Being around since the late 1930s the Aviator style of sunglasses has already proved their sticking power. Designed by Ray-Ban for pilots to provide protection from glare while they were flying, they now provide a stylish way to protect your eyes and are especially useful while driving. The lenses have a lot to do with this as they are simply huge and are convex to block as much light as possible. This isn't the only application of Aviator sunglasses as they represent a stylish choice for almost every face shape.
Although the design has been around since the 1930s that isn't to say that all the design choices have been left as sacred. For instance, Maui Jim's Sand Island keeps the lens shape of the Aviator design but instead of a metal frame and wire arms they decided to go for nylon with slightly chunkier arms to provide a more modern feel to the frame. This ensures you keep the 1930s chic with a more modern pair of sunglasses ready for the challenges of today.
Today, the Aviator style of sunglasses are one of the most popular in the world and if you browse through our range it's easy to see why.
