Arnette Eyewear’s Public Enemy Collection Sunglasses

Public Enemy Arnette Sunglasses

What I didn’t realize while it was happening in the 1980s and 90s, and even up until this year, was how successfully Public Enemy branded themselves in an era when “branding” wasn’t a buzzword or something that everyone was trying to build, bereft of skill as they may be.

Even today, if you blast Public Enemy in your office at what is considered more than a reasonable volume, it will likely be received as a “statement” of some kind, just like when you hear a commercial for the latest U2 album and know there must be a new Apple product out.

The Public Enemy logo, a silhouette of a b-boy in the crosshairs of a gun sight, stood on its own merit independent of the group and became a defiant fashion statement against oppression (perceived or real), e.g. Edward Furlong as antagonist John Connor in “Terminator 2: Judgment Day,” who wears a PE shirt for the entirety of the movie.

Iconic still today, sunglass company Arnette Eyewear launched a limited edition Public Enemy Collection as a part of both its “Uncommon Projects” initiative and the 25th Anniversary of the song, “Fight the Power.”

“I like to wear sunglasses, but I don’t like to wear sunglasses at performances,” the group’s Chuck D said to Rolling Stone. “We decided to do this because we were tired of not having things for people. We’re not going to go do some lucrative vodka shit, where it’s the rapper goes big and has his own vodka. I can’t do that. I’m not part of that one. But I hope these do well.”

Built on the classic look of Arnette’s Witch Doctor frame, the glasses come with interchangeable black and white arms that feature the logo on one side and the classic “Public Enemy” name on the other.

With cool fall weather blowing in, it’s not too late to tackle some of your landscaping projects. Autumn is the perfect time to roll up your sleeves and create a landscape to enjoy all year long.

A fire pit will be a welcome addition for entertaining in almost any space. It’s a cozy gathering spot and offers an enjoyable way to spend time with family and friends on a lazy summer evening, a cool fall night or a snowy winter afternoon.

You’ll also find that it’s a project most people can do themselves with a few simple tools, so don’t think you have to pay an arm and a leg to a contractor to get this done. You can find everything you need from Lowe’s, particularly materials from allen + roth.

I recently completed this project with the help of friends and family, with most of the work being done over a three-day period. You can see the final result in the first photo, and then the rest of the slideshow shows the progress of the project from beginning to end.
