    How do you wear you sunnies when inside?

    With summer here, I am wearing sunglasses more and more. The challenge is where to put them when going indoors. There is this handy reference:

    https://dappered.com/2013/07/where-t...ou-go-indoors/

    But what are you guys doing?

    I usually have the case with me, so I'll put them in their case and carry them. Granted it isn't the best, and I'm always worried of setting the glasses/case down somewhere and forgetting them, but that's been what works for me. In a pinch I'll hang them from my shirt too.

    If you don't need prescription lenses I can't recommend these enough https://www.amazon.com/Distil-Union-...S9H28Z6J4EPJAQ My wife got the wayferer and loves them.

    They aren't thick enough for prescription lenses but the mag lock in the frames holds onto your shirt/pocket really well. Also the scratch resistance holds up to getting hit by the occasional hammer? https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_c...&v=zDsCHeFDM6E About 2:56 into the vid

    If I'm wearing a suit jacket I'll slide one arm into a lower front pocket (I leave the lower pockets stitched closed). In casual clothes I usually carry the case, but if I can't (say playing golf and grabbing something at the 10th tee shop) I usually hook an arm into a front pants pocket (if the opening is horizontal) or through my belt.

    Part of that is all my sunglasses have a noticeable curve, so putting them in a shirt pocket or hanging them from the collar is uncomfortable.

    I bring the case, or if they will be off only shortly, stick an arm into a pocket (chest if available).

    I leave them in the car most of the time but if I bring them in I just hook them on my shirt collar or put them in a chest pocket.

    I usually wear prescription glasses/sunglasses, so I typically have to switch when going in/out. I usually have the other pair in a fabric case in my pocket. However, on days when I'm wearing contacts and only sunglasses, I usually just hang them from my shirt collar/placket for short times, or i'll just put them in the case/pocket for a longer stint indoors.

    Formal dress like work? I usually leave in the car or case in my work bag.

    Informal. On top of my head. I don’t want to crunch the glasses in a pocket and hate having stuffed pockets.

    I usually put them in my pants pocket, so that only one leg is inside , and the rest of the glasses are out, I believe that is mentioned as well in Dappered chart.

    I know there is potential for glasses to fall off, but honestly I never lost or even dropped a pair.

    Now, that can depend on the size of your pockets, shorts, and pants etc..I wear mostly JC shorts and pants, and glasses seem to stay put.

    If I'm doing temporarily, I go for outside chest pocket of my suit jacket/sportcoat if I'm wearing one, with one of the arms stuck out (and down) from the pocket. I do this because with some jackets the pocket is deep enough to have the glasses go far in and be hard to get out when I need them. I prefer this to other pockets because I often have other stuff in those (my phone, my headphones (airpod case), keys, etc.) that could ding them up.
