Perhaps no sunglass manufacturer is more iconic to American culture than Ray-Ban. The brand dates back to the 1930s when Army pilots wore them as a way to reduce headaches and nausea created by the blue and white hues in the sky. That led to the Aviator which was soon followed by the Outdoorsman, intended for hunting, shooting and fishing enthusiasts.
Then came the Wayfarer, which became synonymous with Hollywood thanks to film icon James Dean who wore them in the 1955 movie “Rebel Without a Cause.”
Today, Ray-Bans’ place in history is secure. They are as American as apple pie, John Wayne, hot dogs and hamburgers, Levis and Bugs Bunny, but with an edge. They have not only withstood the test of time; they have become a symbol of rebellion and individuality, all while maintaining an aura of coolness and confidence.
