these sunglasses by the real mccoy’s are based on the prescription glasses used by the u.s. military in the late 1950’s and 1960’s. these glasses were dubbed "birth control glasses" due to their unstylish appearance. the real mccoy’s replaced the glasses with dead-stock lenses from the 1980’s (with 80-90% uv blocking), which give them a really cool appearance. the frame is made from celluloid which was developed in the 1860s and 70s as an alternative to ivory. so celluloid was the first synthetic plastic material ever made. celluloid plastic was eventually phased out with acetate taking its place due to it being highly flammable. the advantages of celluloid frames opposed to acetate is it's heavier weight, glossier finish and ability to less likely deform with wear. there are only a few factories in japan still producing celluloid today, making glasses of this calibre highly sought after.
