How to Choose Designer Glasses for Men

Eyewear was originally intended as optic aids and were at the time classed as painfully unfashionable “medical appliances”. However, nowadays glasses are considered less of correctional devices, and more of outfit-enhancing trappings. Presently, there are plenty of options on the market, including neutral frames, thickset and boldly patterned styles.

With such a wide range of options on offer, you can easily fall foul of fashion and get yourself spending a small fortune on something poorly crafted. With designer eyewear, you can be sure that you’ll wear them for longer, and that they’ll look great with everything you dress in.

As a man, you could have a great suit, or a great pair of shoes but we all know people first connect with your face. Actually, eyewear can’t only define who you are, but also who you want to be. This is why it is crucial to find the right pair of designer glasses.

So How Do You Determine the Best Designer Eyewear to Buy?

One Too Many?

When it comes to men’s eyewear, there is no rule that you should have one pair only. There are some eyewear fans who own a few pairs. During the day, when they are more casually dressed, they’ll wear colourful frames, like the Ray-Ban RX5206 (2/2), Prada PR 16MV (1/2) or Emporio Armani EA3001. Then they’ll switch to muted spectacles if they need to dress in a suit or tuxedo, like Dolce & Gabbana DG3205 Urban or Mont Blanc MB0545.

Although acetate frames are everywhere, you’ll find adequate selection to make various statements. For instance, black rectangles indicate seriousness or sternness, such as the Ray-Ban RX7043 or Tom Ford FT5295.

There is a wide selection of eyewear that you can pick from, ranging from plastic and wire to rimless frames.

Plastic Potential

Plastic framed glasses are available in all shapes and sizes, with smaller, thinner and overbearing overall frames.

They are not only confined to black or brown; there are additional shades for the frame that are quite popular. These include tortoise shell, as well as crystallized and nearly transparent tones. Gucci has a large selection of these designs of eyeglasses, like the GG 1020 and GG 1056. Although the plastic has a transparent, clear effect, their base colour can be black, brown, beige, or even grey.

There are even two- or three-toned plastic frames, whose frame and arms have different colours, such as BOSS Hugo Boss BOSS 0643 or Gucci GG 1077. Plastic eyewear is known to be durable. The only downside is that they may not be relatively comfortable or flexible.

Rimless Regatta

When it comes to flexibility, rimless eyeglasses happen to be the most flexible glasses available on the market. They literally don’t have rims, and their arms and bridge are hinged together into the actual lens. This way the glasses are actually held together, and although they look fragile, they are not. Because they are ultra light, you can even forget you are wearing glasses, just like these Oakley OX3122 Keel, BOSS Hugo Boss BOSS 0435, Ray-Ban RX8724.

When it comes to style, you can select the shape that matches your face perfectly. You can also have the lenses cut to measure and pick different metallic shades for the temples (or arms). The most practical option is always grey or silver. Titanium arms guarantee high quality, durability and flexibility as they allow you to bend the glasses back and forth. The Tesla Pure Titanium T5605 or Porsche Design P8145 are amongst this specific eyewear.
