Welcome to the last B Sunglasses Round-up before Christmas! Each week, our round-ups bring together top sunglasses news along with anything new or exciting happening in the B Sunglasses HQ. Our goal is to be one of the best places for anyone to find out new stories about the eyewear industry. Last week, we looked at Everysight’s new AR smart sunglasses for cyclists. This week, we’re looking at Morgan Motor’s first sunglasses design and our very own gifts for him and her.
Morgan Motor Company Has Joined the Eyewear Industry

British car company Morgan Motor has branched out into the eyewear industry with a new line of sunglasses along with the help of Taylor Morris Eyewear. Morgan has been producing handmade cars since 1906. With an incredible track record making classic cars for well over a century, it was a surprise when Morgan Motors announced their new line of sunglasses. At first, it’s difficult to see how Morgan Motors’ cars and new sunglasses come together, but a closer look at their classic cars and it’s pretty obvious: they are almost all convertibles and some kind of eye protection is always ideal when driving a convertible.
The head designer at Morgan Motors is called Jon Wells, and he based the design of the sunglasses on period racing clothing, 1930s-style racing goggles, and even certain design elements from their 3-wheeler car! The result is a pair of sunglasses with a beautifully conceived aesthetic with a classic British look and a touch of Art Deco.
The production of these sunglasses was only made possible for Morgan Motors because they chose to work with Taylor Morris Eyewear, an eyewear company that started up in 2013 by two friends Hugo Taylor and Charlie Morris. Morris first made a name for himself in the show Made in Chelsea, but he has since left and is doing well as a relatively new name in the eyewear industry.
It’s always great to see sports and technology companies entering the sunglasses industry. Morgan Motor’s investment is testament to the flourishing eyewear industry. People are more into eyewear than ever before and it’s a brilliant time to design, make, and sell sunglasses!
