Cleared for takeoff: a full-throttle tribute to the First American Volunteer Group (AVG), better known as the “Flying Tigers.” Comprised of pilots from the US Army Air Corps, Navy, and Marine Corps, the Flying Tigers famously gained prestige for their fearless airborne pursuits and gutsy flight tactics during World War II.
This pair brings the iconic look of the shark-faced Curtiss P-40s to your face—complete with camo exteriors and authentic insignia. They’re bold, they’re fierce, and they’re sure as heck ready for action!

Modeled after the iconic Curtiss P-40s flown by the AVG, the Flying Tigers sunglasses are instantly recognizable. An olive-forest camouflage base paints the frame while metal seams and rows of rivets mimic the crafts’ armored hulls. Down each arm snarls the squadron’s distinctive nose art—a menacing shark face no enemy would want to stare down. A white star emblem and bright red end cap finish off each arm, while polarized sky blue lenses and shining silver K logos lend the pair a final touch of airworthy authority.
Designed on our most full-coverage frame style, the Torrey Pines provide extra-wide lens coverage, UV400 protection (like all of our lenses), and spring hinges to accommodate even the largest faces. Every pair comes with an “At Altitude” protective pouch and a holographic numbered edition card.
