    Ray Ban

    Ray Ban, American high-end manufacturer of sunglasses, founded in 1937 by Bausch & Lomb. The sunglasses were originally made only for the United States Army Air Corps. It all started when one of the pilots complained to Bauch & Lomb that the sun was distracting him from seeing very well. He suggested to create eyewear which would provide protection but would also look fashionable. One of the styles of those sunglasses, called the Ray-Ban Aviator became extremely popular after General Douglas MacArthur wore them in World War II and was being photographed.
