Tom Brady’s undoubtedly hoping to toss a couple of footballs into the end zone this weekend as he takes the field at Super Bowl LV, but the star quarterback is also tossing his fans a deal this week on his new eyewear collection.
Brady is teaming up with Danish eyewear brand, Christopher Cloos, on a special sale tied to the Super Bowl. The site is offering 12% off any purchase of the Cloos x Brady collection with the code TOM12 (the number 12 is Brady’s jersey number of course). The sale runs on Christopher-Cloos.com until February 7th, the day after Super Bowl 55, where Brady is hoping to lead his Tampa Bay Buccaneers to the NFL championship over Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs.
Brady isn’t just shilling deals for the eyewear company though — the sartorially-attuned athlete also teamed up with Christopher Cloos to design one of the frames himself.
The Cloos x Brady collection features a gender-neutral, square-shaped frame that’s available as a pair of classic, wear-anywhere sunglasses; as prescription specs; or as a pair of blue light-blocking glasses for working from home.
The Cloos x Brady blue light frame is available in six different colors, and fitted with clear, blue light protection lenses. The lenses help block the harmful effects of blue light exposure — the kind of light that comes from your computer screens, tablets, and phones that can often cause headaches, eye strain and insomnia. Wear the frames while you’re working at your computer or texting on your phone, and the blue light filter will help reduce eye fatigue and help prevent blurry vision.
While there are a number of companies making blue light glasses these days, Brady’s pair with Christopher Cloos stands out for its durable construction, choice of materials, and attention to detail. The frames are made from an Italian acetate that is 100% recyclable and biodegradable (for comparison, most cheap blue light glasses are made from plastic). The acetate is also super strong, while the frame itself holds up to repeat wear without warping or stretching. The use of spring hinges makes it easy to slip the glasses on and off, and keeps things comfortable against the temples.
Like the design but want a pair of everyday specs? You can choose to purchase the Brady frames with regular prescription lenses rather than blue light lenses. The Cloos x Brady prescription frames start at $179, with multiple colors available. Upload your Rx onto the Christopher Cloos site to see a full pricing breakdown based on your prescription.
You can also choose to pick up Brady’s frames as a pair of go-to sunglasses. Christopher Cloos says they worked with the quarterback on a design that drew from vintage frames, as well as performance eyewear, making this an easy pair of shades to wear on — and off — the field.
The sleek, streamlined silhouette is finished off with polarized CR39 lenses that help reduce glare while being gentle on the eyes. The sunglasses retail for $189 and are available as regular frames or prescription shades (Rx lenses are an addition $79 to $149 depending on your prescription).
Each order includes a signature Cloos x Brady protective case and a cleaning cloth. The 12% off deal expires February 7th. See all the styles available on Christopher-Cloos.com.
