These Iconic Sunglasses Are Your Steve-McQueen-JFK-Buzz-Aldrin Deal of the Day

Just because it's winter doesn't mean the sun has gone away. In a few months it will be summer and sunglass season again. That's a certainty. Also a certainty: right now is an excellent time to purchase sunglasses. While everyone's forgotten about protecting their eyes from UV rays because it's a little chilly, sunglass retailers and manufacturers are discounting like crazy to prop up demand, and Amazon's price matching. The result? A perfect chance to buy an iconic luxury sunglasses at very un-luxury prices. Cop them now, because when you want them in May you'll be paying full price. They also make excellent gifts (hint, hint.)

Here are three excellent pairs for cheap today:

If these sunglasses are good enough for Buzz Aldrin, they're good enough for your face. There are two manufacturers currently making aviator sunglasses in the USA to military spec, and Randolph Engineering's version made some of our gift guides. But the cheaper version is the American Optics Pilot, which is currently selling at Optics Planet for $38 minus another 5% with the coupon code GIZMODO5, and that looks like the lowest price on the nets. These sunglasses are already an excellent value, and I've gotten a bunch of emails from readers looking for the best price on these exact glasses. [Optics Planet]

Hot, iconic Persol 714 sunglasses. We're fans of them here at Gizmodo, although mostly from a distance. That's because their unique style (rocked by Steve McQueen in The Thomas Crown Affair) is damn expensive. If you were to walk into your local Sunglass Hut, these guys would run you $360. If you were to buy them from Amazon last week, they were $250. Now they're $165 from Amazon. The black model (my personal favorite) is $25 more. [Amazon]

What is there to say about the Wayfarer that hasn't already been said? Even if you're not a sunglasses aficionado you see them all the time if you ever watch TV or movies. These are the new, slightly updated version, but at $84 for the black version now's the time to get them. If you want the Tortoiseshell, like the very dapper JFK, your best bet is here for $89 (they've also got the black for $89 as well if Amazon's sold out of your size.) List price is a whopping $150.
