* Framesdirect.com lets you customize Ray-Ban frames and lenses
* Get Ray-Ban sunglasses with your personal prescription
* Specific measurements and any color combination
The day is finally here – you can now customize Ray-Ban sunglasses. Framesdirect.com has just launched a new Ray-Ban customization service that lets you input your own prescription, pick the perfect measurements and create any frame/lens color combination.
This amount of customization is fairly new to the sunglass market, and it’s no surprise that Ray-Ban is one of the first to do it. For 80 years they’ve been shaping the sunglass business and leaving a legacy of classic shapes that just get cooler with age. They’ve had starring roles in classic movies like Easy Rider, Top Gun, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, and many more. So if you’re going to spend some money on a custom pair of sunglasses, Ray-Ban is a great choice.
Some of their most timeless models – the Aviator, Wayfarer, Clubmaster and RB2180 – are among the shapes you can now customize on Framesdirect.com. These Ray-Bans look good on almost any face, but to get the most out of them go for one that’s opposite your own face shape (i.e. if you have a square face, try the circular RB2180).
1. Ray-Ban RB2180
The RB2180 has seen a huge resurgence lately. As mentioned above, it’ll look best on angular or square faces by providing a softening contrast.
2. Ray-Ban Aviator
Ray-Ban Aviators have become synonymous with classic American cool, and they show no sign of losing their spot as a sunglass staple. They look great on almost anyone, but best on square and oval faces.
3. Ray-Ban Wayfarer
The Wayfarer (along with the Aviator) defines Ray-Ban’s iconic character. Although it also looks good on most people, those with angular faces or a strong jaw should consider a different shape.
4. Ray-Ban Clubmaster
Another Ray-Ban classic is the always-charming Clubmaster. They’re charismatic without being loud, and look great on almost anyone.
