DESIGN

All Four Westward Leaning Shapes

Westward Leaning sunglasses are currently available in four frame shapes. Each one has been thoughtfully designed and is constructed from the best materials available. Learn more about each style below:


PIONEER

Our very first frame shape, Pioneer is our universally flattering interpretation of the classic wayfarer.

Pioneer Unique Materials Pioneer Sizing Pioneer Lenses
  1. Unique Material: All of our sunglasses celebrate moments of human achievement and feature a unique material — from wood and aluminum to mother of pearl and created coral — on their temples that is specific to that achievement.
  2. Sizing: The exact measurements of a Westward Leaning wayfarer, 53-24-143mm, were chosen to be universally flattering.
  3. Lenses: All of our sunglasses feature CR39 plastic lenses, the best plastic lenses in the world. Our lenses undergo the most rigorous quality checks in the industry.

All Westward Leaning wayfarers are available in our standard size, carefully designed to be universally flattering for all male and female face shapes. However, a small portion of our customers prefer a smaller or a larger size than our standard fit. Therefore we added a scaled down version (the Small) and a scaled up version (the Large) to our collection, available in select styles.

BRIDGE FIT

Bridge Fit Westward Leaning Sunglasses

To further broaden the universality of our classic frame we designed Bridge Fit for everyone who wants a more secure fit over their nose bridge. Bridge Fit is identical to our classic Wayfarer frame with the exception of the added nose pads, which emulate the solid fit of an aviator.


VOYAGER

Both the round shape and universal fit of our Voyager frame is inspired by the Golden Record carried on all Voyager spacecraft.
