The brand's latest line will have you basking in shaded glory

From sparking conversation to providing necessary protection from those crazy UV rays, a good pair of sunglasses can go a long way. Thankfully, Oliver Spencer's latest line of sunglasses manages to do both without being too trendy, over the top, or boring.

The UK designer known for his well-tailored menswear, has teamed up with Italian eye wear company Eye Respect for a capsule collection of sunglasses that complement his label's main influences: hunting wares, the military, and traditional English tailoring.

Spencer has rolled out three distinct styles: "Bob," a chunky rounded shape with straight arms, "Sid," a round shaped frame with a slimmer silhouette, and "Frank," a slightly square shape frame that is reminiscent of Ray Ban's wayfarer.

Like his clothing, style doesn't outweigh function with these sunglasses. The acetate, that make up the frames are made from a live material that will not shatter or crack. This allows them to be bent and flexed in order to achieve a perfect fit. If that wasn't just cause to snag a pair, all of the styles are available as glasses. Now that's a good look---literally.

(Approximately $270 - $300, Available online at
