Top Rated Sunglasses

What distinguishes Ray Ban from any other luxury sunglasses brand is their devotion to bespoke design and movement with technology. Ray-Ban’s best sunglasses incorporate either a polarised or photochromic lens. The former lens is ideal for people whose eyes are light sensitive, the latter is used for prescription wearers when going in and out of direct sunlight.

Ray-Ban Styles

Ray-Ban boasts an impressive collection of eclectic and modern frame designs that they’ve managed to refine throughout the years. When investing in a new pair of sunglasses its worth trying before you buy.

The brand boasts six main male sunglasses designs. The Aviator, Wayfarer, Clubmaster, Round, Justin and Erika – with a recent addition, the Clubround being introduced to the main collection. Each design is fully customisable, from lens colour to frame design and a material of choice. For those brave street stylers out there why not opt for a denim fabric frame? It’s also worth considering the folding flash lens design for easy on-the-go use.

Aviator

The Ray-Ban Aviator embodies everything you’re looking for in a design meant for high-flying across the continent. Specifically designed for U.S. Aviators in 1937, the Aviator is iconic as it is classic. For those willing to don a slightly more magnified sunglasses frame the Aviator is an ideal choice, regardless of whether you’re up in the skies or shielding your eyes from direct sunlight down on the ground. Like all of Ray-Ban’s mod cons, you can personalise your Aviators in a luxe leather finish.

Wayfarer vs Aviator

If you’re considering investing in a classic piece from Ray-Ban, and you’re leaning on the Aviator over the Wayfarer, the key difference would be the overall aesthetic of the frame. The Aviator design has a much slimmer and flexible frame that compliments the wider lens, whereas the focal point of the Wayfarer glasses design is the frame itself.

Best Ray-Ban Aviators

The classic Aviator shape might not be to everyone’s taste, but luckily Ray-Ban has designed two alternative Aviator frames. The Outdoorsman RB3030 features all the classic lines of the Aviator with an enhanced brow bar, crystal lens and cable temples for a more secure fit.

Additionally you can opt for the La Havana Aviator Shooters, crafted with additional aviation-inspired design lines such as the central bullet hole, and thin temples to enhance peripheral vision with a bigger crystal lens.

Wayfarer

Referred by Ray-Ban as the ‘Legend’, this 1952 classic sunglasses shape first found its popularity in the late 1950s and early 1960s. Although that popularity soon declined it was thanks to Tom Cruise’s wearing of Wayfarers in the 1983 film Risky Business that ignited a huge cultural shift in the attitude towards the classic shape. There are many different styles of Ray Ban wayfarers so you are sure to find one a pair that suits you. The Wayfarer has been a favourite styling prop in many a Hollywood blockbuster, from Miami Vice, Moonlighting to the cult classic The Breakfast Club. Because of its slightly dramatic cat-eye appearance many questioned whether the Ray-Ban Wayfarer was meant for guys. You only need to study the long list of famous gents, from Michael Jackson, rock star Bono of U2 and pianist Billy Joel to notice the impact the design had on men’s style over the past few decades. Wayfarer is the perfect style for smart-casual men, they go with pretty much any outfit.

Comparatively each design has its own individual quirks. Consider the Original Wayfarer if you want to invest in some Ray Ban men’s glasses that will last a lifetime, never go out of fashion, and can be worn at practically any age. The New Wayfarer boasts a smaller and less angular frame than the original, and comes in a lighter acetate material for ease of wear. Ray-Ban makes the original and the best wayfarer sunglasses, other brands don’t come close.

Clubmaster

The Clubmaster may not be everyone’s first choice when you pit it against the classic heavyweights, but its popularity is slowly gaining momentum. What makes the Clubmaster unique is its retro 50s design that has fallen in favour with guys trying to achieve that vintage aesthetic. The Clubmaster is often chosen as a prescription frame for those wearers who need glasses as its well-proportioned dimensions suit almost any face shape.

Round

Another decade play from Ray-Ban is introduced with the design of their Round frames that harks back to the sunglasses worn by legendary musicians in the 1960s. Think John Lennon when considering the Ray-Ban Rounds. Their thin frame dimensions make room for a larger oval lens shape that can be worn by both men and women. Choose this style in a lightweight acetate finish, or a metal frame with dark gradient lenses.

Justin

For the rock n’ roll sunglasses wearer the Ray-Ban Justin provides just enough bad boy edge. Designed with a bold and semi transparent frame, the Justin design comes in an unusual rubberised finish that is unlike any other material from the Ray-Ban collection. Inspired by the iconic Wayfarer design the Justin Classic comes in seven colourways, ranging from classic black, tortoiseshell, brown and grey. The Ray-Ban Justin frames can also be customised in a fresh fade colourway in brighter shades of cobalt blue and red.
