If you follow my travel posts, pretty much any shot of moi shows an elegant tortoiseshell (faux) necklace with gold (faux) loop. LaLoop. It’s my fav eyeglass / sunglass carrier. And once you try one of these, you’ll travel everywhere with it, too. (There are manly versions, too, guys.)
$190.00. (They range from about $130 to $250+). Yeah, I agree it’s pricey. And unfortunately, the other LaLoop I bought – silver chain – rarely gets worn because it pulls hairs on my nape. Ouch.
One of these days, mine will disintegrate off my neck. I wear it gardening, bike riding, hikes and out and about at home, too.
To me, this style is preferable over cords and chains that connect to each earpiece because (1) this holds two pairs of glasses and (2) it looks like jewelry, (3) for vanity reasons, I think the other kind looks granny, and (4) I hand-wash it often on grimy trips like safaris, as I do glasses and such. It’s basically plastic.
Now, it’s not perfect. My glasses still drop out of it; I tend to climb, crawl, go upside down, stoop, reach, dance, fly and such. For that reason, expensive eyewear stays home. And just as importantly, it can tuck inside my clothes. Yet, (look at the very bottom photo), I don’t think to do that every time, like when sitting with a gorilla.
