The Pick: Classic cool sunglasses to take to sea

Fancy yourself as a yachtsman? Then there is only one pair of of sunglasses for you

There are certain wardrobe staples you should be packing before setting sail. A summer sea journey needs board shorts, linen shirts and a good reliable pair of boat shoes. But don even all that, and you’ll still be missing something behind the wheel, or relaxing on your sundeck; a pair of Ray-Ban Clubmaster sunglasses.

The style is both bold and instantly recognisable and, although popularised by everyone from Bruce Willis in Moonlighting to Jake Gyllenhaal in Nightcrawler, these iconic shades have carved out a niche as the perfect accessory to take to sea. Effortlessly stylish – and available in a handy folding version – they are reliable, hardy and synonymous with cool.

This iteration, square-framed and gold-toned, are crafted from the classic acetate – and bring the label’s signature style up to modern standards with green crystal lenses. Made in Italy, and housed in a designer-stamped leather case for extra protection, they are the ideal staple for your end of summer wardrobe – and the perfect investment to replace the countless pairs you undoubtedly broke on adventures this summer.
