Accessories Spotlight: Sunglasses

4 19 2012

Men don’t have a lot of accessories—watches, bags, sunglasses are the big three.  So, it’s understandable if they decide to dive into the deep end.  For the obsessed—you know who you are—sunglasses are always in season, but as the weather turns warmer then it’s really time for action.

The latest sunglasses strike a very nice balance.  Do you know Garrett Leight? This promising newcomer has a way with frames, they’re always more distinctive than they have to be.  A nearly-clear pair with brown lenses are looking very smart, while his “Harding” model, based on a pair that belonged to playwright Arthur Miller, are a perfectly updated classic.  For men who are building their collection, Garrett’s a must have.

Mr. Leight descends from sunglass royalty, his father founded the indispensable Oliver Peoples, whose brown two-tones have the right amount of finesse.  Blue lenses give Persols an added complexity, and an olive pair of Gucci frames can’t go wrong on any beach.

Sunglasses are inherently optimistic, they’re about warm weather and looking skyward.  So inject a bit of sophistication into your outdoor life, and enjoy the season while you’re at it.Men’s Sunglasses are available on the Men’s First Floor.  For more details, call 212 339 3311.
