Sorry, we didn’t discover no-fat chocolate; we’re talking about glasses! Poor old brown has a bit of a bad rap – think grandad’s corduroy or nan’s brown living room furnished with hideous orange haberdasheries. While all you retro babies have long since embraced brown, others might need more convincing. But brown flatter all skin tones and with Easter just around the corner, it’s never been easier to indulge in some rich chocolatey browns…
Brown v black
Brown spectacles are a great alternative to black, which is sometimes too dark or bold for occasions or complexions – not everyone wants to look like a photographer eh? Brown can take the edge off, without being obtrusive. In fact, we bet you see brown eyewear everyday – about half of all sunglass-wearers prefer brown lenses or tortoiseshell frames (read more about classic tortoiseshell glasses here).
Glasses in warm brown shades also compliment many complexions – think olive skin paired with caramels and coffees; or lighter redheads offset by browny-greens and beiges.
Brown glasses: The Duck range
All Sneaking Duck glasses are unisex, but some lean towards masculine looks. The brown glasses frames for men in our range include The Cumulonimbus, bold but with a beautiful marbled interior. The Single Malt have a two-tone wooden finished acetate to indicate the wearing is maturing nicely! The Tempered is an office-option with a glossy chocolate-brown crystal back and polished bamboo arms.
Some brown glasses frames for women are The Lipari with delicate white and blue sandwiched between brown, and The Mousse with sleek and semi-transparent lines. The Pieno are a good option for a bolder or retro-fan lass because, despite its delicate frame surround, the peaked rectangle shape is layered with brown and cream and caramel – delicious!
