A new batch of sunglasses just arrived online from Super, perfectly timed to ward off snow blindness. There are the standard Wayfarer shapes, as always—but we thought we’d highlight a few of the more interesting frames, starting with the tortoiseshell model on this gentleman…

Really, the model says it all. The tortoiseshell would normally lend a professorial vibe, but in this shape it looks more like ’70s Bowie. That’s quite a trick.

This one’s halfway between a Clubmaster (the metal nose bridge) and a Moscot (the faded acetate). Not a bad combination.

This is maybe the most on-trend model here. We hesitate to throw around the word “steampunk,” but this kind of wire-heavy frame has been all over lately. We’ll go with “mid-century nuclear scientist.”
