(Gibson) Metallica's James Hetfield has partnered with Sutro Eyewear to produce a line of limited-edition signature sunglasses.

The JH Sutro Sunglasses, dubbed simply "the Hetfield," carry a retail price of $219. "[These shades] are built to look faster than a speeding riff and tJames Hetfield Sutro Sunglasseso handle the life of a road dog like me," Hetfield said, in a prepared statement.

According to Metallica's merchandise page, the frames sport hinges that are 10 times stronger than traditional hinges, and the Zeiss polycarbonate lenses are scratch resistant and protect from both UVA and UVB rays. "James was very particular in what he was looking for," said designer Jeff Sand, according to Allaxess.com. "He just wasn't finding it out there, so we sat down and after extensive prototyping we put his vision into this frame." more on this story
