While we wait not-so-patiently for Avengers: Endgame to open, why not avoid the spoilers and check out our homage to the Marvel stars’ fabulous eyewear style. As you’d expect from a bunch of the most iconic superheroes in the universe, their eyewear is truly out of this world. With a list of characters as long as, well one of Mister Fantastic’s stretchy arms, we could literally go on for days, but here are our Top 5 Most Stylish Avengers.
5. Jeremy Renner AKA Hawkeye
The fifth spot in our superhero style guide goes to Hawkeye, often seen as the underdog of the MCU. Jeremy Renner, however, is no outsider when it comes to style and his eyewear in particular.
Just last week in Seoul he was seen wearing these wonderful Maui Jim sunglasses. The Kawika frames are based on one of Maui Jim’s original designs, here seen in a transparent, crystal finish complemented by blue polarised lenses. Jeremy Renner certainly looks the part in them and being unisex frames, we’re sure you would too.
4. Chris Evans AKA Captain America
Leader of The Avengers, Captain America, made his debut in 2011 and he hasn’t put a foot wrong with fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) ever since. And the man himself, Chris Evans, hasn’t put a foot wrong in his choice of eyewear either.
He’s frequently spotted in various retro classics, but the stand-out look just has to be the Ray-Ban Round. Inspired by the 1960s and worn by everyone who is anyone ever since, including stylish superheroes. If you’re looking for a true design icon, look no further.
3. Brie Larson AKA Captain Marvel
Powering into the number three spot is the new captain on the block, Brie Larson. She has quickly become not just one of our favourite Avengers, but one of our favourite fashionistas too. Only last week we marvelled at her flawless style in a powder pink denim co-ord, perfectly finished with a pair of iconic nude, round sunglasses.
The eyewear in question is The Moscot Miltzen, an elegant, vintage shape that first saw the light of day in the glamorous New York of the 1930s. They’re hugely versatile and can complete a huge array of looks for men and women channelling their inner movie star everywhere.
2. Robert Downey Jr AKA Iron Man
Second place in our rundown is in the iron grip of another eyewear icon, Robert Downey Jr. Few, if any, of his Avenger colleagues, could compete with his vast collection of glasses. If you don’t believe us, take a second to peruse a few images from his press circuit for Endgame and try to spot him wearing the same pair twice!
The pick of the bunch so far, however, just has to be the squared aviators he was sporting in his Instagram video last week. Mach One by DITA are classic luxury through and through. As the name implies, they’re inspired by the glamour of fast machines and made using advanced techniques and premium materials that wouldn’t be out of place on one of the machines themselves. They could have been tailor-made for Tony Stark.
1. Samuel L Jackson AKA Nick Fury
First place goes to Samuel L Jackson who, to be fair, would probably top most style charts on the planet. The man is a living legend and the arbiter of all that is cool. It doesn’t even register that he is now in his 70s, he seems to be utterly timeless. Perhaps he is a real superhero after all.
Thankfully, he made our job easier last week by sharing a photo from the filming of The Hitman's Bodyguard 2. Not only is he wearing a great choice of t-shirt, but he is also displaying impeccable taste in sunglasses. Follow his lead with the very individual looking Irven from Oliver Peoples. This vintage-inspired, unisex design is bold, idiosyncratic and handcrafted from custom made acetate. The result is every bit as edgy as Nick Fury himself.
