Christmas is soon upon us, but there is still time for some last minute gift shopping. With inspiration from icons of menswear, Kirk Originals sunglasses make the ideal gift for the stylish man in your life. With this in mind, we’ve put together a loose guide to help you determine the best style!


For a man like Steve McQueen, we recommend the Reed; a stylish aviator frame inspired by the thrill of the classic racetrack scene, with just a hint of city-slicking cool. Equally at home behind the steering wheel, or on a Sunday morning walk in the park. Wear Reed with a Harrington and a polo neck, or a Barbour jacket and chunky roll-neck to channel the timeless style of a menswear icon.

For the Cary Grant, the Harvey is the perfect choice. Inspired by the man himself, as Roger Thornhill in North by Northwest, Harvey is a quintessentially 50s shape with a distinctly modern edge. Dress Harvey up with a sharp suit for the city sun, or down for the weekend with a field jacket, grey flannel trousers and loafers. Available in the classic tortoiseshell or a hand polished black acetate.

For the Michael Caine, the Stamp; a square frame inspired by the jet-setting superstars of British cinema. Stamp’s strong shape lends itself perfectly to unstructured tailoring, trench coats and Chelsea boots for a look which conjures up images of Soho in the 60s with an edge of Italian cool. Whether you’re enjoying an espresso in Bar Italia, or strolling along South Bank, make Stamp the accessory of choice.
