Remember that time Tom Brady advocated for your girlfriend’s favorite boot company and then men everywhere followed suit and whispered softly in unison, “Wow these are actually really comfortable, shame on me for letting my baseless and antiquated interpretation of masculinity cloud my judgement?”
Admittedly, I was one of those lost men before realizing that if the most successful sportsman of all-time is aligning himself with a company, load up my cart and take my money because real recognize real.
Enter Christopher Cloos — a leading maker of premium, timeless, and elegant eyewear.
Today the company announced a partnership with the six-time Super Bowl champion that includes the launch of a Cloos x Brady exclusive eyewear collection.
It’s perfect timing, too, as Brady begins a new chapter of his career in Tampa Bay.
The Cloos x Brady collection features blue light glasses and sunglasses, with each frame made from environmentally-friendly biodegradable material. It’s inspired by the quarterback’s taste for minimalistic, timeless designs and a holistic approach to health and wellness.
According to Christopher Cloos, Brady’s passion for craftsmanship provided an opportunity for a collaborative design process, working closely with the Christopher Cloos team to create a stylish product with added purpose.
“Tom Brady’s commitment to excellence on and off the field is inspiring. We are proud to partner with a true champion as we grow our presence in the United States and offer consumers an eyewear collection reflective of the qualities that give Tom and the Christopher Cloos brand an edge over the competition,” said Julius Langkilde, CEO of Christopher Cloos. “During the collaborative design process, Tom expressed his desire to create a line that had added health and wellness benefits, both for individuals and the environment. We were able to bring his vision to life with frames made from biodegradable materials and blue light glasses that protects vision and sleep.”
At the time of this writing, blue light glasses—despite their visual benefits—are not on the league’s banned substance list. If Brady wins number 7, the commissioner will probably hand Brady another misguided four-game suspension. You heard it here first.

There’s barely a record Brady hasn’t broken during his 20 record-breaking seasons in the NFL.
He also happens to be the only reason my lady watches football and after seeing him in these shades, it’s hard to blame her. Credit where it’s due; handsome is handsome.
The Cloos x Brady Sunglass collection comes in four signature colorways at launch, with each frame featuring a round, minimalistic and timeless shape – Noire, Espresso, Grey Tonic, and an all new Tokyo Tortoise – and retails at $189.
The Cloos x Brady Blue Light collection is available in the same colorways and retails at $179. Blue Light from screens can cause headaches, reduced vision, eye strain and insomnia. According to Christopher Cloos, “as someone who is constantly watching film at the stadium, practice facility, on the road and at home, Blue Light protection lenses were a critical addition for Tom.”
Have to preserve that vision for optimal looks at a new receiving corp.
