The Best Alternative Sunglasses For Men

Style

Sunglasses are the most important thing to choose in the summer. Who cares if you're worked out or not? All that really matters is the furniture on your face. And these bad boys are going to make a serious impression? Do it, do it...

Hot Futures Cosmic Rebel Berry Sunglasses – £105

On some faces, these might look ridiculous, but if the planets align and you can pull them off, you’ll basically be the most sexually charismatic person on earth. Especially if you time travel to 3022.

Ray-Ban Wayfarer Colour Mix – £137

Absolutely love these new spins on the classic Wayfarer, adding in your own custom colours to express yourself or whatever. Very nice spin on the obvious to bring you a bit of an edge as you burn meat on a BBQ.

Arnette x Post Malone Acetate Sunglasses – £47

Post Malone isn’t very good but these sunglasses he’s put his name to are pretty damn natty. Don’t cover your face in tattoos like him, either, let the glasses do the talking. They will say: this guy’s a god.

Good Times Blue Sporty Sunglasses – £21

Delicate things, but a joy for those looking to move beyond trad styles. Equally good for wearing on a jetski or pushing your kid on a swing. Depends on your definition of sport doesn’t it? We’d include snacking.

A Better Feeling – BOLU Emerald Green – £160

You’re not going to be missed in these. In fact, you may be called upon to fight aliens on a different planet. We love these more than pie.

Saint Laurent Sunrise Rectangular Acetate Sunglasses – £280

At the pricier-end as you’d expect from Saint Laurent, but if you have the money these are ultra-cool insta-rock n roll star buys that you probably would never wear for fear of losing them.

H&M Round Sunglasses in Pink – £6.99

Fun classics with a psychedelic twist for the Lennon fans out there. As a bonus the pink should match your sunburn, your rose wine and your panting tongue, for the full glorious Englishman-in-summer look.

Burberry BE4291 Sunglasses – £135

Wearing these is to suggest you were forced to watch Back to the Future 2 on repeat while locked in some Taliban stronghold for 5 years. Or that you’re actually young and cool and can deliver the face that these glasses demand; perfect, pinched, peachy.

Ray-Ban Unisex Oval Sunglasses in Bordeaux Havana – £128

Another off-the-beaten-track Ray-Ban pick; these beauties will bring a bit of Cuban swagger to your Hawaiian-shirt heavy outfits this summer. Stay away from a life of crime, though, OK? We’re not having people come complaining to us about drug deals gone wrong…

Loewe x Paula’s Ibiza Rectangular Frame Acetate Sunglasses – £280

Do you remember that support character in the film Mannequin called Hollywood? Yep. Annoying, right? But you don’t have to be.

Alexander McQueen Sunglasses AM 0299S – £199

Love these. Begging to be worn with a formal suit, and indeed to be kept on in board meetings, and indeed when being escorted from the building.

Versace Men’s Irregular Sunglasses in Transparent Grey – £243

These are deliberately asymmetrical, which we guess is done in order to anticipate you sitting on them by accident and ruining them. If they’re ruined already, then no harm done. Anyway, these are proper Mad Max: Fury Road glasses, and as such need to be on your face.

Tom Ford Bailey Square Sunglasses – £275

Proper luxe level here from Mr Ford, but what goes around comes around – meaning, invest in these and you’ll get a pay-rise, pull a billionaire, having strangers throw pound coins at your head etc.

Prive Revaux Commando Sunglasses – £39

Classic aviators turned into beacons of excess. Beautiful. In a garish, too-many-margaritas kind of way.

Ray-Ban State Street – £147

One for John Waters fans, heading full throttle into the trash aesthetic and coming out the other side with a polyamory summer you’ll never forget.
