The First Day of Aviator Sunglass Season

So here it is, the first day of Summer here in North America and it's a beautiful, sunny day here at Rothco headquarters on Long Island. A day that's perfect for a sharp pair of sunglasses. And according to MR Magazine, aviator sunglasses are still one of the hottest looks around. Interestingly enough, the feature pictured below mentions the A. Kurtz sunglass line, but suggests the fashionistas try the Rothco brand as it's "the real thing".

Now, who are we to argue with MR Magazine, the magazine of menswear retailing? After all, we HAVE been selling aviator sunglasses for decades now and we have a couple of dozen styles, from genuine Air Force pilot's bayonet temple sunglasses, to less expensive but equally stylish aviator sunglasses with wrap-around temples.

Whatever aviators you or your customers need this summer, Rothco will be sure to have them. Just in case you need a little more inspiration, here are Jennifer Aniston, Kate Bosworth and Naomi Watts braving the sun in a shot from People magazine.
Have a great, bright summer!
