Dita Flight.005

flight001.jpg

Dita sought the input of some real aviators for their Flight collection and after showing its sketches to a number of pilots, one pilot asked if there could be a navigator style created for the collection. The company then worked with the pilot and eventually drew up the sleek Flight 005. Styled in the boxier navigator silhouette, the Flight.005 has a big presence with its oversized titanium frame that is both modern and classic in its aesthetic with its subtle, sculpted temple tips and titanium nosepads that'll never wear out.

$445, Dita
