In 1917, Italian designer Giuseppe Ratti developed eyewear specifically for aviators and motorists. Before the days of enclosed cockpits, these pilots needed glasses that would be comfortable to wear and fit securely without limiting their vision. This foundational commitment to quality and innovation remains evident in every pair of reading and sunglasses we have in our Persol collection at ReadingGlasses.com.
Choose from a variety of styles, including pocketable folding frames and some of the same silhouettes you see in the latest Bond films or worn by your favorite celebrities. From the iconic “arrow” hinge design to distortion-free lenses, these eyeglasses use only the best materials and expert craftsmanship to create works of art that you can wear.
