These days a pair of wayfarers is pretty dime-a-dozen — though that's not meant to diminish the classic style of a timeless pair of frames. Stand out the next time you want to block the sun's rays with a pair of Ray-Ban Wayfarer Leather Sunglasses ($300). Made in the retro silhouette that's been around since 1956, these sunglasses have been updated for a new generation with genuine calf leather frames. Available in black or brown calf leather, with brown or green neophan polarized lenses.
In honor of Beck's recent musical release Songreader — a book of sheet music, not an album, meant to be played by fans, not listened to — Warby Parker has released a limited edition pair of frames called the Carmichael. These Beck x Warby Parker Eyeglasses ($95) are available in two colorways and two variations: rootbeer and crystal colors in both eyeglasses and sunglasses. They feature a round lens and a keyhole bridge, lending a style they describe as a cross between bookish and bohemian. As usual, the lenses are made from impact-resistant polycarbonate, while the frames are made from high-quality cellulose acetate. No matter what you choose, they're the perfect glasses to wear when you sit down with your instrument of choice, read, and play.
What's the best way to improve on the classic look of a pair of aviator sunglasses? Wrap it them gold, of course. These Ray-Ban Aviator Solid Gold Sunglasses ($3,200) — an exclusive edition limited to only 1,200 pairs, numbered and engraved — feature frames made entirely from pure 18-karat gold. They come with polarized Neophan Green lenses that produce the most natural vision possible in a pair of sunglasses, creating clarity and comfort without modifying the way you see colors. Each pair ships with a brown leather carrying case worthy of protecting such a unique set of eyewear.
