There’s a reason these sunglasses have a near-perfect rating — they look great on everybody. The rounded wire frame with an angular acetate browline has a lifting effect and flatters every face shape.

This reviewer vouches for their quality: “I've had mine [for six months] and I, admittedly, am not careful with them. I drop them, I chew on [them], and I wear them constantly and often hang them on strings or my shirt. There's not a scratch on them, the screws aren't coming loose and because they're the same as the day I bought them, I no longer have ‘hundred-dollar-sunglasses’ shame,” they write. “There's so much confidence that comes with wearing them I will happily buy them again on the day that I lose or sit on them.”

“Awesome,” says a five-star reviewer. “These are indeed authentic. They come with the leather case, cleaning cloth and the manufacturer’s note. These glasses are lightweight and showcase the classic wayfarer look.”
