Whether he doesn't 'do' shopping or just needs a few little updates, these 15 finds will bring him right up to speed in time for summer.
Happy (almost) Father's Day to all the great (soon-to-be-extra-stylish) dads out there.
WHY HE'LL LOVE THEM | If he's wearing his vintage (in a bad way) high school Oakleys, scratched up shades, or bright white sunglasses (omg Dad, soooo embarrassing), it's time to get him a pair he can finally wear in public. Thank you Ray-Ban.
