Why I Need Affordable Sunglasses

Posted by Adrian Doggrell on Jun 23, 2013 5:39:00 PM


Until a few months ago, I never wore sunglasses. Growing up, I was given plenty of pairs, some for Christmas, some for birthdays, and some because my dad wanted me to be prepared when he took me fishing. The problem was, no matter how hard I tried or how much I loved them, I would inevitably lose or break my sunglasses. After doing this a few times, I gave them up altogether. I switched to baseball hats because for some reason they were harder for me to lose. Unfortunately, that left me quite underprepared for many situations. Luckily, I was recently introduced to Pugs Gear sunglasses for men by a close friend, and he opened my eyes to a whole new world.

Golfing was probably my biggest issue. As I work during the day, I typically golf later in the afternoon into the evening. For any of you that golf, this can be an amazing time of day to hit the links, but if you live in Denver, this is also an extremely bright time of day. My standard baseball cap is rendered useless because the sun is no longer high up in the sky. Instead, it feels level with my face and intent on making sure I cannot see the flag in the distance. If only there was some way to shade my eyes…

I wanted to invest in a new pair of sunglasses, but after my last big hiking trip where my fancy two-hundred dollar pair of sport sunglasses fell off my face and down a large ravine, I quickly decided to retire the facial ornament permanently. I simply could not afford to buy another “nice” pair of sunglasses. It wasn’t just the one pair that set me off. It was literally every pair of nice sunglasses I had ever purchased. If they didn’t fall of my face to a rocky grave I would sit on them in my car. If I didn’t sit on them, I would forget them altogether at a restaurant. Eventually, I simply got so sick of having to pay for nice sunglasses over and over and over that I decided to give up. I didn’t realize there was a better option out there, that is, until a friend told me about Pugs Gear.

My friend was telling me that I had been wasting hundreds of dollars on sport sunglasses unnecessarily. He said I could find stylish and quality sunglasses for men at a fraction of the price. As you can imagine, I was quite skeptical about Pugs Gear. I do want to say though that my father raised me to speak the truth and own up to something when it calls for it. Well, the time has come because my friend was right. Pugs Gear offers incredible sunglasses for almost nothing. I have never found such quality in the price range. So even though I am guaranteed to break and or lose future pairs of sunglasses, it is never going to hurt my wallet in the same way. I could buy ten or twenty pairs of quality sunglasses for the same cost of replacing my old fancy brand pair. The numbers simply don’t lie.

I am not saying that Pugs Gear is for everybody. It certainly isn’t. Some people need high fashion brands to feel comfortable. Some people need to pay over $150 to feel like they are buying a quality pair of sunglasses. But if you are like me, financials are an issue, and you simply cannot afford to shell out that kind of cash. I only care about three things when it comes to buying sunglasses for men, they must be affordable, they must work well, and I must like how they look. Luckily for me, I can find many styles that fit my taste at Pugs Gear, and all of their products are well-made and extremely affordable. I am so happy to say that I honestly don’t see myself going back to my previous life of expensive brands. In the end, it just isn’t worth it for me.
