It’s official: Jaeger have now dropped their range of men’s sunglasses just in time for the cascades of sunshine that have been hotly anticipated for the first three months of the year. The UV may or may not eventually arrive properly, but it is always good to be prepared. Even better is to be prepared in style. Cue my first proper Spring/Summer lookbook of the year.
Look one keeps things clean; the classic combination of a Wool Gingham Slim Suit and White Ottoman T-shirt paired with these Mick Sunglasses. As someone with a lightly larger head, the rounded aviator frames full cover the face, while the exposed metal frame gives them a slightly more rugged look. Aviators, in my opinion at least, should be the staple of any wardrobe and these are a great choice.
For look two, the layers are pared back and I channel my inner-Fifties persona. Think Danny from Grease; the White Ottoman T-shirt and Black Slim Fit Trousers paired with these Jimi Sunglasses. This unisex pair of shades are great to throw on to add a different colour and texture; the tortoiseshell finish is, and always will be, a timeless classic.
Look three channels all things grey and is particularly suited for the cooler months of March and April. A Grey Linen Overcoat sits on top of this Stitch Sweater, completed with a pair of Cotton Slim Trousers. The texture is all in the outfit itself, and so these Freddie Sunglasses keep things clean and simple on the face. I love a good pair of half-frame sunglasses and these feel sturdy and durable.
For my final look, I’ve kept the colours fairly neutral and opted for this pair of Cooper Sunglasses to cover my face. The lovechild of traditional sunglasses and aviators, they are definitely suited for larger, rounded faces and the solid black frame is understated yet smart. Of the four pairs, these are probably the most versatile, but work perfectly with the blues in the Wool Donkey Jacket and the Chainmail Stitch Sweater. A pair of Formal Green Chinos finish off the look.
