Hardy Amies Glasses

If you’re a fan of Hardy Amies’ impeccable British tailoring, chances are you’ll admire the Savile Row stalwart’s new eyewear collection, too.

Inspired by the dapper post-war tailor himself — each frame is named after a street in west London’s Maida Vale, where he lived — the collection is subtle, masculine and keeps the focus on classic shapes with considered details.

The preppy Widley (above) is our pick, combining a very fashionable rounded shape with a titanium keyhole bridge. Wear in tortoiseshell with a grey double-breasted Hardy Amies suit and you’re good to go.

Essential because: During the Second World War, Amies served in British Intelligence and later with the Special Operations Executive, so these are specs with a serious heritage.
