Johnny Depp and his Sunglasses from Rum Diary

Pirates of the Caribbean star Johnny Depp stars alongside Aaron Eckhart and Amber Heard in the new film “Rum Diary”.

Brief synopsis from IMDB.

Paul Kemp (Johnny Depp) is a freelance journalist who finds himself at a critical turning point in his life while writing for a run-down newspaper in the Caribbean. Paul is challenged on many levels as he tries to carve out a more secure niche for himself amidst a group of lost souls all bent on self-destruction.

As we can see in the trailer, Johnny Depp is featured wearing a classic pair of semi-rimless sunglasses.  Unfortunately we’re unable to identify who the designer of this stylish pair is although there are rumours on the internet that they are by a French designer from the 1950’s called “Raleigh“.  Looking at the style I can see a brand like Oliver Peoples offering a very similar style in the future, we’ll have to wait and see if they bring anything similar to the table.

If you’re looking for something very similar to the style Johnny Depp wears, why not try these Ray-ban RB4109 Olympian Sunglasses.

  1. I believe the sunglasses are made by Sol Amor, they are a French version of the aviators. My dad actually gave me a pair that he used as his civilian sunglasses back in the 70's

  2. the glasses that Jonny Depp is wearing in his new movie Rum Diary are a pair of 1965 Renauld sunglasses called spectators with Orama IV lenses ,that cost at that time a wopping $12.95. TWA approved thier use by flight personnel because it gave them 180 degree distortion free vision. Here is a poster picture of the ad form 1965.

  3. Not so sure they are the Renaulds.  I own a pair of sunglasses that are identical to the ones Depp wears in the movie.  I bought a few years back from an antique store for $1.  I started researching them because of the movie.  I've heard a few sources say they think that they are the renaulds, but I can not find the exact pair anywhere… Only the silver with green lenses and the yellow 'ski glasses.'  If you look close, the Renaulds have a small piece in over the bridge of the nose that Depp's glasses dont have.  Plus I can't find a Renauld mark on mine anywhere…

  4. they look very similar to the glasses supplied by shell to craig breedlove and his spirit of america land speed record team at bonneville in ’62 , been looking for these for ages.

  5. I would say they are almost identical to A pair of renauld glasses I found at A garage sale. mine are yellow but the lenses and frame are A perfect match.
