Aviator sunglasses have a very distinctive look. In fact, they are what most people will think of when you say sunglasses. (Maybe because they've been around the longest.)
The frames are made of very thin metal and designed to look stylish as well as be functional. The lenses themselves are over-sized and very often reflective.
These large lenses are slightly convex, not flat, and they are made to cover an area between 2 and 3 times the size of a person's eye. This design allows the Aviator to cover almost the whole range of the human eye to keep as little direct light as possible from reaching the eye. All angles are covered.
While the general public has embraced these sunglasses with a passion, they are noted for their special appeal to pilots and law enforcement officers. Who wouldn't want a great pair of shades that will protect their eyes and look great all at the same time?
The Ray Ban 3025 does just that. A combination of style and functionality that simply can't be beat. It's no wonder the Ray Ban brand is known for world class shades.
Do You Have a Pair of Ray Ban 3025?
Definitely. What started as a challenge to help out pilots turned out to be very profitable for the company, and lucky for us. I love Ray Bans!
Interesting. I didn't know aviator glasses of this shape were that old! Also nice to read about their shape: how they're slightly convex, etc. They were designed to be functional first and foremost :)
I just got a pair of Ray Ban Wayfarers for an early Mother's Day gift and all I can say is Wow! I love 'em!
I don't have a pair, but you make a convincing case for getting a pair.
I agree that Ray Ban kind of spoils us for other sunglasses. There just isn't any comparison really. And I love the fact that they come in so many frame and lens color combinations...so you can always find that perfect pair. Kind of like yours ;)
I do, I just purchased a new pair of prescription Ray Ban's when I went in to have my eyes checked. I got a new pair of glasses and a new pair of sun glasses. I got a really nice pair that matches my hair color and with polarized lenses no less. Once you go Ray Ban you'll never be happy with another pair of sunglasses. Now I just have to keep up with them, had just lost my other sunglasses I had just bought this summer. :)K
