Oliver Peoples Sunglasses style Jack One. Sunglasses inspired by a frame worn by Neil Diamond. The unique ‘JACK ONE’ design has an interesting story behind it… In the late 70s, Los Angeles-based optician Jack Schulsinger hand-molded a standard metal aviator into an edgy, custom shape for one of his regular customers, Neil Diamond. The look was much different from the classic, tear drop, double bridge aviators of the day and soon became a signature style that Neil wore on tours, album covers and in interviews. Each one of the frames were handmade by Jack, so the design was never actually put into production. Oliver Peoples Founder and Creative Director Larry Leight, along with his brother and Co-Founder, Dennis, remembered the buzz around the custom-made style and when they recently stumbled on a picture of Neil wearing it, they were inspired to find a way to recreate it. Dennis Leight started his career in eyewear working for Jack Schulsinger. “Jack was my mentor and I’m thrilled we are making this frame in homage to him and his outstanding craftsmanship,” says Dennis. “It took a few rounds to get the shape exactly as I remember it, but I believe we were able to produce a final product that was very close to the original.”

This frame comes with G15 mineral glass exclusive sunglass lenses. The lenses have UV400 protection as well as Anti-Reflective coating on the inside to eliminate bounce back glare, relieve eye strain and to provide protection from the damaging rays of the sun, resulting in healthier eyes.
