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.

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.
