Timeless Design with Modern Craftsmanship

Alden sunglasses blend American Optical’s iconic heritage with handcrafted luxury acetate and a distinctive keyhole bridge. Each pair features AO’s signature decor detailing, adding a touch of nostalgia and style. This vintage-inspired decor, a hallmark of AO safety glasses, first appeared in the mid-20th century. The Alden draws design inspiration from one of the most iconic safety frames, known for its V7 shape.
