Ray-Ban

Founded in 1937 at the dawn of the aviation boom, Ray-Ban first supplied the U.S. Air Force with the original men’s aviator sunglasses: a style boasting a perfected anti-glare lens that would reduce the headaches and vision problems of pilots flying at high altitudes. Further innovations designed for outdoorsmen and the military, including gradient and detail-sharpening Kalichrome lenses, proved popular with civilians, and Ray-Ban’s introduction of the classic Wayfarer sunglasses in 1952 cemented its move into popular culture. Continuing to offer innovations in optics, design, and functionality, Ray-Ban combines timeless shapes with modern colorways and materials to maintain its place as a foremost name in eyewear.
