Its teardrop shape and forgiving edges make aviators the perfect unisex frames.

The very cool history of aviators

Whilst aviators today are known for their universally flattering style, they were initially created for their functional use.
It’s all in the name: the first wearers of aviators were pilots! In the 1930s, a group of American firms came up with aviators as a medical necessity for the pilots flying fighter planes during the First World War. Back then, aviators were all about protecting pilots’ eyes from the blinding glare of the sun whilst they were up in the sky.
Their shape has slowly morphed throughout the years, and aviator glasses shot to popularity when they entered the civilian market in the late 30s. By then, they’d adopted the iconic aviator shape that we know and love them for!
They gained momentum in the 1950s and soon became an aspirational eyewear and cultural staple – just think Robert De Niro in the 1976 classic movie Taxi Driver.
Today, aviator glasses are mainly made of plastic or metal, and can be purchased in sunglasses, or optical form. Often, their lenses come with enhancements such as UV protection, vision correction, and scratch-proof coatings to improve the glasses’ durability.
