It looks like our big summer blockbuster is here after all. This past weekend, the new Top Gun: Maverick set the record for the biggest opening over the Memorial Holiday weekend ever, raking in an estimated $156 million in the U.S. according to Paramount.
And just like how fans were identifying the military fashion and accessories following the 1986 release of Top Gun, the same is happening with Top Gun: Maverick. This time, it's Tom Cruise's iconic Ray-Ban 3025 sunglasses. Good news: you can easily purchase the exact model online.

These sunnies rep a lot of what military pilots have worn for decades. Yes, they're timelessly stylish, and Ray-Ban's model comes in a couple of different sizes to flatter most face shapes. If you have an average face width then you'll be good to get the 55 mm size but if you think you'll need to size up go with the 58 mm. The difference in sizing hardly effects the weight, so whichever you go with you'll still have a pair of metal frames that are light as a feather (about 1.1 oz).
And if you're looking to upgrade your Tom-approved Ray-Bans, you can get the 3025 in a polarized version. The cost is about $50 more but if you anticipate throwing these into your daily style rotation—which is a legitimate power move—then the price bump is worth the investment.
Sometimes the best style upgrades can be found by looking at what's always worked. Grab a pair of these bad boys and officially enter your "summer cool guy" status.
