From the U.S. military to the Men In Black, Ray-Ban has been synonymous with eyewear since its debut in 1937. The company Bausch & Lomb created Ray-Ban originally for the U.S. Army Air Corp. as sunglasses to protect aviators from the damaging rays of the sun. The “Aviator” soon became an iconic classic with plenty of trendy fashion re-emergences since its beginning. From Gen. Douglas MacArthur to Tom Cruise in “Top Gun,” aviators have been embraced by all. Of course the iconic black plastic Ray-Ban launched in 1952 as the Wayfarer has seen equal success and trendy representations. One of its mile marker re-emergences was in the 1980 film “The Blues Brothers.” John Belushi wore his Wayfarer in every scene, except when he took them off once to confront Carrie Fisher. Ray-Ban has been linked to Hollywood for decades due to its product placement contracts, but the general public has embraced the eyewear for its stylish appeal and durable nature.
