Aviator Glasses were originally meant to keep a pilot’s vision free of glare. Often featuring a double bridge, aviators traditionally have a distinctive teardrop-shaped lens. This was so the glasses could fit around an oxygen mask.
Over time, the aviator frame shape became better known and more prominent among fashion icons and trendsetters. In the last few decades alone, aviator glasses have been sported by some of Hollywood’s biggest stars:
- Sylvester Stallone (Cobra)
- Daniel Craig as James Bond (Skyfall)
- Johnny Depp as Hunter S. Thompson (Fear And Loathing In Las Vegas)
- Tom Cruise (Top Gun)
- And many more!
From suave sunglasses to functional, optical eyewear, the aviator is one of the sexiest styles anyone can wear.
