For the movie First Man, where Ryan Gosling plays Neil Armstrong, authenticity was paramount. Neil Armstrong’s sunglasses were the FG-58 by American Optical. A pair of gold FG-58s was issued to each NASA astronaut to be used on reentry as a part of their survival pack. The style is still made today and is known as the Original Pilot. Ryan Gosling liked these aviators so much, he was often seen wearing them off set.
The Nice Guys Sunglasses: Randolph Engineering Aviators
In The Nice Guys, Gosling sports a similar style. The Nice Guys sunglasses are actually made by Randolph Engineering. You might be looking at them and having a hard time telling the difference from the First Man sunglasses. When choosing a pair of aviators, many struggle deciding…American Optical vs Randolph Engineering. It’s true that there are many similarities, not surprising as one of Randolph’s founders once worked for American Optical. We believe the value of the American Optical Original Pilot is unmatched given its quality.
Sunglasses in La La Land: Persol
In La La Land, Gosling plays a very different character than the previous. The artsier role demanded a different look, you don’t often picture jazz pianists in aviator sunglasses. Here, Ryan Gosling’s glasses are the Persol Cellor Original. It’s a lighter take on a classic browline look like the AO Sirmont.
Sunglasses in Crazy, Stupid Love: Selima Optique
Gosling’s character in Crazy, Stupid Love demanded a bolder pair of sunglasses that reflected the character’s personality. Here, Ryan Gosling’s sunglasses are the Chad from Selima Optique. The style presents a tough exterior that can be interpreted to represent the pathos of his womanizing behavior early in the film.
Sunglasses in Drive: Selima Optique
Ryan Gosling’s sunglasses in Drive are also from Selima Optique. The style is called Money 2. Playing a stunt driver required a style that feels edgier and projects bravado. Though these clearly take inspiration from the aviator shape, the look creates a completely different image than a style like the Original Pilot.
