Following on from our article regarding women’s designer sunglasses, here is one for the guys. We’ve chosen some of the most classic designs, and thrown in a few quirky ones too. We’ve also taken some well-known designer brands that have added a cool twist of some of their more signature styles.
Here’s our best picks:
Lovely streamlined look here with a semi-rimless frame that feature Oakley’s ultra-modern lenses with High Definition Optics. These are polarized to stop 100% of UV light. Includes ear socks for added comfort.
When you think of a classic pair of Ray Bans, you typically conjure up a black frame with grey lenses. We love these because of the unusual pairing of tortoiseshell and brown lens. All Ray Bans come with free cleaning and adjustments for life and a year warranty.
Better known for shirts than sunglasses, this is about to change with Ben Sherman’s latest offering. These aviators caught our eyes thanks to the lovely colour combination of purple-grey and gun metal silver.
Second pair from Oakley here but we couldn’t resist these frogskins. We love the iridescent violet lenses which are complimented by the matte black frames. Lenses are polarized to filter out the sun’s glare.
Channel the Secret Service agent in you with these stunning pair of Prada glasses. Comes in two colour combinations, grey lenses and black frames (featured) or antique gunmetal and brown frames. Features the iconic Prada brand on a slim-line frame.
Chanel has decided to re-release the classic aviator style but with some serious luxurious additions. There are leather tips on the ends, gold mirrored lenses, and double Chanel logos on each lens. There’s a more feminine looks thanks to the slightly curved brow-bar, and each pair comes with a hard Chanel case, drawstring bag, cleaning cloth and authenticity certificate.
Persol are trail-blazers in Italy, and are renowned for creating luxurious accessories with a modern twist. We love the way they have combined the vintage colours of tortoiseshell and turquoise into a contemporary design. Lenses are 100% UV protected.
Classic pair here from British fashion house Burberry. Stylish combination of grey and greenish grey with a square, wrap around frame. Lovely modern uptake on a timeless design.
Worth forking out for these gorgeous sunglasses from Tom Ford, arguably the most sought after designer thanks to his foray into cinema. Gradient lenses with brown speckled frames and a handy case.
