American Optical Original Pilot Sunglasses:

Thanks to Peter from RLX5513 for providing me with the right pair of sunglasses. A pair of used AO American Optical Original Pilot Sunglasses. But actually Peter is the man for buying vintage watches and his handmade bags. 

AO – American Optical is still the most favoured eyewear/sunglasses of the US Military. The company history goes back 1826. The AO sunglasses have been worn by Commander Neil Armstrong on the moon, Tom Cruise in Top Gun and Dennis Hopper in Easy Rider. So I guess they are appropriate for me as well. Since the glass of them are rather dark when you go indoors (as a sunglass for protection should be) the upgrade to make them perfect and easy to stow away will be the L.I. Sounder Leather Sunglass Strap.

Just found an article about the American Optical Original Pilot Sunglasses @ “an affordable wardrobe by Giuseppe Timore”.

    You’re right, the “Original Pilot” by AO Eyewear certainly is the best shade in the world. But Dennis Hopper and Tom Cruise didn’t wear them in those movies. They’ve been worn in many other cool movies though, e.g. Robert De Niro in Taxi Driver, Robert Duvall in Apocalypse Now or Don Draper in Mad Men, just to mention a few. And of course NASA Astronauts were glad to have this gear on their missions.
