Who says glasses have to be nerdy or boring? Eyewear has now become an important accessory, and some even wear them without prescription just to appear more fashionable. Looking good and perfect vision should go hand in hand, and if you want a pair of well-made glasses, here are some brands to consider.

Oliver Peoples

Sported by stars such as Johnny Depp and Jennifer Aniston, Oliver Peoples is an American luxury eyewear brand. The Larrabee, one of their most popular models, comes in a unique shade of denim and was seen on Andrew Garfield in The Amazing Spiderman. Its lightweight acetate frame gives you a feeling like you’re not wearing glasses at all.


A brand in existence since 1915 and gaining its own following, Moscot has been seen on the likes of Forest Whitaker and Ant-Man Paul Rudd himself. Looking effortlessly cool is as simple as slipping on a pair of Emis glasses in black. Silver column rivets on the square rim and arms add subtle detailing, which stands out from the rest.


Innovation meets fashion with Lindberg’s full-rim frames. Crafted entirely out of ultra-light titanium and pure ingenuity, their minimalist designs feature a signature screwless hinge which prevents loosening. The flexible yet strong and thin wire frames accentuate the contours of your face in a subtle way—even Simon Cowell owns a pair himself.

Tom Davies

If you’re going bespoke then look no further than Tom Davies. Their Natural Horn collection is sheer textured optical art with curvatures that exude a sexy smart appeal. If you want to go incognito like Henry Cavill in Batman v Superman, this bespectacled look does the trick.

Bailey Nelson

Go retro with the Bailey Nelson Bronte in mahogany. Its blend of dual acetate and lower metal fittings is reminiscent of Don Johnson’s days in Miami Vice (Ferrari not included).
