Military Discount: Ray-Ban is one of the world's most well-known names in eyewear. The Ray-Ban label is synonymous fashion, and its influential heritage is reflected in every one of its unmistakable designs. Ray-ban has had a long standing relationship with our nation’s armed forces, dating back to the 1930s, when they invented the polarized aviators as protection for the eyes of the Air Force. Today, Ray-Ban aviators are still associated with the Air Force and with Police and law enforcement.
History of Innovation
During the evolution from its humble beginnings to the fashion powerhouse it is today, Ray-Ban created a series of designs that truly made their mark on the fashion world. These frames, including the aviator, the clubmaster, and the wayfarer are as popular and relevant today as they were when they were first released. Ray-ban has a history of trend setting and innovation that would lead to the creation of iconic frames throughout the twentieth century. Aviators were iconicized by great leaders such as General Douglas MacArthur, and famous actors such as Sylvester Stallone.
In the 1950s, Ray-Ban created the Wayfarer’s which were created out of a new material named Acetate. Today, Acetate is used in many glasses frames, but Ray-Ban was one of the first to make it popular. Such actors as James Dean and Bruce Willis could be seen wearing the frames.
Today, it is difficult to find a pair of glasses on the market that do not have some resemblance to either the Wayfarer, Aviator, or Clubmaster. Celebrities like Matthew Mcconaughey, Natalie Portman, Angelina Jolie, and Kiefer Sutherland still sport these fashions on the street and in their movies.
Men and Women’s Ray-Ban
Part of the appeal of Ray-Ban sunglasses is the variety. Most frames are unisex and come in a variety of color combination and style to fit your unique personality. Ray-Ban’s motto “NEVER HIDE” is a symbol of their commitment to working hard and constantly innovating Ray-Ban glasses. From the new, Tech Collection which features new models and frames made of new materials, to their new lense colors and combinations, there truly is a Ray-Ban pair of sunglasses for everyone.
