Some people like their style newfangled and entirely original, and that’s just fine. Other are into timeless styles, looks that carry loads of history without ever growing stale, like a pair of sunglasses that were worn on the moon, yet still look great here on earth. To cop some of Neil Armstrong’s style for your own devices, try on some American Optics Pilot Sunglasses.
Designed and manufactured to precise military standards, the American Optics Pilot Sunglasses have been worn by American service men and women since 1958. This particular model was engineered to lend pilots a combination of performance, protection, and comfort, and its continued use in the Air Force speaks to its superior construction. Armstrong’s publicity probably helped its chances, but the design is so sound and elegant that a pair of American Optics Pilot Sunglasses is displayed in the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum.
The steel alloy frame keeps the entire structure secure, most importantly the distortion free, toughened, and polished glass lenses. Offering 100% UV protection, you’ll have your choice of lenses at check-out between: True Color Grey Glass, True Color Green Glass, Cosmetan Brown Glass, Color Correct Grey Polycarbonate, Yellow Polycarbonate, and High Contrast Amber Polycarbonate. You can also choose the size of your lenses, as they are available in diameters of 52, 55, or 57 mm. As for the frames, they are available in Black, Silver, Matte Chrome, or Gold. Finally, you get to select the temple style: Bayonet or Spatula.
