Admittedly, they are not for everyone, but croakies are one of the finer things in life. A simple and practical pleasure.
I know nothing of their history, you know, how they came about and stuff like that. But am rather familiar with their current place which seems to be heavily rooted in the preppy, ‘bro’ and southern style circles. Or at least I guess that’s what you could call them. I also see them a lot in the boating/sailing scene, but that overlaps somewhat with the previous three. No doubt, rocking a set of croakies (or similar product) can add that little extra edge to your style. But what is most important is their functionality.
In my younger years I would wear them on my sunglasses with limited frequency. However, a most violent toss from a wave runner on senior year spring break resulted in the loss of a pair of aviators. I foolishly had not donned croakies for the outing. I vowed to myself that this would never again happen. So nowadays croakies are attached to a majority of my pairs of sunglasses. I have not lost a pair since. And a happier and richer man I am for that.
