  • Description

    Reproduction German MG round rim Blendschutzbrille sunglasses with acetate faux tortoise shell frames and green UV lenses. Vintage look and feel with modern durability and protection. This is a very stylish pair of sunglasses that really stands out and would be just as good for everyday use as for reenacting. The style of the glasses and the fit is like the original; they are relatively sleek compared with the bulky modern glasses people are used to these days. See the original photos to get an idea of how they are supposed to fit. No, their heads were not particularly smaller back then, they just had a different style. They not only look the part, but putting them on feels like wearing original period glasses. Inside the arm they are marked "Ges. Gesch." (a common period marking similar to a patent)

     

    Dimensions: 4 7/8" between the arms, arm length to the start of the bend is 3 3/4". 

     

    This style is appropriate for any period of the war. These closely replicate one of the many versions that were issued to drivers, machine gunners, etc. These are not an exact copy of any one pair, but rather a combination of the best features selected for durability and style. These are the largest size I feel comfortable making to maintain the correct look without being too oversized. They are more narrow than modern sunglasses. Very comparable to original Dienstbrille in size.

    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.
