If you got caught out by the sun over Easter Bank Holiday, like us you’ll probably feel like it’s time you updated your wardrobe. And after you’ve sorted your summer jacket, you’re going to need a pair of new shades. With that in mind, here’s some top tips on buying men’s sunglasses for Spring/Summer 2019.
Round Men’s Sunglasses for Summer 2019
A Round-lensed shade is something we’ve seen a big revival of in the last year or two, and they can add some real playfulness to any outfit. We prefer larger glasses but there are also plenty of smaller lenses out there which will have the same effect. We’re also a fan of a feature frame when it comes to round-lenses.
Something like these Urban Sun shades from Silhouette would do just the trick. The rounded frame is constructed from titanium, meaning its lightweight as well as being durable. It’s also hypoallergenic, so it sits comfortably on the bridge. £190
Pilot Men’s Sunglasses for Summer 2019
The main style you’ll be seeing this summer (and probably every summer forever more) is unsurprisingly the iconic Pilot. The thinly framed, reflective classics are showing no signs of fading into history thanks to their ability to suit basically any outfit and every occasion, and therefore every Joe.
We’d love to be different but you really can’t go wrong with a classic Ray-Ban Aviator. We love this Classic model which features a gold frame and a lens colour of your choice. Each lens comes with optimum visual clarity and 100% UV protection. £127
Square Men’s Sunglasses for Summer 2019
For something subtle which still offers some sophistication, a square-lensed shade should be worth a look this summer. Annoyingly the warmer weather doesn’t mean you can skip work but the right pair of squared sunglasses can add some real panache to your work outfit.
We like these Heinz sunglasses from neubau. Designed, developed and manufactured in Austria, these shades are perfect for those office to bar days where versatility and comfort are key. The lens on the Heinz is made from a super light, high-impact resistant polycarbonate, which means breaking them should thankfully be difficult! £125
Performance Men’s Sunglasses for Summer 2019
Though European ski season might be coming to an end, there are still some slopes across the continent to be hit in the summer. Not only that, it’s also one of the best times of year to get on the saddle and do some cycling. That means you’re going to need something both functional and durable.
adidas have been produced some superb sport eyewear in recent years and this season we like the evolver 3D_F. The first 3D printed pair of sunglasses from adidas, these lightweight shades are packed with features such as snap nose pads and snap hinges. The diamond grid temple design also keeps you sweat free where it matters. Available in Olive, Black, White, and Grey. £260
Semi-Rimmed/Rimless Men’s Sunglasses for Summer 2019
A trend we’ve seen in the last couple of years which looks set to continue in the warmer months in 2019, a pair of Semi-Rimmed/Rimless sunglasses can add some edge to even the most standard pair of shades, which is why Joes are opting for the style more than ever.
We couldn’t really run a sunglasses feature without giving Oakley a mention and we absolutely love these Frogskins Lites. Sporting a classic semi-rimless frame design, it features Oakley’s leading performance technology, including Prizm lenses which provide unprecedented control of light transmission. £92
The Flannel Shirt is one of man’s most versatile garments. Ideal for when you need an extra layer on those mild spring mornings, it can also be worn as a top layer on breezy summer days. So with that in mind, here’s the Best Flannel Shirts around in Spring/Summer 2019 from some of our favourite labels.
