It has now been almost 2 weeks since the king of pop, Michael Jackson, passed away at his Los Angeles home reportedly from a cardiac arrest, and as a tribute to his life and career spanning over 40 years with over 750 million albums sold and countless awards including 13 grammy’s, we at SelectSpecs.com have decided to celebrate his life by looking back at some of the sunglasses (and glasses) he wore throughout his career.
Michael Jackson’ Sunglasses
Jackson has regularly been seen wearing the popular Ray-Ban Aviator style frame throughout his career, including the Ray-Ban 3025.
His most recent appearance wearing the Ray-ban 3025 Aviator sunglasses was at the news conference announcement for his upcoming tour “This is it” at London’s O2 Arena. Jackson has also worn an alternative to the 3025’s, the slightly bolder Ray-ban 3030 Outdoorsman. Jackson also went through a period of wearing the iconic Ray-ban Wayfarer, a style that every celebrity seems to love at the moment.
Michael Jackson’ Glasses
Jackson has also been photographed wearing normal prescription style glasses rather than sunglasses. Unfortunately we are unable to identify the frames he is wearing here. RIP Michael Jackson – 1958 – 2009

Which glasses? we sell both the Wayfarer and Aviators on our website all linked to in the post above.
Were Michael Jackson’s sunglasses prescription glasses as well?
Please HELP “What is the part of the eye that causes red eyes on a photo?”
Where can I bye the normal prescription glasses that michael jackson has because they look hot;)
where can i buy the ones he had on at the news conference announcement for his upcoming tour “This is it” at London’s O2 Arena.
hey chris which colour are michael jacksons in the conference
hey chris the link you gave me they dont look very black and are they exactly the same
The Frame is Black.
Lenses are Crystal Grey.
We take our pictures using a light box, so they are lit from all angles including behind which makes the lenses seem lighter in our picture.
so the black frame and crystal grey lenses are exactly the same colour as he was wearing and they look dark in real
The lenses will look darker to other people when you wear them because they won’t be lit from behind like they are on our website.
The light box we use to take pictures of glasses lights them from all angles including behind.
how can i buy the same colour ones he wears at the conference announcement for his upcoming tour “This is it” at London’s O2 Arena.
What pair of sunglasses did he wear when he mets President Reagan.
Okay can someone please tell me what kind of glasses he was wearing when he met president Reagan?
Where can I find the wayfarers just like MJ’s.
Jake, the closest thing I could find to the 80’s glasses are Rayban Wings. Looks just like what he had on at the 84 Grammys. Hope this helps.
Any other MJ fans out there planning to watch the TV Guide Network’s upcoming Michael Jackson special, Gone Too Soon, airing June 25th? I am really excited about it!

Any body out there familiar with a pair of sun glasses that came out in the early 90's that featured Jackson's signature logo? It's a one piece lense and frame and the stalks actually fold into the frame and disappear. The ear pieces fold up as well All plastic definetley made in china comes in a green and black plastic case that clips onto your belt also signed only name on the is Monogram?
