular all over the world. Germany, Denmark and America are the top three countries in terms of wind production. The recent past has indeed seen a spurt in the global usage of wind power.

The manner of working of wind power

Modern methods are used to tap and harness wind power, so that the latter can be converted into mechanical energy and electricity. The devices that generate mechanical energy from wind power resources are called wind mills. Wind turbines are the wind energy systems that convert wind power into electrical power. For realizing how wind power is exactly used, let us now look at the nature of the wind turbines. An average wind turbine has about two or three propeller blades, which are attached to a rotor.

A movable main shaft is used, to which the rotor, with its blades are fixed. The shaft is then attached to an electronic generator. When the latter starts to spin, electricity is produced. The blades of a wind turbine answer those in an airplane. Also, the most modern technologies, and the latest designs are used to manufacture of these turbines. Here, the latter can transform wind's kinetic energy to electric power. In keeping with the various uses that the wind turbines can be put to, they come with variable levels of power rating.

For example, a domestic home needs electricity that can be provided by a low powered turbine. However, for broad-based provincial an / or national application purposes, more electricity is required, and hence turbines with higher power ratings are needed. The power rating that any turbine has depends crucially on the speed with which wind moves across any particular region. This is in accordance with the law that, the amount of wind energy generated goes up with the velocity of the wind (raised to the power of 3). This immediately implies that, higher wind velocities would help in the production of more wind energy.

The effectiveness of wind power

Wind power systems use wind resources as their fuel. Now, wind is a free source of fuel that can be renewed as many times as wished for. As long as sun beats down on earth, no chances of exhaustion of wind stock …

Dress Code for a Limo Chauffeur

A Chauffeur dress code is a set of rules controlling what garments may be worn by a limousine driver. These rules are determined by the limousine company that employs the driver. They may set preference colors for suits, provide some uniforms or specific clothes for the driver to wear. However, chauffeur dress code has some universal rules that must be followed if your employee does not say otherwise.

Let’s look at the chauffeur dress code and what items should be worn by a male chauffeur.

Neck: For corporate runs and night outs tie is optional. However, a tie is required for weddings, graduations and other formal occasions. Bow ties are acceptable but are unusual. The top button of the collar of the shirt must be done up.

Overcoat can be worn if weather requires. Do not put overcoat over a single shirt. Wear a suit or a dark jacket.

Suit Jacket: Plain black suits are the preferred option for most limo operators, but any good quality dark suit is suitable too. Your limo company may have a color preference for a suit.

Shirt: Collared dress shirt is a necessity. It must be clean and well pressed. White is the universally preferred color for weddings and graduations, and other special occasions. For night outs your chauffeur could be dressed in black elegant shirt too. Any good quality white / black shirt will look good and elegant. Avoid button down collars.

Pants: Suit Pants that must match the jacket. Of course, preference for black if not specified otherwise.

Socks: Black or the same color as your suit. If not, at least same darkness as the suit. No logos, images of prints should be visible.

Footwear: Dress Leather Pumps. Preferably black, laced up. Note: people sometimes judge you by your shoes. It is a good idea to invest in good leather shoes and clean them every day.

Rings: A wedding or engagement ring is always allowed. Other rings should be kept away.

Belt: Leather belt that match your suit. No big belt buckles with logos or symbols.

The purpose of chauffeur dress is to represent the company and to make your customers feel in good hands. By following this dress code you will look professional and trustworthy from the second you step out of the limousine. However, the chauffeur needs much more than only to follow the dress code to impress the customers. On the other hand, a good first impression always helps.

Sunglasses and Beach Volleyball

Your volleyball game can be easily derailed if you don’t have the right sunglasses. Anyone who has ever gone to the beach knows that the sand and the surf can make the sun really intense. With all that reflected glare, sunglasses are a necessity for anyone at the beach. And beach volleyball players are no exception.

To play volleyball at the beach you have to follow the path of a white ball in front of a white hot sun. And if you look down then you have to look for a white ball on white sand background. The glare of the sun reflected off of the sand can be particularly vicious for beach volleyball players. They also need eye protection when diving into the sand to get a dig and getting sand in their eyes.

The successful beach volleyball player knows that it’s a small investment in a quality pair of volleyball sunglasses that can make the difference between playing good and playing awesome. Even the occasional or recreational player can benefit from high-quality polarized sunglasses. The difference can really be quite stunning. You will be amazed at how much more in control you can be when you can easily see the trajectory of the ball without squinting. And how quickly you can react to the movements of the ball when you can actually see it without guessing where it might be going.

Beach volleyball sunglasses are not just for the upper-echelon players who want to advance to the next level. Sunglasses will, without any doubt, make the game more enjoyable for anyone who wears them. It’s simple: stop you from squinting will release the tension pressure in your facial and jaw muscles which in turn will help you avoid the headaches that come from staring too long at objects in the brightness of the sun.

