Ray Ban Sunglasses 1950

Early aviators and proto – wayfarers. Crystal frames, green lenses. The crystal frames sunglasses look pretty close to what would become the iconic wayfarer, but from a couple years before the official introduction of the model. Maybe they weren’t as “groundbreaking” as the current literature would have you believe.
