Mens sunglasses are one of the essential ways to complete an outfit. Yes, you must only wear them when it’s actually sunny (seriously, some people need reminding), but they add an extra dose of personal style to any ensemble. Another one of our favorite accessories for men is obviously the wrist watch. And when you pair the perfect shades with a watch that’s just right, you’ve got style gold.
These Linda Farrow Luxe yellow gold frame aviators are a great foil for this two-tone Rolex Datejust 16233. Squared off lenses give a strong structure to the frames, and black arms are only lined with gold on the inside to balance out the opulent frames.
A pair of Garrett Leight California Optical d-frames plays it classically cool – with a twist. Cafe-au-lait acetate adds warmth to the black lenses, and careful attention to detail elevates the frames. This Rolex Daytona 16519 Zenith balances a stark white and steel dial with the warm burnish of a tanned leather strap.
Thom Browne‘s take on aviators demonstrates luxe minimalism. The profile of the shades are lightweight but extra touches like a tortoiseshell bridge and Browne’s signature striped (in lieu of a logo) make these sunglasses luxurious. They’re the perfect match for a watch that holds nothing back, like this Breitling Windrider Chronomat B30011. Two-tone yellow gold and stainless steel keep the bracelet elegant, while the dial features a warm grey texture with blue chronographs.
