Metallica frontman James Hetfield has partnered with Sutro Eyewear to create the limited-edition JH Sutro Sunglasses. Labeled "the Hetfield," the frames are described on the band's merchandise page as the singer's "ideal pair of sunglasses" and come in black and tortoiseshell.  

The shades are "built to look faster than a speeding riff and to handle the life of a road dog like me," says Hetfield in a statement. The sleek-looking frames includes hinges that are advertised as 10 times stronger than traditional ones and also feature Zeiss polycarbonate lenses that are scratch-resistant and protect from both UVA and UVB rays.

"James was very particular in what he was looking for and he just wasn't finding it out there, so we sat down and after extensive prototyping we put his vision into this frame," says designer Jeff Sand, according to Blabbermouth. The Hetfield retails for $219.99.
