Peep Tom Ford's Ultra-Luxurious New Optical Frames

Tom Ford, purveyor of all things luxurious and amazing, has nearly managed to outdo himself with his new special-edition collection of super-fancy optical styles. Inspired by '50s-era eyewear, the frames are crafted from exotic water buffalo horn and gold-plated metal, and will come in both men's and women's styles.

Each pair from the collection, which hits Tom Ford stores in April, will cost you a cool $2,950—but obviously, that sticker price will earn you more than just a new pair of specs. You'll also get a certificate of authenticity and a cleansing cream and chamois cloth to keep that precious striped horn in mint condition. And the whole package comes in a special Bakelite box stamped with the designer's minimalist logo.

We could certainly envision George Falconer, Colin Firth's dashing character from Ford's film A Single Man, in these T-bar frames. But would you shell out nearly $3k on glasses? Let us know, and flip through all four available styles below.
