MTO P3 Classic Sunglasses (Launch Edition)


Chosen: Emerald/Pea Green with Green Polarized Lenses
In the product pictures, all models wear Original (143 mm wide), which is slightly oversized.

Choosing the right size is key. To find it, please measure your favourite glasses or sunglasses and refer to our "Fit and Size Guide" below the red button.

Fit

Featuring 12-mm nose pads, Raised Fit frames sit higher on your face than Standard Fit ones.

If you have high cheekbones relative to your nose bridge, or glasses often slide down your nose, sit on your cheeks or move when you smile, our Raised Fit frames offer long-lasting comfort. A happy customer named Dory once said, "They pass the smile test!"

Tiffany wears Raised Fit.

Standard Fit frames, on the other hand, are perfect for you if you have a high nose bridge relative to your cheekbones.

Zenos wears Standard Fit.

Apart from the nose pad, Raised and Standard Fit frames are identical.

We came up with Raised and Standard Fit because Singaporeans are super diverse, and so are our noses. 

Frame Size

To find your ideal frame size, you can measure the frame width of your current sunglasses and compare it with our three sizes:

  1. Original (143 mm wide)
  2. Tailored (136 mm wide)
  3. Small (132 mm wide)

Please measure. Doing so helps you know with certainty which frame size to choose.

Generally, we recommend women try Original because it offers a flattering, slightly oversized look. Based on our sales data, most female customers prefer Original: in fact, more than half of those who initially order Tailored find it too small and end up exchanging to Original.

With male customers, our data shows half of them liking Original and the other half preferring Tailored. 

Pro tip: measure your glasses and refer to this diagram.

Our Sizes: A Brief History

In 2017, we launched Rocket with only one frame size: Original (143 mm wide). Slightly oversized, Original suited men and women in Singapore, most of whom prefer a medium to large fit.

As soon as we expanded overseas to Australia and the U.S., however, we noticed a trend: 95% of returned orders came from white male customers who wanted smaller Rockets.

L to R: Mahogany Tortoise (Original), Hunter Green Clear (Tailored) and Crystal (Small)

Based on this feedback, we created two smaller sizes: Tailored (136 mm wide) and Small (132 mm wide).

If you like the standard glasses frame size found in most Western countries, choose Tailored.

If you need narrow frames, try Small but believe us: it's small. A customer named Natalie from Australia once emailed us about her Small Rockets with the subject line "too small!!" We believe this statement is accurate for most individuals.

Currently, all our frames are available in Original, while a select number are available in Tailored and Small. You can see the colours with smaller sizes here.

Rocket Founders Picture

We're Ming and Shing, a brother-and-sister team from Singapore. Between us is our mum, whose knack for losing her sunglasses in extraordinary places inspired us to start Rocket.

On her return from the temple of Nagadeepa in Sri Lanka's Jaffna peninsula, she accidentally left her shades in a boat. In Lalibela, Ethiopia, she took them off inside the Church of St. George and never saw them again. While she was riding a chairlift up Corviglia in St. Moritz, Switzerland, they slipped off her lap and disappeared into deep powder snow. The list continues...

Every time she loses a pair, she returns to her favourite P3 shape - a classic, round frame originally designed for U.S. soldiers during WWII and worn by 1950s movie stars like Grace Kelly, Gregory Peck and James Dean. As a gift for Mum, we re-designed her signature P3s with a travel-inspired twist and named them after her initials: MTO. She liked them so much she wanted two. So we made more, and we hope you like them too!

Started by Two Siblings, Twelve Years Apart

Ming Rocket

En Ming Ong

Ming was born in Singapore and studied Economics at Harvard College. He climbs stairs two at a time, grabs Cheetos by the handful and loves ice-cold G&Ts. He came up with the idea for Rocket after "borrowing" a beautiful pair of sunglasses he found in his mum's car.

Shing Rocket

Ker-Shing Ong

Shing was born in London and studied Fine Arts at Harvard College then Architecture and Landscape at Harvard’s Graduate School of Design. Alongside her husband, she runs award-winning Singapore-based Lekker Architects. She has four kids: three human, one canine (not pictured).

1. 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.

2. Two fits (Raised and Standard), three sizes (Original, Tailored and Small) and 24 color combinations ensure a personalised fit for unique facial features.

3. Polarised CR-39 lenses with anti-scratch coating provide 100% UVA/UVB protection, glare elimination and maximum visual clarity.*

4. Handcrafted premium acetate frames are sturdy, lightweight (only 29 g) and easy to adjust by hand without requiring heat.

5. Five-barrel stainless-steel hinges reinforce structural integrity, while an engraved ridge detail on the inner temple tips prevents slipping.

*Polarised lenses enhance vision when outdoors but are not for everyone. When you wear polarised lenses and look at your phone or certain car windows, you may see "rainbows." This effect occurs when you see other polarised surfaces through your polarised lenses.

