Persol is one of the top-selling brands of sunglasses and spectacle frames. The Italian luxury eyewear brand is part of the Luxottica group and is a frame manufacturer with a long and distinguished pedigree.
The name 'persol' comes from the Italian phrase 'per i sole', which translates into English as 'for the sun'. The original Persol company started manufacturing sunglasses in 1917, mainly for the aviation and motoring markets.
Among the many innovations introduced by the company were the invention of flexible stems in the 1930s and the use of spring hinges, a significant innovation at the time. Persol's reputation soared in 1957 with the launch of Model 649, designed to provide eyewear protection for the tram drivers of Turin. The stylish design grew in popularity, achieving international recognition when Italian movie star Marcello Mastroianni wore a pair in the film Divorce Italian Style.
The link with cinema saw Persol launched in the US in the 1960s and the brand quickly became associated with glamour. With a larch research and development budget, the company pushed technology to the limits and promoted its image with extreme sports events such as the Paris-Dakar cross-country rally.
Persol sunglasses are easily recognisable from the distinctive trademark silver arrow on the hinge. Modern eyewear temples are lighter than ever and lend an original, elegant, understated profile to the slim frames.

Having purchased some Persol Steve Mcqueen's I tried but to no avail to fit some new polarised lenses having broken my original ones removing them. No optician would touch them as they weren't their lenses or frames. I searched online and having seen AlphaOmega's website I contacted them and to my delight, they offered to fit my lenses for a small fee rather than me snapping the frames or lenses again. Highly recommended thanks!!!
Superb service. You repaired my beloved and sadly no longer made Persol sunglasses. Clear and upfront quotation process and glasses returned repaired within 48 hours. Many thanks.
