Best fashion accessories for Skiing – Quality Unique Sunglasses

The most important part of planning a skiing holiday is choosing what to wear, obviously. A skiing outfit has multiple areas to consider; jacket, gloves, sunglasses, etc. Many of us stick with the same old skiing trousers and jackets for years due to the shear expense of them. Therefore in order to jazz up your ski outfit this winter here is our list of must have ski accessories this winter.

Gloves – Hooligan Gloves

Often over looked as a fashion item, gloves now come in many unique and stand out designs. S&F’s preference this winter are the Hooligan Gloves by North Face. These quality gloves offer performance and style to freshen up your ski out fit this winter.

You can go to the S&F shop page to design your own sunglasses choosing from two frame types and many material options. This experience allows you to add unique sunglasses to your ski outfit to make a ski outfit statement.

Custom SunglassesBeenie – Bonfire

Bonfire are a top end snow boarding brand with some high quality kit. We love their selection of Beenies. Their click to change colour feature reminds us of our design your own sunglasses function. The Beenies are well made and will make the perfect partner to your other skiing accessories.

Skiing StyleBandana – Pendleton

Todays skiing Bandana’s are a stylish alternative to a scarf or turtleneck on the slopes. Quality is crucial for comfort and design is crucial for looks. We believe that the Chief Joseph Bandana by Pendleton has both of these attributes. Make sure you acquire one of these for a considered addition to your slope style.

Best Skiing Sunglasses
Pinsleys by Staple & Ford

Skiing is and will always be one of the most fashion orientated sports there is. Up there with the most important skiing accessory is a skier’s choice of sunglasses. Trends are moving fast and selection can be tricky. However luckily for you Staple & Ford are here with their quality custom sunglasses which make the perfect personalised accessory to any skiing outfit.

There are a number of considerations that need to be made when selecting your perfect pair of sunglasses for a ski trip; Quality of Lens, Quality of Material and Style. S&F believe that by giving you the ability to design your own sunglasses with quality materials, you can achieve the perfect pair of skiing sunglasses.

Quality of Lens

S&F spent a significant amount of time sampling hundreds of lenses to come up with the best three lens options for your custom sunglasses for skiing. The first priority was UV protection, therefore all of our lenses are 100% UV certified. For us the next feature was to make looking through the lenses in your personalized sunglasses an experience in itself. Each lens truly improves any view by adding a beautiful filter to your day on the slopes.

Azure: Blue lens that makes even grey days look beautifully blue and bright, whilst still filtering out the intense sunlight.

Sepia: A subtle traditional brown lens with a breath taking filter that is hard to describe without experiencing it for yourself.

Smoke: A dark black lens with a hint of red that is perfect for more intense sun conditions. This lens looks particularly good in our matte black frame.

Quality of material

More common sunglasses brands such as Ray Ban, Oakley, etc. make their frames using molded plastics. This is the cheapest form of manufacturing sunglasses and the result is a cheap look and feel. Staple & Ford only use the highest grade hand molded acetates to give a quality finish to every pair of custom sunglasses. The acetate is reinforced with stainless steel to add strength. When designing your S&F custom sunglasses you are given 3 frame acetate options; Classic Tortoise Shell, Matte Black and Speckled Tortoise Shell. Regarding temple options you can produce your own personalized sunglasses using 4 different acetate options; the three mentioned above plus a translucent option for a set of truly personalized sunglasses.

Premium Customisable Sunglasses

Personalisation for Sunglasses

The trend of personalisation seems to have swept the nation – from designing your own trainers at Nike, to having your own name on your bottle of Coke. We want what we want and choice is no longer a luxury.

Staple & Ford have extended this phenomenon of personalisation to sunglasses where there has been a real lack of customisation offerings, especially for quality customisable sunglasses. Sunglasses are such an important fashion accessory and too often they are far too similar to the next persons. Staple & Ford gives you the opportunity to create your own quality customisable sunglasses – you can choose the shape, colour for both frame and temples and the colour of the lenses. Our quality customisable sunglasses are all hand made from the highest quality acetate, so that your personalised sunglasses look and feel premium. Get customising now at www.stapleandford.com.
