American Optical Original Pilot 52 Gold Polarized Sunglasses

The Original Pilot has been a favorite of U.S. military pilots since 1958. Expect uncompromising quality - engineered to rigid military specifications. Wear it for life, it's a look that never goes out of style.

The Original Pilot 52 is slightly sized down and recommended for smaller faces, and with adjustable nosepads it's easy to customize the frame for your perfect fit. The rounded-square lens shape and bayonnette-style temple tips produce this signature look for the classic military aviator - and creates a fantastic look for men and women .

For nearly two centuries, AO sunwear has been the choice of US presidents, the first on the moon, and has been immortalized in Hollywood history. Today, in their state-of-the-art American factory, AO produces the quality, classic eyewear that has defined their True Original style... since 1833!

Great sunglasses

My AO Pilots came quickly with beautiful grey Rx lenses. I’m happy with the smaller frame that I went with and they’ve been very comfortable to wear. Thank you!
