Where to Buy Stanley Tucci’s Glasses in ‘Searching for Italy’
March 7, 2021
Not only is Stanley Tucci the most fabulous personal tour guide in CNN’s Stanley Tucci: Searching for Italy, but he also happens to be a style icon. Yes, the six-episode docuseries may have lovingly documented Tucci’s travels around Italy during COVID-19, showing off the local food, cocktails, wine and history—but many viewers couldn’t take their eyes off the round, black glasses he wore in the trailer.
Want to add a pair of these simple frames to your repoirtoir? Here’s the bad news, not even Tucci knows who made his glasses. According to Jacqueline Hernandez at CNN PR, the glasses were a gift. “So, he’s not sure who makes them because there’s no branding on them,” she says.
The good news? We found some great substitutes. Here are two alternative options to the eyeglasses Stanley Tucci wore in Searching for Italy you can buy right now.
A splurge at a little over $200, these Oliver Peoples frames are a collaboration with Cary Grant’s estate and inspired by the sunglasses he wore in 1959’s iconic North by Northwest. Simple and sophisticated, they fit Tucci’s mold with a rounded design and sophisticated silhouette.
These stylish budget frames from the popular eyeglass brand Warby Parker are under $100 and come in a matte jet-black polycarbonate to match Tucci’s coveted specs. Warby Parker also lets you choose frame width, type of prescription lens (including readers and even clear, non-prescription) and your choice of classic, blue-light filtering and light-responsive lenses.
