Knocked up for Knockarounds

For those of you who don't know, my wife and I are expecting in April. We are super pumped and have really enjoyed the pregnancy part of parenthood so far. To make it even more fun, we're waiting till the little minion pops out to find out its gender. My wife and I had an idea the other night of how to announce the gender to all of our friends and family in the waiting room...Knockarounds. We figured, hey, they've been on our faces for the important events in our lives so far, why not?

So I emailed Ace, the owner of Knockaround, my idea. He was totally in. We have a pretty good email relationship if I might say so myself. The man is a legend and has made some super gnarly sunglasses since 2005. For those of you who don't know much about Knockarounds, read a book, these glasses are the shit. I have like 7 pairs of them.

We had all of the groomsmen wear them in our wedding and of course Ace hooked us up then. Knockaround came out with some sunglasses made out of recycled materials not to long ago and the colors were perfect for our idea. Check em...

This 3-pack goes for $42.00 right now, on sale. They are $16 a piece if you want one color.

Oh yea, the idea. So, its simple. I wear the color that corresponds to the gender of the baby. Like I said, Ace loved it and boom...

You guys have to give the man some business, tell him I sent you. He's got some legit stuff going down at Knockaround, always making people want the newest designs. You can even customize your own! I mean, damn, even Snoop Dogg wears them!

I'm trying to see if they plan on releasing some polarized lens glasses soon, if so, my bank account will be hurting bad. Check out and be sure to order some sunglasses. You can't beat $14 for some gnar gnar pow pow sunglasses. Look good, feel good, fish good...
