    In a nutshell: Wear these if you want to live

    Gargoyle’s Novus sunglasses look almost identical to the Terminator’s own pair of specs, with some subtle differences.

    A113 Model Classic Round Clip On (As seen in The Matrix)

    Price: £35.00

    Make:MatrixEyewear

    In a nutshell: Undeniably odd

    Featured in The Matrix, Morpheus’ minimalist specs have cemented their place in the Hollywood sunglasses hall of fame.

    The A113’s are fairly affordable at the time of writing and are particularly light due in part to a ‘premium design’ and silicon nose pads.

    These Morpheus shades clip right onto the wearer’s nose, which means there’s no frame wrapped around the ears. Such a unique, futuristic design makes for a real head-turning pair of sunglasses.

    Matrix fans don’t have to break the bank to look like the all-knowing Morpheus.
