Tom Holland is an English actor born in 1996. He first gained recognition for his role as Billy Elliot in the stage musical adaptation of the same name.

Since then, he has starred in several Marvel films, including “Spider-Man: Homecoming”, “Spider-Man: Far From Home”, (in which he also wore the famous Edith Glasses), and “Avengers: Endgame”. He has received critical acclaim for his performances and is considered one of the most prominent young actors in the film industry today.
Although Holland isn’t known for his fashion, he is, according to the Daily Mail, blind as a bat. He reportedly said: ‘I have very bad eyesight so I wore very thick glasses. There was a moment when I got contact lenses for the first time in high school and my life changed”. Despite the change to contact lenses Ton has clearly found solace in this eyewear and is rarely seen without a pair on this face. Today we’re going to identify some of the brands of glasses worn by Tom Holland throughout his time in the spotlight. We’ll take a look at his preferred brands, and styles and point you in the right direction as to where you can get a similar look to this Hollywood star.
Tom Holland’s Sunglasses Style
Although Tom Holland wears a variety of different branded glasses, he’s definitely a man of comfort in that he’s usually seen wearing glasses all in a similar style. Tom himself prefers to wear thick bold rimmed frames that act as a statement piece of the face usually opting for darker colored frames, usually black, but also natural colors like browns and tortoiseshell. Holland is also a big fan of contrasting lenses usually opting for colorful lenses that contrast the frame and pair with his clothing of choice.

A photoshoot for GQ Magazine saw Holland wear a pair of Ahlem Marcadet Sunglasses. They are very distinctive due to their angular shape at the top of the frames, yet circular button section. These really pop with their all-black finish but are available in a range of different colors including green and brown. They are currently available to purchase through the Ahlem official website for a price of $525.00.
David Beckham Eyewear

An obscure brand but one in which Tom has championed himself. During the US version of GQ’s Man of the Year awards, Tom Rocked these rather stark pair of orange framed sunglasses. These have been identified as David Beckham’s glasses model DB 7046/S. With their thick-rimmed acetate frames, bold choice of color, and subtle metal accents these glasses really completed Tom’s look and further compliment his choice of attire during the event. These David Beckham glasses are still available to purchase but you will need to seek out one of David Beckham’s authorized retailers are they are not sold online. They come in at a highly affordable £138.00.
