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.
Since 1917 Persol has used sophisticated manufacturing techniques to ensure the eyewear you purchase is comfortable, well-fitting and on trend. With style and comfort their primary focus, Persol spent their early manufacturing days perfecting a comfortable and improved fit. A world first, Meflecto saw the industry take notice. The first ever flexible arm stem that vastly improves comfort. To follow was Victor Flex. Based on the Meflecto principles this technology saw a flexible bridge which vastly improves fit on larger acetate models. When wearing Persol sunglasses or optical frame the quality of Italian handmade eyewear is ever present. The Meflecto system has been perfected across a huge array of the collection. Should you be unfortunate to have a larger head or irregular face shape, Persol will fit better than almost all other brands.
From a fashion perspective Persol is a player. The world of showbiz can make or break a fashion brand. Not Persol. Persol is rarely over-hyped. Even though it is popular with the rich and famous. Legends such as Greta Garbo and Steve McQueen chose Persol for everyday life and the story remains the same in current times, movie stars, celebs and even royalty love their Persols. Retro designs, classic sweeping lines and contemporary bridge construction defines the current collections. Colors remain understated, havana-browns and shades of black are the most popular frame colours whilst a classic brown and green tint are now equally on par with their contemporary yellow and blue counterparts. Persol often make the top ten sunglasses list from our EyeWearThese stylists, the Italian flair is simply hard to beat. On trend with amazing build quality, Persol is a perfect choice of eyewear.
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.
