Note – These are the original government issued aviator sunglasses for the USN and USAAF during WW2. Developed in the mid 1930’s these glasses were used by the air force to accommodate the pilots during flight and ground inspections. Since pilots were constantly looking down at their instrument panel while in flight, this necessity gave birth to the teardrop aviator shape lens.
