Trivia

– The Ray-Ban Aviator started out only as functional equipment

Pilots were traveling higher, faster, and further than ever before, yet the strong sun was causing these Icaruses to crash with severe headaches. Nakipag-ugnayan si U.S. Air Force Lieutenant General John MacCready sa Bausch & Lomb, na siyang namahala sa problema at hindi sinasadyang gumawa ng pinakamalaking kontribusyon sa kasaysayan ng eyewear.

– Si General Douglas MacArthur ang nagpasikat ng Ray-Ban nang suotin niya ito noong World War II

Noong Ikalawang Digmaang Pandaigdig, kinunan siya ng mga photojournalist ng mga larawan nang lumapag siya sa isang beach sa bansa, na naging unang pagkakataon na makita ang first global exposure ng naturang shades. Soon after, this brand gained favor with the French Army, providing the commander—who was born in Arkansas—with the much-needed fashion legitimacy.

– Ang unang Ray-Ban prototype ay yari sa plastic that featured lenses with green tint

Ang  green lenses ay nagbigay ng perfect amount of shade to counterbalance ang maliliwanag na white and blue na mula sa araw at kalangitan. Agad ding pinalitan ng Ray-Ban ang mga plastic frame ng prototype ng mga manipis na metal.

– May Transition na noon pa ang Ray-Ban

Transitions lenses were created by Ray-Ban long before Transitions. The Ray-Ban Ambermatic had a hue that changed depending on the illumination when it was originally introduced in 1974. A passionate fan nito ay si Hunter S. Thompson.

– Ray-Ban sales have increased by more than 40% dahil sa mga pelikula ni Tom Cruise. Two times

Tom Cruise restored Ray-Ban sales by about fifty percent in 1983 by exchanging Wayfarers for pants in the movie Risky Business. Matapos ang tatlong taon, he changed his Wayfarers for Aviators, went motorcycling, played some hot volleyball, showered at a girl’s house, at hindi sinasadyang nagbigay sa Ray-Ban ng 40% pagtaas sa sales by returning it to its fighter plane origins. And again, he boosted sales another 15 percent with Rain Man.
