History of the Aviator Sunglasses
Back in the 1930’s the military pilots had to put up with the sun glaring and making their vision poor. So the military actually came up with the tear drop shaped lenses designed to aid the pilots and get rid of the glare from the sun. It was a brilliant idea and worked well. So well in fact that Motion Picture Stars and Rockers bought into the idea of wearing the glasses. They quickly became popular and everyone wanted them. This lasted for over a century.
Where to Find these Metal Framed Legends?
I remember in the 70’s when I was in my teens these were some of the most popular glasses ever. The mirror lenses were the favorites and it seems like these are once again becoming the new fashion. Or have they ever really went out of fashion?
The prices range from a mere few dollars to well over a hundred dollar bill. Ray Ban glasses can actually be found on Amazon for a little less than $100, which is cheap compared to other websites. The official Ray Ban website has prices ranging from $145 to over $235. Do you really want official rayban or can you put up with something a bit less expensive? If so then check out Amazon because they have every kind and price you could ask for. The gunmetal Ray Bans below run about 89.00, a whole lot cheaper than going to their official site.
