While contacts, laser surgery, and other modern marvels have made it possible to forfeit these tender frames, glasses remain a coveted men’s accessories. Turn to the big screen, and it’s hard to think of some of the most iconic movie moments without having glasses play a central role in those scenes; what would James Bond, The Matrix, or Superman have used as disguises? As Shakespeare so eloquently defined, “All the world is a stage,” and therein, your eyewear are the props.

Stylish and Wearable Luxury Designs

 

From looking over or under the frames, to removing and cleaning them with a tentative gaze, men’s glasses set an ambient tone that can compliment your closet and change how you present yourself. They accent your eyes, and as Leisure Society Eyewear understands, afford you with a daily luxury that can increase your appearance of status, sex appeal, and more. Choosing a stylish yet comfortable design is a terrific way to make sure that you set a new “Male Standard” each day.

Baum creates his collections with only the most luxurious of components: titanium frames, 12-24k white & yellow gold plating, diamonds, and buffalo horn. During the launch of Baum’s lifelong vision and inaugural line, a good friend and fellow business partner approached him with the idea of expanding his brand beyond the realm of eyewear alone. The seed planted soon turned into fruition as Baum and his love for competitive sports turned him to partnering with sportswear designer Travis Johnson, former Founder and Creative Director of Travis Mathew Apparel.
