Safilo USA is pleased to announce the addition of two new styles to its tremendously successful Chesterfield XL collection which first launched in January to accommodate the needs of the larger sized man.
The new CH05XL and CH06XL offer larger eye and bridge sizes, as well as longer temples than most men’s ophthalmic offerings. The Chesterfield XL collection, an extension of Safilo USA’s popular proprietary Chesterfield line, now consists of six metal ophthalmic styles which each offer these important features. The four initial styles include: CH01XL, CH02XL, CH03XL and CH04XL.
The CH05XL is a flat metal, semi-rimless style with a rectangular shape while the CH06XL is a fully rimmed rectangular style made of regular metal. Both new styles feature attractive acetate temples with comfortable flex hinges in classic masculine tones including satin black, opaque brown, and dark ruthenium semi matte.
Just like the Chesterfield eyewear collection, these XL styles are geared towards men ages 25 and older and feature affordable all-American styling that suits an active lifestyle.
The collection will be distributed to independent optical retailers beginning September 2009. All styles carry a suggested retail price of $135.00
“The overwhelmingly successful launch of the Chesterfield XL collection shows that there is a tremendous need for better fitting eyewear for the larger male. We are very excited to offer more styling options for this important and often overlooked customer,” said Dick Russo, executive vice president of Safilo USA.
