Eyewear Inspired by the Film Argo!

Eyewear in the film Argo

Congratulations to Argo for winning Best Picture at last night's Academy Awards!  There's some awesome vintage inspired eyeglasses and shades used in the movie, so we picked out some styles from our current Queen St. West collections to showcase.

Barton Perreira Squints

The Barton Perreira Squints eyeglasses are a similar shape to those worn by Clea Duvall in Argo.  They are a squared lens with a slight cat-eye shape that suit many face types.

Persol 649

The Persol 649 sunglasses are the same as those worn by Alan Arkin in the film.  Persol shades are classics and Steve McQueen was often photographed in the 649 model shown as well!


The REIZ ERLE is a double bridge model in a tortoise colour and are similar in appearance to the glasses worn by Rory Cochrane.  REIZ eyewear is handmade in Germany and their pieces feature both classic and unique shapes in a range of colour patterns.

Paul Smith Wordsworth
The Paul Smith Wordsworth is a similar shape and colour as the eyeglasses worn by Scoot McNairy.  They are a larger model and come in a classic brown shade.
