As seen in the 2012 James Bond film, Skyfall, the Tom Ford Marko FT0144 (also known as TF1f44) glasses are the epitome of cool and effortlessly casual sophistication.

Bond actor, Daniel Craig, was also regularly spotted wearing the sunglasses around the set of the film, and whilst filming the action scenes in Turkey. A ‘Bond on Set’ photobook shows the glasses, which have a rhodium silver frame and blue lenses, were worn in the Death City scene and one other scene in the film.

The fact these sunglasses have been worn by Daniel Craig himself, as well as one of fiction’s coolest characters, strengthens the Tom Ford Marko sunglasses’ enviable status as a must-have accessory for anyone who takes their fashion and reputation seriously.

The Tom Ford Marko FT0144 sunglasses aren’t the only model to be featured in a James Bond film. In Quantum of Solace, Bond is also seen wearing the Tom Ford FT108 sunglasses.

Classic aviator shades never go out of style. The open bridge, dropped shaped frame and curve of the lenses mean they suit all styles of face, and as Mr Bond demonstrates, they work well in any situation. Whether that’s a formal gathering or a social occasion.

As with all models of Tom Ford sunglasses, quality and comfort is at the forefront of every design. These Italian-made FT0144s have a lens width of 58mm and wrap around the whole side of your face, providing the ultimate in UV eye protection, whilst still looking suave.

The lenses are made from polycarbonate, making them ultralight and comfortable for all-day wear. These lightweight lenses, paired with rhodium frames make for a cool, comfortable combination. And it doesn’t get much cooler than an endorsement by Daniel Craig. Embrace your inner Bond, be bold and invest in these timeless Tom Ford Marko sunglasses.
