The Gregory Specs

I wouldn't be lying if I said that Oliver Peoples do the best sun and optical glasses in the market. They have managed to beat Persol and Ray Ban at bringing vintage designs into the present without lowering the quality, under-doing the design or forgetting the coolness. Their latest model celebrates the 50th anniversary of the release of Harper Lee's To Kill A Mockingbird in 1960. The 'Gregory Peck' glasses come in four colours and are inspired by the model that the actor wore as Atticus Finch in the 1962 film of the novel.
And this might be a little silly but the new model is not unlike my pair (also Oliver Peoples from two seasons ago), which, coincidentally, I used to read the book for the first time a couple of weeks ago.
