Very cool, vintage aviator sunglasses, made in JAPAN. They have silver mirrored lenses, which were hard to capture, without being on someone. They are very reflective. lenses are grey, and fairly dark, in my opinion. Layered orange, black and sunny yellow acetate frames, very similar to the Oliver Peoples aviator style of this year. Sturdy thick frames. Heavy duty 5 barrel hinges, signed, JAPAN.

In excellent previously owned and used condition.

Opthalmic measurements as follows:
Frames measure 6" across, tip to tip (150mm).
Bridge is 22mm.
Lens width is (2 1\/8") 55mm.
Lens height is (1 5\/8") 43mm.
Inside hinge to hinge is (5 3\/8") 137mm.
Total frame height is about 2".
Temple length is (5 1\/2") 140mm, measured from the hinge, and including ear bend.
Lenses are glass, and non prescription.

I realize the difficulty of buying eyewear online. I am happy to model any pair, and give you some guidance. My vintage eyewear is returnable within 7 days of receipt. Re-listing fee of $20 applies to returned eyewear, to encourage you to do your homework, before you buy from me. Vintage eyewear draws a lot of potential buyers, and I loose them when a purchase is made. Relisting means I have to cultivate these potential buyers all over again. Returns are also more work for me.

Your Homework assignment is:
Ask for photographs of me wearing them, (if necessary).
Please measure a pair of your own frames, to see if these will fit you,
as not all heads are the same size.
Print out this listing, and make sure your optician will put lenses into frames that you walk into their establishment with. Many are not taking kindly to this, as they will tell you just about anything, to get you to buy their own frames.
If they tell you that they cannot do it, take these aviators elsewhere, or send them to an online optical lab. Many online places will happily do it for less.

I have a second business on the internet, selling reading glasses, and eyeglass frames, for over 5 years, and I have heard it all, seen it all.

Kindly read my store policies, as there may be information there, that pertains to your order. Insured shipping everywhere. Signature will be needed at time of delivery.
