Carrera was established in 1956 and produces high-performance sports eye wear, ski helmets, and goggles for a wide range of extreme sports. The name itself is taken from an extreme sport – the Carrera Panamericana, an auto race that used to cross the entire country of Mexico.
Purchase these at Bloomingdales for $120-150.

This is your official public service announcement of the latest trends. If you’re a regular here at The Urban Gentleman, then you may already know most of these.
As of Monday June 8, 2009:
2. When I go to lunch or tea with a well-dressed gentleman its hard to not notice his pants are cuffed or that his shirt sleeves are rolled up. Interchangeably during the warmer months try either rolling the sleeves on your plaid shirt or cuffing the pants on your dark denim jeans.
3. Canvas shoes keep the feet cool… I think. Whether in boot, boat, or skipper format canvas shoes are an easy must.
4. The sun must be blocked and “modified wayfarers” are what should be worn to block it… there are so many styles- rectangular, oval, classic, flat, retro… wear what looks best on you.
