Comprised of pilots from the US Army Air Corps, Navy, and Marine Corps, the First American Volunteer Group (AVG) quickly gained prestige for their fearless airborne pursuits in World War II. Nicknamed the “Flying Tigers,” this squadron employed numerous innovative flight tactics, utilizing every advantage their soon-to-be-iconic planes could offer them. Their hope-inspiring success record and distinctive equipment rendered them one of the most recognizable and revered groups in military history.
As our first Limited Edition using Torrey Pines, we wanted to make sure the design was bold, distinguishing, and memorable. Like always, the Flying Tigers were up for the task.

Modeled after the iconic shark-faced Curtiss P-40s flown by the AVG, the Flying Tigers Torrey Pines are a pair that doesn’t back down from anything. A brown-green camouflage base paints the frame while metal seams and rows of rivets mimic the craft’s armored hull. Down each arm snarls the squadron’s distinctive nose art—a menacing shark face no enemy wanted to stare down. A bullseye and yellow end cap finish off each arm, while polarized red sunset lenses and shining silver K logos lend the pair one 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 hand-numbered edition card.
