Persol comes from “per il sole” meaning “for the sun”, highlighting these iconic shades’ function of protection against the sun’s rays.  For nearly 100 years Persol has been providing great style and function in eyewear.  One of the brand’s early fans was Steve McQueen, known as an everlasting men’s style icon.  We love the retro styling of the PO0649 and the collapsible quality of the PO0714 favored by McQueen.  If that’s not enough check out many of Hollywood’s stars sporting them too; or you may say modern day icons wearing icons.

During his travels the Japanese stood out for the quality of their craftsmanship, so all PRPS denim is woven in small batches on vintage looms by a small community of artisans in Japan.  Don’t just take our word for it David Beckham, Brad Pitt and a number of other stars are big fans too!  Check ’em out rockin’ the Barracuda jean.
