Thankfully, men have graduated from the eyesores of the sunglasses world: the £5 petrol station throwaways, the bleach white wraparounds – you know the suspects.
Faces are being framed with more panache and more substance than ever. Translation: it’s time to up your eyewear game.
Amidst the wash of optical choices, we can heartily recommend Eye Respect’s new collection. Off the back of their excellent Oliver Spencer collaboration, the standalone A/W collection is a brilliant melange of Anglo-Italian influences.
The glasses are London-designed, then hand cut and assembled in the Veneto region in the Italian north.
All you really need to know, though, is that they’re sturdy, they’re sharp, they’ll last – and all at the right price.
