    New reproduction US GI Sunglasses. These are a unisex item - great for the average GI soldier or for a WAC. Based off of an original example of issued G.I. sunglasses from my collection. There were several various designs issued during the war; these, however, are extremely good looking sunglasses that will really set you apart, whether you are at a reenactment or even just for everyday wear. Wearing these feels like wearing originals - except these have UV protection and are shatter resistant (they meet all the FDA guidelines). The only real departure from the originals are the hinges, which are a modern type that is much more durable.

    These are slightly wider than the other reproduction US sunglasses we offer. The 1940's was a transitional period when everyone shifted from small frames to larger and larger frames. These are 100% correct to the original for size and fall much closer to a normal modern size.  The photos with two pairs in them are comparing the repro to the original. The inside edge of the ear piece has small ridges for added grip like the originals. The glasses are marked U.S. WES CO 44 on the inside of the left arm. WES CO stands for War's End Shop.

    Dimensions (approximate): 5 3/16" across and 4 7/8" between the arms, arm length to the hook of the earpiece is 4".

    These are designer quality sunglasses custom made to our specifications. They are copied from an original pair and made exclusively for War's End Shop. The actual suggested retail was several hundred dollars and they do feel like expensive sunglasses. You can really treat yourself without spending designer sunglasses money.
