Cutler and Gross Aviator-Frame Tortoiseshell Metal Sunglasses

Cutler and Gross


Editor's Notes

It has been almost 50 years since opticians Messrs Graham Cutler and Tony Gross established eyewear label Cutler and Gross. The creative perspective that has defined Cutler and Gross's DNA since its conception in 1969 is still visible today.

Each pair of Cutler and Gross sunglasses, including this aviator-frame dark tortoiseshell acetate, is handcrafted in Italy following a process that takes up to six weeks and includes decades of separate steps.

The classic aviator shape has a retro feel and suits both casual and smart casual outfits, so team them with a suit during the workweek and sweats on a Saturday.


An elegant, oversized pair of sunglasses featuring a unique square lens shape and detailed metal and acetate construction.

Model: 1228
