Henry Cavill Glasses

Identifying the Eyewear Style of Henry Cavill in his many Cinematic Roles

Henry Cavill has worn a wide variety of different sunglasses across his many years in film and TV. While playing roles such as Superman (which has him wear the iconic Clark Kent Glasses) and other shows including The Man From U.N.C.L.E (2015). In this article, I’m going to attempt to identify the sunglasses styles, frames, and brands commonly worn by Henry Canvill and give you up-to-date information on how you can go about getting your hands on these preferred frames of choice.

It would be silly of me not to mention Henry Cavill and the eyeglasses he wears during his portrayal of Superman in a variety of different movies. Most evidence points towards these glasses being custom-made to meet the iconic style of Clark Kent and to perfectly fit the face shape of Cavill himself. Many sources online site these being made by brand and designer Tom Davies – a true custom design so to speak. Tom Davies does offer a variety of different similar styles which can be found on their official website. 

We also have another article on our site that looks into other glasses worn by Clark Kent by the actor Tyler Hoechlinrth in his own portrayal of Superman in the series Superman & Lois. This article can be found here.

Henry Cavill Glasses: Other Eyewear of Choice

In the film ‘The Man From U.N.C.L.E’ Henry Canvill swaps the nerdy style glasses for a more vintage look opting for a style very much aids in the era the film was set (the 1960s) and in a style commonly seen across Gangster films like ‘Goodfellas’ (1990) or Scarface (1983). These are of course in an Aviator Style but have more distinctive features that aid its popularity in this era including the flat top, oversized frames, and gradient gray/blue lenses. 

These sunglasses have been identified to be a pair of 1001 Aviator Sunglasses (also known as the Bowery) from the brand Thierry Lasry. These sunglasses are still available to purchase but are by no means cheap coming in at around $500.00. That being said, you can do a lot worse than these high-quality frames made of authentic Italian acetate and handcrafted in France.
