The Persol eyewear company was formed in Italy in 1917 by Giuseppe Ratti, and originally catered mainly to pilots and sports-drivers. Deriving from the Italian, the word “persol” translates literally as “for the sun”. The sunglasses featured here, affectionately called the “Ratti style” include the company’s trademark silver point, as well as the ever-timeless and ever-stylish tortoise color. These sunglasses are an idyllic item of classic Italian fashion. This brand was made famous by Steve McQueen.
