These 1970s-Inspired Sunglasses Pay Tribute To Burt Reynolds

Designer Jacques Marie Mage has been on a tear when it comes to the recreation of iconic eyewear, reaching into the medium’s established archives to reinvent some of its most prolific variants. After the resurrection of Hunter S. Thompson’s fabled silhouette only a week ago, the company has returned with an equally-astonishing homage to Burt Reynolds’ classic style.

The aptly-named “Reynold” variant isn’t far removed from the original. It boasts the same oversized aviator foundation, 4mm rim wires, and an engraved double nose bridge to complement the example’s signature tailfin temple tips. To bring the style into the modern-day, Jacques Marie Mage has outfitted the Reynold with a rugged, but fashionable titanium frame, monoblock titanium hinges, and 4 base CR39 lenses to offer exceptional protection from the sun. A capable anti-reflective treatment on the lens’ rear ties everything together, gifting buyers a classic silhouette that redefines 70’s style for the modern era. Head over to Mage’s website for more information on the limited-to-450 model; and while you’re there, pick up a pair of the iconic eyewear staples for $895.
