American Optical Modified Sunglasses - Blasted Black


Select Size

These are one of the most unique and well built pair of glasses you can buy at this price. We start with a pair of dead-stock American Optical glasses, then they're dyed black in a black dye bath. Once the dye has set they're sandblasted to give them a unique matte look.

Then they're washed to remove any debris and the old plastic lenses are discarded and replaced with dead-stock real glass lenses which are fully UV protective lenses.

They come in a custom leather case made by Zip Stevenson in Los Angeles.
Once the stock of these dead-stock frames runs out they'll be gone for good.
