Authentic Ray-Ban Sunglasses & Ray Ban Lenses

Ray-Ban Sunglasses Ray-Ban RB3025 Large Metal Aviator SunglassesAn international leader in designer sunglasses brands known worldwide for creating some of the best sunglasses on the market today, Ray-Ban has enjoyed a long and colorful history.

The sleek and distinctive aviators date back to the 1930s when these polarized sunglasses were specifically developed as light-weight "eye protection" to help military aviators pilot their aircraft safely and comfortably at higher altitudes under an unforgiving sun. The original Aviator lenses were created using mineral glass, a revolutionary technique for blocking harmful UV rays from the eyes of pilots.

The Rising Popularity of Ray Ban Sunglasses

Once the "aviator sunglasses" were made available to the general public, Ray-Ban became a favorite choice of sunglasses for men. Throughout the 20th century, aviators were worn by historic figures such as General Douglas MacArthur, popular musicians such as Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, and Freddie Mercury, and film celebrities such as Tom Cruise, Val Kilmer, and Sylvester Stallone. The Aviator became a symbol of courage, grit, excitement, and victory.

After World War II, the brand expanded its artistic horizons with the fun, striking, and sometimes flamboyant cat-eye sunglasses. This playful and elegant style of sunglasses has been worn by fashionable women ever since.

In the 1950s the company introduced the sensational Wayfarer sunglasses, one of the most enduring fashion icons of the 20th century. The Wayfarer line proved extremely popular in Hollywood, and over the years they have been worn by an endless parade of notable movie stars and well-known musicians, including James Dean, Peter Fonda, Kim Novak, Marilyn Monroe, Bob Marley, Bob Dylan, the Blues Brothers, Tom Cruise, Bruce Willis, Michael Jackson, Madonna, Katy Perry, Bruno Mars, and Robert Pattinson. Even President John F. Kennedy wore Wayfarers. They became a standard of modern eyewear design and are still incredibly popular today.

Classic, Retro & Vintage Style a Hit with Pop Culture

The traditionally-styled and stunning Clubmaster browline sunglasses were introduced in the 1980s. With a classic retro design and vintage feel reminiscent of earlier times, the Clubmaster went on to become the third best-selling sunglasses of the decade, behind the Wayfarer and the Aviator. In fact, it is difficult to find a pair of sunglasses today that do not harken back in some way to the Aviator, the Wayfarer, or the Clubmaster.

With such deep roots in popular culture, colloquially the brand’s sun glasses have come to be referred to as simply "Ray-Bans."

The company has evolved into a premiere fashion brand by helping to shape popular culture, and the sunglasses are a major appeal for the brand. Beyond a fashion trend, these sunglasses identify the wearer as tasteful, bold, and cool. From Hollywood to the Oval Office, generations of Americans have owned or wanted to own a pair of Ray-Ban sunglasses. And now, nearly eight decades since the legendary aviator helped pilots soar higher into the heavens than ever before, this lifestyle brand continues to excel at quality, innovation, and style.

Sunglass Customer Testimonials

Scott Chernick / Providence, Rhode Island
The glasses are awesome! The reason I say this is because usually when I try to save money it usually results with an inferior product! Not in this case! Thanks again!

I am beyond thrilled with my new Ray Bans. You were the only company that was able a pair of 3025 in the 62mm size. I live in LA and a local retailer offered to order a pair at a cost of $180.00. I was ready to get them until I found your site. I am about to renew my prescription for contacts. I will definitely be using Framesdirect from now on. I love my new sunglasses even more than I thought I would. Thank you for the great service. I am telling everybody about FramesDirect.
