Aviator Sunglasses

There's a certain "cool guy" soundtrack that runs through your head when you slip on a pair of aviator sunglasses. But it's not just guys who can sport these shades; we have them for women as well.

Aviator sunglasses hit the scene in the 1936, designed especially for pilots to protect their eyes while flying.

The lighter, thinner sunglasses replaced the heavy, thick goggles of the time. They traditionally feature thin wire frames and large lenses that cover up to three times the wearer's eye. After the war, they were popular with athletes for their ability to minimize glare. But it wasn't until World War II, when General Douglas McArthur was photographed sporting a pair, that the sunglasses entered the fashion world. They've been a popular style staple ever since.
