American Optical Modified Sunglasses - Blasted Blue


Select Size

The color of these glasses is darker than shown in the photos due to the backlighting of the photograph.

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 blue in a blue pigment 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.
