Television is notorious for spawning the development of mass-marketed licensed products to the public. Every day a new television series leads to the development of all kinds of products from tee-shirts to hats to sunglasses for the adoring public. A similar even happened with the popular reality television series, American Chopper.
A series on the TLC channel, this show follows the day to day lives and work of Paul Teutul Sr. and his son, Paul Teutul Jr. is also known as Junior or Paulie. They own and run a custom motorcycle workshop in Montgomery, New York known as Orange County Choppers.
The show is immensely popular and has led to the creation of their very own brand name sunglasses, among other products including a video game. These sunglasses are made by Exclusive OCC Sunglasses and sold all over through licensed dealers.
Sunglasses for the American Chopper fan are long-lasting and high quality. The frames are all made of 99% aluminum and 1% magnesium to create a strong metal frame that is also lightweight. Allergies are also not a problem with this hypoallergenic combination of metals.
Since these glasses are made for big hog fans, the frames are curved to fit the face shielding it from harsh winds. Plus, double action spring hinges allow more flexibility in the temples so they fit closely to the sides of the head without being uncomfortable.
All Chopper sunglasses lens are made of shatter proof polycarbonate and provide 100% UV protection. So, even as you get older, you can still ride the road with a clear and sharp vision.
Every pair of authentic Orange County Chopper Sunglasses comes with its own leather-bound case. The temples are also embossed with the fluid Orange County Choppers logo, that OCC monogram twisted and pulled into the shape of a rocking sweet chopper.
Look for that stylized logo on the sides of model 504 Silver Frame Sunglasses ($174.95). These shades with their barely-there frames and half-sized burnt orange mirror lens are perfect for a day on the road. These chopper sunglasses favor Paul Jr.’s sense of style. They’re cool, fashionable and clearly California inspired.
Paul Sr.’s style is more practical and pragmatic and so is his eyewear. Check out model 765108 OCC Sunglasses ($49.95) and you’ll see the sunglasses inspired by Paul Sr. These plastic-framed glasses are more affordable, yet still effective. Polycarbonate lenses with bright blue dielectric mirrors help reduce glare while on the road. They don’t cost an arm and a leg, but they still get the job done.
Chopper sunglasses are made for the American Chopper fan. They are actively worn by the main stars of the show, Paul Sr. and Paul Jr. and every pair has been approved by one or the other before being released to the public. If you are an American Chopper fan and also looking for a sweet pair of shades to wear while riding that hog, then you may find a match in a set of Chopper Sunglasses.
