The humble typewriter receives a tribute from Persol. The detail and extra care in production needed within the time of the typewriter sits perfectly in the Persol brand. The Persol 3110s are no different, and echo this beautifully. If you are looking for design, style and a top quality product, you get it all within the 3110s. Like all Persol products, the Persol 3110s is handmade in the Lauriano Factory in Italy, like they always have been. Therefore, guarantees a high level of craftsmanship and time has gone into making each product. It also ensures that each is unique in its own way.

Persol have incorporated the typewriter into the 3110s in many subtle ways. Each line and groove is created because of the influence of the typewriter. Firstly the bridge features grooves on the front, created by lasers. These replicate the typing keys on a typewriter. The color of the metal used for the bridge changes with the color of the frame. Each frame will contrast cohesively to add a gorgeous design element. The temple tips also feature these grooves. Instead, these grooves represent the typing bars on a typewriter. Overall these subtle changes to a classic retro design embellish a powerful minimalistic design.

For long days in the sun, be that on holiday, on a long walk or driving, these Persol sunglasses should provide ultimate comfort. The frame material is acetate which is well known for its strength and lightweight properties. The bridge and nosepad arms are a thin light metal which will be lighter on the nose. Therefore the frame won’t sit heavy on the face. The nosepads themselves are adjustable. Thus allowing you to position them to your nose exactly, giving a personalized fit.
