As an optometrist, I enjoy access to a lot of visual lifestyle products and services. So it’s not often I’m head over heels for one particular company or their products. That is, until I found Declan. Check out the video and then read on below:
A Sunwear Surprise
If you follow The Visual Lifestyle, you’ll know my favorite sunglasses come from Maui Jim. And, you might know I passed them up for a long time.
When I first tried them, however, I was astonished. So much so that I was disappointed I hadn’t tried them earlier. Check out this post to find out more about that story.
Don’t Call It a Lens Cloth
The same thing happened when I received my first product from Declan. I was immediately impressed with both the utility and style of their upscale textiles. And, I was kicking myself for not trying them sooner.
According to their website, Declan is more than a lens cleaning cloth, it’s a lifestyle accessory. In their own words, it is “Engineered to effectively and sartorially clean your eyewear, touch screens, camera, etc.”
I was immediately impressed with both the utility and style of their upscale textiles. Soon after, I had my own little collection of Declan products. Now, I carry one with me every day.
The video above includes this line: “Use Declan, and you’ll discover an unexpected essential for your everyday life.” I have found that to be true, and I think you might too.
Here are four reasons I carry Declan products with me everywhere I go:
- Form: The Declan square I have with me as I write is both larger and thicker than traditional lens cloths.
- Function: The added size and heft makes it a lot easier to clean larger surfaces, such as tablets and even my computer monitor.
- Style: I have used Declan products both casually (tucked into the back of my jeans) and formally (as a pocket square). They always get noticed, and trigger frequent comments. I even had another eye doctor swoon over one.
- Variety: Declan offers two sizes and two materials. And, they offer other products with unfinished edges if it’s truly just a lens cloth you’re after.
As you can imagine, I have the opportunity to use a lot of different visual lifestyle accessories, many of them for free. Yet I still choose to buy Declan products, and I use them daily.
I hope you’ll try them and enjoy them as much as I do.
Question: If you’ve tried Declan, what do you think? If not, what is your favorite visual lifestyle accessory? Please let me know in the comments below.
Author’s note: I do not receive financial or other compensation from Declan. I simply write about their products because I use them, believe they work, and think you’ll benefit from them too.
