Rapha’s New City Glasses Jul 12, 2017

Since Rapha’s eyepieces launched last year, the brand has been pushing out well-designed, functional eyewear. The latest being these City Glasses, which retail for $235 and are made in Italy. See more specs below and all the details at Rapha.

Manufactured in Italy, the glasses feature scratch-resistant, hydrophobic and oleophobic Carl Zeiss lenses to ensure excellent visual clarity, and use a bespoke two-position locking hinge system to keep them secure either folded or open while being worn. Weighing 30g, the glasses are comparable to the lightest-weight sport optics available today.

    It would be nice to see them on a face.

    I miss their original classic classes but judging by the line changes i’m the only one.

  • Those hinges are a little bit Tom Ford, and a little bit Persol. Love these.
