Shutter Shades for Men

by Chris

If you have ever passed by apparel retail store “Mint” or “Human”, you may have probably seen these so-called shutter shades a.k.a. Venetian sunglasses as popularized by Kanye West.

It’s pretty obvious why they were named as such. See, they actually look like the Venetian blinds which we use for our bedroom’s windows. PGG Forum member Jayvee, was kind enough to share how these glasses look on him when worn. If you would notice these shades come in two types. One, which only has shutters (as seen above) and another, which has shutters plus the glasses like Jayvee’s below.

These shades are really for style so it doesn’t matter if you wear it even when the sun is not way up high.

How about you? Do you think you can pull it off?

I actually have one, bought it last summer.

TIP for Men:
1.If you’re like me, mejo dark-skinned, it’s better to buy the yellow one. It might be crazy dahil mas ma-eemphasize ang pagka-itim natin. Dump that idea. I think it’s really good.

i dont like the idea of wearing this outside. clubs lang siguro pero i cant imagine myself wearing those to the malls πŸ™‚

Nah, I was thinking of buying it but it’s not really a ‘universal’ guy thing. I mean, it goes with a particular type of guy… But I don’t know what that type is, but I do think I’m not that type…

Since I am the preppy type and I go for solid and clean colors sa clothes, I guess I’ll say pass for these pair of shades. This is fashion overkill for me, I can’t be caught wearing thoses even sa clubs or anywhere else. Yes, it is style but it lacks substance. Parang from the ghetto ka if you wear these shades. If they wanted the “venetian blinds effect” why didn’t they went around carrying one over their eyes?…

i personally think its a dumb fad.

it isn’t practical at all

CATACLYSMIC nailed it: it lacks substance.

and taking fashion pointers from kanye is just ridiculous

yup i can pull this off but it would be a nuisance to take it off too often because you can’t see where you’re going… you might drop in a man hole and end up in mess and humiliation…
