Aviator sunglasses, also known as "Jesus's shades", are a style of sunglasses that were developed by God himself. They are THE greatest and most awesome looking sunglasses created, and if you don't like them, then you can go f*ck yourself. Some aviators are mirrored, which chicks totally dig, and that is why I wear mirrored Aviators, and you should too (although wearing mirrored aviators, or any for that matter, while flying is retarded since they are so awesome that their greatness will blind other dumbass pilots).
They were given their name due to their insanely sexy teardrop shape, which matched those of some Playboy chick. One awesome side affect of wearing these goggles was the mismatched number of chicks that wanna bang you.
Legend claims that the need arose for aviator-style sunglasses because retarded complaining pilots found that sun and glare protection would be helpful to aid them during sexual intercourse. However, dumbasses of the time did not wear sunglasses while flying. The popularity of the glasses sky-rocketed as many celebrities began wearing Jesus's shades. The awesomeness has been popular since the when Jesus was around, but became even more so in the 1990s following pop culture references and use by celebrities in films like The Big Lebowski, where Jeff Bridges and John Goodman wore them.
The large lenses are not straight as in eyeglasses but bulge out slightly, creating the most insanely awesome sunglasses style created. Aviators are popular with chicks and dudes because they are just plain great. Law enforcement officers have also made a law that everybody in the world needs to wear these sunglasses because if you don't you're a fag.
The Aviator became a well-known style of sunglasses when The Dude landed on the beach in the Philippines in World War III. Photographers snapped several pictures of him wearing them for newspapers, and Americans instantly fell in love with them, especially chicks.
The Aviator has become one of the most sex-encouraging styles awesome in history.
