A Classic Shape that Will Always Be In Style
You will know Aviator Sunglasses shape or just Aviators instantly when you see them. You may have missed them in the 1960s when they were a hit with all the cool kids, but it’s the rare person indeed who wouldn’t recognize a photo of a young Tom Cruise in his Ray-Ban Aviator sunglasses from the 1986 movie Top Gun.
Ray-Ban Aviator sunglasses also known as “pilot shades” feature one of the most recognizable and most copied frame styles in the history of sunglasses. Ray-Ban Aviators became an almost immediate favorite of military aviators, and then civilian aviators and law enforcement officers. America’s love affair with Aviator Sunglasses began early on when photographers captured General Douglas MacArthur sporting a pair when he landed at Red Beach in Palo, Leyte in the Philippines during World War II. But as much as Ray-Ban’s Aviator sunglasses have always been associated with man’s man generals and Air Force hot shots, most people love Aviators because they’re still the epitome of cool. The unique shape that have made Aviator sunglasses an enduring classic is more than just a concession to style – the frames and slightly convex lenses work together to cover close to the wearer’s full range of vision while also preventing as much light as possible from hitting the eye. The end result is a slick pair of sunglasses that cancel glare without sacrificing visibility. This is one pair of sunglasses that literally goes with anything – they look as great paired with an elegant suit as they do when worn with jeans and a faded t-shirt.
Ray-Ban recently celebrated the birth of the iconic brand in summer of 2010 and their most famous sunglasses, the Aviator, with a re-launch of their signature frames and live shows in New York and London featuring infamous punk-rock legends Iggy and the Stooges and the New York Dolls.
