Persol Ratti 649 4F Brevettato Sunglasses

Vintage Persol Ratti 649 4F Brevettato sunglasses feature a beautiful Italian tortoise shell frame with all the distinctive Persol design features at the nose bridge, hinges, and ear stems, and they also feature the Persol Meflecto system that lets the frame mold itself to the shape of the wearer’s face. The Meflecto system involves inserting two to four small cylinders into the acetate arm to give it flexibility, a craft manufacturing process exclusive to Persol sunglasses, and you can see the 2 Meflecto inserts as vertical bands in the ear stems of these Persol Ratti 649/4F sunglasses. You may also recognize these Persol 649 sunglasses as the sunglasses of choice for actors Marcello Mastroianni, Steve McQueen, and Don Johnson in the Miami Vice television series. The unisex Persol Ratti 649 frame measures approximately 5.675" temple to temple, and the lenses measure approximately 2.0" x 1.75" at the widest points with both lenses marked Persol in the distinctive circular pattern of early Persol Ratti sunglasses. The inside of one stem is marked Persol Meflecto Ratti 649/4F Brevettato and the inside of the other stem is marked Made in Italy, owned by a well known TV and movie personality and customer of the Vintage Sunglasses Shop.
