GIVEAWAY: Two Pairs of Capital Sunglasses (Closed)

Summer is winding down, but thanks in part to all this awesome global warming we’ve got going on, you can still hit the beach for a little while longer. If your day in the sun wardrobe includes a pair of knockoff shades you got at a mall kiosk, it’s time to upgrade. Capital is the kind of brand you should turn to in these times of need. The independent frame manufacturer carefully churns out pairs of well-made, stylish sunglasses. From handmade wooden frames to bioplastic shades made from plants, the California based company will deliver you some eye protectors you can rock proudly. Plus, right now, you’ve got a shot to do so for free.

GIVEAWAY CLOSED – Congrats James B. and Dean Q.

We’ve got a pair of Bonnie & Clyde’s in Walnut ($115) and a pair of Bonnie & Clyde’s in Tortoise Acetate  ($125) up for grabs. Here’s how you could win one of the pairs:

1. Follow Cool Material on Twitter here

2. Tweet this message “I want @CoolMaterial and @CapitalEyewear to hook me up with new sunglasses

We’ll pick two winners on 8/15/12. One entry per person.
