Batteries to power, turbines to speed. Batman star Cristian Bale and everybody’s favourite Matt Damon star in the exhilarating Ford v. Ferrari. This racing drama follows the rivalry between Ford and Ferrari as the American company tries to steal the crown from the dominant Italian force at the 24 Hours of Le Mans.
We checked out the flick earlier this week and it’s basically 2 and a half hours of fast cars, witty dialogue, big crashes and some very cool sunglasses. In fact, Carroll Shelby (Matt Damon’s character) sunglasses are so cool that we thought we’d do a round-up of sunnies that look exactly like them. While the exact model of frames he’s wearing has yet to be confirmed, at least now you can pick up a pair of amber acetate shades and really channel the Shelby steeze.
Update: We had a brand rep reach out to us from the actual sunglasses brand featured and we can confirm that Matt Damon’s sunglasses in Ford vs Ferrari are the Entourage of 7 BEACON 1020.
