The Persol Style
Persol eyeglasses and sunglasses are high quality and highly fashionable, but how can you tell if it’s a real Persol pair? Many of the Persol eyeglasses and sunglasses feature the company trademark, a silver arrow known by the company as the “supreme arrow.” They were also the first company to develop flexible stems for their eyewear to ensure durability and quality. Many of the popular models feature smaller, rounded lenses in a variety of colors. They have a sleek, fashion forwards look and both the PO3034s and PO2672-S have been worn by Daniel Craig and Pierce Brosnan as James Bond respectively.
