1970s POLAROID 8004 - as worn by Elvis KlasikVintageEyewearKlasikVintageEyewear KlasikVintageEyewearKlasikVintageEyewearKlasikVintageEyewear


The story behind this famous sunglass design

has been told in interview by Lamar Fike, Elvis'

long-term friend and employee. He found the

a pair of these in a gas station in the US in

1970 and Elvis tried them on and liked them.

He wore them for a while and after that, he

had them made in different materials and

colours and the gaudy adornments, ie the TCB

and EP logos, were added, the bridge having to

be enlarged to accommodate the latter. Here

though is a photo of Elvis in an unadorned pair.

We had this pair fitted with new Polaroid lenses

in the high neutral (62%ABS) lenses which

apparently is a tint preferred by Elvis.

Long Live the King! NB: this month we are

also offering the black version.
