Aviator sunglasses were first introduced way back in 1936 and designed to replace the heavy goggles pilots used back in the era. It was one of the first styles of sunglasses that became popular and has endured it's popularity for decades. They were featured in a famous photo of Douglas MacArthur during WWII when reporters snapped shots of him wearing them that were published in newspapers. They are generally designed to achieve two main objectives which are being ultra thin and lightweight with an added side benefit of being elegantly designed. A well known and famous brand launched this style of sunglasses and still today, they remain very popular with all age groups and genders. Today, there are many manufacturers that make aviator style frames and the quality will vary based on materials used. Again, the main feature is being lightweight which makes them easy to wear for extremely long periods of time like on a drive or at the beach. If you think of how many times you have worn glasses that felt heavy and left marks on your nose, you know what that feels like. EarthShade has designed and now offers a beautiful and functional pair of aviators named "Corsair". These frames are made from lightweight and super strong Titanium metal. The temples are made from real wood and the combo is stunning.
