Persol 714 Steve McQueen Folding Sunglasses
Vintage Persol 714 Steve McQueen folding sunglasses are an engineering marvel of the 20th century, folding up to a size not much larger than a single lens and known as the first ever collapsible folding sunglasses. But these Persol 714 folding sunglasses are a special issue, with the tortoise shell frame and blue Neophan lenses popularized by the actor Steve McQueen. Steve McQueen wore the Persol 714 in the 1968 movie The Thomas Crown Affair and they've been among the most iconic sunglasses ever since. You also get the Persol Meflecto system, wherein metal pins are inserted into the stems to provide unparalleled flexibility and comfort. The unisex Persol 714 frame measures approximately 5.675" temple to temple, and the blue Persol Neophan lenses measure approximately 2.0" x 1.75" at the widest points with right lens laser etched Persol. The inside of one stem is marked Persol Hand Made in Italy CE while the inside of the other stem is marked 714 SM 24/56 54 [] 21 140 2N Steve McQueen and one ear pad is impressed Persol.
