Dear readers and Antonio,

With the summer hopefully just around the corner (the weather hasn’t been that great just yet here in Holland), I’ve been looking for a classic type of shades to with either a dress shirt and jeans, or one of my suits. I’m drawn mostly to Ray-ban and Persol for their timeless designs, but since their prices are quite steep, I’m open to suggestions.

Do you have any advice on what I need to look for considering I have a rather large head and long face? Would an aviator work or had I best go for the original type of Ray-ban? I’ve tried on shades but I cannot really tell if they look good on me or not.

Also, any additional pointers on buying sunglasses are much appreciated, this is my first serious attempt at getting a pair.

Thanks in advance for your help!
