I know because I deliberately hunted a black full face helmet down and bought it along with the tinted black flat face shield. To me the mirrored modern face shields will never eclipse the evil look of the old style helmet and black shield. (Excepting of course the original Simpson bandit with a black face shield)

Sadly the nuclear arms race-like demand for helmet vents and crazy graphics plus off-short manufacture and 3D computer designed helmets/molds has eliminated the simple helmet market.
