my thoughts on all things Bond
Today I'll be reviewing the Tom Ford Snowdon Sunglasses, as they are seen in the latest Bond film Spectre. In the film Daniel Craig wears the Tom Ford Snowdon Sunglasses in FT0237 52N 50 - Dark Havana with the grey lens. I bought these glasses about 5 months ago from Amazon and so far I am extremely impressed. You can buy these glasses from main retailers, however I bought them from Amazon for a £100 discount at £135 (the retail price is about £235 however it does vary.) The Sunglasses are well made, and feel sturdy and substantial, considering they are made from acetate (plastic.) The lenses are made from polycarbonate and feel secure and durable. The lenses are easy to clean and don't scratch easily, as well as having UV protection built in. They don't feel heavy or cheap as they are made of good quality plastic instead of a heavier glass lens. Nice detailing adorns these glasses, for example, at the top of the right hand lens there Is the Tom Ford engraving that curves with the fame and lens giving it a subtle but unique touch.
The arms of the sunglasses are also nicely made and have gold detailing on them. At the end of the arm there is a small pill-shaped gold plaque with Tom Ford engraved onto it. Further up the arm and onto the front of the glasses there is gold sideways T detail, representing Tom Ford, giving the glasses a unique yet understated touch.
When my glasses arrived (2 days delivery all the way from Italy,) they came extremely well packaged. They come in a main brown box which is square and has the Tom Ford name embossed on the top. Inside this you will find the Glasses case containing the sunglasses themselves. The case is a hard-shelled snap-close case in a pill-shape. Its covered with signature dark brown suede and has the Tom Ford name embossed across the top in gold. Inside (as well as the sunglasses) you will find a good quality glasses cloth. The cloth is made from brown suede and again features the Tom Ford name in gold in the centre of it.
Overall I think these sunglasses are extremely good quality and are a lovely piece whether your a James Bond fan or not. Photographs of the sunglasses are down below.
