Ray-Ban Fun Fact—It All Began With Aviators
Originally designed as part of the required uniform for WW II pilots as an alternative to flying goggles, providing both anti-glare and UV protection. Aviators quickly became a must-have for men from all walks of life—and the first nationwide sunglass trend. Still the top choice of pilots today, and still a fashion staple for both men and women. Ray-Ban even offers aviators in clear-lens frames. However, with lens replacement, you can focus on the frame you want and add any lens you like. It all began with aviators, but Ray-Ban now has eyeglass frames in endless options, both on-trend and timeless.
