It all started here: The classic Westward Leaning sunglass, Pioneer was our debut frame shape. We set out to create the perfect wayfarer using only the finest materials and best craftsmanship. Each frame is meticulously handmade in Japan and features high-quality shatterproof lenses with 100% UV protection. The Pioneer shape was designed to be comfortable and flattering on all face shapes. Its super-durable construction and smooth, high-quality hinges ensure these will be your favorite shades for years to come.
Layer it on: Pioneer 17 features our super-popular layered tortoise acetate in a matte finish. The outside of the glasses is a classic tortoise color, while the inside is a translucent deep blue. An ivory middle layer adds a graphic pop to the rim of the glasses. Super silver mirrored lenses and faux ivory side inlay complete the look.
Frame Color: Matte Layered Tortoise Acetate
Lens: Super Silver Mirror
Signature Side Inlay: Faux Ivory
Pioneer, our first design launched in 2012, is an original take on the wayfarer shape which pays tribute to California's pioneering heritage. It represents our hope, determination, and goodwill for California's future and is the gold standard of our collection.
All Westward Leaning sunglasses are designed to be flattering and comfortable on every face. Our handmade acetate frames are highly adjustable for the perfect fit, from very loose to very tight. Learn more about how to adjust the fit of your glasses here.
