Pilot Glasses - Aviators

Wednesday, 03 March 2010
pilot glasses aviatorsEver classic things are seen in every fashion sphere; just consider a little black dress, jeans, white shirt falling to the category of classic stuff ever claimed by people who appreciate comfort and good look. The same is with pilot glasses aka aviators. As we know fashion changes recurrently but this trait does not have a vital effect onto these styled things that are next to us for many decades.

Aviators are sought-after for the time being and they never got outdated to be thought behind the times and event the sign of bad manners. If you regard as the major trends for glasses there are «butterfly» styled glasses so trendy today and strict square glasses demanded about 15 years ago, and John Lennon-styled round glasses. And throughout these years we have pilot glasses in the reserve ranked classic genre sitting silently by us.

The glasses got its name «pilot glasses» not for incidental purposes. In the year 1929 Bausch&Lomb Company, well-known to those who wear contact lens today, suggested this shape of glasses for US pilots. Performance-tested sunglasses with classic aviator styling has been a favorite of U.S. military pilots for more than 40 years.

The rough and strong structure and high quality finishing of the steel alloy frame together with distortion free, toughened and polished true color glass lens have made the glasses the standard bearer of all fine military sunglasses.
Once the appropriate material was found for such glasses, everybody realized the functionality and comfort of them. The initial model designed for pilots considered all problems pilots mostly face with. Thus, bright glares are neutralized fully absorbed by the mirror lens, while the eyes were reliably protected since the special «drop-shaped» glasses do not pass the light through with the tight correct anatomical shape. Bausch&Lomb Company is just the pioneer in invention of the universal shape of glasses, while the reputed glasses manufacturer Ray-Ban launched the model in 1937 affordable and available to anyone who appreciates the advantages of the comfortable stylish aviators. Since that time the glass-making industry has undergone sea changes. Ordinary people and movie stars exercise many glasses of various shapes and they go back to aviators again and again through all the times and fashion trends. The true golden epoch came for glasses in 70s when disco fashion arose and aviators were the part and parcel of discothèques with luminosity and glitzy light with fashion music performed by Boney M and ABBA musical groups. The macho movie stars still showed off wearing such glasses in the 80s. In the beginning of the millennium it was Jennifer Lopez who appeared in her video wearing half-translucent aviators to make the glasses demanded by millions of women and girls in the shortest time because of that new fashion element added to those old-time glasses. Primarily, aviators were designed as mirror glasses and later on the model was replaced by darker glasses with the tendency to have translucent lens to let people see how beautiful women look behind those aviators.

Currently aviators enjoy the popularity as much and often as in the 80s. That time aviators were of primary set frame and today we see various models of glasses. Earlier only the shape and mirror lens were emphasized and today both may be changed to meet the tastes of the consumer. Traditional classis aviators were fragile and now the frame is manufactured from metal alloys to ensure strength to models. Thin metal ark is not a must now and we see models especially loved by Valentino and Giorgio Armani where both lenses are smoothly attached to each other without distinct borders.

Grey, dark-green and brown colors are trendy for the aviator glasses. And today translucent models are more preferred to the mirror ones. However, de luxe model may be chosen, like aviators launched by Roberto Cavalli encrusted with Swarovski crystals.

Aviator glasses go with different face types, though if are the owner of the thin and long face you'd better look for another shape of glasses. The aviator shape makes the face longer, and if you intend to balance the shape of your face with the wide forehead and triangle chin, such glasses are perfect for you.

Aviator glasses are not limited to specific gender. Initially the shape was designed for men only, and if you want to look more masculine, you will have a good choice if you get aviators.
