NDG-1 Smoke

I eschew those short rectangular eyeglasses that many wear – if you’re going to go through the trouble of wearing a pair, they might as well be bold and the NDG-1’s from Oliver Peoples continue to be one of the nerdiest models you can buy.

First introduced in 2008 in collaboration with Nom de Guerre, I’ve since purchased two pairs (the latest set being the glossy black/clear gradient called “smoke”) and will probably acquire a third next spring if they’re still being made then.

They’re not shown on the website, but any Oliver Peoples dealer can order them for you. If you’d like a similar pair but with shorter front, look for the Denison model.

Sunglasses, Rivington’s Revisted

Some obscure options from Japan.


On a side note, I’ve been wearing my Selima Rivington’s more often lately and I’ve come to appreciate their lighter weight compared my Persol’s – thinking I might like another pair in tortoise, I was surprised to see that J.Crew is now charging $75 more for them than they were a year ago. I don’t know the reason behind the increase, but it seems they were priced more competitively in sub $250 market as they’re better made than Wayfarers, but are not quite as good as Oliver Peoples.
