Mogul talk. It’s a phrase that’s made regular appearances in conversations over the past 18 months thanks to the inimitable DJ Khaled and his ever-increasingly gifted protegé, Asahd. If you build it, they will come. Think it. Do it. Be it. Motivational speakers are normally pretty polarizing figures, but when it comes to Khaled Mohamed “Don’t ever play yourself,” “We the best” “I’m so serious” Khaled, it’s hard not to feel charged up.

But you know what they say, actions speak louder than words. And nowhere is this more evident than in the one-man mogul machine that is Sean “Diddy” Combs. Recently crowned the richest man in hip-hop (again) by Forbes magazine, with a cool net worth of $820 million, Diddy is the epitome of the mogul life, quietly closing business deals left right and center – even enlisting 2017’s viral star of the year, Salt Bae, to appear alongside him in a commercial for Cîroc vodka. The man might have barely been near a microphone in recent years, but he’s got this mogul thing on lock.

Sadly, we don’t all have a few hundred million lying around the apartment, so the Diddy lifestyle will have to remain a pipedream for now. You could, however, grab a small slice of the action with a pair of appropriately luxurious sunglasses. German eyewear manufacturer Cazal has long been the sunglasses brand of choice for many of our favorite artists. Run D.M.C.’s Darryl “D.M.C.” McDaniels famously made a pair of Cazals one of his signature accessories. Spike Lee’s love affair with the luxury eyewear manufacturer goes all the way back to his debut film, She’s Gotta Have It. Rick Ross even has the label’s logo tattooed on his face.

With that in mind, here’s a quick shopping guide to some reassuringly ostentatious sunglasses for the mogul-in-waiting. Don’t worry, the millions can come later.

Lightly-tinted lenses and a (relatively) understated frame. You can practically smell the apartment full of rich mahogany from here.

I can see clearly now the frame has gone. Good, right?

Some nicely squared-off frames countered with some flamboyant temples. Business in the front. Business in the side too, just flashier. Hey, you’re a mogul now. It’s ALWAYS business.

Famously seen on the face of Doug “The Head” Denovitz in Guy Ritchie’s Snatch, think of these as the choice for the mogul who makes their millions in, shall we say, less savory dealings.

Look at how many angles there are on these things. And we all know what more angles means – more business deals. That’s just science.
