These vintage Ray Ban Aviator sunglasses are my personal favorites. I don’t think you can purchase a better pair of shades for this upcoming summer season then the 12k gold filled, made in America version of the Ray Ban Aviators. Here’s a quick history of B&L Ray Ban from Men’s Health:
“The history of the Ray-Ban aviator dates back to 1929 when General John MacCready, a US army Air Corps lieutenant, commissioned a team of technical design experts to create army pilot goggles that would stop his men suffering headaches and nausea caused by glare at altitude.Originally known as ‘Anti-Glare’, the glasses were soon rebranded to emphasise how this new accessory could effectively block (Ban) sun rays (Ray). With foresight, the company saw an opportunity to bring their frames to the masses, and in 1937 the Ray-Ban Aviator was born, becoming an instant classic. A status they’ve retained ever since..”
In 1999 Ray Ban was sold to Luxxxx……..ugh. Nevermind. I’m begging you – buy vintage Ray Ban’s.
