Utterly Ridiculous: The Cazal 951 by Matt

So you may or may not know that recently a few of us have gone a bit sunglasses crazy. You’ve seen Taz pick up his vintage Cazals, and both of us own a pair of Dita Lanciers. Basically in the last few months we’ve spent a fair bit on eyewear. Rather than come to my senses, I’ve gone all the way and purchased something that if I’m honest I wouldn’t normally even consider.

– t,

A little while ago I alerted the big T to the fact Optiko had stock of the infamous Cazal 951, probably the most coveted frame from one of the biggest names in eyewear from the 80s. After two failed attempts to buy a black pair thanks to chipping paint it was decided that the (frankly more awesome) gold version would be ordered. Michael and the lovely gals at Optiko informed me that it could take up to 8 weeks for the frame to come in so imagine my surprise when it took all of one week!

So now they’re here in my hands resplendent in all their golden, sport strap inclusive, side shield toting, gradient lensed awesomeness. They’re utterly ridiculous and serve no purpose as actual sunglasses, they’re an item of pure excess in every sense and I love them. Thanks guys!
