If you thought it reasonable to expect just one head-scratching crossover product from a music icon today, you were sorely mistaken. Metallica front man James “HEYAHHHH” Hetfield is releasing some $219.99 shades through Sutro Eyewear, and he describes them thus: “Built to look faster than a speeding riff and to handle the life of a road dog like me,” with hinges TEN TIMES STRONGER than regular sunglasses hinges. After Loutallica, sunglasses hinges and James Hetfield don’t even look weird together.
