Rayban Wayfarer Sunglasses

Ray Ban sunglasses were founded in 1937 after Lieutenant John MacCready had commented about how the sun had done permanent damage to his eyes after he returned from his balloon flying trip in 1920. Bausch and Lomb had come up with the idea to make protection for a person’s eyes after they had been contacted by MacCready. These sunglasses lenses were designed to protect while the frames were designed to be elegant and sophisticated. Ray Ban soon came out with many different collections. Some of these collections are Predator, Undercurrent, Aviator, Wayfarer, Sidestreet, Highstreet, Outsiders, and Orbs.

The Ray Ban Wayfarer, also known as 5022c15, sunglasses were created in 1952. The Wayfarer offered an original look. The frames were no longer metal, but made of plastic. The shape of the sunglasses was like none had ever seen before. These sunglasses had become the next big thing especially after Audrey Hepburn was spotted wearing them in the movie Breakfast at Tiffany’s in 1961. The fad had faded, like every fad does, in the 70’s. Now that the new millennium is here, history seems to be making a comeback. Many dealers have noticed the sales are starting to pick up again for the Ray Ban Wayfarer sunglasses. Many dealers have said that the Wayfarer is by far the most popular, original sunglasses to ever be sold.

One of the best things about the Ray Ban Wayfarer sunglasses is that you can find them with polarized lenses. Polarized lenses reduce the glare on a flat surface. Many fisherman and boaters prefer to use models that are polarized because of this. Polarized sunglasses reduce glare from the road, too, so if you drive a lot you should consider using polarized.

Shopping for sunglasses online can be fun, but yet tricky. You will first want to try them on in person before you make any purchases. A good optical retail store will let you take them outside to give them a real test drive, make sure they are what you want. Once you find the pair that you desire, search online for a cheaper price. Online shopping can be dangerous, so make sure you only shop from a secure site that has a good reputation and has never been reported to the BBB. Also be on the lookout for imitations. You might be interested in purchasing imitations since the price is much cheaper. To the untrained eye, the imitations look exactly like authentic Ray Ban Wayfarer sunglasses. If you are determined to purchase official Ray Ban sunglasses, then you will want to do your research to know what to look for in fake ones.

If you are looking for a fashionable pair of sunglasses that will protect your eyes, try the Ray Ban Wayfarer sunglasses. When you make your purchase and receive your sunglasses, take special care of them. You should always first try to blow any dust and dirt off of the lenses before you touch them. If you need to wet the lenses, use only water. A micro fiber cloth is the only type of cloth that should come in contact with the lenses. This will prevent your lenses from becoming scratched. When you are not wearing your sunglasses, keep them in a hard shell case. If you don’t have a hard shell case, a soft case will work until you purchase a hard case. Take care of your glasses and they will make you happy for a long time.

Why Ray Ban Sunglasses?

Everyone knows the famous Wayfarer and Aviator Styles and everybody wants them. Not only because so many Stars from Hollywood and politicians wear these sunglasses (like the French president Nicolas Sarkozy and his son), it is as well a quality question.

RayBan glasses are made from high quality materials in Italy and offer a great protection against the dangerous UV rays. Of course, the look plays a very important role, too. The Designers of the glasses have worked very hard to create the perfect fashion model and this has been happening for a very long time. The company Ray Ban has existed since 1937 with Bausch & Lomb as a manufacturer. These days, Bausch & Lomb is not taking part in the distribution; today it is the Italian company Luxottica. Luxottica bought the label 1999 for a few million dollars.

The two most famous models are as mentioned above the Aviator and Wayfarer Style. All pilots of the US Air force and the Navy are wearing the Aviator glasses as part of their uniform. The Wayfarer got very famous after the movie “the blues brothers” and “men in black”. But the most famous person wearing the Ray Ban Wayfarer sunglass was Ray Charles. Even though he was blind, he almost never left the house without his sunglasses.
If you want to buy a new pair of sunglasses, buy a Ray Ban because the quality, the fame, the look and the fair price make it a good and fashionable investment.

Sunglasses Style

Designer sunglasses are more than just UV protection for your eyes. They are a fashion statement.

I see more and more people wearing sunglasses at night and inside, where there is no sun light. Now more than ever, sunglasses or SHADES are the style. Celebrities where sunglasses all the time! I can’t remember the last time I saw Britney Spears photographed without a pair of designer sunglasses on her face!

In the 80’s Cory Hart had a famous song title “I wear my sunglasses at night”. At that time everyone wore sunglasses, especially at night 🙂 20 years later the fashion trend is repeating itself. But now it is easier to obtain high end sunglasses, like Gucci and Christian Dior, thanks to the internet.

High end designer sunglasses can be very pricey! Many websites including eBay sell fakes, or “designer inspired”. Unfortunately, not all of them tell you that their glasses are not authentic. If you do a bit of investigating, it’s not too hard to tell what the fakes are! Remember an authentic pair of Dolce & Gabbana sunglasses will not cost $6.99, and they always use the & in between D&G – a knock off brand will call themselves authentic D G sunglasses for example. Also, top brands such as Dior, Porsche design and Tom Ford will come with a nice presentation box and authenticity papers when they are new. When buying on eBay or other auction sites, always look closely at the photos, or ask for more photos.

Some popular styles of sunglasses for this summer are Over sized – seen on Paris Hilton a lot! Juicy Couture, and Prada make stylish over-sized framed sunglasses, as well as Tom Ford, DIOR, and Gucci. Aviator sunglasses never go out of fashion, so they are a good investment! Even knockoff or cheap aviator sunglasses look good on both men and women. Wayfarer shades are back! This wayfarer retro look was brought back mostly by rayban – whose sunglasses are high quality, yet gentle on the budget! Shield sunglasses are hot for the sporty type, and wrap sunglasses are always in style for men.
