Sunnydaze

Posted on

As the days get longer and the temperature rises, the parks and patios beckon; and what better to go with a picnic or pint than a great pair of sunglasses?  We have a wide selection of new and vintage frames to suit any budget or prescription and protect your eyes from the sunnydaze of spring.

Ray-Ban

One of the most recognizable makers around, we carry both new and vintage Ray Bans in a great many styles including: Aviator, Wayfarer, Clubmaster, Gatsby, and Justin (yes, that Justin).  Frames start at $180.00 plus lenses in a number of colours and finishes.

This pair of vintage Ray-Ban Gatsby Style 4’s goes for $420.00 plus lenses.

Persol

We have a variety of Persol frames — again, both new and vintage — but perhaps none more recognizable than Persol 714 SM: The Steve McQueen Special Edition ($495.00 to $540.00 plus lenses).

“This folding 714 model, and in particular the version with the light havana frame and crystal blue lenses, Steve McQueen™ discovered an accessory that went on to accompany him on set but also in his private life, renowned for his love for bikes and racing cars.

Confident and refined, the model reflects the rebellious character of the actor, someone who loved to take risks and boasted an inimitable style. Persol celebrates this elective affinity with a Special Edition: the Persol 714 SM pays tribute to the timeless hero, Steve McQueen™.”

Lens Options

Whether eyeglasses or sunglasses, prescription or non, we offer a variety of different lens options.

Transitions:  A convenient option for those who aren’t interested in changing their glasses every time the sun comes out.  All-in-one for the win!

Clip-ons:  Like your glasses but wish they were sunglasses?  Never fear!  We can offer custom-made clip-ons for most frames.  Have your cake and eat it too!

Polarized:  Polarized lenses protect your eyes from UV rays while also reducing glare.  Double trouble!
