Persol-Timeless Eyewear made popular by ‘King of Cool’


If you’re a fan of the late actor Steve McQueen you’re most likely familiar with eyewear icon Persol.  In circulation since 1917, McQueen helped popularize Persol for the 1960’s and future generations.  Persol sunglasses were a huge favorite with pilots and race car drivers.  When Steve wasn’t making memorable films, he could many times be found immersed in one of his favorite pastimes, racing. It made perfect sense to spot him around the motorsports scene wearing his Persols.


It all bsupreme_arrowegan in 1917 when Berry optical owner Giuseppe Ratti began crafting frames and lenses targeting athletes and pilots.  Ratti leaned toward sunglasses thus the name Persol which loosely translated means “for the sun”.  Persol patented the Meflecto system, one of the first spring hinge temple designs.  Most models then as well as now are adorned with Persol’s unmistakable “Supreme Arrow” located on the temple hinges.

Persol’s eventual United States debut was in 1962. Italian optical frame and sunglass powerhouse Luxottica now owns the brand.  Luxottica’s high standards ensure lasting quality for the timeless brand.  Unsurpassed designs along with superb acetates and metals define contemporary Persol.

Our Simply Eyeglasses favorite top pick Persol sunglass model would have to be the PO3110S in color Striped Brown for it’s timeless look and craftsmanship. It can be viewed and purchased at the following link:persol
