Ray-Ban Aviator sunglasses were developed by Bausch & Lomb in 1936 to protect the eyes of pilots while flying airplanes. Unlike other types of designer sunglasses these feature dark, reflective lenses with an area two or three times the size of your eye. The glasses also feature thin, metal frames with a double or triple bridge, flexible cable temples, ear hooks, and bayonet earpieces.
Although the original purpose of the Ray-Ban Aviator was to prevent as much light as possible from getting into pilots eyes from all angles, the style has transformed into one of the hottest trends on the fashion market. General Douglas MacArthur first made the style popular when he was photographed wearing them at a beach in the Philippines during World War II. Beginning the 1960’s, the style became an iconic symbol in pop culture thanks to celebrities like Paul McCartney, Tom Cruise, Val Kilmer, and Sylvester Stallone. Although the style waned in the 1990’s, it came back with a vengeance in the early 2000’s and hasn’t gone anywhere since.
Ray-Ban Aviator sunglasses
Currently Ray-Ban Aviator sunglasses feature more variety in colours, lenses, and frame styles than ever before. You can choose from an overwhelming variety of metal frames in silver, gold, bronze, and gun metal colours. There are also Ray-Ban Aviator sunglasses in colorful plastic frames and sturdy carbon fiber frames. No matter which sturdy frame style you choose, you’ll have your choice between standard colours like brown and black, as well as bold colours like red, green, and blue. If you’re not flying an airplane, you can experiment with lenses that aren’t the traditional dark variety. Ray-Ban Aviator lenses come in fresh, fun colours like pink, yellow, and blue.
Sunglass designs, like Ray-Ban Tech sunglasses, use the most innovative materials to give you a great look with a lightweight, resilient design. Carbon fiber and resin materials weigh less than an ounce, so you’ll often feel like you’re wearing nothing at all. Although the style look great on almost everyone, they’re particularly flattering on medium and large face sizes.
When wearing Ray-Ban sunglasses, you’ll come to appreciate all the intricate details in the eyewear including etched out temples for design, rubber padded tips for comfort, and the trademark double brow bar for classic style. The durable crystal lenses in Ray-Ban Aviator sunglasses ensure clarity while you’re busy living your life to the fullest. These glasses are prescription-lens friendly and also can be combined with polarized lenses for ultimate glare prevention and a hydro-oleophobic coating for the best eye protection available.
