Purdey: Sunglasses for sporting spectacles

British heritage brand Purdey, unrivalled in lifestyle clothing and country pursuits accessories, have launched their first sunglasses collection with innovative aplomb.

It is those who are faced with the unpredictable elements of nature that have relied on the indispensable accoutrements invented by Purdey for so many years. A sterling British heritage brand, founded in 1814, they hold three Royal Warrants from The Queen, The Duke of Edinburgh and The Prince of Wales. For over 200 years they have been crafting some of the world’s most treasured shotguns and rifles. Interpolated with their devotion to the art of gunsmithing is their dedication to crafting a wide variety of country sport equipment and accessories. It is the necessities that can make all the difference to the enjoyment of country pursuits. Here at The Rake we have the pleasure of selling a range of their exquisite accessories ranging from leather credit card holders to leather cased triple flask sets.

The Rake is now extremely excited to announce the launch of a pioneering and iconic collection of sunglasses from Purdey. Completely unique to what we have seen on the platform, their exclusive limited-edition collection consists of four distinctive styles. It is a collection contrived of cutting-edge modern details blended with the perennial Purdey heritage. The four beautifully designed sunglasses are named in the spirit of travel and adventure: the Weekender, Keeper, Traveller and Sporter. Each pair is handcrafted from buffalo horn or titanium, giving the frames a uniquely patterned, stylish and light appearance. As with all of their shotguns and luggage, every pair of sunglasses in the collection is engraved with a unique Purdey serial number.
