Following on from The Guide to Men’s Sunglasses yesterday, one of the highlights of the new sunglasses range at Mainline Menswear this summer is without doubt the folding shades by Polo Ralph Lauren. The new PH4089 is styled much like a classic Wayfarer but folds at the centre to offer a convenient mode of storage without compromising any of the style qualities in the process.
Inspired by the Polo Ralph Lauren clothing aesthetic, the eye-wear collection carries the same elegant demeanour as the lifestyle label as well as a sense of timelessness which other brands aspire to replicate. This high-end collection takes classic styles such as the Aviator and in this case the Wayfarer, refreshing them with new colours, technological features to make them an original design which with lasting style in their own right.
Available in a choice of two youthful colours, the frames are characterized by a matte acetate finish in either red or khaki, topped off with the signature polo player logo on the side. The folding polo player sunglasses also offer 100% UV protection, with discreet hinges on the bridge of the nose where they fold in half.
A combination of the ability to condense them down in such a way and their playful colours means they could be the perfect frames to take away to a festival, travelling or on holiday where they can be stored in bags safe in their compact case.
