Aviators (Pilot Shades)
The Aviator is synonymous with cool, functional and timeless. They’ve been around for decades, and they're just as good now as they were in the summer of 1973. They look great no matter the occasion.

Subtle, elegant, form fitting, that's what defines the Wayfarer Shades. Being donned since the 1950’s, Wayfarer shades are another timeless design that seems to always stay in vogue. Their square framework compliments small heads, big heads, tall and short ones. You can’t go wrong with the Wayfarer Shades. Whether you want to harness your inner James Dean or you want to impersonate Anthony Micahel Hall from The Breakfast Club - whatever the reason - give Wayfarer’s a try!
