Making sunglasses for action heroes is a niche market, but someone’s got to fill it. Enter Blinde Eyewear, the label that has designed shades for everyone from Angelina Jolie in <i>Lara Croft: Tomb Raider</i> to Keanu Reeves and his posse in <i>The Matrix</i> — not to mention the many off-duty superheroes lurking about Hollywood. Blinde Eyewear’s collection isn’t solely reserved for big-screen brawny types, however: modern-retro styles like the In Cahoots and the Bagel are super-stylish yet accessible, while many frames feature streamlined, subtle shapes. Founded by Richard Walker and Troy Schmidt, Blinde makes its glasses and sunglasses by hand; features such as beta-titanium core wire and seven-barrel, six-pin stainless steel hinges give each pair superior flexibility and durability. You might not be an action hero (yet), but that doesn't mean you shouldn't see the world through an action hero's specs.
A favorite among Hollywood and fashion insiders, Blinde Eyewear’s collection offers myriad of-the-moment styles—both sunglasses and prescription-ready frames are in the mix. In our sale: 70 pairs of glasses that run the gamut from nerd-chic to downtown cool-kid. The vintage-feeling Road to Ruins and Lights Out sunglasses in tortoiseshell and black, respectively, are two of our favorites.
There’s more to Blinde Sunglasses than the Matrix model that Keanu Reeves made famous. Our sale offers a number of them, running the gamut from hip aviators to thick, rectangular frames in eye-popping red. Packed with all the technical details that any optical obsessive covets—beta-titanium core wire, tumble-polished frames—any of these shades would be a welcome addition to your collection.
Guys, take note: Casual Friday is not an excuse to look sloppy on the job. Ditch those ill-fitting chinos and that oversize button-down, and step up your game with this selection of sharp, office-friendly picks. We’ve got trim trousers, fitted blazers, and handsome suede wingtips—plus a whole host of other stylish options. Just what you need to end the workweek in top form.
It’s all about the details in this sale, curated by Gilt MAN’s own Nick Wooster. From canvas and wool totes to cashmere scarves and no small supply of stylish hardware, we’ve got everything you need to add a little personal flavor to any look. Think you’re not an accessories guy? Think again.
