These are the Sal Optics Lawson sunglasses. Designed in the aviator style, Salt has created some very epic looking shades. And while aviator sunglasses are not always suitable, they are perfect for a laid back, casual look, while also looking somewhat stern, serious, or simply interesting.
For those of you wondering who Salt Optics as a company are, I will reference their launch in coastal California in 2006, with a modern, well-fitting focus, with excellent craftmanship. All great things to say, but how exactly do they hold up in daily usage? Having worn them for a few days, let me describe my experience wearing the Lawson aviator sunglasses.
They make the classy, smart, or hip gentleman or woman twice as interesting as they were before. In two words: new hotness.
Price as Reviewed: $TBA at Salt Optics, in September
As I described in the intro of this brevity review, the Salt Optics sunglasses are built from solid materials, with the kind of built quality you’d find in a watch — therefore it probably costs around the same; I’m guessing anywhere between $300 to $500 (pretty expensive shades). The Lawson produces a shade of black dark enough so that anyone on the outside cannot see your face or eyes clearly (adding to the sparking of interest), but light a shade enough so that you can see even in darker conditions whatever is in front of you.

So, if the build quality is top notch, the look is pure and as authentic as aviator sunglasses can be, and it makes gives the face that can wear it with style efficiently, then how does it feel to wear on your face?
Well, that’s harder to describe.
Consider this: the nose pads are tightened to the frame (so in a year for example, they won’t loosen), yet they always can lie on the upper surface of your nose without discomfort. The same principle goes for the frame sitting on your ears: it’s comfortable, is well designed, and gets better depending on outfits, being male or female, or having the face that fits aviator style glasses look cool and amazing, rather than shred and shady (they can do that too, if that’s your thing).
All in all, I give Salt Optics’s Lawson aviator sunglasses a solid recommendation.