By wearing polarized sunglasses you can further enhance your volleyball viewing while protecting your eyes from the harmful effects of the sun from both UV light and reflected light. When purchasing a pair of volleyball sunglasses always be certain that they have a UV coating and are sufficiently dark. Wrap-around style glasses are also good at stopping unwanted reflected light from entering your field of view from the sides. The lenses need to be large enough to cover your entire eye. Then it all comes down to your personal style and preference. Be certain that the sunglasses fit snug and securely to your face without being to tight. You want the glasses to help but not be a distraction to your play. If the lenses are close to your eyes, almost like goggles, you can also get the added benefit of preventing sand from getting in your eyes when you dive for the ball.

Why Do We Box?

Why do I box? I struggled to figure this out for years. Mainly because I wanted to put it to myself in a way that would sound cool to everyone else. I wanted a bullshit marketing spin that I could buy into and sell to the entire world. I ran from the truth because I wanted to believe that boxing was for everyone, that everyone could benefit from this beast of an activity. It took me a long time to get real with myself, and the truth hit me one day when I read something out of the Autobiography of Malcolm X. My favorite book of all time, btw.

In that book, Malcolm X takes a visit to Mecca, during that visit he meets a man who spits some logic on him that blows his mind, it goes like this, "You have never really believed in something, until you want it for your brother as much as you want it for yourself. " Bamn! there it is … let it sink in.

Honestly, I do not want boxing for everyone, I do not want it for my mother, my friends, the kid who plays piano 3 hours a day, and I certainly do not want it for the MBA student who does everything his parents ever told him to. In fact, I do not care who boxes and who does not, and that's because there are defect issues at stake. Namely, fear and self-worth, this is what's at stake, this is what I care about and so should you.

What is boxing? It is a medium for expressing yourself, it's a tool and a set of techniques for relating to another human being, and that's some classic Bruce Lee philosophy. It's one medium among many to overcome fear, to gain confidence, to prove what you are capable of, and to establish your self-worth. Boxing is a sport, it's also a form of combat, and in it lies the basic components of conflict that anyone trying to excel at something faces: 1) mastery over yourself, 2) mastery over your environment, 3) mastery over others.

This is what the CEO is doing, it's what the b-boy is doing, it's what the gold-digger is doing, it's what the painter is doing, and it's what you are doing every time you step in the ring. In boxing there are no liars, the truth finds you quickly, it's a high risk and high reward program for discovering what kind of man you really are. High reward because once you have put in the work, put in the time, earned the skills and conditioned your body to the best it can be, you know that you can walk down the street everyday for a week and not pass anyone who can do what you do. Boxing is also high risk, you face your fear when you fight, and at the same time there is still a lot of fear, it's not fear of pain, but fear of losing what you've gained, fear of losing your confidence and your status. Fear of being the nobody you were before you boxed. That's why you better learn to love yourself somewhere along the way, because this boxing shit is not gonna last forever.

The boxer always has a tough dilemma, we are always one punch away from being knocked down, and I mean way down, if you do not believe me just go ask Ricky Hatton. The boxer who takes calculated risks accounts props because we all have our time when that punch turns our fate. Props to Ricky Hatton, no matter what anyone has to say. Mike Tyson took his fate turning punches from Douglas, Holyfield and Lewis. Roy Jones took his from Tarver. Roberto Duran took his from Hearns, and Hearns took his from Barkley and Hagler. As fighters, active or not, we deserve recognition from ourselves for the risks taken to face our fears, to prove our self-worth, and to gain mastery.

So why do I box? Because the pain and discontent inside me would not have had it any other way.

Sunglasses and Tips For Finding the Right Pair

Choosing the perfect pair of sunglasses is not as straightforward as it looks. Apart from the fact that there are literally hundreds of styles, colors and brands to make your choice from, you'll be looking for a pair that combines style with the ability to protect your eyes. Probably the best place to shop for sunglasses today is online, where the world is your oyster when it comes to the sheer number of sites you could purchase them from. Obviously the good old brick and mortar shops on the high street offer great ranges as well, but for pure choice, online is the way to go.

Virtually every brand of sunglasses is known to man can be purchased online. Online retailers offer well known brands such as Oakley, Ray Ban and Von Zipper, not so well known and even replica designs. Apart from selling sunglasses, some of these retailers also offer sunglass accessories such as protective cases, wiping cloths and cords, as well as related items such as ski goggles.

Without wanting to state the obvious, when purchasing sunglasses, a person has to make sure they buy a pair that suits them. Each individual has a different shaped face so sunglasses that may look good on one person, for example, may not look quite so good on someone else. Try and make sure you choose a pair that complements your facial shape, skin tone and hair color.

