Hey Greg, it's my old Good Wear goatskin 27798. The knits are a lot less red than the photo shows.
TBH I didn't think they would be for that price Greg. If I were you, I'd save up for the real deal. You've got your standard Ray-Ban aviators in the meantime so you've got a damn good pair of sunnies already to use whilst flying.They just replied to my email. They're not UV lenses
Well, the seller seemed legit, and add stated that 10% of the sale would benefit families of WWII veterans, but of course that could be a gimmick. It was listed at $225 and I offered $150 which was declined and then $170 which was accepted. Immediately afterwards, I was kicking myself for not checking here for authenticity before buying (as I know nothing about WWII sunglasses except for the little I've found online). They are definitely wearers like the seller stated, but maybe I paid too much (although in that condition and if they are authentic, I think they're well worth $170).Wow! Tjoenn! If those are repros then they are the most authentic looking ones I’ve seen and I want to know where to buy them! They look legit, have the correct shape and if authentic you have one of the finest pair ever found! Hope you got a nice deal on them but they look worth the money.
I have one repop of these made under the Lindbergh name. (I have never seen a pic of Lindy wearing sunglasses of any kind.)I have three pair of 1930s wire Willson Sunglasses.
