Still flying high. Aviator sunglasses have a storied history, and it really is all in the name. They were first developed as sun protection for military pilots around the 1930’s to guard against the intense sun and glare at the ever-higher altitudes planes could reach. The classic oversized double teardrop shape covered the men's entire eye, making the design practical, as well as good-looking. The style spread from pilots to fisher men and golfers, and Aviator sunglasses -- also known as RayBans -- became truly popular in the 1950’s. Aviators are still one of the best-loved frame shapes, and have been seen on the faces of luminaries from Marlon Brando to Madonna to Elvis to Gloria Steinem to Run DMC. There's no style like Aviator style

Why vintage Aviator sunglasses? 

Aviators are simply cool and classic, and what could be better than an original? They offer special style, and every unworn vintage pair of sunglasses we offer is different. Whether metal or acetate, double or single bridge, standard or oversized, the sky’s the limit for our Aviator options. They suit women as well as men, too. Choose from delicate gold or silver metal frame colour, sturdy black-rimmed, brown Tortoiseshell, rimless Aviator frames, and more. 

Oversized Aviator-style sunglasses are also perfect to hide behind, for shy men and paparazzi-weary women. Just ask Jennifer Anniston, Sean Penn, or Michael Jackson.
