  • Typical wrapped style from the latter half of the1960's,

    this time from Japan and in cool snow-white with icy,

    full-mirrored mineral glass lenses. Before H&S got hold

    goggles, with their dark (10%), grey-base lenses,

    perfect for glare bouncing off the white surfaces.

    These days one has to bear in mind that plastic and

    polycarbonate lenses have replaced these dinosaurs,

    but that shouldn't stop you - check out legendary

    hot-dogger Wayne Wong

    contemporary, mirrored aviators.
