American Optical Sunglasses

The oldest American eyewear company has relaunched this month with a renewed focus on craftsmanship and sustainability. The newly relaunched lineup will feature three frames: the Original Pilot, the General, and the Saratoga (top/bottom). Each and every frame is handcrafted at American Optical's Ilinois factory and they've invested in recycling all their metal and acetate scraps as well as ensuring the water used in manufacturing is continuously cleaned so that it can be reused for at least six months.
