Every man needs a solid pair of sunglasses. It's a realisation that we often make when it's way too late: on holiday, as the sun beats down on our eyeballs, where the only viable option is a pair of useless beach shop knock-offs that last all of two minutes.
Well, that stops right now. In the second episode of our Get Dressed video series, Esquire's Style Director Charlie Teasdale has selected his best picks of 2019, from foldable Persol classics to sport-influenced Prada specs, to fit every face shape.
ON YOUR BIKE
These are a big statement-making fashion piece, so balance them with a muted tonal outfit or tailoring for some juxtaposition. They’re 80s-styled high-tech vibes, they’re comfortable, and they’re cool.
KEEP IT CLASSIC
Wayfarers are the timeless size-fits-all sunglasses. Literally everyone suits them, and they’ve got serious style pedigree. They’re essentially unchanged since the mid-century, and for good reason.
Made famous by Biggie Smalls himself, these slim Versace sunglasses are the perfect way to get in on the nineties trend without going too bug-eyed.
A halfway point between spectacles and sunglasses – think of them as a style accessory with a mid-60s Mad Men feel. The duality between these out-there shades and a more conservative wedding outfit will work nicely too.
GET IN THE FOLD
Never lose your pricey sunglasses on holiday again by investing in a foldable pair of classics that pop right in your pocket.
