Steve McQueen Sunglasses: "Style EYE-con"

I actually stumbled upon a pair of these bad boys in the flesh recently!

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."

They 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,

Follow me Around Boston!

  1. The sun’s ultraviolet rays are most damaging between 10am and 2pm. Even under overcast skies, we should protect our eyes, as the rays of the sun do pass through clouds. And when under a shade, we should still wear sunglasses, because UV rays are reflected by sand and water.
