Ray Ban™ was founded in 1937, by Bausch & Lomb™. The company started with aviators that were perfectly named because they were made for the U.S. Army Air Corp. The aviator sunglasses were designed to protect the airmen from the sun while they flew, but they also had to look good to get more recruits. They became so popular that Douglas MacArthur wore the Ray Ban aviators, Ray ban patented them and they became the unofficial sunglasses for U.S. aviators.
Ray Ban took on the next legendary sunglasses design when they made wayfarer sunglasses. These are the Ray Ban sunglasses that Audrey Hepburn, James Dean, Marilyn Monroe, John Lennon and John Belushi in The Blues Brothers movie wore. The wayfarer sunglasses were so popular because the stars wore them and because the large, hard plastic frames were flattering for all face shapes. Later on, the Ray Ban wayfarer sunglasses returned to the top of fashion when Tom Cruise wore them in Risky Business.
Ray Ban sunglasses are timeless sunglasses that are always in fashion. Whether you are rocking the wayfarers or aviators, Ray Ban sunglasses give you a glamorous look that has stood the test of time since 1937. Ray Ban straddles the line between vintage and prime fashion. When you are looking for your best look in sunglasses, whether you are an Audrey or a Marilyn, Ray Ban sunglasses are it.
