James Bond's CIA friend Jack Wade (Joe Don Baker) wears a pair of American Optical Aviator AN-6531 sunglasses in the movie GoldenEye (1995).

The sunglasses are famous for being used by American pilots in World War 2. Appriopriate eyewear for the character Jack Wade, who's a CIA agent, possibly former military, and he pilots a Cessna Sjyhawk plane when he meets James Bond (Pierce Brosnan).

The glasses worn by Jack Wade have a large aviator style frame and thick brow-bar, or 'sweat' bar.

When Jack Wade takes off his glasses, we can also see that the sunglasses have cable temples - the ends of the arms that curl behind/around the ear.

You can still easily find these type of sunglasses on eBay.