While on the topic of styles, think about frame colors as well. Frames come in a myriad of colors, from lights like yellow and orange to darks such as blacks and purples. Again, make sure you choose a frame color that is going to complement your complexion. The very fashion conscious will want to match sunglasses with different outfits they may own- if this is the case then you will need a few pairs of sunglasses in different frame colors. No mean task if we're talking designer sunglasses!

We must not forget that sunglasses were actually made to protect our eyes from harmful sun rays, not just as a fashion statement, so choosing a pair that offers ultra violet protection (100% protection is now the norm) is vitally important. UV rays have the ability to cause lasting or permanent damage to our eyes if we do not take precautionary measures while in the sun (or outside generally). A good pair of sunglasses that offers 100% UV protection may cost a little bit more but a little bit more is a small price to pay for the health and safety of our eyes!

How I Made $1.4 Million With AdSense & Facebook

Many people think that arbitrage is no longer relevant… but they would be way wrong. I am going to show you how I made over $1.4 million dollars with arbitrage using Facebook and Google AdSense.

There are a few small factors that people forget about when trying to be successful with arbitrage. In this article, I am going to go over how to increase AdSense revenue and decrease Facebook ad spend… resulting in higher profits and higher ROI.

Facebook Ads

If you are not using Facebook Ads to drive traffic to your website, then you are missing out on a crucial vertical of quality web traffic that can boost your site to the next level. Many people have tried Facebook Ads by creating an ad with the default image and default targeting.. but don’t get the results they are expecting.

The key to Facebook Ads is getting high CTR (click-through rate) ads. When this happens your relevant score goes up which results in lower CPC (cost-per-click). When your CPC’s are low, your profits raise… and this is the key.

So how do you get higher CTR ads? Well, knowing your audience is one important piece. This allows you to target specific demographics and weed out any Facebook users that probably wouldn’t have clicked your ad. This will lower your CPC.

Another very important piece of your Facebook Ad is your text and image. Using the default image that Facebook picks for you will most likely get you no results. Ads that stand out more will get more clicks so the key is to make a highly engaging ad with a targeted demographic. One great method I use to create high CTR Facebook Ads is to use text on the image. I use Adobe Photoshop but you can find many free tools that will allow you to do this. Facebook only allows 20% of text on an image and I like to use the max amount. Use text colors that contrast with your image and make it pop.

Google AdSense

Increasing your AdSense revenue will also help raise profits. There are some great ways to do this that many people don’t know about.

A great tip to increase your AdSense revenue is to check out your placement on your site. How many ads do you have above the fold? Do you have ads in high traffic areas? Does your ad contrast with your page or blend in?

Answering these questions can help raise AdSense CTR and CPC. Another important factor is having image and text ads enabled. When you only enabled one, you are missing out on possible revenue from advertisers. Many people are moving to their mobile phones for internet browsing and it’s your job as a webmaster to make your site mobile friendly. Just having a mobile friendly site will increase your revenue by 15%.

One of the most important parts of increasing AdSense revenue is to increase your pageviews. The more times someone browses through your site, the more chance of an ad getting clicked. Keeping users on your site is a very crucial part if you want to make anything with AdSense. Your pageviews per session should be higher than 3. Each extra pageview you get increases your chances of more revenue so have a user-friendly site with engaging content that will make someone stay longer.

Advertising Management System

Having an advertising management system is a necessary piece to this whole equation. Without the AMS system I used, I wouldn’t have been able to make the amount of money I did. Having a place to see each Facebook ad campaign and correlating AdSense pages/campaigns is the only way to make this amount of money. You can do it manually and do OK, but if you want to be very successful, you must use an advertising management system.

Samsung G600 – Simply Great to Operate

Samsung is one particular brand that has managed to actualise the expectations of the mobile phone users to a great extent.

Just What Is UV Protection On Sunglasses And Why Is It Important

Sunglasses are great in more ways than one. They can compliment your appearance while preventing you to have to squint while outside on a sunny day. But sunglasses are not simply a fashion accessory to be taken lightly. They are actually of major importance for protecting our eyes from the sun's UV rays which can lead to diseases of the eye when exposed to them over time.

The ultraviolet radiation element in sunlight is divided into two basic areas – UVA and UVB. Sunglasses block both of these types of rays. What exactly is UVA and UVB you ask? Well, UVA represents the ultraviolet radiation that passes through the Earth's ozone layer, reaches our skin and can lead to premature aging. UVB are also ultraviolet rays, but are absorb, in great amount, by the ozone layer. Still, they are very harmful and can contribute to the cause of skin cancer and cataracts.

