Oakley’s Fast Jackets
The only way swapping lenses on your sunglasses can get easier is if a concierge does it for you. Oakley’s Fast Jackets have a “SwitchLock” lever built into the earpiece: Flip it down, the lens is unlocked; to change the lens, flip it up. When dusk falls, you can change out of your dark lenses and into clear ones in 15 seconds. The twin-lens, sports-oriented frames have slightly less coverage than Oakley’s M Frames, but convenience far outweighs any drawbacks ($220; www.oakley.com).
