Up until last year, I tried to wear fancy sunglasses. I say “tried” because I always ended up losing or breaking them. I became so sick of spending a lot of money on glasses just to end up without them that I stopped wearing them. I thought you couldn’t get a decent pair of sunglasses without spending an arm and a leg, but it turns out I was wrong. Apparently there is a brand of sunglasses that are both quality and affordable. I didn’t know that existed before I tried on a pair of Pugs, but wouldn’t you know it, they exist. I thanked my friend who introduced me to them by buying him a pair, something I never would have been able to afford before Pugs. Now, I see the world in a whole new light, thanks to my cheap sunglasses.
The friend who showed me Pugs had told me about them for quite a while before I ever actually got to see them. He would tell me that I had wasted hundreds of dollars unnecessarily. He said I could find stylish and quality sunglasses at a fraction of the price. As you can imagine, I was quite skeptical about Pugs Gear. When he finally remembered to bring a pair to me, I saw how amazing they are.
Now, I don’t want to sound ridiculous talking up a solid pair of glasses, but I honestly was that blown away. They looked solid. They felt great, and most importantly they are cheap sunglasses. No, they aren’t made poorly. They are made well, but they are priced normally instead of marked up 1000%. I have never found such quality in this 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 pairs. 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 every time you lose a pair.
I only care about three things when it comes to buying sunglasses, 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. I guess I am just a cheap sunglasses kind of guy…
