The sound is great and there's a bro in the box

John John’s SPY Shades

They fold, and how!

This is no place for fashion advice, but we can’t help but to extoll the virtues of these sunglasses. They fold up, not like the standard "hook ‘em in your collar” fold, but more like a multi-hinged, MacGyver, gotta go, life on the run, front-pocket type of operation.
