Sunglasses season is here and if you want something new for this year, check out the latest Justin Sunglasses by Ray-Ban. Inspired by the classic Wayfarer style, these new shades feature rubberized frames with new gradient finishes in some bold colors. Available on Ray-Ban.com.
Now that we’ve implemented daylight savings and the weather is slowly starting to warm up – it’s time to start looking for some new shades. If you’re going to be on the move and need something portable, check out the Folding Wayfarer’s by Ray-Ban. They offer the same classic Wayfarer style but with three folding joints enabling you to reduce them to size of one lens. Shown above with bold orange frames and new “flash lenses” the Folding Wayfarer is also available in more traditional colors as well.
Original Ray-Ban Wayfarers are very cool, but if you’re trying to out-hipster the next guy, you may want to grab a pair of the limited edition Rare Print Patchwork Sunglasses. You can rock the plaid pattern all-over your shades or be a bit stealthier with versions that have the pattern on the inside of the frames. $160, $210 for Polarized.
Ray-Ban has successfully brought the Wayfarer back into style, and with men trying to channel the likes of Don Draper – other retro sunglasses are also making a big comeback. The Ray-Ban Clubmaster sunglasses line came out in the 80′s and are based on the popular 50-60′s browline style of eyewear (as seen on Colonel Sanders and Malcolm X). Proven to be timeless, a pair of Clubmaster sunglasses will greatly compliment your skinny tie this fall.
We’ve said it before, we’re big fans of Ray-Bans. We’ve also previously mentioned that we love Wayfarers, but sometimes you need to mix it up. The Ray-Ban 4147 is a slick pair of large and modern shades that still maintain the spirit of the Wayfarer. Lightweight and designed with comfort in mind, these polarized sunglasses will keep you feeling and looking cool this summer.
If you’re drinking some suds in the sun, you can kill two birds with one stone by wearing a pair of JackHawk 9000 Bottle Opening Sunglasses. Currently a Kickstarter project raising money for tooling and manufacturing costs, these polarized wayfarer-style shades are made with lightweight titanium – enabling them to be wearable yet, strong enough to open a beer bottle without damaging the glasses. These cool and innovative sunglasses are planned to hit the market for $90 and thanks to LiftLuxe for the tip on this cool project.
Spring is in full-effect and summer will be here before you know it. Why not invest in some quality shades for the upcoming sunny season? These Elmore Sunglasses by Von Zipper are inspired by the classic Wayfarer and definitely add a modern attitude. While they are designed to make you look like one of the cool kids rather than for use in physical activity, they do feature impact resistant lenses – which means they can withstand some quality day drinking. Plus they are polarized, so you’ll be able to scan for summer babes glare-free.
To celebrate their 75th anniversary, Ray-Ban has launched the Legends Collection. This includes the return of the Laramie for women, and retro Aviator, Round, and Meteor styles for the fellas. Available with vintage colored lenses, these sunglasses are a blast from the past. Shown above is the Ray-Ban Meteor with a Havana frame and blue lenses, and as with all of the shades in the Legends Collection – there is a selection of retro colors for both the frame and lenses. If you need to be even more exclusive, there is also a Johnny Marr limited edition pair available in the Ray-Ban Legends Collection for you collectors out there.
While we’re crazy about the classic styles of Ray-Ban, we’re also always eager to see some new models emerge. New for this fall are the Ray-Ban Brad Sunglasses shown above in dark grey frames with grey gradient lenses. The gummy textured frames feature a distinct double brow bridge bar and 100% UV protection. Styled in somewhat of a cross between the Wayfarer and the Aviator, these slick shades will set you back around $109.
