Built for the Battlefield.
Elevated for Everyday Adventures.
Since World War I, Art-Craft has been the premier supplier of cockpit-approved sunglasses for every branch of the U.S. and NATO-aligned military — without a single defect reported.
And now, we’re offering that same superior level of durability, protection, and precision manufacturing to your customers with the Art-Craft Sun collection.
Taking inspiration from our military DNA, we’ve reimagined three of our most enduring sunglass designs — and one of our bestselling fashion frames — for the commercial market, combining the heritage and authenticity of Art-Craft eyewear with the luxury platings, modern finishes, and high-performance lenses your customers demand.
Steeped in our rich history, Art-Craft Sun delivers American-made, heirloom-quality sunglasses with timeless style, precision fit, and unparalleled visual performance and durability. All at a lower price point than other luxury sunglass brands.
Who says there’s nothing new under the sun?
With its classic style and comprehensive protection, the Aviator is the go-to frame for navigating all of life’s adventures.
For those looking for sunglasses built like a tank, the Aviator-B means business when it comes to durability and performance.
The frame design Joint Strike Fighter pilots have depended on for decades – reimagined for today’s weekend warriors.
Defining American style since 1949, our Clubman™ offers superior comfort and a midcentury look that’s always red-carpet ready.
Get to Know Art-Craft Sun
Classic Military Style Meets Luxury Finishes
We’ve dug deep into our archives and selected four of our most enduring military and fashion frames to launch this edited collection of luxury sunglasses.
On that foundation of timeless style and superior manufacturing, we’ve added an array of high-end details — from jewelry-quality plating in 23K yellow gold, 23K rose gold, and matte and polished chrome, to military spec matte black coating, handmade Mazzucchelli acetate tips, and elegant branded cases.
To date, we’ve delivered these armed forces more than 1.5 million frames — with a 0% defect rate. And we bring that same dedication to military-grade precision to every Art-Craft Sun frame we make.
The Latest in Lens Technology
Of course everyone wants to look stylish, but protecting your customers’ vision is our primary mission.
So in addition to unsurpassed image performance and a custom color palette available in solid, gradient, and polarized lenses, every pair of glasses in the Art-Craft Sun collection features 100% UVA/UVB protection, HEV and blue light blocking, as well as an anti-reflective coating available nowhere on the market at this price point.
A Legacy of Fine Craftsmanship
We’ve been setting the bar for American eyewear since 1918.
Built on a heritage of uncompromising quality and a love for the craft, ArtCraft’s legendary eyewear and innovative approach to responsible manufacturing have made us a global leader in dress, military, and safety frames. And now we’re ready to do the same in the world of sunglasses.
American Made Since 1918
Since opening the doors of our first headquarters in downtown Rochester, New York, we’ve been committed to supporting our local community.
As the oldest continuously-operating eyewear manufacturer in the U.S., we look forward to another 100 years of delivering premium American-made eyewear.
