It’s a new year. It’s time to look at getting new glasses. We look at the best investments in eyewear for men in 2013.
When it comes to glasses, men are in luck in 2013 as there is an eclectic mix of great new styles available for those investing in new shades.
The four key themes for 2013 in men’s eyewear are:
Retro: Look out for glasses with a retro and handcrafted feel such as a leather look and stitching with the use of ‘rustic’ type materials. The Red or Dead 27 funky street smart specs are a great combination of plastic and metal. Offering a dual feel to these popular frames, the wide tapered glossy arms carry a neat striped design. €149
Minimalist: Back to basics glasses with a simple feel are also in for 2013. Look out for metal with a clear look. The semi-rimless designer specs from Jasper Conran (39) provide a crisp light choice for men seeking an unobtrusive frame. Black metal trims the temples and the nose bridge and is continued on to the super slim arms. €189
Colour: Colour is back again this year with interesting features such as stand out trims. Designed especially for men, the Timberland range combines classic colours with contemporary detailing. The TB1177 are available in dark green with a yellow candy stripe. €189
Vintage modern: The Vintage Modern look pairs vintage with modern provoking a sense of irony. The Gok Wan 12 glassses have a glossy plastic acetate finish and are a modern take on the retro tortoiseshell classic. €149
All these key men’s looks are available now at Specsavers where you can order tinted prescription lenses and UV filter as Pa art of your deal in designer glasses.
