Smith Gibson polarized sunglasses hark back to the days of mustache-adorned television stars and 4 channels of TV. Give your eyes that old school style with new school protection.


With the commitment to honor Magnum P.I.'s mustache, the Smith Gibson conjures memories of days gone with modern lines and lightweight construction.. . . Medium fit; medium coverage. Matte Black frame with Polarized Gray lenses for bright conditions with 15% VLT (Visible Light Transmission); reduce reflected glare and sharpen detail in true colors. Havanna frame with Polarized Brown lenses for medium to bright conditions with 15% VLT (Visible Light Transmission); absorb stray "blue light" and sharpen visual acuity while reducing reflected glare. Lenses provide 100% protection from harmful UVA/B/C rays. Polarized lenses reduce glare from snow, water, asphalt; provide truest color and object definition; reduce eye fatigue. Carbonic TLT lenses are optically corrected to maximize visual clarity and object definition. TLT: Tapered Lens Technology progressively tapers the lens from the optical center towards the outer edges for zero distortion and true optical clarity. Grilamid TR90 plastic frame: lightweight, durable, tough, and flexible-maintains its shape under all temperature conditions. Includes microfiber pouch that's great for cleaning lenses.


The Smith Optics Gibson Sunglasses are a throwback to the days when men's mustaches were bigger that their shorts. Even with bold styling, the Gibson lacks nothing in performance with Grilamid TR90 frames that are comfortable yet secure thanks to hydrophilic nose and temple pads and flexible arms.
