Summer will be here before you know it, so you’re going to need a great pair of sunglasses to protect your eyes while catching all those rays. Thankfully, Taylor Stitch and L.A.-based glasses manufacturer Dom Vetro are looking out for you with a new pair of vintage-inspired shades that will not only protect your eyes from harmful UV rays but look darn good doing it.
The Nelson borrows its silhouette from Dom Vetro’s iconic M01 frame, which itself was inspired by vintage Italian shades. Fittingly, these Taylor Stitch sunnies are crafted from high-quality Italian acetate in a vintage tortoiseshell finish, a timeless look that goes great with everything. The lenses are polarized mineral glass, meaning they’ll reduce glare and resist scratches while offering full UV 400 protection — all features that prove these shades are as functional as they are fashionable. Available in one versatile size with a 53mm eye, 20mm bridge, and 145mm temple, Taylor Stitch x Dom Vetro’s The Nelson is handcrafted in limited quantities in Los Angeles and is priced at $298.