The lenses of a pair of sunglasses should be dark enough to reduce the glare of bright light, but not so dark that they distort colors in objects, and obviously not so dark that they inhibit your vision. The point is that as long as the lenses are properly tinted, your eyes will be protected. You do not have to go 'crazy' looking for lenses that are so dark that they not only block out the sun's UV rays, but block out the actual sun itself.

The standard UV protectant level in the sunglass industry is UV400 – across the board – which protects the eyes from 98 per cent of the sun's ultraviolet rays. And statistics based on testing results from inexpensive sunglasses as compared to the more expensive brands show that even sunglasses in the $ 5 and below range, provide the same amount of protection as the more expensive variants. So, the good news is, you do not have to pay more for the best level of protection. And for those who wear prescription sunglasses, something else you might be interested in knowing is that the UV level is the same for both those and the store bought versions.

And for even further comfort and assurance, you may be happy to know that sunglass manufacturers have to follow certain FDA regulations. They have to comply with impact requirements – not saying that sunglasses must be completely shatterproof, but that they will at best, withstand a moderate impact. Sunglass manufacturers also have to follow labeling regulations. No doubt if you've ever bought a pair of sunglasses in your lifetime, you've had to peel that removable sticker off the front of one of the lenses either before you put them on or afterwards when you realize that something's obstructing your view.

They say you get what you pay for. Well, if you pay for a pair of sunglasses, you're paying for good eye health.

Protect Your Eyes and Look Fashionable With Cool Sunglasses

In recent years, there has been a significant rise in the consciousness of the public about the dangers of skin cancer and the importance of keeping your skin protected from the harmful rays of the sun. However, not many people realize that our eyes are also similar to similar dangers and that they also require some kind of protection against excess exposure to sunlight. The good thing about this is that there are hundreds of sunglasses that you can choose from to keep your eyes protected, without sacrificing style. In fact, most sunglasses are very stylish and can be very instrumental in enhancing your overall look.

People have been using sunglasses to protect the eyes for many decades now. Even before the first pair of sunglasses was created, it has been discovered that ancient people had already used some kind of eyewear many centuries ago. These early versions of the sunglasses were found in the Arctic remains of the Inuit people who had used eyewear made of wood and bone with tiny slits. These were supposedly used to prevent their eyes from being damaged by snow blindness. Interestingly, a similar kind of contraption is mentioned in the novels of Jean Auel, which works are based largely on actual scientific research. This only goes to show that it is really very likely that the use of eyewear has actually started earlier than we had initially thought.

The earliest predecessor of the current tinted sunglasses may be traced to the early Chinese civilizations during the medieval period. However, instead of providing protection against the sun, these glasses were used by judges during court trials in order to conceive their expressions from the other individuals in the courtroom. The concept of using tinted shades to actually provide eye protection was first materialized when James Ayscough, an apprentice to an optician, created the first pair for his own personal use. He had the idea that excessively bright light actually harms the vision. Fortunately for him, his idea caught on and eyeglass manufacturers began making tinted sunglasses on a regular basis.

All of this happened many centuries ago but it was only during the 1930s that the general public started to regard sunglasses as a real fashion accessory and not just a means to protect the eyes. The first sunglass company in the United States was established in New Jersey and from that point, there was nowhere to go but up.

During the years of the war, the government mandated Bausch & Lomb to produce several sunglasses for the Air Force so that the pilots will be protected against the constant glare in the sky. It was also around this time that Ray Ban first came up with their signature aviator style sunglasses known for their polarized lens and stylish design. Today, the war has long been over but Ray Ban shades live on and continue to be one of the best selling sunglasses not only in the United States but all over the world.

Considering its humble beginnings, no one would have predicted that sunglasses would be enjoying the immense success that it has today. Sunglasses are now worn by all sorts of people, regardless of the age, gender, occupation or cultural background. The price varies greatly, with the cheapest ones selling for less than 5 bucks, and the more high-end brands reaching up to hundreds or even thousands of dollars. However, expensive sunglasses do not always necessarily offer higher quality in terms of protection. While most of these branded shades do give you 100% UV protection, you can actually get the same kind of protection from cheaper glasses. It is true though, that the designs of branded sunglasses are very rarely equaled by those of less expensive versions. If you can afford to shell out hundreds of dollars on an Armani or Dior pair of sunglasses, go ahead as long as the pair you are interested in will give you the protection that you need.

Selecting the right design of sunglasses can also be quite tricky, especially if you have no idea of ​​how to look. There are certain types of frames that flatter different face shapes, and your optometrist will be able to give you some hints in this regard. You will also have to make your final decision based on the type of lens used. Most people today prefer plastic lenses as opposed to the heavier and more fragile glass. The material used for the frame is also something to think about. Metal and plastic are the most common options.

Sunglasses have been around for several years and to this day, there are no signs to indicate that it will soon be out of fashion. On the contrary, its extreme popularity only goes to show that it is here to stay …
