As the four-eyed staffers of Uncrate can attest, nice-looking specs are rarely cheap. Fortunately that's not the case with Warby Parker Eyewear ($95). Started by four friends sick of paying eye-popping prices for their eye enhancers, this collection of well-designed, vintage-inspired modern frames will have you seeing right and looking respectably geeky for not a lot of dough. And besides looking dapper, Warby Parker works with RestoringVision.org to give one pair of glasses to someone in need for every pair they sell. Oh, and did we mention monocles?

If your alcoholic escapades often take you beyond the land of seedy bars and into black tie dinners with the rich and obviously miserable, be sure to grab a pair of Bottle Opener Cufflinks ($50). Made from polished stainless steel, these interesting accessories are subtle enough to blend in with an upscale crowd — although you're probably not being as sneaky as you think if you're drinking Bud Ice straight from the bottle. Use a glass, savage.
