Metallic frame sunglasses have proven to be superior to plastic frame eyewear in terms of durability and stability. Of the different kinds of metal alloys that can be used in metallic frame sunglasses, aluminum sunglasses are a popular choice because of the unique look of the metal itself.
Aluminum sunglasses are extremely lightweight and highly corrosive resistant. They are only second to titanium frame sunglasses, but titanium sunglasses can be very expensive. Aluminum frames are easy to color or can be displayed with the regular polished finish and will still offer a fashionable look.
Aluminum frame sunglasses are mostly used by high-end eyewear designers and can be considered luxury eyewear. These can be made in all the styles that we know today, such as aviators, cruisers, gliders, etc., for both men and women.
Aluminum sunglasses can prove to be somewhat challenging if they ever need adjusting due to their high resistance to bend. If you own a pair of aluminum sunglasses that need fixing, it is recommended that you take them to an eyewear store as they have the tools necessary to adjust them without scratching the frames or damaging them in some other way.
Aluminum frames in sunglasses can be perfect for making performance eyewear. These can be easily used by people who wear them while facing wind resistance. They can be worn by motorcycle riders, skateboarders, bicycle riders, skiers and snowboarders. The high durability of aluminum sunglasses means that the wind will not distort them in any way.
There are several possibilities for lens tints in aluminum sunglasses. Many sunglasses have the same color frame as they do lens tint, but the best eyewear designers combine colors in the frame and lens tint in such a way that they will complement each other. For example, the polished aluminum finish is commonly combined with cold color tints whereas warmer color tints go well with gold color aluminum finishes.
Choosing the tint for your aluminum sunglasses is mostly a matter of personal choice, although the colors for the tints have different effects on light. Gray and black lens tints are effective at reducing brightness without affecting colors. Amber and brown tints reduce glare but tend to somewhat distort colors. Yellow tints are much more effective at reducing glare and filtering out blue light, but also have much greater color distortion. Green tinted lenses are best for providing contrast between objects. Red and rose-colored tints are the best for outdoor activities because they provide excellent contrast against blue and green backgrounds.
There is always a pair of sunglasses that are appropriate for all face shapes and facial features. Aluminum sunglasses can be the perfect cost-effective eyewear to provide durability and a great look.
