>Persol sunglasses are hot. So hot that my editor jokingly worries I'm going to swipe his pair. (In our office, things sometimes go missing!) Jokes aside, it's a valid fear, because they're awesome shades, both in looks and function.
They have a uniquely Persol character (that bridge!), with subtly stylish touches, like metal accents on the hinges. And being crafted in Italy, the specs have crystal-tempered lenses, which make for a really clear lens. Some models (like these) fold up so you can slip tuck them away safely and compactly. At the end of the day, they'll run you about $350-$400. Just be careful that your friends don't steal them from you.
