Aviator sunglasses

Aviators made their debut way back in the 1930s as pilot sunglasses for the military. Fast forward to today, and aviator-style sunglasses are a favorite of pilots and civilians alike. The classic silhouette of the original aviator sunglasses is timeless, with a double bridge and large, teardrop-shaped lenses. Modern aviator sunglasses may incorporate subtle variations on this design—for instance, a single brow bar or rounder lenses.
