Pilot glasses are not only a favourite among pilots, but they have also made their impact in the fashion world. The retro design, originally made by Ray-Ban, is a staple design for many eyewear manufacturers. Pilot style glasses and sunglasses are a timeless popular choice amongst celebrities, which adds even more appeal to the frame design.
Are pilot and aviator glasses the same?
Aviator glasses are the inspiration for pilot glasses. Although they are essentially the same design, the term aviator is exclusive to Ray-Ban while the term pilot glasses serves as other brands’ equivalent. Born out of necessity, Ray-Ban created the original design for pilots to wear in the US Air Force. However, it wasn’t long before pilot glasses frames made their way into the hands of cultural icons. They were often worn in Hollywood movies, making their stamp as one of the hottest eyewear trends.
