These are the classic aviator sunglasses, and the only ones handcrafted to military specifications. Originally issued to U.S. Navy pilots and aircrew, NASA astronauts, and the legendary Blue Angels beginning in 1977. Scratch-resistant, UVA- and UVB-resistant gray lenses are noted for their true color reception. The unique bayonet temples are designed to fit under a helmet, making them just as comfortable with any hat. Hand-polished 24-karat gold-plated frames with virtually unbreakable solder joints.

Made in U.S.A. 5 1/2''W x 1 3/4''H.

My Dad served in the air force and his air force glasses were the only sunglasses he would ever wear. He lost them a few years ago and when I saw these I know he had to have them!! He was so happy when he opened them and couldn't believe I had found them. They are excellent quality and craftsmanship, I am very very pleased, and my Dad was ecstatic. Perfect!

There is no choice of size in NG website, and there is no mention during my purchase what size NG is going to send me. The overcome is the glasses I received is too small for my head.
I noticed from the manufacturer's website that they did offer 3 different sizes to suit different head size. The bigger one should fit me better.
The worse thing is that NG team is not able to get me the answer until now regarding the size of the glasses that I received. Unacceptable service.

          My husband is thrilled. These glasses are distortion-free., He can wear them indoors, i.e. shopping,etc. No wonder they came with such high references.

                      i purchased them for my husband, who has really been feeling the effects of macular degeneration. . light sensitivity, etc. He uses them all the time and they are comfortable for him and really help with the glare. He brags about them to everyone he sees.
