EYE Nominate

Meet Ron Arjoon,
Staff Accountant

This veteran Jobsonite lives his life in sunwear, rain or shine and caught the eyewear obsession 17 years ago when he began his career alongside his father, two-time Eye Nominate past master Mario Arjoon. But “like father like sun” does not apply to their opti-tastes; Ron asserts his sunwear dedication was cultivated on his own terms. While Mario curates a legendary assemblage of oversized Cazal relics of mixed materials, Ron opts for sleek and athletic pieces with a focus on fit to round out his guy’s guy uniform of button-down shirts and New York Giants jerseys... though we’ve noticed a new tendency of late for classic wool blazers. He’s pictured wearing his one and only deviation from an exclusively white eyewear palette—smokey wire Guess aviators with architectural square-shaped black lenses in sunglass style GU 6582 from Viva International Group.
