What Sunglasses is Brad Pitt Wearing in Babylon?
If you’re reading this there’s a good chance you’ve had the chance to watch Damien Chazelle’s jaw-dropping feature film ‘Babylon’ starring Margot Robbie (Nellie LaRoy), Diego Calva (Manny Torres), and Brad Pitt (Jack Conrad). And if you’re Googling this halfway through the movie wondering what sunglasses Brad Pitt is wearing in Babylon, then we have some good news for you.
Brad Pitt wore the Jacques Marie Mage Zephirin 47 in Babylon (reference no. JMMZPX-26). Unfortunately, these were limited to 650 units and sold out immediately.

Jacques Marie Mage Zephirin 47
The Jacques Marie Mage Zephirin 47 are a spectacular pair of sunglasses from what many refer to as the top sunglasses maker in the world. We’d describe them as the Patek Philippe of sunglasses or the equivalent of a Bentley. Handcrafted in Japan and finished with the best acetate in the business, these limited-edition Zephirin frames feature semi-transparent elements to display sterling silver hardware.
Not only are they some of the best-looking sunglasses we’ve seen since Jeff Goldblum rocked custom Jacques Marie Mage in Jurassic World: Dominion, they’re period correct for the movie. The sizing (listed below) is referred to as “pre-WWII sizing,” denoted by the wide rectangular frame that measures 142mm. Inside those frames sit deep vintage green CR39 lenses that appear closer to a traditional black when worn.
To get your hands on a pair, you’ll have to sift through a few retailers to find out if they have any in stock. We’ve done some digging and found three retailers to start your journey and listed them below. Alternatively, brands such as Garrett Leight offer similar sunglasses for roughly half the price. We’ve been wearing their Kinney Sun for years, and the new Byrne Sun is very close to the JMM design.
Material: 10mm cured cellulose acetate frame, custom double laminated acetate temples and green lenses.
Hardware: Sterling silver
Lens: Deep vintage green CR39
Temple length: 145mm
Frame width: 142mm
Lens width: 47mm
