Ray-Ban was founded in 1937 with a lightweight pair of aviator sunglasses. Made of mineral glass to filter out infrared and ultraviolet rays, they became standard issue for US Army Air Corps pilots. In '52, they introduced the classic black Wayfarer. Both styles remain unflinchingly stylish and have gone on to be the best-selling sunglasses in the world. If you want the quality, style and history without the ubiquity, Ray-Ban just introduced a new, vintage-inspired style called the Meteor. With a midcentury-influenced design along with throwback colors and durable crystal lenses, they make ideal everyday shades whether you're dressed up or down. So even if you can't jet to a mid-winter vacation, at least you can block the sun in style.
