Guiseppe Ratti the founder of Persol starting making a name for himself in eyewear in 1917, as one of the first optometrists to experiment with smoked tints. The Persol brand as we know it, however, only emerged in the 1930s with the iconic silver arrow. In the 60s the brand really started to make a mark with icons such as Steve McQueen wearing the 649 and folding 714 in the Thomas Crown Affair. Persol was purchased by Luxottica group in 1995 but many of the frames are still made in their original factories in Turin. Explore our collection of vintage Persol eyewear today.

What our customers say about us
I have bought glasses with Ed and Sarna twice now and each time my experience with them was perfect!

I have been searching to replace my favorite pair of Paloma Picasso sunglasses and was thrilled to find them here. I sent them photos and they had their lab do a fully custom tint to recreate them. I was amazed.
I bought a pair of 1980s Carl Zeiss aviator sunglasses and I could not be happier with my purchase, the lenses are amazing and they were delivered the next day.
