In what is one of the most anticipated films of the year, Martin Scorsese’s “The Irishman”, staring Robert De Niro, Al Pacino, and Joe Pesci, recently dropped on Netflix. Already nominated for 5 Golden Globes, it is sure to be a contender for this years Best Picture Academy Award.
Throughout the introspective masterpiece, we couldn’t help but notice the eyeglasses and sunglasses worn by Joe Pesci who plays Russell Bufalino. Pesci’s (Russell’s) glasses are none other than Super’s Classic Black eyeglasses. The frames are worn in the film in two variations: they are worn with standard clear lenses, as shown in the image above and below:

As well as with custom medium-light tinted grey gradient lenses, as seen in the following pics:
Never officially made with grey gradient lenses by Super, one of the pairs Pesci is wearing has custom light grey gradient lenses.
So to honor this pair we have decided to also offer the Super Classic Black as a Custom sunglass. Starting with premium Essilor full UV protected lenses, we meticulously hand-tint in house to the perfect medium-light grey gradient. The custom tint begins with a 60% tint at the top transitioning to 0% at the bottom.
