Year after year in fashion, especially in men’s fashion, there are a couple things you can always count on: blue jeans and aviator glasses will always be in.

While aviator sunglasses have been cool for a long time, it seems the aviation pilots in Top Gun, specifically Tom Cruise, made it a necessary part of every man’s wardrobe.

This isn’t just in Western countries either. You can go to Asia, South America, or just about anywhere and find guys in their pilot shades.

Celebs like Zack Efron are always seen wearing their aviator specs, as it seems to be what some call a “power fashion” for men who want to be noticed.

Interestingly, the geek glasses look of the 1960s has come back for men as well in the last couple years, and is somewhat the anti-aviator look. Go figure.

No matter; aviator glasses should be part of every confident man’s fashion choice, as they work in almost any circumstance.
