The Persol 714 folding sunglasses are quite easily the most classic and sought after Persol ever made! Made legend by Steve McQueen both on screen, in movies such as the “Thomas Crown Affair ” and off.
Persol which stop making the 714 model decades ago, has decided to re-release this model.
This is a true classic, retro, timeless styling, a definite head turner, and one of those sunglasses that everyone needs in their collection.
Former James Bond star, actor Pierce Brosnan, was spotted wearing a pair of Persol 714 sunglasses ($400) in brown.
The 714 shades are based on the design of the iconic Persol 649 model, however what separates the two is fact that the 714s feature hinges that allow the frame to completely fold.
