Sunwear celebrates a classic style tradition with two radically different approaches here. TOMS goes for the more venerated landing with the enhancement of a flattened lens and dramatic black on black colorations, while Elie Tahari zones in tight on the double bar in an emboldened and dual-toned metal mastery.

Deep Freeze Blue

Dragon breathes new life into a studied pilot frame, mixing elements and materials, and that ever-cool blue mirror tint in the lens.

Modern Eyez/Modern Love

Find your heritage and glow anew. Witness two frames steeped in the lineage of an aviator but here both refined and redefined to the point where it is quite nearly off the radar of standard issue and on to a whole new-age flight pattern.

Mint Condition

A venerated couture brand emerges with a fresh shape, a playful horizontal twirl of the temple, a regal bronzing in color on its metal parts and the added comfort twist of metal nosepads.

Good is My Co-Pilot

The Perry Ellis brand is special to certain editors at 20/20. He was a friend with amazing taste, and we know for a fact he LOVED his personal pilot-shaped sunglasses. This style sets flight with that significance well noted.

She Get’s A Round

In full force, especially in deep, sizzling zyl tones of amber and scarlet, round is the new… ROUND.


Guys and Dolls

Hey! That’s a women’s brand. Well… actually… Nicole Miller made quite a statement with men’s ties back in the day, and this multi-hued metal aviator (with discreet leopard printing on part of the temple) rocks equally well on our dude.

ReMastering My Club
