Steve Jobs & His Signature Glasses

Steve Jobs & His Signature Glasses

What comes to your mind when you think of Steve Jobs? The legendary man behind the innovative Apple products? The round spectacles that sit close to his face? The turtle neck and blue jeans? What is it that you remember? It could be the round glasses as he wore them throughout the highs and lows of his career. Those were inspired by Mahatma Gandhi, a figure he held close to his heart.

Top Eyeglasses Inspired By Steve Jobs


During his commencement speech at Stanford University, Steve Jobs shared about overcoming some of the biggest challenges in his life. He delivered an inspirational speech that touched the hearts of many. In that memorable talk, Jobs shared his experience when he was diagnosed with a rare form of pancreatic cancer. Sharing his story of the battle against cancer he said, “Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary...Stay Hungry. Stay Foolish."

We took some inspiration from his glasses during the speech and packed them in our Salford frames:

The silver bridge, arms, and round shape contribute to a sophisticated and refined appearance. The elegance of these rimless round glasses in a sleek silver hue makes them a versatile accessory that complements the daily style of both men and women. If you're thinking of an elegant look like Steve Jobs, you can consider starting with these rimless round glasses.


During a difficult period of Jobs' life when he was fired from the board of Apple, he got a pair of circular glasses with the rim. These glasses were a tribute to Gandhi and his philosophy. At that time, Jobs held on to his idol for a different vision and a unique leadership style that didn’t have to suffer.

If you're looking for a similar style, our HILTON 1 is the perfect choice. The frames in black are inspired by the 50s glasses and present you with a classic look. Just put them on, and let your frames speak simple living, high thinking.

Why Steve Jobs's Round Eyeglasses Can Be Your Go-To Look?

Clean Look

Round glasses feature a curved bridge with thin temples. They are sleek and elegant. Steve Jobs usually wore them in antique silver, not platinum, as it matched his grounded personality. If you appreciate a clean aesthetic, these round glasses can be a good fit.

Complementary to Your Facial Features

Round glasses generally compliment the features of a heart and square-shaped faces. Steve Jobs has an oval face shape with symmetrical and defined cheekbones. The round shape of the eyeglasses suits him as it highlights the symmetry and draws more attention to the eyes. If you have a heart or square-shaped face, these round glasses can soften your sharp facial features, providing a balanced and harmonious look.

Consistency in Style

We have all seen Steve Jobs wearing the same style of clothes. His look includes a turtleneck, blue jeans and grey sneakers. One of the reasons behind choosing the style is that he wanted to save time. Of course, who would want to spend time deciding their outfits every day when there are groundbreaking ideas to pursue? Mark Zuckerberg, the founder of social media giant “Facebook” always considered Steve Jobs as his mentor. He also prefers wearing the same style to almost every occasion.

Steve Jobs has the power to make boring things worth billions. No one ever thought boring grey could turn into such a popular choice, Steve Jobs did it. Those who value efficiency and prefer wearing subtle styles can go for round glasses. They can be a good pick that blends well with every outfit and personality.
