Men’s glasses: which styles to wear in 2021

This month, discover everything you need to know about what’s hot for men in eyewear – with Eyestylist

Gentlemanly. Sophisticated. With a technical approach. This year, independent designers work with notions of the timeless classics to create contemporary frames for men with versatility and outstanding attention to design details. The line up of shapes, materials, and material combinations, as well as new, precise thoughts on colour and texture, mean that the selection of styles is wide and influences multifarious –  from past decades – 1980s, 90s and even 00s, and gently mixed with architectural ideas and a desire to create frames for a discerning design oriented male.

Titanium remains a key material in this playground for tech innovation, detail and precision. Super light frames such as Equator by Ørgreen Optics take the minimal approach to the material and stands out not only for the choice of six colorations, but the clever balance of 100% pure titanium and beta-titanium which lends the weightless feel and the sleek contrasting lines and contours of the construction itself. Colours here range from the subdued – antique dark red and antique blue, with “antique” being the all important detail in giving the colours a refined and unique finish, as well as including a matt gun punctuated with bright matt orange temples, a more showy solution for those who want a bold uplifting style.
