As the saying goes, your eyes are the window to your soul, so treat them well with a sleek pair of sunnies. Especially now that we’re coming into summer and the sun is out blazing (most days). A good pair will protect you from damaging UV rays, be durable, and look the part too. Check out some of the best men’s sunglasses that we’ve got our eye on right now…
Norwegian brand Kaibosh’s take on the classic pilot shape, the Sodermalm Scenario sunnies are a unique option this season. Their minimal frame puts the deep, shaded lens front and centre and also makes them a really good choice for a range of occasions.
Created as an homage to Bali’s cultural centre, the Ubud sunglasses by Sunday Somewhere feature a handmade frame with a dark brown gradient lens. They’re ideal if you’re torn between your love of tortoiseshell and black frames, combining the two for a modern and sleek pair of sunglasses.
With a classic D-frame shape, Pacifico Optical’s Yacht Master sunglasses are crafted from premium materials sourced from Italy. Their coated lens reduces glare while an exterior coating prevents scratching. The sunnies have great versatility, thanks also to the Yacht Master Clip, which are a detachable mirrored lens. They make it easy to achieve multiple looks from the sunnies, plus they block additional light.
When you’ve been making sunglasses for as long as Ray-Ban has, you know how to do it well. Even their more modern designs, like the Round 51, hit the mark in terms of high-quality and style. Details like the silicone nose pads in the Round 51s go a long way in creating a good pair of sunnies that you’ll want to wear for a long time.
The highly unique Noj by AM Eyewear are a great alternative to more classic styles this season. Their leather detailing gives them a nice touch while gold anti-reflective coating helps to reduce glare. AM Eyewear use Italian-made Zeiss lenses in their designs, meaning they’re all highly protective and of utmost quality.
Remmy by Raen is the kind of shape that would suit most faces. A modern take on a classic design, featuring Carl Zeiss CR-39 lenses, which offers 100% UV protection. The frames are crafted from Zyl acetate, which is a renewable resource made of wood pulp and natural cotton fibres. They’re a great option if you’re eco-minded.
The collaboration between New York-based eyewear label Moscot and record label Future Classic has resulted in a unique re-working of the classic Lemtosh frame. It puts a modern twist on the refined design of the round frame sunnies with a new Matte Blonde colourway.
