So far as I can tell the only downside to Persols is that they’ll ruin you for any other sunglasses. Los Angeles is all about sunglasses. I don’t think that people decide who you are based on which pair you wear, but I do know I can’t live without them. Through the process of trial and error – so many errors – I’ve hit on Persol as my brand of choice. This is the model I prefer, but it’s not the only one from their line that I’ve worn and loved – all were the perfect pair.
