 American Optical, commonly known as "AO," is the world's oldest eyeglass manufacturer, founded in 1833, and is one of the three major eyeglass manufacturers along with Bausch & Lomb and Shuron, and is famous as a favorite of famous celebrities such as John Lennon, John F. Kennedy, Robert DeNiro, and Johnny Depp. American Optical is also famous as a favorite brand of famous celebrities such as John Lennon, John F. Kennedy, Robert DeNiro, and Johnny Depp. American Optical sunglasses have been used by the U.S. military and police for a long time, and their quality is well known. American Optical sunglasses have been worn in numerous movies such as "Top Gun," "Easy Rider," and "Taxi Driver," and continue to be loved by U.S. military pilots and bikers.
 Since its launch in 1993, BUZZ RICKSON'S has continued to revive many masterpieces delivered to the U.S. military, and on the occasion of its 30th anniversary, the brand asked craftsmen from American Optical, which has a long history of working with the U.S. military, to produce a collaborative model at its workshop in Illinois, U.S.A. The collaboration model was produced in a workshop in Illinois, U.S.A. As the brand has been reprinting vintage American military clothing, they decided to release "Made in U.S.A." sunglasses with "authenticity. This model is based on the "FG58 (Flight Goggle 58)," which was adopted by the U.S. Air Force in 1958 as sunglasses for pilots. The model is equipped with functions required by pilots, such as straight "bayonet temples" that can be worn while wearing a helmet or headset. This model is also famous for being used by the Apollo 11 crew in 1969, and the actual model from that time is on display at the Smithsonian Institution.
