I’m a sunglasses addict, and I’m always on the hunt to add a new pair into my rotation. I’ve been looking for a new pair of aviators for a while and the Tom Ford Tripp are a great addition to my collection.
The Tripps are available in four color ways: Black, Dark Havana, Black/Gold, Havana/Blue. I’d typically gravitate to the Dark Havana frames, but the Havana frames with blue gradient lens really appealed to me. The combination of the light Havana acetate with the gold metal frame and gradient lenses really lean into the 1970s vibe of the glasses.
At 58mm the glasses are ever so slightly oversized without looking obnoxious. I had a pair of Tom Ford Curtis aviators and at 59mm they were just a tad too big on me. With sunglasses, like watches, even a single millimeter difference can have a dramatic impact on the look and fit.
The fit and finish are fantastic, as expected from Tom Ford; nothing flimsy or loose with the frames in the least. The glasses also come with a very nice microsuede case along with the requisite Tom Ford microfiber cleaning cloth in the same gorgeous deep, chocolate brown as the case.
If you’re looking to add a new pair of aviators that leans towards the 70s without looking like you’re trying too hard the Tripps are worth being on your short list.
