Established at the start of the aviation boom, Ray-Ban created their first anti-glare aviator sunglasses for U.S. Air Force pilots. Their polarized lenses would reduce pilot’s headaches and vision problems, improving safety during high altitude missions. In the early 1950s, the brand introduced their detail-sharpening Kalichrome lens technology to the general population, releasing their classic Wayfarer sunglasses. Today, Ray Ban’s genre-defining styles include Aviators, and Clubmaster frames fitted with multiple different lenses, depending on their function. Few brands have cemented themselves as the outright leader in eyewear fashion, but Ray-Ban is just that.
