Special Honors

Jacques Marie Mage Altamont Altan The Jacques Marie Mage Altamont Altan are part of a limited production batch of just 500 units, so the chances of ever bumping into another person wearing the same pair are slim indeed. They are handcrafted in Japan, as is their premium burgundy hard case, and boast a square lenses shape with a double-bar bridge. jacquesmariemage.com

Santos de Cartier ESW00389 With a golden, brushed champagne finish on the metal components, including the matching screws, and genuine calfskin on the bridge and temples, the Santos de Cartier ooze luxury, which they should considering their lofty price tag. They are fitted with grey polarized lenses that have a golden flash and offer class 3 solar protection. cartier.com

Editor's Notes

April 22, 2020:

We realize fashion is a personal thing, so with that in mind we did our best to include a wide variety of different styles in this list of designer sunglasses, while also keeping a keen eye for quality. We are of the belief that if you are going to spend this amount of money on a pair of shades, they should not only be well built, but also have a premium look.

The refined gentleman will probably prefer something like the Hugo Boss 0994/f/s, Ray-Ban Clubmaster Square, or Tom Ford WHYAT FT 0709. None of these are overly flashy, yet they certainly show onlookers you have discerning taste and an eye for style. Plus, while they do have branding on them, it isn't overly prominent, so you won't feel like a walking billboard. Any of these would work just as well at a professional outdoor event as they would at a trendy yacht party.

If you like your accessories to be a bit more flashy, the oversized Prada 64TS, steampunk-influenced Cazal 644, or extravagant Versace VE2163 might be more up your alley. Each of these will no doubt be a statement-making part of your outfit. While you could probably pair them with business attire if needed, they are better reserved for casual situations, like enjoying some sunset drinks at a downtown rooftop lounge.

Those who are equally concerned with adding clarity and vibrancy to their view as style, should look to the Oakley Deadbolt, which feature the company's Prizm Sapphire lenses. They have an untraditional design that fashion aficionados will probably find very appealing. The Oliver Peoples Gregory Peck Crystal are also somewhat unconventional due to their clear acetate frame, which really allows the indigo color of their photochromic lenses to stand out. They are digitally surfaced to enhance their clarity, too.

If none of the options here suit your preference, you may be interested in checking out our list of the best Ray-Ban or polarized sunglasses for men, which both include a few more sporty styles not well represented here.
