The Best Sunglasses For Men

Whether you're chartering a superyacht in the Caribbean, taking a luxury yacht cruise around the Med or exploring cooler climes, you're sure to be faced with the blinding sun and having the right sunglasses not only completes a look, it adds protection. Squinting your eyes against the sun is no good look, and neither are the wrinkles it leads to. We'll help you find the perfect pair to suit your style and face shape, whilst providing the right protection for superyacht sun seekers.

How to buy the right sunglasses

Finding you perfect pair of shades extends far beyond just the look and feel, though aesthetics is important. When exposed to harsh UV rays on a regular basis, you need strong protection from both UVA and UVB rays as the eye area is particularly delicate. Thankfully today most credible brands do offer protection from both, but it's always better to check.

If you need prescription lenses, you'll want to check this is something your chosen brand can accommodate, as not all do.

Valentino Mesh Pilot Sunglasses

The mesh-detail encasing these aviator-style lenses make these a very zeitgeist pare of shades for 2020. They are nicely tinted for brighter days and lightweight, perfect for all day wear.

Ray-Ban Outdoorsman Classic Sunglasses

These something endearingly old school about these Ray-Ban Outdoorsman frames. Ideal for those with bigger characters and bigger faces, the strong bar across the top of the lenses adds structure and definition. One to try if the usual Aviators didn't look quite right.

Gucci Web-striped Acetate and Metal Sunglasses

Gucci's take on the classic wayfarers are a nice addition to the game, with smoked lenses against the black trim and frame make these a sophisticated option for those who suit a square-shape.

Dior Homme Aviator Metal Sunglasses

These Dior Homme sunglasses have a slightly lighter tinted lens, which works nicely to complement the silver wire frames and darker brow bar. A slim, lightweight and smart option for your 2020 sunglasses arsenal we'd say.

Silhouette Sun C-2 Sunglasses

Silhouette has created a very paired back, basic style frame with larger lenses. Very minimalist and a great choice to accompany any look.

Cubitts Bidborough Sunglasses

Quite dapper in style, these Bidborough lenses have a slightly meatier frame to them, we particularly like them in quartz for their versatility.

Oakley Split Shot Sunglasses

Specifically created for watersports fans, the Split Shot from Oakley aims to be suitable for both on and off-water wear. Featuring the popular Prizm lenses and designed with extended periphery, it also features a lightweight cord to prevent your glasses from flying off when you're in action.

Riva Aquarama Sunglasses

Another popular choice among the superyacht set, these Riva shades are perfect for everyday wear for guest or crew member. Designed to be robust in the face of knocks and scratches they are a great choice to wear on board.
