When it comes to anything fashion related, the Italians make it best. These D-frame Cutler and Gross are no exception. While at $500 they don’t come cheap, these are a pair you can easily rock for the next 10 years.

Aviators are like the first frames ever invented. They’re so classic, that these $390 pair by lux brand, Tom Ford, is really not asking a lot to own a pair that’s perfectly crafted for any face shape.
