Frequently Asked Questions about Men's Aviator Sunglasses

Are aviator sunglasses in style for men?

Aviator sunglasses have proven to be a timeless eyewear choice for men ever since their creation for pilots in the 1930s. Despite the ebb and flow of fashion trends, aviators remain perennially stylish. While specific styles like lens tints and frame materials may come and go, the core aviator silhouette persists as a staple sunglasses look. The aviator's iconic teardrop shape and bold metal frame flatters most male face shapes and works for many personal styles. These shades effortlessly combine form and function. Yet aviators also manage to feel perpetually current. Contemporary updates like colored lenses or thin wire frames offer fresh takes on their classic appeal. Though the vintage pilot aesthetic never goes out of style, it's wise to check current fashion sources to see modern variations on how to rock aviators today. This ensures staying relevant with the latest ways to wear this forever cool men's eyewear option.

How should aviator sunglasses fit?

Here are some tips on how aviator sunglasses should fit: The frames should rest comfortably on your nose without pinching or feeling too tight. There should be soft padding on the bridge for comfort. The ends of the frames should align with the edges of your face. They shouldn't extend past your temples or sit too high on your cheeks. The bottom of the lenses should be 1-2mm above your cheekbones, not resting directly on your cheeks. This prevents the frames from touching your face. The lenses should be large enough to adequately shield your eyes from sun glare but not so overtly large that they dwarf your face. The arm length should allow the ear pieces to rest gently on your ears without feeling too tight or loose. Adjust the arms so no gaps exist between the frames and your temples. When trying on aviators, check that the frames feel secure yet comfortable when gently shaken. They shouldn't be sliding down your nose or slipping off. For metal frames, you can gently bend and contour the arms to customize the fit around your ears and temples. The right aviator fit should be snug but not tight. When sized and adjusted correctly, aviators should feel secure and stay in position when worn. The ideal fit allows the frames to lightly hug your facial contours.

What face shape is best for aviator sunglasses?

Aviator sunglasses are best suited for these face shapes: Oval face shapes - The balanced proportions of oval faces complement the teardrop lenses and structured bridge of aviator frames. Rectangle face shapes - The angular lines of rectangle faces are offset nicely by the soft curve of aviator lenses. They add contrast. Diamond face shapes - The narrow chin and wide cheekbones of a diamond face are flattered by the upside down teardrop shape of aviators. Triangle face shapes - The wide forehead and angular jawline of triangle faces is balanced out by the aviator's browline and tapered bottom. Oblong face shapes - The long rounded shape of oblong faces pairs well with the elongated teardrop lenses of aviators. Aviators also work for: Round face shapes - The angularity creates definition for otherwise soft rounded faces. Heart face shapes - The chin is emphasized by the aviator bottom which contrasts the wide forehead.The bold metal bridge and large lenses of aviators suit most face shapes and structures. Just avoid very small petite faces which can be overwhelmed. The key is achieving balance between face proportions and aviator shape. When in doubt, use our virtual try on tool to see if they are flattering. The right aviators will enhance your natural facial features.

What should I look for in aviator sunglass frames?

There are a few factors to consider when choosing aviator sunglasses: Metal Frame - Traditional aviators feature metallic frames, usually gold, silver, or gunmetal. Go for metal if you want the classic look. Frames made with titanium can be lightweight and durable. Frame Size - Use our virtual try on tool to see how the aviator glasses will look on your face. The aviator glasses should have a slightly oversized look. Nose Bridge - Pick a frame with a nose bridge suited to your nose shape.

Arm Length - Consider the arm length that best fits your head size. Arms should align with the sides of your head. Polarized Lenses - Consider upgrading to polarized tinted lenses to reduce glare and eye strain. Especially beneficial when driving. Mirrored Lenses - Provides an eye-catching look.
