    Art---Wicking shirts allow businessmen to turn simple clothing into "gear". Thus they prey on the penchant of people to be "into" things rather than simply doing things.

    Though I've a drawer full of safety glasses when I'm out riding (or just out) I wear old-school Ray-Ban Wayfarers or Persols. Just because they look so damned cool.
