American Optical

Were your sunglasses the first pair to go the moon in 1969? Have your sunglasses been issued to the Armed Forces since 1917? Well, these have. American Optical has been around since 1826. They are the only company to have a pair of sunglasses in the Smithsonian. I think that says a lot about them, although I'm not sure what. They are timeless and cool though. About $60 will get you a piece of history.
