About Aviator Glasses
'Aviator' Style eyewear, given their name due to their oblique teardrop shape, are a classic design developed by Ray-Ban in 1937. Popularity of the Aviator Glasses and Sunglasses style rose largely in the 1980’s following films like Top Gun where Tom Cruise and Val Kilmer wore the fashionable Aviator Sunglasses. All glasses and sunglasses displayed within this category all feature the Aviator frame style.
What’s old is new again. Moving beyond just sunglasses, aviator glasses are making a full comeback, with today’s top celebrities and trendsetters sporting this tear-drop shape for everyday wear. Aviator frames provide the perfect balance for those with wider foreheads and angular features, including square and heart face shapes.
As the name suggests, classic aviator glasses frames were designed for pilots—way back in the thirties. Since then, aviator glasses have gone on to become a timeless symbol of swagger and attitude. While they do come in a range of materials, most feature metal rims and the aviator’s signature double nose bridge. The lenses are traditionally big, dark, and reflective, which swiftly bring out the bold in anyone wearing them.
Hallmarks of the Aviator Design
Known for their dark and reflective lenses, today there are many lenses used for this particular style. All aviators, however, will have the following characteristics:
A lens area that is two to three times larger than the eye socket.
Thin metal frames with a double or triple bridge.

Large convex lenses that aren’t flat and cover the entire range the human eye
Teardrop shape that curves along the cheekbone on the inside of the nose
Adjustable nose pads
