Ray-Ban Just Dropped Your New Favorite Sunglasses

It’s hard to find a brand more synonymous with its accessories output than replica ray ban sunglasses are with sunglasses. Impossible, even, considering Ray-Ban is credited with launching the ever-trending aviators back in the 1930s. And the brand often uses that nostalgia play to relate to its customers. Today, the brand launched a fresh version of the favorite: the Marshal.

The Marshal shades are most noticeable because their hexagonal shape; the slightly angular lens is a distinctly different look from a standard aviator shape. The rest of shade feels familiar, using a flat upper bar and the same temple shape as the square-ish General style uses.

The new shape comes in seven colorways, from green and gray gradient lenses, to a gold, silver, and gunmetal, to all black. Prices range from $160-$215. A limited number of shades are available online now.

Almost any pair of sunglasses, even those cheap gas-station shades, can make you instantly look cooler. Decidedly uncool are the benefits that single-digit spectacles can’t afford—like cutting down on glare on sunny or snowy days, and preventing UV rays from slowly cooking your eyeballs. Luxottica, the company behind replica ray ban sunglasses and its iconic Wayfarers, has a very particular recipe for the sandwiched stack of materials that make up its Sun RX prescription lenses.

Cheap ray ban sunglasses encases the entire lens in a layer of silicone resin to protect the surface from scratches and nicks. Applied via wet-bath for uniform coverage, the coating hardens under heat and UV light.

Rather than tinting the lens itself—which could lead to uneven coloration as a result of the prescription-cutting process—Ray- Ban applies color as a separate polycarbonate layer. Dyes mix with the molten raw material prior to molding.
