Mosley Tribes Reinvents the Wheel (i.e Aviator Sunglass)

The aviator frame, originally by Ray-Ban, is one of the most celebrated frames in the sunglass industry. It is matched perhaps only by the Wayfarer in popularity and wearability. It is no surprise then that is has be done over and over again, and made popular by many stars (minus Tom Cruise). The brand Mosley Tribes, launched in 2004 by Oliver Peoples, has recently released a version of the aviator for Crooks and Castles which somehow manages to put a new face on this classic style.

I absolutely love the polygons and all the geometry that can be found in the styling of this model, called Castellano noir. It truly is a pair of aviator sunglasses, but with a dash of the 80’s and Mosley Tribes’ own thing all rolled into something I need to buy.

Mosley Tribes’ sunglasses all have this feel of originality and toughness to them. They are like the sunglasses you wouldn’t want to run into in a dark alley. Check out their website for more styles and other gear.
