About this deal

By the time the Noughties rolled around, ‘Smallville’ had started airing on TV, with Tom Welling in a star-making turn as young Clark Kent.

When life imitates art: Henry Cavill appeared in a BOSS ad with glasses, bringing to mind his famous caped alter ego. Such a power player in the world of journalism needs some glasses that can back up the brass and in the Cavill-era, Clark’s glasses do just that. Although Reeves' glasses are no longer made by Universal Optical, we've assembled a similar selection of our favourite horn-rimmed glasses for you to choose from.Then I got into my head that if I could find eyeglasses that were the exact same models as the various Clark Kent eyeglasses, I could be very happy with a little display I could make for myself. We love that they’re oversized, that they’re finished in subtle tortoiseshell, and we love the fact they’d more likely be worn today by the Kendall Jenner-inspired office heartthrob than the office dork. When Superman goes back to being Clark Kent, eyeglasses are part of his persona no matter where he goes.

Although Newton only lasted for the first season, he did give us some great glasses inspiration in the form of these enormous '80s style oversized acetate frames.Gerard went on for another two seasons as Superboy and took the optical mantle of wearing these insanely large, oversized glasses. As a youthful Clark Kent in Smallville, Tom Welling showed us a more modern and sleek outlook, whilst he went back to the square and thick-rimmed frame from before the frame were more professional rather than geeky. In that series, Clark made the spectacles himself by building frames around Kryptonian glass shards from the rocket ship he was sent to Earth in. Thanks to a life spent immersed in comic books and movies, Michael is always ready to infuse his articles with offbeat bits of trivia for an extra layer of fun.

Even if you white-tornado your way in there, you're still gonna stick out like a red-and-blue thumb. The Clark Kent glasses are handmade from premium stainless steel and feature authentic Ebony Wood temples. Explore our eyewear collections to discover your own "Man of Steel" glasses and channel your inner Clark Kent for that effortlessly stylish appearance.

Although we don't see them in the movies, horn-rimmed glasses were part of Clark Kent's journey to being who he is. Since the early 1930’s, Superman has needed a way to protect his identity and his lady love Lois Lane from evil-doers. With his side swept hair, square jaw, baggy suits and oversized glasses, he epitomised the kind natured and unassuming demeanour of Clark Kent perfectly. However, an interesting aspect of the introduction of the Glass character is one of the partial origins for the character.
