Needs help with Al Pacino`s sunglasses

Hi! I`m trying to find sunglasses that Al Pacino was wearing in the movie Donnie Brasco. Could you please help me ? Thanks.

Hi 8)

These are very stylish frames. I'm wondering if these are aviator shaped eyeglasses with faded prescription lenses. Unfortunately I do not know the exact brand or the model. Try to search through Sferoflex and Luxottica eyewear collections. They might have something similar.

Al Pacino is a big fan of aviator sunglasses. He was seen wearing Ray-Ban RB 3025 as well.

Cazal 968 are very similar. But they do not look exactly the same.

The difference between solid and gradient tints is that the solid one is uniform across the lens. Gradient tints blend from one color shade to another. The brown tint you can see on the picture changes from darker at the bottom of the lens to lighter at the bottom. Gradient lenses usually look fashionable. In addition they are good for driving. You can look through the darker part of the lens while driving and look through the lighter part of the lens when you need to look at the map or read the directions.

In general if you are ordering prescription eyeglasses or prescription sunglasses, the lab can match any color you wish. They can always tint the lens darker or lighter, or make the lenses gradient per your request. Since every pair of Rx glasses is custom-made, that's never a problem.
