Fashion Eyewear for Gooks or Gook Wannabes


Slanties are based on ancient Inuit eyewear. Each pair of slanties is handcrafted. Our light, durable finish shows off the natural wood grain. slanties are engineered to be sturdy and reliable, and each pair is reinforced with a layer of fiberglass. If cared for correctly, your slanties will last for 800 years. Wear slanties on the beach as functional sunglasses. Wear Slanties to the club. Wear slanties to visit your grandparents, they’ll love them too. We hope that each pair will bring you great happiness.
In addition to the stunningly racist name, those fuckers will set you back $75.

Of course, the real Inuit sunglasses are way cooler (see picture below). By the way, a few years ago, I was at the Inuit Art Museum/Gallery in Quebec City, and I almost bought a pair. Luckily, friends and colleagues who were with me managed to talk me out of it. I still regret not having bought them that day.
