There is usually an omnipresent stigma about men in glasses that they’re nerds and I understand that may be for good reason too. However, has that ever meant that nerds can’t look hot? Not at all.
In fact, adding the right pair of specs that complements your facial build might actually make you appear more handsome than you might ever have imagined, even if your eyesight is perfectly alright!
I, for one, with my round face, look passably decent with my pair of square Tom Fords (and I need ’em too). So today, I am going to share my thoughts on the most favorite pair of glasses I own, the Tom Ford Blue Block Soft Square Glasses.
Tom Ford has had an illustrious career, having risen to tremendous fame while serving as the Creative Director to Saint Laurent and Gucci and creating some of the most iconic accessories for them, and continuing his appeal afterwards in the form of his eponymous line launched in 2005. From sequined gowns to velvet suits, cashmere lounge pants and silk pajamas, his ready-to-wear creations epitomize laid-back glamor, while he has been a trailblazer in the fields of beauty products, fragrances and accessories as well. One of his signature line of accessories is luxury eyewear that includes aviator sunglasses, tortoiseshell glasses and more. The Blue Block glasses are their finest specimens, featuring a number of shapes from round to square and everything in between for every picky guy out there with any facial shape possible.
Since I use the Soft Square shape that complements my facial structure, I have been referring to them throughout, however, you all are absolutely welcome to visit SSENSE and browse your preferred shapes.
The square acetate optical black frame is accented with Tom Ford’s signature gold T’s at the hinges and a small engraved logo plaque at the temple tip to add flair and elegance. Its nose pads are integrated as well to ensure one does not have to fret with those annoying loose pads or irritating marks on your nose. The lenses are transparent blue block, rounding off the pair to truly make it a statement piece in your outfit. The glasses themselves are encased in velvet hardside cases with gold logo stamping.
Finally, if you’re feeling a bit more adventurous or desire to up your style game beyond the safety of the versatile black, you could always upgrade to the gorgeous tortoiseshell version too. Get them all at SSENSE to your heart’s content!
