The Sunglasses Every Man Should Be Wearing This Summer


This is a no brainer! We recommend our Tom Ford sunglasses because first of all they are simply Tom Ford. For those of you who may not be as familiar with Tom Ford, he was the creative director of Gucci for eight years from 1994 to 2004 before starting his own fashion label. Not only is Tom Ford a fashion designer, but a filmmaker as well.

Tom Ford is one of the top fashion designers right now and he is an American designer as well! Our Tom Ford Sunglasses are the perfect accessory to add your summer outfit. Summer is full of outdoor activities and living in Cincinnati, it can get pretty dang sunny here.

You may be asking, what makes Tom Ford better than a classic Ray Ban? Ray Bans can create some stylish sunglasses as well, but we believe they’ve had their past time. You can’t go wrong with a classic aviator or wayfarer from Ray Ban, but Tom Ford knows design, style, and quality unlike anybody else.

We have three top Tom Ford Sunglass favorites that we would love to share with you.

Aviator Sunglasses

The aviator type will always be one of the most iconic and fashionable menswear sunglasses. These sunglasses, once referred to as pilot sunglasses, have been around since 1936. Most menswear fashion styles have been around for a long time and that’s how you know they are classic styles and not a trend piece you have to worry about having an expiration date.

The aviator is great for the guy who wants to be bold with his eyewear and make a statement. The aviator is very masculine with a large and bold frame. With the pilots wearing these sunglasses, they naturally have a bit of a sporty vibe to them.

If you consider yourself pretty masculine and sporty, these are the sunglasses for you.

Wayfarer Sunglasses

These sunglasses are naturally less bold with the smaller frames, lighter toirtuse-shell coloring, and square shape. I would say these sunglasses are made for the guy who has a bit of a goofy side, likes to mix prints and patterns in his style, and have fun with his look!

The squared shape to these sunglasses offer a “smart” look to them. Most traditional glasses are a squared look, so this fashion statement stays true to that design. 

Tortoise-shell is a good look for the man with lighter features. The different design and shades of brown offer a very fun and stylish sunglass.

If you consider yourself a good time, a smart guy, and like to have fun with your fashion, these are the sunglasses for you!

Ian Polarized Sunglasses

These sunglasses are the most feminine out of the three mentioned. They have a soft rounded acetate style, which gives them more of that feminine look. Guys seem to get more turned off when they hear something has a feminine twist to it, but it’s not a bad thing!

Men’s and women's fashion are very well intertwined. Women’s fashion plays off of menswear trends just as much as menswear plays off of women's fashion.

These sunglasses also incorporate the big eyewear trend of tortoise-shell tone. I love the tortoise-shell especially on a pair of sunglasses because when the sunlight hits them, the color really shows off.

This pair of sunglasses is perfect for the guy who is a bit more preppy, clean cut, and put together. These sunglasses would look like great with a nice tailored dark wash jean, and a vneck for the a night out in the Fountain Square. 

Why Tom Ford?

Once you see the price of these sunglasses you may be really wondering what makes Tom Ford so special. With any designer, part of the price is paying for the brand name on the side of the sunglasses.

However, Tom Ford is consistently ahead of the game when it comes to trends. He is known for disrupting the fashion industry because he’s not afraid to mix it up and start creating his own fashion trends. Which is why he made such a positive impact during his time at Gucci. 

Tom Ford is very passionate about making one-of-a-kind premium designs and styles. Without even seeing the designer on your sunnies, everyone in Cincinnati will know you have style just from the look of your sunglasses 15 feet away.
