The brand Ray Ban is worldwide known and one of the most popular brands in the sunglasses industry. 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.
