The 7 Coolest Sunglasses Brands to Buy Right Now
It's nice to be loyal to classic sunglasses brands such as Ray-Ban and Persol. But, every once in a while, it's also fun to dip your toe into different styles. Whether you're digging the current thick-rimmed trend or you want to try out nostalgic '90s-style sunnies, these sunglasses brands will definitely have what you're looking for. Here are the coolest sunglasses brands to buy right now.
1| Native Sons
Founded by American designer Tommy O'Gara, Native Sons combines O'Gara's eclectic design, past experience in Thom Browne and Dita, and Japanese craftsmanship. The brand makes some of the best thick-rimmed glasses with faintly tinted lenses.
2| Garrett Leight
If you like Oliver Peoples, there's a huge chance you'll like Garrett Leight. That's because it's the brand of the son of Oliver Peoples' founder. Compared to his father's brand, Garrett Leight caters to a younger clientele, thanks to all the cool, subtle details the brand's eyewear has.
3| Thierry Lasry
By no means is Thierry Lasry a new brand. It used to be known as PSY's (of "Oppa Gangnam Style"-fame) choice of sunglasses. But, it's definitely experiencing a resurgence from its collab with Rhude, as well as its thick-rimmed style designs.
4| Gentle Monster
Want to go full-on trendy? No other brand will do like Gentle Monster. Name it, the Korean brand has it all from huge sunglasses, '90s-style barely there frames, and more.
From utilitarian silhouettes to minimalist design, it's clear Japanese aesthetic has taken over men's fashion as of late. And the same goes when it comes to sunglasses. At the top of it all is Matusda, the brand that goes back to 1967. Need more convincing? It's Robert Downey Jr.-era Iron Man's choice brand, too.
6| DITA Eyewear
Launched in 1995, DITA has come to be known for innovative, high-quality crafted eyewear. The brand's unique signature includes large, vintage-style sunnies that suit larger face shapes best.
7| Cutler and Gross
There's always a classic yet contemporary feel to Culter and Gross' style. Because of that, the brand's designs will look good on you, whether you're dressed up or dressed down.
