American Optical Saratoga Sunglasses

By AO Eyewear


The legend, the real thing is back in the AO collection after decades. A classic since it was first worn by JFK in the 1960s, the Saratoga sunglasses define American style. AO craftsmen resurfaced original blueprints from the American Optical archives to restore this classic style to its original glory. The spearhead decor, the sculpted temples, the universally flattering browline - all just as they were when JFK sported his Saratogas. Only the finest global components are used in making the Saratoga in our US factory. “As long as the sun shines, this style has a place,” said a mid-century AO Eyewear catalog, and we couldn’t agree more. AOLite lenses are extremely lightweight and impact resistant. Chromatically tuned True-Color Gray tint reduces eye fatigue in bright light conditions.
