Take a sunglasses brand that is sophisticated, elegant yet understated. Then mix a star-studded array of movie star endorsements and you have Persol, a favourite of EyeWearThese. This leading eyewear brand is founded on simple promises, anticipating trends and styles that are perfect for every look whilst remaining comfortable when worn all day. Persol Sunglasses elevate a wearers eyewear style through a combination of timeless styling, hand-finished, personalized frames enriched with color.
The name Persol comes from the Italian, “per il sole”. This translated is “for the sun”. Making Persol sunglasses perfect for those hot summer days. Much like Ray-Ban, Persol initially aimed to make pilot’s lives that much easier in the skies. Soon, drivers and motorcyclists adorned Persol sunglasses. The 50’s see Persol create sunglasses specifically for Turin tram drivers too! Nasa even worked with Persol. This shows how truly versatile Persol products are, and have such a following due to their years of innovation and truly impressive quality.
Sunglasses for a large head? Persol have the answer:
A question asked often from our online customers “I have a large head, what sunglasses will fit me?” If you are looking for a quality frame, superb lenses and timeless style then Persol frames are a great starting point if you need a larger frame.
Persol’s Meflecto flexible arms coupled with Victor Flex which flex across the bridge are unique to Persol and make a staggering difference on a larger frame.
Larger frames are often rigid and unforgiving, not for Persol, the flexible frame allows for a vastly improved and comfortable fit.
Let’s talk style. Opting for the metal frames will probably disappoint. This is due to the fit. The metal frames are perfect for an average adult, but if you are looking for a larger fit, look to the full acetate plastic frames with the Victor Flex bridge. They have several vertical slots in the nose bridge and are easy to spot. The rectangular shapes are best, they sit nice and comfortable, just look for a deeper lens (top to bottom) if you have a long face or bushy eyebrows that need covering.
