The Facts: Steve McQueen wore Persol Sunglasses both on screen in The Thomas Crown Affair
and off screen as well. A 1996 ad campaign by Persol Sunglasses
capitalizes on this fact. 10 years after this ad was run an actual pair
of Steve's own Persol's would sell for $60,000 at auction! Screen star
and ultimately type-casted bad ass: Steve McQueen as Persol would say, "Legends Live Forever."
can make even the most uncouth seem smooth as a spy! They are also
functional and iconic because of their folding capabilities.#NBD. They
also cost enough for James Bond to buy several, but not the average
part-time Spy. You need to be a full-time spy.
Beep beep goodbye,
