Well, Persol gave 'em a little makeover. Originally dubbed the "714," this will go by "9714," with a completely reworked and refined look featuring thinner acetate, modern lines, and a slimmer and more lightweight body. All that said, it still has the all the signature details and style you'd expect from the Italian eyewear company---completely foldable, the "arrow" metal hinges, meflecto temples, classic keyhole bridge, and glass lenses---just slightly more contemporary and a little more 2015. Here are a few photos of the thing, which is available now starting at $294. A wise buy as we gear up for warmer weather...
