Ask the MB: Bradley Cooper Sunglasses in American Hustle

Ask the MB: Bradley Cooper Sunglasses in <em>American Hustle</em>

What kind of sunglasses is Bradley Cooper wearing in American Hustle?
—Alex

A: With the help of our friends at Allyn Scura, who did the eyewear for everyone in the movie except for Bradley Cooper, we were able to learn from the costume designer that they are a vintage frame stamped "Girard made in France" and "3700."

Unfortunately they're harder to find than perm rods.

A red version of the Girard 3700 exists at a shop on the Upper East Side, where they say these are "equally suited for boardwalk wanderings and impromptu parties." We say "boardwark parties," too.

MASSIVELY IMPORTANT UPDATE: Maybe perm rods are more difficult to find. We have acquired a handful of the gold-rimmed Girard 3700s in their original packaging and they're now available in our shop.

As for the rest of the cast, they are wearing far more accessible eyewear:

Amy Adams
Christian Dior 2250

Jennifer Lawrence
Ted Lapidus TL-10

Christian Bale
Izod Lacoste 707F

POURCAST

BETA

Sazerac

  • 3 shots rye whiskey (or to taste)
  • 1 sugar cube
  • Peychaud's Bitters
  • quarter shot of Absinthe
  • lemon twist

Soak the sugar cube with the bitters and place in the bottom of a highball glass. Mash with the back of a spoon (or muddler, which we hope has not been used to make a Mojito), add the rye whiskey and fill the glass with ice. Stir for about 30 seconds and then strain into another lowball glass that has been rinsed with Absinthe and filled about halfway with ice. Garnish with a lemon twist.
