Though the aviator sunglass design was invented by Ray-Ban, many other high-end sunglass companies have produced their own versions of Aviator sunglasses, including Maui Jim, Serengeti, Persol, and Polo. Additionally, many top clothing designers, like Gucci, Dolce & Gabbana, and Burberry, have also developed their own line of aviator-style sunglasses.
Created in 1956, Wayfarer frames are characterized by a trapezoidal frame shape and thicker rims. Round, oval, diamond, and oblong faces work best with Wayfarers. While Ray-Ban had been successfully making sunglasses since 1937, the Wayfarer was a product that was originally marketed towards men along with other Ray-ban styles.
