The fashion world may be a fickle place, but some brands like Ray-Ban have managed to face the test of your time .

Thanks to their classic signature style, I’m pretty sure most of you’ve got owned a pair of their iconic sunglasses at one point in your life, and likelihood is that so did your parents. In fact, it’s highly probable your Nanny Pat and your Grandad George also owned a pair, before they switched to those reading glasses that become sunglasses once they stepped outside and embarrassed us all.

Ray-Ban was originally founded in 1937 by an American company Bausch & Lomb. They came up with the first Aviator design after a pilot asked the corporate to style a pair of sunglasses that might stop sunlight damaging his eyes during a flight.

The Aviator design proved popular and was soon getting used by the military , because not only did the sunglasses look pretty damn stylish, but they also completely banned the sun’s rays.
