Our friends at Esquire point us to a re-issue of the classic 714 frame from Persol. “In 2006, one of Steve McQueen’s personal pairs of Persols was auctioned off for $70,000… But this October, Persol is unveiling a brand-new line of classic McQueen 714s. The Italian master frame-makers took painstaking efforts to reproduce the originals, and even took a few steps to make them better. The frame comes from a single piece of acetate, broken at three points for the hinges. They then go through a finishing process that creates a seamless silhouette and extra comfortable body.” A variety of colors will be up for purchase and they should be available through most retailers.