In fact, pilots cannot wear polarised sunglasses because their cockpit and dashboard screens are also polarised—and we wouldn't want our pilots seeing rainbows while flying!

Yes, we can! In partnership with a Singapore-based optical lab, we can power your Rockets with prescription lenses.

Single vision, progressive, clear reading—you name it, and we'll do it.

To explore this option, please email us at help@rocketeyewear.com with a copy of your prescription, and we'll get back to you with more information.

If you prefer your Rockets feeling more snug or looser, there are two easy ways you can adjust them for a more personalised fit. In the video below, we show you step-by-step how to adjust your Rocket frames.

If you like them more snug...

Step 1: Bend temple arms inward so that they hug the sides of your head.

Step 2: Bend temple tips downward so that they sit closer to the curve of your ear.

If you like them looser...

Step 1: Bend temple arms outward so that they straighten and don't press against the sides of your head.

Step 2: Bend temple tips upward so that they flatten and don't feel like they're digging into the back of your ears.

If you have any questions, email us at help@rocketeyewear.com. We’d be happy to guide you through how to adjust your Rockets over a video call.

P.S. If you don't feel comfortable adjusting your Rockets yourself, feel free to bring them to us or any optician. We'd be more than happy to adjust them for you.

Although it may seem strange that we're giving you reasons to not get Rockets, we realise that ordering glasses online before trying them can take a leap of faith, and we want to help you make an informed decision.

To that end, here are the three most common reasons a small number of people—about 1 in 50—return their Rockets after trying them.

1. "They're too small (or big)."

Ideally suited to individuals with medium to medium-large heads, Original-sized Rockets (143 mm wide) offer a slightly oversized look that stays understated and elegant. However, if you want OVERSIZED frames, Rockets may not be suitable for you.

On the flip side, some individuals find Original-sized Rockets too big. Designed in Singapore, where many of us like our frames to cover the face (and more), Rockets are a little wider and taller than standard frames commonly found in Western countries.

We now offer four frames—Matte BlackCrystalMahogany Tortoise and Hunter Green Clear—in smaller sizes Tailored (136 mm wide) and Small (132 mm wide).

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

We believe that Rockets look great on a wide variety of faces. Our frame is based on the P3, a classic shape originally designed for U.S. soldiers during WWII and worn by Hollywood stars of the 1950s. But Rockets aren't for everyone: for example, you might not like them if you dislike roundish lenses...

3. "They still sit on my cheeks."

Our 12-mm-tall Raised Fit nose pads elevate the frame higher on your face and away from your cheeks. However, if your cheekbones are as high as your nose bridge, Raised Fit Rockets may not pass your smile test.

If you're still interested in getting some Rockets, we encourage you to give us a go. After all, with free shipping and free returns within 30 days, you can try our frames risk-free!

Within Singapore, we offer Free Standard Shipping and a 30-day money-back guarantee.

We cover 100% of the cost of shipping to and from your address, so you can try Rocket sunglasses risk-free!

For prescription orders, we still offer free 30-day returns on the frames but not on the lenses as the latter are made to order.

2. Two fits (Raised and Standard), three sizes (Original, Tailored and Small) and 24 color combinations ensure a personalised fit for unique facial features.

3 Reasons You May Not ❤️ Rockets

Although it may seem strange that we're giving you reasons to not get Rockets, we realise that ordering glasses online before trying them can take a leap of faith, and we want to help you make an informed decision.

To that end, here are the three most common reasons a small number of people—about 1 in 50—return their Rockets after trying them.

1. "They're too small (or big)."

Ideally suited to individuals with medium to medium-large heads, Original-sized Rockets (143 mm wide) offer a slightly oversized look that stays understated and elegant. However, if you want OVERSIZED frames, Rockets may not be suitable for you.

On the flip side, some individuals find Original-sized Rockets too big. Designed in Singapore, where many of us like our frames to cover the face (and more), Rockets are a little wider and taller than standard frames commonly found in Western countries.

We now offer four frames—Matte BlackCrystalMahogany Tortoise and Hunter Green Clear—in smaller sizes Tailored (136 mm wide) and Small (132 mm wide).

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

We believe that Rockets look great on a wide variety of faces. Our frame is based on the P3, a classic shape originally designed for U.S. soldiers during WWII and worn by Hollywood stars of the 1950s. But Rockets aren't for everyone: for example, you might not like them if you dislike roundish lenses...

3. "They still sit on my cheeks."

Our 12-mm-tall Raised Fit nose pads elevate the frame higher on your face and away from your cheeks. However, if your cheekbones are as high as your nose bridge, Raised Fit Rockets may not pass your smile test.

If you're still interested in getting some Rockets, we encourage you to give us a go. After all, with free shipping and free returns within 30 days, you can try our frames risk-free!
