You know Hunter S. Thompson: the writer who pioneered Gonzo journalism in the 70s. He's also the guy that photographer Al Satterwhite chronicled in The Cozumel Diary which captured Thompson's eclectic ensembles and keen sense of personal style. Now Self Edge, the go-to retailer for selvedge and Japanese denim, is debuting a new line of Hunter S. Thompson-inspired sunglasses in collaboration with the iconic Tokyo-based eyewear company, Globe Specs. The handmade Cozumel shades are available in three color options and priced at $345. Pair the accessory with a shorts suit (another Thompson classic) and relive those glory days.
