Channel the 35th president's timeless cool with a pair of his preferred tortoise-framed sunglasses.
A vast number of photos from JFK's presidency show him on a boat wearing sunglasses, looking effortlessly cool. The sunglasses, now available from Uncrate Supply, are made by American Optical, a company founded in 1883 that's still making eyewear to this day in Illinois. The JFK sunglasses, later christened the Saratoga, have an easy-wearing tortoise acetate frame and lightweight, impact-resistant Calobar green lenses. They're handcrafted in the USA using dependable seven-barrel German hinges and have both an anti-smudge oleophobic coating and an anti-reflective coating on the backside of the lenses to minimize glare.
