Ming's Notes

These are our mum's favourite sunglasses. Based on the P3, a Hollywood icon from the 1950s, the MTO is a modern classic for men and women. Since launching it in 2017, we have focused on its versatility, making it in 2 fits, 3 sizes and 40+ colours. Many customers end up getting it in 2 or even 3 different colours. Evidently, you can never have too much of a good thing!

5 Key Details

  • Clear CR-39 lenses block 100% of UV rays, reduce glare, and resist scratches.
  • 2 fits, 3 sizes and 40+ colours ensure the perfect frame for your face. Pro tip: you can add clear lenses to any of our sunglasses frames.
  • Handcrafted acetate frames are sturdy, lightweight (only 29 g) and malleable.
  • You can adjust the temple arms (without needing heat) for a tighter or looser fit around your ears.
  • 5-barrel stainless steel rivet hinges secure the front frame to the temple arms.

How to Order Prescription Lenses

Shape History

The MTO offers a classic, understated look for men and women: it is based on the P3, a round frame shape designed for U.S. soldiers during WWII and worn by 1950s Hollywood movie stars like Grace Kelly and James Dean.

Buying sunglasses online can feel risky.

But it doesn't have to be.

We want to help you make an informed decision, so here are 3 common reasons some customers (about 1 in 20) return their Rockets:

1. "The shape doesn't suit me."

For our first 6 years, we focused on only one shape: the MTO.

Named after our Mum, it's a classic, round frame based on the P3.

It suits most faces but not all.

So we designed the SPT — a rectangular frame based on the iconic wayfarer.

The SPT, we say with confidence, flatters all face shapes.

Check it out!

2. "It's too big (or small)."

Most customers like our Original (143 mm wide) frame size.

It offers a slightly oversized look for medium to medium-large heads.

If you need smaller frames, try Tailored (136 mm wide) or Small (132 mm wide).

Unsure about your size?

Use a ruler to measure the width of your current favourite glasses or sunglasses.

Pro tip: most customers like their sunglasses a little oversized.

3. "They sit on my cheeks."

If you have high cheekbones relative to your nose bridge, choose Raised "Asian" Fit.

It features 12-mm nose pads that position the frames higher on your face and away from your cheeks.

We review every order, and if we think there may be a better fit or size for you, we will check with you before shipping.

If you have any questions, please email us

We're here to help!

Your Rockets should feel snug.

If they're too loose or too tight, you can adjust them by bending the temple arms, which are thin and malleable.

Don't worry — you're not going to break them.

If they're too loose

Bend the arms inward and tips downward so that they grip the back of your ears.

If they're too tight

Bend the arms outward and tips upward for more space between the frames and your face.

You can see a video on how to adjust your Rockets here.

P.S. If you have any questions about how to adjust your Rockets, email us at any time! We adjust every pair of Rockets by hand before shipping and would be happy to show you how to do it too!

Loving my third pair of Rockets!

This is my third pair of Rockets - adding the Hibiscus Crystal & Fawn Tortoise to my collection. I love these glasses! They look so cute, and every single pair fits exactly the same - perfectly balanced - so I have absolute confidence that when I buy them, they will fit. And I’ve had so many compliments on the pink frames! Also many thanks for the quick responses to the email queries re shipping - really appreciate the great service.

Great, affordable sunnies!

After deliberating a longggg time between the MTO and SPT, I got a pair of MTOs for my husband as a surprise.

Reading the reviews and comparing the many pictures from Rocket Eyewear’s official ig page helped me in my decision making, especially when selecting the colour way (spoilt for choice) of the pair I got! I was pleasantly surprised when it was delivered within 3 days. The MTOs (raised fit) framed my husband’s face perfectly and is most importantly, very comfortable without compromising style!

Thanks for the great product and personal touch with the self-written note on the invoice!

Sweet sunnies

Received them in no time, great quality, great lenses, great fit.

PS. Looks great too :)

Great Quality & Perfect Fit

Really impressed with the ease of ordering my sunglasses online using your size guide and measuring my current pair for an accurate measurement. I received them in less than a week of ordering and the colour and size are perfect! Happy customer.

Great product

Went down to their display at Tangs Orchard because I wanted to try them on first. No regrets. The raised Asian fit made a world of difference and the entire frame and weight sat comfortably. This is my first pair of rockets and I'm extremely happy with it :D
